Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we enter in and out of many times a day, caused by an overloading of message units entering the critical mind, and allowing direct access to the subconcious mind.
Hypnotherapy is a joint venture between client and hypnotherapist, requiring a mutual effort to obtain a positive result. Utilizing this direct link to the subconcious, to assist you in bypassing the critical mind and inputting suggestions that will cause positive change in your life.
Hypnotherapy can help you overcome your fears, improve your relationships, help you achieve success, boost your confidence, lose weight, quit smoking and much more. Most of all hypnotherapy is something you choose to participate in and you are always in complete control of everything you say and do, hypnotherapy and the use of hypnosis for positive change allows you to overcome unknowns, negative thoughts and, fears and make positive changes in your life.
Want to find out more about how hypnotherapy can help you?
There are many misconceptions surrounding hypnosis and hypnotherapy, and whilst some forms of hypnosis can be used by stage performers to entertain an audience, what many people fail to realize is that participants are hand picked for their willingness and suggestability, in other words, if you truly do not want to be hypnotized and deep down you do not want to run around clucking like a chicken or barking like a dog, then no one can ever make you. Hypnotherapy is not like stage hypnosis apart from the fact that you are being hypnotized it differs considrably, with hypnotherapy everyone can be hypnotized as long as you are willing and since you sought out the hypnotherapists help for some kind of positive change in your life, that is usually the case. During your session you are being guided by a professional and you remain in control at all times, you typically begin by discussing the problems you're facing and the changes you would like to see happen in your life, while under hypnosis suggestions are given directly to your subconcious mind, allowing you to make those positive changes and to help you overcome the difficulties you are facing within your self, that you actively want to change.
So just how does hypnosis work, anyway?
Most hypnotists out there including most hypnotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists who practice hypnosis as part of their work are often exclusively using the traditional Ericksonian methods of hypnosis, perhaps they have a few other tools in their belt, but with those traditional methods they are limiting themselves and their effectiveness, as only about half of the population can actually be hypnotized using the Ericksonian methods. Myself and many other Kappassinian-trained hypnotherapists on the other hand, have been trained in the Kappasinian Emotional and Physical suggestibility techniques developed by the late Dr. John G. Kappas, this modern approach to hypnotherapy uses multiple techniques that work with all suggestability types allowing the critical mind to be more easily bypassed, tests are done to find out the suggestibility of each individual client so the hypnotherapist can tailor the session to use the appropriate hypnotic tools and techniques that will work best for your particular suggestability type, having more techniques in your "toolbox" so to speak, allows the hypnotherapist the ability to obtain that direct access to your subconcious mind, bypassing the critical mind and effecting the positive changes you desire, with real results, even if you have failed to be hypnotized in the past.
