What is Hypnosis
Hypnosis is basically a state of highly focused concentration and heightened awareness. You unwittingly experience this natural state every day. It’s just a way of tuning out distracting thoughts and disruptions in your environment, and focusing your attention, just as you do when you’re daydreaming, or when totally absorbed in a book, TV show, or playing computer games, or even when driving.
Hypnosis is believed to work by altering your state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is quietened down, whilst the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. Thus allowing the unconscious mind to come to the fore, where it is able to receive suggestions more effortlessly. The unconscious mind comprises of all your memories and experiences, as well as controlling your automatic thoughts and behaviours. This is the part which has to change for your behaviour and physical state to alter.
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is therapy that is carried out while in hypnosis, and can be thought of as an effective and speedy form of psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy can change your patterns of behaviour and insights, enabling irrational fears, phobias, habits, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. With the help of the hypnotherapist, you are able to look at problems differently and maybe discover solutions to problems that had been missed before. Hypnotherapy and NLP can effectively treat many of the things that you might otherwise have considered visiting a counsellor, for and a lot more.
Using hypnosis to gain access to the unconscious mind allows the therapist to put forward positive and beneficial ideas which become firmly planted in your unconscious. It is also possible to recall and resolve past memories which relate to current blockages. Old, outdated and inappropriate patterns of behaviour can be dropped, in favour of new and more rewarding ways of being.
It is a general assumption that hypnotherapy is limited to dealing with issues such as smoking and excess weight, however a major part of a hypnotherapist’s practice is in dealing with such problems as stress, anxiety, panic attacks, as well as physical complaints such as migraine, arthritis, digestive disorders, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and numerous psychosomatic illnesses.
Are there any dangers in hypnosis?
There are no substantiated cases of harm or injury befalling any hypnotised individual. The British Medical Association approved hypnotherapy as a valid medical treatment in 1955 and the American Medical Association followed in 1958.Read more
