Even with it's success and great strides forward, hypnotherapy still has misconceptions and dark areas to clear up. Lets look at the truth with an explanation of the process.
A hypnotherapy session will take place in a comfortable and quiet environment, and during the first session you can talk in confidence about the issues you wish to overcome. It gives you the opportunity to ask questions, and a chance to explain how you are feeling, and your concerns.
If clients have never been allowed to talk or be listened to this may be the first time they get the chance to do so. This alone is therapeutic.
You wil be informed of what will transpire while the hypnosis session is in progress by the hypnotherapist. Everything you need to be able to relax while reaching you goal is provided.
The first session will often take two hours in order for the therapist to get an understanding of the problem and explain the process involved with your therapy, as well as a session of hypnosis. Follow up sessions will often be at least one hour and a half. Hypnotherapy - using hypnosis in therapy - takes advantage of the brain's innate ability to create a very relaxed state of being. Deep relaxation is often called a trance and is a powerful learning tool. When you are hypnotised you are more aware of new concepts, ideas and learning, allowing you to become optimistic about making changes to accomplish your goal.
Hypnosis is similar to day-dreaming, with feelings of deep relaxation and concentration, you sit in a comfortable chair with a pillow behind your neck and a small rug over you, you close your eyes, and the therapist starts talking, hypnosis is brought about by suggestion, beginning with the suggestion of relaxation. When your mind becomes focused on suggestions made by the therapist, your breathing gets slower and more relaxed. It's gentle, relaxing and very powerful.
The suggestions that are put in place during hypnosis are for the purpose of unlocking deep emotions and helping people to overcome phobias, fears, and negative thought processes.
When the therapist brings you out of your hypnosis, you will be left feeling wonderfully alert, relaxed and refreshed. You are then often invited to talk about it if you wish.
Because of the wide range of problems, and personal abilities, the number of sessions required is different for everyone.
