Hypnotherapy I’ve found can bring about different reactions. Some people view hypnotherapy as mind control. Others can see it’s an intervention for treating several areas such as, smoking cessation, pain management, relaxation, weight loss, regression work (current and past life) and many more areas. If you are one of the people seeing the many benefits and uses of hypnotherapy then that is fantastic.
It often surprises me when someone will ask if I am going to make them think they are a chicken or if I am going to control their minds. Truth time. I CANNOT CONTROL YOUR MIND. The reality is that there are two kinds of hypnosis; Stage and clinical. Hypnotherapy is clinical hypnosis and is used to treat several areas as mentioned prior. Stage hypnosis is all about putting on a show. I encourage you to go online and search out stage hypnosis and then clinical hypnosis and you will likely see there is a big difference in the two.
Hypnotherapy MYTHS vs. REALITY
1. MYTH: You can get stuck in hypnosis.
REALITY: Your in complete control, go ahead and open your eyes whenever you want, its your choice.
2.MYTH: Hypnosis is sleep.
REALITY: You are aware of everything while in hypnosis.
3. MYTH: Hypnosis is not a natural state.
REALITY: Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind.
I Can’t be Hypnotized
You’ve been in a state of hypnosis. When you first wake-up your in a state of hypnosis. Also, there is a term called highway hypnosis. No your not taken to the nearest highway for treatment. Instead, the term means that as someone is driving they tend to focus on what they are doing which is safe and appropriate. However, this is when someone naturally goes into a hypnotic state. Other examples of when someone tends to go into hypnosis is while reading, listening to music and watching movies and or tv shows.
Hypnotherapy through my private practice is online. I am a Certified Hypnotherapist through the Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). While I will go into more detail about treatment during a consultation, the process is the same whether in-person or online. Since I’ve worked with folks in-person and online I can honestly say there is no difference is the process nor what I do. Both are equally beneficial. So I encourage you to contact me today by email/phone or schedule a consultation. Go ahead!
