Years ago when I booked to see a Hypnotherapist for the first time, I feared hypnotherapy, but at the same time was sceptical of it really working. I had previously seen a psychoanalyst and the treatment hadn’t fully worked because I was still having panic attacks. After 10 sessions of Hypnotherapy, my panic attacks suddenly disappeared and I was shocked the first time that the panic attack didn’t hit me. Eventually, I wasn’t waiting for a panic attack to happen again, the feelings that had caused these had been released by hypnosis.
I remember when seeing the Hypnotherapist, that he had said if only I would let my conscious mind get out of the way my treatment would work quicker. Some part of me was trying to analyse how the Hypnotherapy was working. Probably because I had been brought up with a scientific mind.
Since then I have looked at a scientific way of proving that Hypnosis works and came up with a couple of measures.
If I sit comfortably in a chair and go into a state of hypnosis. I can hit the state of hypnosis by just closing my eyes, as I have been there that many times. I then suggest to myself that my arm is raising gradually, I may imagine that a ballon is tied to my arm. Eventually, my arm starts to rise just like a rachet, rather than me consciously lifting my arm. It would be hard for anybody to raise their arm this slowly and the instructions for the arm raising come from the subconscious rather than the conscious mind.
If you could imagine wanting to achieve a particular goal, if you put the suggestions into your subconscious mind, they are eventually achieved over time. The arm levitation is a quick achievement of a goal, that is visible consciously, other goals may take much longer and it is sometimes difficult for people to see the cause and effect.
The number of times I have heard clients who have come to see me say that they are really relaxed. But years ago when I used to connect them up to a biofeedback machine, I used to see their heartbeat on a graph gradually drop from 80 bpm to 60 bpm. Many people just aren’t as relaxed as they would like to think they are. I thought it was pretty conclusive evidence to show clients, that Hypnotherapy wasn’t all in their minds on a graph. The only issue was the uncomfortable feeling of the clamps on their fingers.
