A few Hypnosis facts

 

  • It doesn't involve mind control, magic, sleep or unconsciousness.
  • No-one can be made to enter hypnosis against their will.
  • Hypnosis is a natural trance state similar to that which happens to most of us when we become absorbed in everyday activities like driving, reading, watching TV or even just daydreaming.
  • Your senses are normally more acute than normal while you're in a hypnotic state.
  • You are in control at all times while in hypnosis.
  • You only say and do in hypnosis what you would be willing to say and do in when in normal consciousness, although you may be able to unlock hidden talents such as half-forgotten foreign languages. See next point.
  • Comedy stage hypnosis looks as if the hypnotist is controlling the volunteers. The fact that they're volunteers means that they're willing to do almost anything to make the show. When it's suggested to a 16 stone guy that he can dance like a ballerina he'll usually do a pretty good impression of one even though he would struggle when in normal consciousness.
  • You can return to normal consciousness any time you want to or feel the need to.
  • The conscious mind makes up about 10% of your total mind power while the subconscious is about 90% & is capable of remembering almost every detail of your life.
  • When you go into hypnosis, you bypass the gatekeeper and can access & change information & habits in the subconscious.
  • Hypnosis gives you the chance to make changes to your life that make achieving your goals much more likely.
  • Hypnosis was approved for use by the BMA (British Medical Association) in 1955 & by the American Medical Association in 1958.
  • Hypnotherapy uses trance, suggestion & the clients own ideas & wishes to adjust habits of thought, feeling and behavior.
  • It can be used to help people cope with everyday problems such as issues related to jobs, hobbies and social activities.
  • Hypnotherapy can aid general self-improvement through strategies such as non-chemical stress management.
  • Hypnotherapists usually work in complementary ways with doctors and other health care providers to help optimise care for clients.
  • Results can be seemingly miraculous when all the time the client had the power in his own mind to make the changes he wanted but just didn't realise it.

 

Efficacy/Results

 
Hypnosis can be one of the fastest ways to make changes, research suggests that some complex issues are resolved in an average of 6 sessions, while Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can make a difference in around 20 (it's been suggested recently that CBT only treats the symptoms rather than deeper issues so the sufferer can relapse but I think more studies need to be done before coming to any conclusions). Here's a link to an article (it's quite a long one) which gives an insight into psychotherapy V CBT etc. Psychotherapy can take much longer if it works at all, and they want to know every little detail of your life before coming up with some theory that you weren't breast fed enough or some such cack. Hypnosis can be content free, as a lot of the time I don't really want or need to know everything about everyone that comes through the door, that means I'm not weighed down with someone else's stuff at the end of every day. That leaves you with your private thoughts private, and the changes to happen in your own powerful mind, using the resources you already have.
