How Can Hypnosis Help You?
Hypnosis is not a magic wand. It cannot "make" you do anything. However, it is a facilitator, a method through which you can tap the resources of your subconscious mind, and work to make the changes that you want to make. Many issues can be resolved or helped through the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy. The following lists just a few of the areas in which hypnosis can help you.
What You Can Expect to Happen in a Hypnotherapy Session
In the initial session, you will complete a form or two that helps the hypnotherapist understand why you have come for hypnotherapy. Then you and the hypnotherapist discuss the issues that brought you, and what you hope to achieve. Any misconceptions or concerns that you may have about hypnosis and the therapeutic process are examined and discussed. Once that is completed, the first hypnosis session begins. You sit comfortably in a chair or recliner.
Once you are ready to go into hypnosis, the process begins and may take a variety of forms. Most people enter a hypnotic trance in response to the spoken suggestions of the therapist. Depending on the purpose of the visit, different therapeutic techniques are used to reach the source of the issues involved. Once the issues are clearly understood, suggestions for change and resolution are given while in hypnosis. When the session is over, you are brought out of hypnosis for a discussion of your experiences while in hypnosis, and the progress you have made. All clients are taught self-hypnosis to continue their personal growth.
The first session can last more than an hour, and subsequent sessions usually last about 50 minutes. Smoking cessation is a longer session. Normally, a course of treatment in hypnotherapy involves several sessions. Occasionally an issue may require additional sessions. No two people are alike, and their issues vary according to the individual. You will be fully aware of all that happens in the session and encouraged to recall everything that occurs, clearly and completely. You and your hypnotherapist work as a team to resolve your issues. Communication is therefore important for the success of the process.
Meet with a hypnotherapist and discuss the possibilities involved with this process. A certified master hypnotist is capable of strategic suggestion while you are in a hypnotic state. Determining which suggestion is the most likely to be effective involves an in-depth discussion with the client.
Every client is different in some way, and many have reservations about the process of hypnotherapy. A subject of hypnosis must be willing to make a change in their lives. The hypnotherapist cannot make a person do anything that they are unwilling to do outside of the therapeutic environment. When traditional efforts to quit smoking have come up short, set up an appointment with a certified hypnotherapy instructor and learn about the alternatives.
Identify and modify the root causes of weight issues at the subconscious level with this approach to hypnotherapy. Over the course of three sessions, the hypnotherapist discusses the client’s individual situation and employs regression to address the causes of the weight issue. The client is taken on a journey that involves shedding a layer of weight each day, and goals are set as part of the visualization process.
Hypnosis is a powerful tool for managing pain. Whether that pain comes from the process of childbirth or a nagging injury that occurred on the gridiron, there are alternatives when the traditional methods fail. After authorization is secured from the client’s doctor, the hypnotherapist can begin to help the client dissociate their mind from the site of any pain.
Anxiety and Stress Management
There are times in our lives that can cause anxiety or stress. In hypnosis we can examine what is causing this, and learn self-hypnosis and other techniques to control them.
A willing client can improve their sense of self-esteem in hypnosis. When a client is taught self-hypnosis, a number of fears can be overcome. The fear of public speaking is managed in hypnosis..
