About Hypnosis

What is hypnosis?

One of the questions I often get asked on an initial consultation or introduction is 'What is hypnosis?' or 'How does hypnosis work'?

It is difficult to describe the actual experience of being hypnotized; neither asleep nor awake, but often characterised by a tremendously pleasant state of relaxation and an altered state of consciousness. In this pleasant and relaxed state, individuals allow the desired, beneficial suggestions to be given directly to the unconscious mind. Thus, hypnosis is a natural and effective way of making contact with the inner (unconscious) self, a source of many of our problems as well as a tremendous reservoir of unrecognised potential strengths and knowledge, ie. the forgotten assets.

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for the treatment and relief of a variety of somatic and psychological symptoms ranging from anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, eczema and psoriasis , IBS, habits and addictions, of course it is a well known strategy for giving up smoking, weight control and eating dissorders.

In Hypnotherapy the patient and hypnotherapist are working together towards a common goal. This therapeutic partnership is the key to a successful outcome. Nobody can ever be hypnotised against their will and, even when hypnotised, people can still reject any of the suggestions given if they believe them to be inappropriate.

 

While there are any number of theories as to what hypnosis is or how it works, they are useful to help in understanding aspects of hypnotherapy, there is little substantive evidence to support them. fMRI imaging has demonstrated clearly that something is happening during hypnosis, however, exactly what that is, or how it makes the phenomena of hypnosis possible is still a mystery. As more information regarding the function of brain and the connection with mind and body is forthcoming, more will be understood, and the remarkable progress of neuroscience will continue to uncover elements of neural processing that relate to hypnotic processes and the use of imagery in influencing physical symptoms and behavioural problems.

About Meditation

What about Meditation?

 

Hypnotherapy isn't for everyone. However, there are many parallels between hypnosis and meditation that mean that the benefits are very similar. Meditation techniques promote relaxation and mental well-being, and form a significant aspect of 'mindfulness therapy'. Meditation classes are an excellent way for beginners to learn how to develop, or for the more experienced to maintain, their meditative practice. Regular meditation has been shown to produce improved concentration and memory, reductions in stress and related anxiety; reduced reliance on other coping strategies which may become problems such as alcohol, shopping, gambling, high risk sports and activities etc. Added to this are the health benefits of improved sleeping, reduced blood pressure and improved immune system performance.

 

A recent study in America claimed to link regular meditation practice with significant immune system benefits. Even considering the inadequacy of the data, Dr Adrian White of the University of Exeter agreed that meditatin appears to have some effect.

I teach meditation skills to individuals and groups, both in the consulting room and in the comfort of their own homes. An evenings meditation with friends makes a great alternative to a product based party. For more information, call George on 01788553060/07732 773 833. or email george@trance4mation.co.uk

The Law of Reversed Effect says...

It applies equally to therapists as well as to their patients.

'The harder you try, the more difficult things become.'

There seems to be some doubt as to the exact number of laws of suggestion. However, everyone is agreed that the Law of Reversed Effect along with The Law of Concentrated Attention have the biggest impact in maintaining dysfunction.
