Hypnosis and Stopping Smoking

Quitting or stopping smoking has been a huge struggle for many people for years.  And there are several major hurdles to beat.  But unfortunately for smokers the only problems they foresee and try to beat are their nicotine addiction and the withdrawal symptoms that follow.  more

 

 

SPORTS HYPNOTHERAPY

For both elite and amateur athletes, regardless of their sport, the desire for constant improvement is a characteristic that inspires them to be their best. On-the-field practical training alone however is often not enough for these aspirations, and off-the-field mental development is now widely considered to be an essential part of any sportsperson’s training regime. 

As sports professionalism increases around the world, and athletes enjoy the opportunity to train fulltime, it is fast becoming recognised that psychology in sport can be a great asset to both individuals and teams.  more

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY

Cognitive behaviour therapy is a flexible approach in changing maladaptive or rigid ways of thinking and feeling. It is not the events themselves, purely the meaning a person gives them. Negative / anxious thought patterns that build over time, become a belief system and fail to change. By identifying these negative or distorted perceptions, the therapist / clinician can evaluate and change the way the patient / client is thinking and ultimately feeling. more

 

 

 

ABOUT HYPNOTHERAPY

WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY USED FOR?

The aim of Hypnotherapy is to bring about beneficial changes to certain problems which have their origins in the mind.

  

There are many branches of hypnotherapy and hundreds of uses.

Probably the most widely known use is to help people to stop smoking.   However,  hypnotherapy is also used to break many other habits,  and to strengthen self-control.

 

Hypnotherapy is used to overcome stress – and stress related ailments.

 

It is very useful for calming nerves,  and overcoming fears and phobias – and it is wonderful for general confidence boosting.

 

Where the problems are more complex and there are deeper psychological indications,  Hypnotherapy can be used in an analytical capacity,  to give an insight into the subconscious triggers which can cause many unexplained symptoms.  

 

More specialized branches can even deal with pain relief.   You may have heard of Hypnosis being used as a natural anaesthetic  in surgical operations,  or to help with childbirth.

 

Most Hypnotherapists cover a wide range of subjects,  but Individual therapists will supply you with a list of the specific problems they treat.

Occasionally individual therapists may specialise in certain areas which are of particular interest to them.

WHAT IS HYPNOSIS ?

 

Hypnosis (hypnotic trance) is an altered state of consciousness in which it is possible to communicate with the subconscious mind.

 

You may be surprised to know that it is a very common state which everybody automatically drifts in an out of from time to time.

 

You know how it is when you get thoroughly lost in a beautiful piece of music,  or a good book,  or a daydream.   Your attention is completely captured and everyday reality fades into the background as your mind carries you away to a different world of the imagination.

You are still conscious,  but your consciousness is temporarily altered.   Well believe it or not, that is a form of trance.

In fact we all go through a similar phase just before we go to sleep.

 

When you are being hypnotised,  you are guided by the Hypnotist into this same kind of trance state somewhere between being asleep and being awake,  and this is called a hypnotic trance.  It is a very pleasant feeling of calmness and deep relaxation.

 

Contrary to popular belief,  when you are hypnotised you are not asleep or unconscious.   You will normally have your eyes closed,  but you can still hear and feel and even speak.   Indeed,  your concentration and awareness actually become heightened.

 

Different people can experience hypnosis in slightly different ways.   Some people may notice that they feel rather heavy,  whilst others may feel light and ‘floaty.’   Often the closed eyelids can flutter a little here and there,  or there may be a slight tingling sensation in various parts of the body.   However some people experience nothing at all, other than a feeling of deep relaxation.  The experience of hypnosis is a very personal thing,  but basically, it is just a very calm and pleasant feeling – rather like being in a daydream

 

The main requirement to enter hypnotic trance is relaxation,  and for most people this is a very gradual process.

 

For some people, entering hypnosis can be rather disappointing because they expect to suddenly ‘go under’ some strange spell and feel extremely weird - but it isn’t like that at all.

For most people,  there is no sudden feeling of ‘going under’ hypnosis. 

Sometimes individuals may doubt that they are actually being hypnotised at all because they do not experience the sudden loss of consciousness they expected. 

It is quite important that your expectations of hypnosis are realistic, and you understand that it is a gradual, drifting process.   It is important you should understand this because during the induction into hypnosis,  if you are  mentally interfering all the time by constantly thinking that you are not ‘going under’,  this in itself can disrupt the whole process of gradual relaxation.

 

All you need to do, is to let yourself go, and concentrate on your Hypnotherapist’s voice so that he or she can help you to relax.

When the body and the conscious mind have been sufficiently relaxed,  the normal barriers to the subconscious part of the mind also become relaxed,  and the subconscious becomes receptive to positive suggestion.

 

WHAT IS POSITIVE SUGGESTION?

 

A positive suggestion is a positively worded statement or command, which is given (or suggested) to the subconscious mind.

 

In the relaxed state of hypnosis,  the subconscious mind becomes receptive and can accept and store the positive suggestion,  and subsequently act upon it.

