Hypnotherapy is similar to psychotherapy in that it aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational phobias, fears, suppressed emotions and negative thoughts to be overcome. It involves an induction trance-like condition, where the client is in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrated in the hypnotherapist voice. When in this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed. While entering into this state of mind the pulse rate drops, the breathing becomes deeper and slower and the client starts to experience a sense of very deep relaxation. It is then when the therapist is able to help the client, through suggestive work with new ideas, concepts and lifestyles.
How does it work?
When a person visits a hypnotherapist for the first time, there is a specific issue that he/she would like to look at it, or changes to be made in their life. Changes or issues that they are unable to alter in a conscious state of mind. Hypnosis works by altering the state of our consciousness, in such a way that the conscious control of the mind is inhabited and the subconscious mind awoken. This is the part, where the client issue/problem can be explored and transformed behaviours, habits and negative emotions into a more positive outcome. For example, if a person wants to overcome a fear or phobia and tried to do it consciously but still failing as long as the subconscious retains the memory and prevents them to succeed. Under hypnosis, the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed to cancel or alter the belief. Hypnosis can also be used to reinforce and make improvements in certain areas in a person’s life such as students, athletes, entrepreneurs and so on, for better and quicker results.
Hypnotherapy can help people overcome addictions, smoking, alcoholism, nail-biting and also bulimia. Phobias of all kinds respond really well with hypnosis, panic attacks and obsessive behaviour. It can ease physical pain including labour and it is also used for stress and anxiety-related conditions.
