There are many misconceptions about hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
Hypnosis is a powerful technique; it can help you change negative beliefs and achieve your goals. First of all I would like to reassure you that hypnosis is safe. Being hypnotised is not dissimilar to being sleepy or in a daydream. When you are hypnotised you are completely aware of the words being spoken to you by the hypnotherapist.
Hypnosis is a state of mind connected to deep relaxation, narrowed focus and increased suggestibility. Hypnosis is an intermediate state between sleep and wakefulness. Hypnosis can be likened to the state where you act intuitively rather than intellectually.
Hypnotherapy is hypnosis used for therapeutic purposes. Hypnotherapy applies the technique of hypnosis to encourage your concious mind to find solutions to problems.
- These misconceptions that a client may have about hypnosis should be dispelled:
- The technique does not involve you being put into a deep sleep.
- You cannot be made to do anything that you would not ordinarily do.
- You remain fully aware of your surroundings and the situation.
- You are not vulnerable to every command of the therapist
- The therapist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptions to you, the seeds of which become firmly planted.
- Hypnotherapy aims to reprogram patterns of behaviour within the mind enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome.
- Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of conciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert.
- The concious control of the mind is inhibited, and the subconcious mind awoken. Since the subconcious mind is a deeper-seated, more instinctive force, then the concious mind, this is the part that has to change for the client's behaviour and physical state to alter.
- For example, a client who conciously wants to overcome their fear of siders may try everything they can conciously do to it, but will fail as long as their subconcious mind retains this terror and prevents them from succeeding.
- Progress can only be made by reprogramming the subconcious so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are abolished or altered.
