Hypnotherapy - What Is It Really?


Visitors: 161

Many people believe that hypnotherapy is kind of like black magic or believe it is used to control somebody in whichever way you want, this is completely untrue. Hypnotherapy is where the subject is in a state of heightened awareness which allows that person to open their mind a lot more than is usually possible. This heightened state of awareness is usually referred to as a “trance".

As hypnotherapy is usually associated with magicians and shows as such where the subject has been hypnotized and appears to be in a state of mind where they cannot control what they do, people find the idea of doing hypnotherapy very sceptical, but what most people do not understand is that while you are a “trance" by a fully qualified hypnotherapist, you have complete control over your actions and your senses will be at their highest peak. Also hypnotherapy is a practise that requires your consent and your full participation.

As your senses will be in a heightened state you will probably notice more things going on that you would not have normally noticed, you may notice certain noises or have a heightened sense of touch and feelings, therefore you should also be in a very relaxed state.

While hypnotherapy places you in a quite, relaxed state of mind the experience is different and unique to everybody that experiences it. Even though the experience is different for everybody, you are always in control of your actions and doings. These trances can help you bring out memories that you did not even know you had still, as hypnotherapy requires your participation the more you allow yourself to delve inside your memory through these trances, the more you can remember.

Memories that you may not be able to remember through your consciousness may be recalled with even more depth than you first thought. Things that you may not have fully taken in at the time of the incident can be brought up through hypnotherapy. For example say you saw a crime being committed and wasn't fully aware what to concentrate on at the time, like what somebody looks like, using hypnotherapy, when you delve into your memories you may remember what the criminal looked like even though your conscious wasn't paying attention your subconscious was.

Hypnotherapy is not the way of solving a problem but more like a way of resolving a problem as quickly as possible, as safely as possible. It is not a therapy that will fix everything in your life straight away. You will need to work with a hypnotherapist who will help you find the root of a problem and help resolve it from there.

Another thing that hypnotherapy does help you with is the ability to listen and maybe accept positive suggestions that you may usually be slightly wary about. Hypnotherapy also helps you become more open to change, this is a big pro for hypnotherapy as you may need to change a lifestyle or something to that affect to help resolve your problems, and as you will be more willing to accept others opinions and help you may be able to overcome your issue.

Hypnotherapy helps thousands why not try it and see how much you can achieve.
