How Does Hypnotherapy Work?

It is generally accepted that all hypnosis is self hypnosis. A Hypnotherapist helps facilitate and teach the technique using guided relaxation allowing the client to feel calm and safe. This creates a highly engaged and focused level of attention during which the mind becomes very open to suggestion, new ideas, and new ways of thinking and responding.

Hypnotherapy aims to create new response patterns within the brain using the inner resources of the imagination and all the senses. This creates an environment where irrational fears, phobias, anxieties, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions can be safely overcome, and new ways of coping and behaviours can be put into their place.

There are many misconceptions surrounding hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Research shows that hypnotherapy and hypnosis does not involve a person being put to sleep or being put into a trance and a person cannot be made to do anything they do not want to do. During hypnotherapy you remain fully aware of your surroundings and situations, and you are not vulnerable to any given command of the hypnotherapist.

When highly motivated to change hypnotherapy provides quick and effective way to easily change long standing thought patterns and behavioural habits, fear associations and addictions.

Hypnosis is a technique that can be learned, practiced and improved. The readiness and ability to be hypnotised is increased by having multiple sessions, and a number of sessions are usually required to achieve meaningful, long lasting results.
