Hypnosis – it’s not what media makes it look like!

Today I want to share some basics about hypnosis. Because many think that it would mean to hand over your brain and memories to someone who can then manipulate it.

It is not. It is in fact more like intense meditation. First of all a hypnosis client needs to agree about the changes they want to see from the session and be open to be guided into the trance state to access the subconscious.

A deep trance state is nothing else than a state of heightened awareness and relaxation achieved through the practice of hypnosis. During this state, the mind becomes more receptive to positive suggestions and insights, allowing individuals to make positive changes in their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions.

The benefits of deep trance states can vary depending on the individual and their specific goals. Some potential benefits include:

  1. Reduced stress and anxiety: Hypnosis can help individuals learn how to manage stress and anxiety more effectively by teaching them relaxation techniques and providing them with positive suggestions.
  2. Overcoming phobias and fears: Hypnosis can help individuals confront and overcome phobias and fears by allowing them to access their subconscious mind and reframe negative thought patterns.
  3. Improved self-confidence and self-esteem: Hypnosis can help individuals develop a more positive self-image and build self-confidence by providing them with positive suggestions and insights.
  4. Changing negative thought patterns and behaviors: Hypnosis can help individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors by allowing them to access their subconscious mind and develop new, positive habits.

It is important to note that hypnosis is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client. The client always remains in control of their thoughts and actions during hypnosis, and the therapist cannot force the client to do anything they do not want to do or reveal any information they are not comfortable sharing.
