What you need to know about Hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is when a person who has an issue, receives Hypnotherapy from a qualified Therapist, who is preferably registered with an approved body and is fully insured. Hypnotherapy can quite often achieve rapid results where other traditional methods have failed.
Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of issues including anxiety and stress, panic attacks, low self-esteem or lack of self-confidence, fears and phobias, weight management, stopping smoking as well as physical conditions such as headaches, pain, skin conditions and IBS symptoms etc.
Hypnosis is a different level of awareness, relaxation and consciousness (trance) which anyone can enter so that for therapeutic purposes, positive suggestions may be given directly to your unconscious/subconscious mind to create new good behaviors or habits. In this way, hypnosis is an effective way of making contact with our inner (unconscious) self, which is both a reservoir of unrecognized potential and knowledge as well as being the unwitting source of many of our own problems.
What is it like to be ‘Put Under, to be Hypnotised?’
If I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question, I would have shares in Wikipedia or maybe Your Local link.
What happens in a Hypnotherapy session?
Generally speaking most Hypnotherapists will carry out a full consultation to get as much information about a person, background and medical history and also to develop rapport and build a trusting relationship. Once the consultation is completed and having found out what the issue is – using information gleaned from a client, I will then carry out a first session of Hypnotherapy. This session helps me to see how a client reacts to Hypnotherapy and to see what level of trance/relaxation can be achieved. I use information from the consultation to give positive suggestions to the unconscious mind. Thereafter, each Hypnotherapy session is customized to suit each client and their issue/s.
You may feel a change in your body (everyone is different), and it might include tingling in your body or a feeling of lightness/heaviness.
You may feel a change in your mind – a slowing down, that internal chatter or your inner critic becoming quiet.
You may not remember everything from the session and your conscious mind may have drifted off. I always try to ensure you’re still awake so that your unconscious mind pays attention to what I’m saying. You may feel deeply relaxed, peaceful and connected with yourself.
Afterwards, you WILL feel more positive, calm, and confident and in control, feeling better than you have felt for a long time.
Hypnotherapy can start working within hours and be more successful where other therapies have failed.
