The truth about how hypnotherapy works and the science that explains why.
It isn’t magic, although the changes and responses from hypnotherapy can seem extraordinary.
Hypnotherapy is often seen as a “alternative therapy”. This makes many people believe that it isn’t well researched or founded on solid evidence. That couldn’t be more wrong. There is so much evidence about how effective it is, with more being released all the time. But how does it work exactly? And why?
With clinical hypnotherapy people are put into a relaxed state tapping into the alpha brain wave activity, where you become more open and receptive to positive suggestions.
Once in a relaxed state, a hypnotherapist can offer suggestions that you can embrace and process. The therapist cannot make any change that you do not want, you are in control. Hypnotherapy simply allows you to be in the best state to get the results and benefits that you want.
With a reputable, experienced therapist, hypnotherapy is the most economical and effective way to change any behaviour, including academic and sports performance.
From the outside a person under hypnosis may seem like they are asleep but they aren’t. A person that has been hypnotised is in an altered consciousness that allows them to access to the subconscious mind that controls all feelings, emotions and behaviours. It is a form of focused attention empowering you to tap into the deepest part of your mind.
Can I get stuck in Hypnosis?
No one can get ‘stuck’ in hypnosis.
Foe example, for people who want to quit smoking it only works if they want and allow it to work. The positive thoughts get pushed to the front of the unconscious mind, and they drown out the old way of the thinking. That’s why hypnosis works so effectively. It helps you get to the root cause of your habit, behaviour or fixation.
Our automatic, unconscious thoughts is often what triggers bad habits, phobias, or negative preconceptions. Change the thoughts, adjust the behaviour. Hypnotherapy is really just the process of how you access the subconscious mind to uncover the beliefs that exist and alter the programming.
No one can be hypnotised if they don’t want to be
Suggestions and moments of reprogramming will only work if you want it to work. Everyone has the ability to experience hypnosis, but three things have to be in place to make it happen:
- Desire – you have to want to go into hypnosis.
- Belief – you have to believe you have the ability relax and accept suggestion.
- Safety – you have to feel safe in the environment you are in and with the person leading you.
When all these things are in place, change can happen. If hypnotherapy is something you want to try, it will be well worth your time.
