What you need to know about Hypnotherapy and Stage Hypnosis
What is Stage Hypnosis?
Have you seen a Stage Hypnotist or the TV shows where people think they have X-ray glasses and they really can see naked people?Now, wouldn’t that be fun at work or on the bus? What about would be James Bonds who, on hearing the theme tune, pretend they have a gun and move around like James Bond? Perhaps you’ve seen someone flapping their arms up and down, clucking and walking like a chicken.
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 or 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.
After a Hypnotherapy session you will feel more positive, calm, confident and in control, you will feel better than you have for a long time.
