Hypnotherapy can sometimes feel like it’s cloaked in mystery. Those who don’t work in the industry or those who haven’t tried it before can feel cautious about what hypnotherapy is and often have questions. Here we bust the myths of Hypnotherapy.
Following is a list of questions we often hear when people want to know more about hypnotherapy. Our hope is to share these answers and encourage more people to consider hypnotherapy and share in the benefits so often achieved.
Can hypnotherapists control me when I’m in a hypnotic state?
This is a common misconception. Hypnotherapists aim to put you in a deeply relaxed state and communicate with your unconscious – and while you’ll be more open to suggestion, you won’t do anything you don’t want to do. Unlike the stage hypnosis where people act and perform, hypnotherapy is a natural deeply relaxed state in which the mind is more receptive to positive suggestion while releasing negatve feelings and behaviours.
Will I remember what happened during my session?
Many people remain somewhat aware of what’s happening in their hypnotherapy session, some feel so relaxed they don’t remember the details. This will vary from person to person, but generally, people finish their session feeling calm, relaxed and excited with their new stronger thoughts and feelings.
What issues can hypnotherapy help me with?
Hypnotherapy can help with a wide range of concerns. Where it really stands out is when a change in thoughts, habit or behaviour is required. The following areas of concern that are highly searched for on our site include:
Weight loss – For those looking to be more mindful with their diet, hypnotherapy can be a helpful way of encouraging more intuitive eating habits. It can adjust your mind to want only healthier foods in smaller portions without the struggle you have experienced in the past.
Anxiety – A hypnotherapist can help those with anxiety learn how to access a calmer state of mind more easily with an increased feeling of relaxation.
Quit smoking –Hypnotherapy can be an excellent method to quit smoking by allowing powerful changes to habits and behaviours. Adjusting your mind to no longer want a cigarette and to take control over that cigarette makes is so easy to quit for good. No withdrawals, no stress, just an easy transition to be smoke-free forever.
Addictions – As with smoking, overcoming other addictions such as alcohol addiction, drug addiction and gambling addiction can be supported with hypnotherapy. It integrates those parts of you that are not in align, in other words, there is often one part of us who wants to take back control while the other louder part is continuing us to indulge. Integrating these parts can work incredibly well so you can be released from these addictions.
Phobias – Many people find hypnotherapy helpful for tackling phobias, including fear of flying, claustrophobia, needles, heights and much more. Your mind has created these illogical fears therefore with adjustment your mind can uncreate them as well.
Insomnia and Sleep issues – Not being able to sleep can affect both mental and physical health over time. Many people use hypnotherapy to help overcome sleep disorders like insomnia. Emptying your mind and relaxing both body and mind can provide comfortable and deep sleep every night, so you awaken refreshed and rested.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – Hypnotherapy is recognised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as an effective treatment for IBS. relaxing the bowel can often have a major effect to soothe and strengthen the bowel to create greater tolerance and internal processing of a variety of previously irritable foods.
Wealth Creation – Most of us are raised with the belief that ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’, or ‘you must work hard, struggle and save before retirement on the pension’. This is rubbish. We all deserve wealth and success. This wealth creation session busts that myth and delivers the Law of Attraction leaving those old beliefs behind to create wealth and success you truly deserve.
Will it work if I’m sceptical?
As mentioned earlier, a hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything you don’t want to. Having a willingness to change and an open mind is key to the success of hypnotherapy. If you go into the session not really wanting to change or totally against the idea of hypnotherapy, you’re unlikely to get the most from it.
How many sessions will I need?
This will depend on the type of hypnotherapy you’re having and the nature of the problem you’re seeking help with. Some people often only need one session, while others will require more treatment. Most issues can be resolved with one session and we often recommend you listen to your session 2 or 3 times to embed all suggestions deeply to make that change you desire.
