​HYPNOTHERAPY

​What is Hypnotherapy And How Does it Differ From Hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy, as the name suggests, is a form of therapy which utilizes the art of hypnosis.

Hypnotherapist's  Job is to Help People.

With  the help of a trained hypnotherapist, to visualize yourself becoming  healthier, happier, more confident, a non-smoker. Whatever it is that  you want to be!

Hypnotherapy,  or self-hypnosis once you''ve learnt to use the tools for yourself, can  be a very effective tool for asking the right kind of 'internal'  questions. For instance, think about the following: What do you want  your life to be like in a year''s time? Make your answer as compelling  as possible - what do you really want it to be like? What changes will  you need to make for this to happen? Don''t just think logically. What  changes will you have to make in the WAY that you think? Could anything  negative happen if you do make these changes? In other words, how much  do you really want it? How about committing to spending the rest of  today thinking over these exciting questions but not actually being  aware that you are doing so? Does this sound a bit strange? It  shouldn't, because that''s what people do when they are described by  others as ''preoccupied'' or ''stressed'' or ''anxious''. This deeper  level of thinking is the level at which hypnotherapy or self-hypnosis  can have proven effects.Hypnotherapy can be used to help many different  conditions such as addictions, phobias and stress related issues. (123)  Other uses of hypnotherapy can help self improvement i.e. help to boost  their confidence, make public speeches (123) etc. Hypnotherapy can be  highly effective if the subject/individual is open minded and receptive -  if the subject is skeptical and has a closed mind, hypnotherapy will  probably have little or no effect.

What  Does Hypnotherapy Involve? Hypnotherapy is a two way process between  the therapist and the client, a professional partnership. A person  cannot be hypnotized unless he or she agrees and co-operates - this  cannot be stressed enough. Also whilst hypnotized, nobody can make you  do anything which you do not want to do. Even those people on television  eating raw onions and pretending to be Madonna are doing it because  they want to! They have chosen to participate. It must be emphasized  here that what hypnotherapists do is, by definition, therapeutic. Stage  hypnosis is very different. It is a form of entertainment.

The  first stage of a hypnotherapy consultation will generally involve an  informal chat and some questions from the therapist to ascertain the  nature of the issue and the necessary route to overcoming or dealing  with it. The next stage is hypnosis.

The  following notes are taken from an information sheet published by the  National Council for Hypnotherapy (please e-mail us for a free copy of  the full brochure). You are led, by means of the hypnotherapist''s  gently guiding voice, into a state where your body and mind are relaxed  and nearly asleep. To an onlooker it might seem as if you were totally  asleep but in fact, though you will normally feel very relaxed, you will  remain awake enough to be aware. Also awake will be those parts of your  mind which the therapist is working with to induce beneficial changes.  This may mean that you will be picturing, as in a daydream, the things  which are being spoken of and that you may experience the associated  pleasant feelings. REMEMBER that if at any time you feel uncomfortable  and want to terminate the session, then you will be perfectly capable of  doing so. After this there is always time left at the end of the  session for you to ask questions or to discuss any experiences you had  whilst you were in the relaxed, hypnotic state. Hopefully one day we  will do away with the strange and mystical stereotype of the  hypnotherapist once and for all. The magic is all in the mind of the  person receiving hypnotherapy. The hypnotist merely helps you to use  that incredible hidden power to achieve things in your life such as  stopping smoking, losing weight, cutting down on stress, gaining in  confidence and happiness, even excelling at your chosen sport.

HYPNOSIS

Hypnosis  refers to a trance like state, in which the subject is a more receptive  state of mind to allow suggestions to be embedded. Not many people  realize that every single day they naturally slipping in and out of  trance type states (such as when someone is concentrating on a piece of  work). Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind. A person cannot be  hypnotized unless he or she agrees and co-operates - this cannot be  stressed enough. Also whilst hypnotized, nobody can make you do anything  which you do not want to do. Even those people on television eating raw  onions and pretending to be Madonna are doing it because they want to!  They have chosen to participate. It must be emphasized here that what  hypnotherapists do is, by definition, therapeutic. Stage hypnosis is  very different. It is a form of entertainment. When under hypnosis  you will feel very relaxed, just like that wonderful feeling when you  are tired lying in your bed and you are so overcome with comfort that  you wish the moment could last forever. . Through simple hypnotic,  relaxation techniques you can easily attain this state at which time it  becomes easy, with the help of a trained hypnotherapist, to visualize  yourself becoming healthier, happier, more confident, a non-smoker.  Whatever it is that you want to be!   Many people claim that they have  never been hypnotized, but they do admit to having drifted off whilst  thinking about a loved one, forgetting large chunks of a car journey  (commonly known as highway hypnosis), or 'going somewhere else' while  reading a book. These are all examples of natural trance states. One of  the great things about hypnosis is that in the hands of a reputable  practitioner it is harmless and produces no damaging side effects,  whilst providing positive therapeutic benefits.
