The mere mention of hypnotherapy sends some people running for the hills as they hold a common misconception that,
if they were to try it, would be rendered unconscious, out of control, cluck like a chicken or, much worse, reveal intimate
or personal details.
Well, I can assure you that isn’t the case. You will definitely not become unconscious and you will be aware of everything at all times. You will be in total control and cannot be made to do anything against your will. What you will be however, is in a highly relaxed but heightened state of focus and acute awareness. You will still be alert, can still hear and also be able to respond to questions. The whole object of hypnotherapy is to regain the control that has been lost and which has resulted in the problem that you now face.
Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that uses the power of positive suggestion to bring about a change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It is in this hypnotic state that the mind becomes more receptive and allows the creative parts of our brain to utilize the suggestions and facilitate the desired change. Simply speaking, hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness that enables a client to achieve a therapeutic resolution to a problem.
The subconscious mind is identified with the autonomic nervous system. This system regulates our body temperature,
digestion and blood sugar plus many other processes but when it is disrupted by prolonged emotional disturbances,
it can result in mental or physical illness or both.
Our bodies are so complex and responsive to stimuli, whether that be an emotion or even a mere thought, which may or may not be factual but nevertheless, can trigger a release of brain chemicals, creating a myriad of physiological reactions in our body such as a release of adrenalin, an increase in heart-rate, raised blood pressure or even a tummy upset.
No wonder then that for someone with anxiety or depression, they can feel so poorly!
Under hypnosis, the conscious, rational part of our brain is temporarily bypassed allowing the subconscious part,
which influences mental and physical functions, to be receptive to therapy.
The National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) has recognised hypnotherapy as a possible treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in those who haven’t responded to other treatments and hypnotherapy has slowly been gaining more interest in the medical world. Using hypnotherapy alongside other techniques such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and also alongside Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I have been witness to some amazing life changes that have taken place for some individuals.
This list is not exhaustive but is an idea of the range of conditions helped by hypnotherapy:
• Anger Management
• Childbirth (Hypnobirthing)
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
• Pain control
• Panic Attacks
• Phobia and Fears
• Stress / Anxieties
• Sexual Abuse
