As many of you may already know I have been studying clinical hypnotherapy for a year now and will be a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist on the 3rd of December (delighted!) This month I would like to explain a little of what it is to those who are not quite sure.

So, what exactly is it?

There are many myths and misconceptions around hypnosis and many of you will have seen hypnotic stage shows where people are up dancing like Elvis or belting out the hits like Whitney has taken the mike and yes, they are actually doing this…but they have to want to participate in the show in the first place. In other words, everyone can be hypnotised (contrary to belief) but you must want to…you are in control. I think it is important to stress that hypnosis is a natural state in all of us and is completely safe when carried out appropriately.

Regardless of what you may have seen in the hypnotic stage shows for entertainment purposes- whilst you are in the trance state you are very much in control.

We all have the ability within us to induce a very pleasant and relaxing state of being, and whilst in this state the subconscious mind becomes stronger, therefore during hypnotherapy, all your sensory functions are at a heightened state and it embeds within your subconscious, using various techniques the therapist works to enable your mind to change or disassociate from any problems you may have locked in your inner thoughts.

Hypnosis is NOT mind control-it is mind work, co-operation is required to enter hypnosis and co-operation is required to stay in hypnosis, so you can never be stuck in the hypnotic state, yes, certain individuals can remain reluctant to emerge from this state but this is purely down to enjoying the nice relaxation a little longer, but they wont stay there long when the therapist terminates their trance state….it is nothing to fear…no one will ever tell anyone their deepest darkest secrets, even if asked.

It has been proven many many years ago from the pioneers Sigmund Freud, Milton Erickson, Emile Coue (to name a few) that with powerful hypnotic therapy you can utilise the most powerful tool you own “your mind” to change a huge number of underlying issues from Self-confidence, addictions/habit breaking, fears & phobias, stress management, Trauma, Anxiety/Depression to pain management & so much more…and your outlook will change forever with this powerful therapy.

It can be that little inner voice always giving you negative self-talk….not being able to close the door on that trauma from the past…or that over eating or smoking/drinking habit making you feel unhealthy or sad…hypnotherapy is your door to the best version of you that you can be.

If you are interested in learning more-feel free to book a free consultation.

I have been practicing on many over the last few months, but I am now taking bookings from January onwards…clinical hypnotherapy at the Reiki Room will include a mixture of Neuro Linguistic Programming and Coaching to enable each & every one of my clients the ability of self-work. Wishing you all a fabulous December & a very Merry Christmas & Happy new Year Ahead… can’t believe we are at the end of another year…big thankyou and appreciation to Lou & Ged for another year of this fantastic little magazine.
