Everything you need to know about hypnotism

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is working with the subconscious, the part of our minds that controls of a lot of our feelings, habits and thoughts. During hypnotherapy, the conscious part of your mind quietens down, allowing the subconscious to take over. Once that happens, the subconscious becomes much more open to taking on positive ideas. Effectively, it’s a way of making changes within the subconscious.

How does a hypnotherapy session work?

It’s a bit like being in a daydream.It is actually a heightened state of awareness.Guided through a relaxation process helping you in to go to a deep, calm part of yourself .

Can anyone be hypnotised?

Yes, but hypnotherapy is not something you can do against your will. It won’t work for someone who has been forced to undergo it; someone whose partner, for instance, insists they quit smoking. That said, anyone has the potential to get into the state of mind where they become more receptive to suggestions. But obviously, wanting to be there and being open to the experience will help things.

What about ‘stage-hypnosis’, the classic scenario where the hypnotist snaps their finger and the participant starts doing a chicken dance - are they actually aware of what they’re doing?

 The people up on the stage have generally been vetted in some way before the show and will be someone who wants to be onstage and part of it. Subconsciously they are committed to going along with whatever the hypnotist asks them. 

With hypnotherapy, you’re in control and you can’t be made to do something you don’t want to do. In a therapy session, it’s about helping the person, not about entertainment.

How much do you have to know about someone for hypnosis to be successful?

The hypnotherapist will have a discussion about you and as sessions go along, people often emerge and we might go more deeply into it. But they don’t have to know every detail of someone’s life in order to help them make a change.

Do people interact during sessions?

Yes, clients might be ask questions to get to the root of things.
