Hypnotherapy is a naturally occurring state of mind that we all experience on a daily basis. Primarily just before we go to sleep at night and first thing when we wake up in a morning. You may also drop into the state of Hypnosis while dozing in the chair on a Sunday afternoon or some other restful time. It’s a very light sleep where you are half awake and at sleep at the same time.
Driving a car or operating machinery
The only time it is dangerous to use Hypnosis is while driving a car or operating machinery. I always warn clients about this each time they come to see me and at the start of all my online downloads. If you were to listen to a recording while driving car, you could suddenly become very relaxed and lose your focus of attention on the road ahead of you. This could then result in an accident. The best time to listen to a Hypnotherapy recording. Is in a quiet comfortable place, where you will be undisturbed for the length of the sessions.
Hitler versus Jesus
Going back to the dangers of Hypnosis. Both of these people used a form of mass Hypnosis. One for the good of man kind. The other for all the wrong reasons. Like anything in life tools can be used for both positive and negative outcomes. This is a very extreme dichotomy.
I remember once talking to a local mental health unit in my local Town about working with their clients. They were really concerned about clients going into a psychosis while under Hypnosis. I know from my own experiences I had exhausted all that the NHS had to offer me and I didn’t want to use medication. Even my doctor was very skeptical of me using Hypnotherapy, but said to carry on if I thought it was helping me. If you feel necessary discuss with your doctor before seeing a Hypnotherapist, but most doctors won’t want to recommend a Hypnotherapist. Local Health practices seem happy to make money from Hypnotherapists advertising their services on their appointment cards, but that is as far as it goes.
There seem to be two dichotomies when it comes to peoples views on Hypnosis. Those who think it they can be made to do something with no effort on their own part, because of stage shows. The others who fear doing something against their will, which isn’t possible. Hypnotherapy takes time and daily use of a tailor made recording, that professional Hypnotherapists should provide you with after each session. It’s not a quick fix solution.
There have been quite a few negative films made about Hypnosis. For instance. Telly Savalas played an evil Hypnotist in a Bond film. “On Her Majestys secret service”. No wonder people get the wrong impression of hypnosis.
Hypnosis expands the state of mind you go into last thing at night and first thing in a morning, by a skilled Hypnotherapist guiding you into a deep trance like state using language. Once in a deep trance like state of mind positive suggestions are made into your subconscious mind. Unless the session is recorded onto a CD for you to take away you will be coming back to see the Hypnotherapist for years to attain goals. It is so important to listen to the tailor made session you are given after each Hypnotherapy session on a daily basis. I see clients monthly and it takes between 1 to 5 sessions to help clients achieve a goal.
The more secure you feel with Hypnosis, the deeper you will go into trance. There is going to be some apprehension the first time you use Hypnosis, but once you have gotten over this initial hurdle, you will find yourself letting go the more you use Hypnotherapy. It’s a little bit like abseiling when you go over the cliff edge, but once you feel the security of the rope, you enjoy the experience.
If it was suggested to do something that goes against your belief’s and values, it would immediately bring you out of a trance.
Can I get stuck in Hypnosis?
We all wake up in the morning after sleep. The same with Hypnosis, you can’t get stuck in it, you would open your eyes when you are ready to. You would probably get bored of just being in a trance and decide to open your eyes. I always tell people that they can open their eyes and move anytime they choose at the start of my sessions. If you ever feel in danger while under trance, you will open your eyes and ensure your safety and survival above anything else. A loud bang in the room our outside would make you jump out of the Hypnotic state.
Choosing an Hypnotherapist
I always recommend that you choose a Hypnotherapist by recommendation from somebody you know. Trust that your subconscious mind will direct you to a good Hypnotherapist.
All the best
