Hypnosis – a few questions answered
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis, or ‘trance’, is a focussed state of inner awareness which is usually accompanied by feelings of relaxation. This state of relaxed inner focus allows the sub-conscious mind, the deep, inner part of the mind (I call it the ‘engine room of the mind’) to be more easily connected to. The Therapist will use a variety of methods to work with the sub-conscious to overcome your issues; these may include the use of positive suggestions and visualisations; regression or analytical hypnotherapy to release past traumas; NLP to neutralise negative states, to name just a few. Usually the most experienced Therapists have a large ‘tool bag’ of techniques so have an excellent chance of helping you to a successful resolution of your problems.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
Generally yes. Provided that someone is of sound mind and not under the influence of alcohol or drugs they can be hypnotised. You usually need to co-operate to allow it to happen so that the best results can be achieved.
Will I know what’s going on?
Most people are very aware of everything that’s happening in the session, although some people become so deeply relaxed that they may lose awareness a little. Hypnosis is a totally natural state which we all enter at least 24 times a day (when we day-dream or drive a car on ‘automatic pilot’) and is not a sleep state. Most people are in a very relaxed state of wakefulness.
Are there side-effects or dangers?
Provided that your Therapist is adequately trained and experienced there are no dangers or negative side-effects.
What is the success rate?
Very good when you consider that most Hypnotherapists are dealing with other practitioners’ failures and have to be successful to survive. All reputable practitioners have survived because of their success, often for many years. Although there can be no guarantee of success, as Hypnotherapy is usually a relatively fast process if your treatment programme is not successful you’ll know very quickly and can cease the sessions without wasting a lot of time or money.
What can I expect to happen?
Your first session will usually consist of discussing your issues and being given information about what hypnosis is, followed by the opportunity to experience hypnosis. Often therapy will take place also in the session. At the end of the session you can decide if you would like to book another session (but you will be under no pressure to do so). Further sessions continue the process of working on your issues until they are resolved.
One of them most important things is that you feel comfortable and at ease with your Therapist. For this reason it is recommended that you book a single session first and then decide if you want to proceed with more. Some people require only a few sessions, whereas others may need a course of therapy. As a professional Therapist bound by a strict Code of Ethics I am committed to helping you as swiftly and effectively as possible. Anti-smoking therapy usually consists of one session.
Therapy for Therapists
It is so important for Therapists to be balanced and at ease with themselves in order to be congruent within their role as a people-helper.
Unfortunately, many Therapists are carrying a lot of emotional baggage which they have not worked on, believing that therapy is for their clients but not for them. This idiotic approach often leads to the ‘Wounded Healer’ syndrome, which can produce all sorts of problems and unfortunate dynamics in the therapy room.
So, ‘healer, heal thyself’.
If our clients trust us they invariably look up to us and respect us. We therefore naturally want to be good role models. It isn’t congruent for a Therapist to help being to lose weight if they themselves are very overweight. It isn’t honest if we have severe anxieties or phobias and we’re helping clients to overcome their anxieties or phobias.
It is important that you acknowledge that you have issues and emotional wounds from the past and then undertake a course of therapy to heal them.
Once you do this, you are able to work in a more balanced way with clients. You can then develop ‘ruthless compassion’ in which you have functional boundaries and deep compassion at the same time. You are able to stay separate from your client’s issues and your own insecurities don’t get triggered. Neither do you have to be cold, detached or clinical in order to protect yourself. You can develop your ability for perspective-taking and you can stay present and hold the space for your clients. Perhaps most importantly you can then go with the flow in your clients’ sessions and work intuitively and flexibly, allowing the clients’ inner process to lead you without any need to be in control of it.
Ask any experienced Therapist how it feels when they’re in the flow with a client during a session and they will usually tell you that they love the feeling of ‘smoothness’ as the therapy process unfolds all by itself. The therapist is able to react instinctively and intuitively and facilitate the session without any harsh gear changes. Often, after such a session, the client will state that it all felt so natural and easy to allow their sub-conscious to operate at a higher level to create the changes they need.
I have had the privilege of giving therapy to many Therapists over the years (someone once called me ‘the Therapists’ Therapist). I know from experience that once this is done the Therapist not only becomes a better Therapist but he or she also creates the framework for greater financial success as they remove the blocks that were holding them back and energetically they draw success towards them by giving out a new energy of freedom into the universal energy field.
