Unfortunately this field has been marred by some of the negative affects
of the stage Hypnotist. However, Clinical Hypnotherapy is only used as a
therapeutic aid, and the reality is far different from the fiction that
Hypnosis is a way of using your subconscious knowledge to sort out
deep-seated problems by, by-passing your surface mind, which has a nasty
habit of presenting arguments against your achieving specific goals, such
as; ďIíve tried that before and I canít do it!Ē
Hypnosis provides a bridge between the conscious and unconscious mind thus
allowing you to make the changes necessary. Hypnosis is also sometimes
called the Alpha State or Trance state: you pass through
the alpha state quite naturally at least twice a day-as you are falling
asleep and as you wake up.
ever found yourself loosing all track of time? Have you ever day-dreamed?
Or whilst reading a book, have you ever found that you have totally immersed
yourself into the story and switched off from the outside world?
If so, then congratulations, you have experienced Trance!
Hypnosis, however, is not the same as sleep. During hypnosis, you are aware
of your surroundings at all times. Hearing may also become more acute;
however, background noises will not affect your trance state. When you come
out of trance you often recall all that has been said.
It is important to note that no one can be hypnotised against their will or
be made to do things against their will. Some people will go more deeply
into trance than others, and most find it gets easier with practice. You are
quite capable of bringing yourself out of trance at any time or of rejecting
any suggestions which you may feel are inappropriate - hypnotherapy can only
be successful if you really want it to work.
