Hypnosis is the process by which guided imagery is used to induce a profound relaxed and suggestive trance state in a client. Within this completely natural state, the client can work towards a desired change in their life through hypnotic suggestion.
Hypnotherapy has repeatedly and consistently helped clients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, obesity, addictions, performance anxiety, migraines, grief, sleep, and countless other issues.
The main difference between Hypnotherapy and other methods is the amount of time it takes to penetrate into the subconscious. Using hypnosis techniques like relaxation and guided imagery allows access to the subconscious very quickly whereas other methods may take weeks, months, or years to uncover the subconscious reasons behind the issues affecting clients currently. These reasons can be uncovered in as little as one to two sessions and focus can then be shifted to achieve a deeper and more profound level of healing. The subconscious continues working on the problem even once the session is done.
The subconscious mind contains all of our memories for every moment in our lives. All of the deep seated reactions and habits stem from the perception of those memories and events we have experienced. Using Hypnotherapy to access these moments in our lives that have impacted and shaped our current reality results in a greater awareness of our own issues. This newfound clarity helps to identify root cause of some of the behaviours/habits and starts the process of working towards a desired change. Everyone has within them what they need for their own healing journey!
Many people ask this question because they've attended a show at some point where hypnotism is used for comedy and puts the volunteers in some very precarious and often embarrassing situations. The answer is no. Hypnosis is a natural state that you enter into at least two times a day and sometimes more (waking, falling asleep, driving and etc.). The client is relaxed but also completely aware of what is being spoken and will not do or say anything that goes against their own personal wishes or beliefs. Unfortunately I cannot convince my clients to rob a bank for me under hypnosis (unless it's something they actually want to do!). Hypnotherapy is a collaborative effort between the client and the hypnotherapist and requires the consent and cooperation of both parties to succeed.
Nope. If I were to just get up and walk out of the room in the middle of the session the client might take a while but would eventually come out of hypnosis like they would awakening from a dream. We are in and out of natural trance states often many times throughout
The easiest way to answer this question is to look at your individual provider. Some will cover sessions while others do not. If your provider supplies a health spending account it is possible to use that for your hypnosis session.
