CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY: HELPS YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU REACT
Hypnotherapy is a very powerful tool through which you can learn to change your life by changing the way you react to circumstances in your life. It is an artificially induced state of deep relaxation (trance) wherein the client feels comfortable and secure, and, suspended between wakefulness and sleeping, they can accept suggestions and ideas far more readily and uncritically than usual. Trance therefore serves as a created opportunity for change. It is a natural state of mind between waking and sleeping where the client can feel sensations and yet be aware of external impressions. In the hypnotic state, there is virtually no change in mental awareness but nearly always physical changes. We spend around six hours of every day in a state of hypnosis. And since trance is a normal natural state, clients will feel a natural familiarity no matter how deep in trance they go. In the subconscious or hypnotic state, there is virtually no change in mental awareness but nearly always physical changes (warm, heavy, floating, or simply secure) due to relaxation of the para-sympathetic nervous system.
Hypnosis is the most ancient of therapeutic techniques known to human kind. Hypnagogic techniques were used by Assyrian, Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek and Hebrew priests, and African tribes used repetitious beating of drums and chanting while Iroquois Indians used hypnosis on their sick by first inducing a trance state by reflecting light between the patient’s eyes with a shiny object. The production of trance however does not involve any mysterious elements. The formula for hypnosis is simple: misdirected attention + belief + expectation (with imagination as the integrating factor welding belief and expectation into an irresistible force). Modern hypnosis shifts the emphasis in hypnotic therapy from the direct removal of symptoms, to the elimination of their apparent causes. Both Ericksonian and the New Hypnosis (permissive and metaphorical), and Traditional Hypnosis (authoritarian), are the direct routes to the subconscious. Our minds are the most thorough memory bank on this Earth and correct conditioning can help us achieve our goals. The range of benefits achievable through hypnosis is astounding. The acceptance of hypnosis by GP’s has seen many now referring patients to hypnotherapists for pain, smoking cessation stress relief and weight-loss. But hypnosis has many wider applications. These include, but are not limited to:
stress sadness self-confidence fears libido loneliness esteem study sexual prowess addictions
