Many of my clients often ask me, “Just what is hypnosis?”
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. It is also a process where the client and the therapist cooperate for the benefit of the client.
What does that mean?
Although the word “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word “sleep” the hypnotized individual is not asleep. Nor are they unconscious. Amazingly, while an individual is hypnotized they are more alert than ever.
I like to say it is a hightened state of awareness. Interestingly, after a session of hypnotherapy most clients express feelings of profound relaxation and peace.
Hypnosis is a feeling that one must experience to fully appreciate.
Hypnotherapy is completely safe. It is very helpful when applied to medical issues: pain control, stress reduction, sexual problems, phobias, insomnia, smoking cessation, weight loss and lack of motivation.
If you, or you doctor, ever thought that your problem is “all in your head”, then hypnotherapy may be your ideal solution. If your mind created your problem, then your mind can also be used to make you well.
The only people who cannot be hypnotized to a depth that will be helpful are the feeble-minded, the insane and the senile. Also very young children who have not yet developed sufficient mind power cannot be hypnotized.
Since hypnosis is a natural state of mind, you do not have to work hard for hypnotherapy to be effective. In fact just the opposite is true.
Whether it is eliminating the smoking habit, losing weight and getting into great shape, hitting a golf ball with more concentration than you ever imagined…or overcoming the fear of rejection in a sales situation…or actually enjoying your next visit to the dentist…hypnotherapy can help you achieve results faster that you ever dreamed possible.
Hypnotherapy is a pleasant and enjoyable way to unlock the potential of your sub-conscious mind.
