Clinical Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis is readily accepted by many health professionals as a way to help manage or help improve certain physical conditions as well as some emotional, psychological problems and behaviours.
I might use hypno-psychotherapeutic techniques during therapy which does not always mean you enter an actual hypnotic trance state and I might draw upon full hypnotic trance at times to help remove a pscyhological or emotional block.
All Hypnosis is self hypnosis.
(During Hypnosis, it is not possible to make you do something against your wishes despite what you may see during entertainment shows. If that were really possible, imagine the consequences or indeed the possibilities! )
What is Hypnotherapy/ Clinical Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state whereby we are utterly relaxed and our chattering mind is quiet. While deeply relaxed a Hypnotherapist will make positive suggestions directly to your unconscious mind to assisst you in making changes that you want. You are not 'asleep' while you are under hypnosis and you can not be made to do anything you don't want to do.
What does it feel like?
Hypnotherapy is deeply relaxing. It is a natural state of mind, a little like those moments when you're so engrossed in a film and then suddenly snap out of it (back in the room), that was your brain in a hypnotic state. Most people find it very comfortable and pleasing and are happy to do it again and again.
Is Hypnotherapy Safe?
Hypnotherapy is totally safe and not only that it is healthy to deeply relax the body and mind in this way. As mentionned, it is a very natural state of mind. You are totally awake and very alert- you are not put to sleep. It is not possible for a hypnotherapist to make you do anything that you do not want to do despite what you see on TV. Although they are not set up, hypnosis performances have a very simple explanation.
