Hypnotherapy is an exciting modality. Hypnosis is actually a very natural human trance state. We go in and out of a trance like state many times a day. We daydream and let our minds wander all the time.Have you ever been driving on a familiar road, and can’t remember passing that petrol station or landmark. You were actually in a trance state, and actually fully aware of what you were doing.
Hypnosis is just that. You are in control at all times, and although in a relaxed state you can bring your mind back to the present moment in a flash.
We have so much information held in our subconscious minds, both positive and negative, and all this ‘stuff’ is actually running us. So if you have a negative behaviour that you know is not serving you, yet you keep repeating it, then it is coming from your past learning, and hypnotherapy can change that for you. A habit such as eating that chocolate when you know you will get a headache from it, or it may contribute to your weight problem, but you go ahead and eat it anyway. Or smoking, now we all know how dangerous smoking is to our health, yet there are thousands of people still smoking and still trying to stop. What is it that prevents them for giving up smoking. Hypnotherapy is fantastic in situations like this.
Unfortunately there is a lot of misconception about hypnotherapy because of the stage hypnotists. No-one can make you do or say anything that you don’t want to do or say. The people on stage are simply doing those strange things because they want to. Not because they are ‘under someone’s hypnotic suggestions” . In my opinion, knowing hypnotherapy as I do, probably a lot of stage shows have ‘special participants’ in the audience. After all, a stage show is just that – a show.
