Defining hypnosis?

“Hypnosis is a state of intensified attention and receptiveness to an idea or to a set of ideas” – Milton Erickson

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, it’s “the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction”.

Hypnosis can be described as a totally natural occurring state of deep relaxation or trance usually induced by hypnotic induction and suggestion, which is commonly composed of a series of preliminary instructions or suggestions.  This may be delivered by a hypnotherapist to the subject, or may be self-administered.

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. Today practitioner of hypnotherapy regards this as a core truth. You have to want to be hypnotized before a trance state can be achieved.

Hypnosis can also be described as a state of mind, enhanced by mental and physical relaxation, in which our subconscious is able to communicate with our conscious mind.

‘Thanks very much ! I really appreciate the professional manner in which you conducted the session.  I am now a true believer in hypnotherapy for good, and not just for laughs !’ Belinda

Common Myths about hypnosis:

  • Will I lose control?
    During hypnosis you are always in control and no hypnotist can make you perform actions that are against your values or morals. You are in charge and will only consider suggestions that are consistent with your own internal values and beliefs.
  • I can’t be hypnotized. Only certain people can be hypnotized.
    The answer to this question is undoubtedly “virtually everyone”. This claim must, however, be qualified by the observation that some are more readily hypnotisable than others and that it will also depend upon one’s willingness to be hypnotised.
  • Will I remember anything after being in hypnosis?
    While amnesia may occur, people generally remember everything that occurred while they were hypnotized.
  • Can someone hypnotize me against my will?
    No – To be hypnotized you must be willing to participate. You are in control at all times and may choose to accept or not accept any suggestion given. In fact, you can choose to enter or leave the hypnotic state at any time.
  • What if I don’t come out of trance?
    Trance is nothing other than a natural occurring state that can feel no different from being deeply relaxed. Trance is not a zonked out state, but rather a normal natural relaxing state like that feeling of just before you fall asleep. In this state you can decide at anytime to just become more awake and alert like when you are asleep and you wake up.
