Essentially, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. As a subject of hypnosis, the client is always aware and in control. The guide, or hypnotherapist, cannot make anyone do or say anything that the client does not wish for themselves. However, the deep trance like state of hypnosis allows the client to release resistance to change. Every person has a different level of resistance to relaxation and possibly hypnosis, but practically everyone can be hypnotized.* The more analytical the person, the more resistant they might be to hypnosis. It is the responsibility of the guide to build a rapport with the client, and to put them at ease during the first several minutes of the session.

The subconscious mind can be instructed, through hypnotic and post hypnotic suggestion to replace the unwanted habit with a healthier habit.

It is essential that the hypnotherapist induce the client into a level of hypnotic trance that will allow the subject of hypnosis to release resistance to change. The subconscious remembers everything, while the conscious mind often forgets, or possibly disassociates from, the trauma or impetus that led to the unwanted habit or behavior. When the client is hypnotized, the subconscious can be reached, and that is where the transformation can begin. The subconscious mind can be instructed, through hypnotic and post hypnotic suggestion to replace the unwanted habit with a healthier habit. Often, this form of suggestion is so powerful and immune to resistance, that it only takes one session to allow the client to change the unwanted habit with little conscious work on their part.

An effective hypnotic session starts with an interview in which the hypnotherapist assesses the client’s goals and underlying motivations. Any information that the client shares with the hypnotherapist is held in complete and secured confidentiality. The interview is focused on a process that is entirely centered on the client. Together they create suggestions and affirmations that resonate with the client and helps them to change the behavior permanently in a positive, uplifting manner.

Another benefit to experiencing hypnosis is the deep relaxation that accompanies a session, and the feeling of well-being that follows.

Ultimately, hypnosis is a safe and effective way to change habits, as well as invigorating talents and enhancing skills. It is a simple, direct method used to connect with the client’s subconscious, and to transform behavior at the root of the cause. Another benefit to experiencing hypnosis is the deep relaxation that accompanies a session, and the feeling of well-being that follows. Once a client experiences the ability to relax deeply, they can often induce themselves into a hypnotic state and benefit from the well being that emerges from connecting with their subconscious. Hypnosis can truly be life transforming!

*The use of prescribed medications for chronic depression, schizophrenia, or bipolar conditions can inhibit the induction of the hypnotic state. Brain injuries, epilepsy and some cardiac conditions are often contraindicated for hypnosis. Please consult with your physician before seeking the services of a hypnotherapist.
