Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness, usually, but not necessarily, accompanied by relaxation. In this state, heightened inner attention involving both conscious thought and processes below consciousness, makes it possible to bring about desired changes. Even without the use of suggestion, hypnosis facilitates change in old patterns of behavior and feeling. Here I will explain about Hypnosis Therapy.
Can I be Hypnotized?
Yes. Altered states of consciousness occur naturally in everyday life, and even people who do not feel they relax easy will have experienced trance-like states. Most people can therefore learn to experience formal hypnosis and self hypnosis.
Will I Loose Control?
No. One of the major functions of the subconscious mind is to protect us, and this means that some part of the mind is always aware of what is being said and done. The therapist’s role is to guide and encourage, in the best interests of the patient and not to take control.
Can Children be Hypnotized?
Children over about the age of six are excellent hypnotic subjects and can benefit considerably from hypnosis to deal with problems such as bed-wetting, asthma, eczema, school and other phobias and other behavioral difficulties. However, parents should also note that they have a legal responsibility to provide adequate medical care for their children up to the age of 16. Within the law, the term ‘medical’ is taken to mean a medically-qualified practioner.
What do Doctors Think About Hypnotherapy?
As within any profession, opinions vary. Increasingly, however, many doctors are referring patients to hypnotherapists for additional help. Some dentists will also refer patients for help in overcoming fear of dental treatment.
How Do I Know Which Therapist To Choose?
Ask somebody you trust: your GP., or a friend who has received successful hypnotherapy. If you see the letters MAPT after a hypnotherapist’s name in advertising, then they will meet APT’s stringent membership requirements
How Long Will Hypnosis Therapy Take?
Therapy sessions vary in length from therapist to therapist, but are usually around an hour. Can I claim hypnotherapy on my health insurance? Some insurance companies will cover hypnotherapy. Check your policy out and, if in doubt, contact your company.
