The most important thing for you to know is that All Hypnosis is Self-Hypnosis. No-one can hypnotise you because you are hypnotising yourself.
Hypnosis is nothing more than a deep state of focused concentration – a state of heightened suggestibility where we can bypass the critical factor of the conscious mind and access the subconscious mind, where all of our beliefs (both positive and negative) and memories are stored.
The second important thing is that HYPNOSIS IS NOT SLEEP. Many people have the misconception that they are just going to sit in a comfortable chair and go to sleep for an hour or so, then wake up with all their problems magically resolved. Not so! The therapy requires your 100% commitment and a lot of hard work on both sides. I tell my clients ‘If I had a magic wand I could wave and suddenly make you better, I would have people queuing for miles down the road to see me! Not to mention the fact that I would be a multi-millionaire…‘
You’ve probably seen stage hypnosis at some time?
Well, clinical hypnotherapy is not the same. If you are watching someone who has been hypnotised on stage, it may look as though they don’t know what’s happening to them. In fact, even though they have allowed themselves to be hypnotised, they are totally aware of what they are saying or doing, and are choosing to follow the hypnotist’s instructions, in order to satisfy an urge to have the experience and be a Star for a short while. With hypnotherapy, the main difference is that you are working to resolve an issue which is holding you back in your life.
You can never be made to say, or do, anything you don’t want to, and if I or anyone else were to give you suggestions that you didn’t morally approve of, you would come out of hypnosis.
You will never reveal any information involuntarily, or be made to act in an inappropriate way. You are always in control, but at the same time you are also very deeply relaxed.
Whilst you are in hypnosis, your subconscious mind is open and receptive to the suggestions given to you, providing they are the suggestions that you consciously want to take effect. You will be able to hear everything during the hypnosis session and you’ll be aware of, but not concerned with, outside noises and movements.
After the session is finished, you will remember almost everything that has been said, either by yourself or the hypnotherapist. More importantly, your subconscious will have heard absolutely everything, and will have started to make the necessary changes to reframe or remove the negative patterns and limiting beliefs that have been stopping you from being successful at what you came into this world to achieve.
After the hypnosis session the only difference you may be aware of is that you feel more relaxed than usual, and you will begin to feel differently about your issues. When you leave my consulting room, you will be able to drive or go straight back to work or do whatever you need to do. In between the sessions, you may find yourself feeling a little more ‘stirred-up’, but that’s perfectly OK, and actually means that the hypnotherapy is working! Imagine emptying a very cluttered and untidy cupboard. You’d have to take everything out and check to see what you want to keep and what you want to throw away, before neatly putting the things you really want to keep back into the cupboard. This involves making even more of a mess for a very short period of time, but you are so happy to have got that cupboard finally sorted that you don’t mind that temporary mess one little bit!
Practice makes perfect, so you will find that every session of hypnosis is at least ten times more powerful that the previous one. By the time you complete your course of hypnotherapy, you will have removed or reframed the negative thoughts, feelings, beliefs and misperceptions associated with the issue you wanted to resolve. Once free of all the negative energy that you have been using to not only contains your uncomfortable emotions, but also to keep the lid on them, you will feel lighter, brighter, and very much more confident and have more energy and enthusiasm than you thought possible. Hypnotherapy with a highly-trained and experienced therapist really can change your life.
