Most of us experience behaviours, negative habits or thoughts feeling we are not able to control them. Hypnotherapy assists the person to regain their control and manage their behaviours faster than most therapeutic models.
Hypnotherapy is a natural process in which your mind is more receptive to positive suggestions while releasing negative feelings. It aids the minds ability to rapidly integrate new skills, strategies and strengths. It is an alternative healing method that is used to create subconscious change in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviours or feelings. Hypnotherapy gently releases blocks and fears, creating a new inner belief to make changes in the way you think, feel and behave.
As an example, Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help boost confidence and self-belief, while reducing feelings of fear and intense worry. It can help you develop the ability to access the calm state of mind needed to overcome the often-overwhelming emotions you are living with.
Hypnotherapy has become recognized as an effective treatment for many individuals with depression. Recent studies have shown that hypnotherapy is more effective than cognitive-behavioral therapy, which is the most common therapy approach in treating clinical depression.
Hypnotherapy can alleviate the sensory and affective components of pain. Chronic conditions can be assisted by deflecting focus away from the painful area. When our mind is away from any pain, the feeling of discomfort reduces significantly. Research has found that hypnotherapy is associated with significant reductions in ratings of pain, need for analgesics or sedation, nausea and vomiting, and length of stay in hospitals. Hypnotherapy has also been associated with better overall outcome after medical treatment and greater physiological stability. Surgeons and other health providers have reported significantly higher degrees of recovery with their patients treated with hypnotherapy.
What happens during hypnosis?
Typically, you will sit down in a comfortable chair. The therapist will gently guide you to a state of relaxation. Some people will feel very at peace; others may feel light while others may say they don’t feel anything at all. Regardless, the goal is to get as relaxed and calm as possible.
The therapist will then begin to make new suggestions to you while you are in this state. The basic premise is to place new, powerful and beneficial thoughts into your subconscious mind, so you will be able to adjust those negative thoughts and behaviours you want to be changed. After the session is completed, you feel alert and refreshed.
Everyone can benefit from hypnotherapy.
Some people believe they cannot be hypnotized. Every human is hypnotized on a daily basis. If you have ever daydreamt, lost yourself in a show, book or while gazing out through a window, then you have hypnotized yourself. It is the feeling of being lost in mind, time flying past, focused on something other than the present. That is a trance hypnotic state. How nice that feels. When guided down toward a deeper relaxed feeling, your mind can make the positive changes you want. You will only do what it is you want or desire to do.
