What is Hypnosis?

Some Misconceptions About Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

 

Many clients think that clinical hypnosis will be the same as stage hypnosis. They may expect to be 'put to sleep' and when this doesn't happen they think they are not hypnotized. I tell my clients that everyone is different - some go into a very deep trance and remember nothing at all about it afterward - others may stay in a lighter state - but more often than not they will drift in and out of different levels of consciousness and awareness.

Hypnosis simply communicates with your subconscious mind. The 90% of your brain that stores your memory, behaviors, programming, and habits. The other 10% is your decision-making area. Hypnosis works to "reframe" thinking but changing the way you think or perceive something. It is non-invasive and safe. 

You may be nervous about giving away secrets in hypnosis:


Evidence shows that people can't be made to say or do anything at all against their own moral judgment. Deception can happen - but can't it anyway? You don't need to be hypnotized for that to occur. I tell clients that if I, or anyone else, was to try to make them do or say something against their will they wouldn't do it, they would simply come out of the trance.

Perhaps you can't visualize the scenes a hypnotist suggests or feel your "can't" be hypnotized. 

Many people perceive things differently. Some are visual, some more auditory and some like to "feel" things. A good therapist will determine your way of feeling prior to a session and will have the session completely tailored to your needs. This will allow you to go into a deep state of trace easier and for the work that needs to be done, begin. This is ok and you are still under hypnosis. The therapist is communicating with your "subconscious" mind. 

Outside distractions 

This is not an issue because the session can easily pull you back into a trance state. It can also be completely normal because you are in a heightened state of awareness. 

Can you get stuck in hypnosis?

No, You will drift into and out of a trance state, your conscious mind is always aware and can take control at any time. 

How will you feel? 

You will always only go as deep as you want to. You may feel as if your body is heavy or even the reverse, light, and floaty. Some feel warm and tingling sensations however you are always comfortable. When the conscious mind relaxes the energy within the body move and shifts which is excellent for physical balance. 

Your story is important:

It is imperative that a hypnotist initially sits down with you to determine your story. What brought you here, what do you want to accomplish and how do you see your end goal? The way you describe things is vitally important fr your sessions to be structured to fit you personally. No session is cookie-cutter, and should never be. 

Your mind may wander: 

It is normal for daily thoughts to creep in initially until you have had a few sessions. It's ok, the brain needs to be strengthened the same as other muscles in the body. The more sessions you receive the more you will notice that the daily thoughts, worries, and stresses become less and less. 

How will you know if you are hypnotized? 

There is no clear answer as everyone is different. Some recognize it and some do not. Some drift quickly and some it is a more gradual and progressive process. That's ok, as your therapist will note ques and will work with those throughout the session. 

Will I do things I do not want to? 

No, your conscious mind is in control at all times. 

I have seen stage shows and I am nervous. I do not want to be embarrassed: 

We do not support nor endorse the use of this therapy as a means for entertainment. We feel it lessons the understanding of its powerful ability to create long and lasting results for change within people. 

You will never be placed in a trance where you "cluck like a chicken". 

Is Hypnosis guaranteed to achieve results? 

Not much in life is guaranteed. However, if you are passionate and determined to create the change you will see results. An example is Gastric Band Hypnosis for weight loss, scientific studies have shown a 95% success rate. 

Some issues may have deep-seated programming that needs to be peeled away first. One session may not be enough for you however with a firm road map that is followed and a strong commitment you WILL see success.
