Why use hypnotherapy?
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be used to help people with:
There is no exact definition of Hypnosis but it is generally accepted that contrary to what many people believe, hypnosis is not always a trance state or a sleep state even though a person in hypnosis may appear to be sleeping.
‘Hypnosis is really natural state of mind and is an important part of everyday life. Whenever our mind wanders, daydreams or is focused on something, such as reading a book, driving a familiar route, watching a film we are in a state of hypnosis.’ (NCH)
People often have a misconception of Hypnosis, picturing the entertainment Hypnotist shows on TV where people are made to dance like a chicken or seem to drop into an unconscious, sleep state at the click of a finger. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind; people are often surprised that they hear every word and could get up and walk out of the room at any moment. Unless you enter a deeper state, you may not seem any different, just very relaxed.
‘It’s similar to drifting off to sleep at night, that stage when you are not quite awake and not quite asleep, you may feel a sense of weightlessness or you may feel heaviness as all your muscles relax. Everyone experiences it differently, and your therapist will be able to reassure you and help you relax and enjoy the experience.’ (NCH)
Most people are surprised at just how relaxing it is.
In situations where you are in a hypnotic trance, such as reading a book, you still have the power to emerge from that state if you want to. Whatever or whomever hypnotizes you; you always have the power to resist.
‘When you realize that you are the one in control, when you decide how deeply into hypnosis you wish to go, then you become aware of what hypnosis is. A hypnotherapist is a guide and helps you on a journey, but the change can only be made by you.’ (NCH)
Many people feel empowered when they realize that they are in control and will be making the changes themselves.
