What is a hypnotherapist? What The Experts Say…
A hypnosis practitioner is a teacher, guide, coach, trainer and motivator who assists clients in resolving issues, overcoming challenges and attaining goals. The hypnosis practitioner assists clients with situational stress, changing limiting beliefs, altering habits, and increasing motivation. The techniques used in hypnosis include visualizations, guided imagery and meditation, among others.
Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnosis techniques to interact with the subconscious mind in an open, cooperative process to create the changes you seek. Hypnotherapy is used to motivate and embrace new, positive thoughts and beliefs and achieve personal goals such as positive change, self-empowerment, behavior modification, wellness, happiness, peak performance, success, peace and harmony.
America’s leading psychiatrists have conducted experiments on volunteers that have proven how much the brain influences our thoughts when in a state of hypnosis. Given that the subconscious mind is responsible for 90% of our actions – if we can change our mind – we can change our behavior too.
What Is Hypnosis?
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. It is a state of relaxed focus, which allows your conscious (thinking) mind to be quieted, and your subconscious (emotional) mind becomes more aware and alert. You cannot be made to say or do anything that is against your personal, moral or religious beliefs. You are always aware and in control.
Hypnosis is something you have already experienced many times in your everyday life. When you watch TV, use your imagination, daydream, are lost in a movie or some focused activity, and you lose all track of time – you are experiencing a state similar to hypnosis. When you drive your car on a familiar route on autopilot and miss your exit, you are in a state of hypnosis. These are all a form of altered states of consciousness, or a light trance state.
Because the subconscious mind is a deep-seated, more instinctive force, it is this part of the brain that listens to the words the practitioner is using – and uses them to re-program negative patterns to create behavior modification.
So how exactly does it work?
With the guidance and assistance of the practitioner, you allow yourself to get into a deeply relaxed state. The practitioner works in partnership with you using techniques such as visualizations, guided imagery and meditation, to assist you in releasing or changing the way you relate to fears, phobias, beliefs and habits at the deeper subconscious level.
Can I be Hypnotized?
Yes. If you are willing and want to be hypnotized, you can access a hypnotic state. First we discuss information regarding the issue you wish to work on. We can do a few exercises to help you to relax and let go of any expectations. You will then be verbally guided into a peaceful, calm state of being. As you continue to relax and your thinking mind quiets, you may begin to feel like you are dreaming. Your subconscious mind however, becomes very focused and aware, as you are guided through the hypnosis work. Once complete, you will return to full waking consciousness, feeling relaxed, refreshed, and even more at peace.
Will I remember the experience?
Yes, you should be able to recall the highlights of the experience. Your conscious mind, while stepped aside, was still aware of what you were doing. Its like part of your mind knows that you are having a conversation, and another part of your mind tunes out the distractions and just pays attention to the memories or information coming up. Sessions can be recorded for future reference in recalling your session.