For instance,  a smoker can have it suggested to him that he is now a non-smoker,  and that suggestion is then left in the subconscious mind,  so that the person no longer wishes to smoke.

However,  for the suggestion to be properly accepted into the subconscious mind, it is important that the smoker really wants to give up the habit. 

 

In brief,  positive suggestions can re-programme the mind to bring about beneficial changes.

 

WHAT IS THE SUBCONSCIOUS (sometimes called the UNCONSCIOUS) MIND?

 

That is a big question –and this is a very brief answer.

 

Your mind consists of two parts;  the CONSCIOUS and the SUBCONSCIOUS.  

 

The CONSCIOUS mind inhabits the surface level.   This part of the mind is where you do all your everyday conscious thinking.

 

At a deeper level,  we have the SUBCONSCIOUS mind,  and this part of the mind deals with your unconscious actions – the things you do automatically.

 

In the subconscious you keep your habits,  and also your habitual fears - and from here all your automatic responses are triggered .

 

The subconscious also stores your memories – and all the things that have had a hand in making you what you are today.

 

HOW IS A HYPNOTIC TRANCE INDUCED?

 

There are several ways to induce hypnosis,  and different Hypnotists will use their own favourite methods.   Stage Hypnotists and Hypnotherapists may employ different methods.

  

Some Hypnotherapists like to start with some form of fascination.   They may ask you to concentrate on a revolving spiral,  or some other object.  But don’t be disappointed if this technique is not used,  as it is just a variation,  not a necessity.

Honestly,  not many people ask you to gaze into their ‘piercing eyes,’  or stare at a swinging watch these days.   That sort of thing has more to do with old fashioned Hollywood movies than modern Hypnotherapy.

  

Most Hypnotherapists use relaxation techniques,  and you are also likely to be asked to concentrate on certain things.   For instance you may be asked to focus your attention on your breathing,  or to imagine various things.

 

During the induction,  the therapist is likely to speak to you in a particular way,  and at a particular tempo,  which is designed to gently slow down the brainwaves.   This will help you to gradually drift into the pleasant state of hypnotic trance, in which you will experience feelings of relaxation and well-being.

 

Words like “relax,” “deeper,” and “sleep” or “sleepy” are often used in the induction.   However,  these words are not intended to send you to sleep.   They are merely calming words which send special messages to the brain to help you to become very relaxed and tranquil.  

 

Hypnosis is not a state of being unconscious,  but merely of having your consciousness altered – indeed your mind remains clear and focused, and you are likely to remember most of what was said to you.

 

Some people are very easy to hypnotise,  whilst others take longer.

Most people remain in a fairly light state of hypnotic trance,  whilst a very small percentage naturally go to much deeper levels.   Sometimes people drift in and out of lighter and deeper states.   All this is perfectly normal. 

Deep states of hypnosis are not required for successful therapy.

 

COULD I BE HYPNOTIZED AGAINST MY WILL?

 

No,  your co-operation is required

 

CAN ANYBODY BE HYPNOTISED,  OR DO YOU HAVE TO BE WEAK MINDED?

 

On the contrary,  you need a reasonable amount of intelligence in order to be hypnotised.   The people who respond best to hypnosis are those who are  capable of concentration,  imagination and mental dexterity. 

 

Most people can be hypnotised.    The exceptions are those who are mentally subnormal,  young children,  or those who are ‘high’  on drugs or alcohol.

Everybody else (who properly co-operates with the process) can be hypnotized.  

Obviously,  if somebody cannot understand what is required if them,  or if they are resisting for some reason,   they will have difficulty entering into hypnosis.

 

WILL I LOSE CONTROL OF MYSELF and COULD I BE MADE TO SAY OR DO ANYTHING AGAINST MY WILL OR NATURE?

 

No.   You will know what is going on and you will retain your intelligence and your self-control.  

 

Hypnotherapy requires the client and the therapist to work together in a spirit of co-operation, in order to help you to control your own mind.

 

For Hypnotherapy to be successful,  you need to be comfortable with what is going on in the session.

If any suggestion was given to you with which you did not agree,  you could reject it.   If anything was suggested to you that went against your beliefs or moral code you would be shocked out of hypnosis.

 

IF YOU DON’T LOSE CONTROL,  WHAT ABOUT THOSE STAGE SHOWS WHERE PEOPLE DO ALL SORTS OF SILLY THINGS?

 

Successful stage hypnosis requires willing volunteers.

These people obviously have a desire to join in the show and perform, or they wouldn’t volunteer to go on stage in the first place.  

Hypnosis merely helps them to lift the inhibitions which they may ordinarily have against performing.

 

Please do not confuse Stage Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.  The aims are very different

 

IS HYPNOSIS DANGEROUS and ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

 

Hypnotherapy is not dangerous.  In skilled hands Hypnotherapy is a proven therapeutic aid.  NO drugs should ever be used, and there are no unwanted side effects. 

 

We hope that you now have a clearer understanding of Hypnosis and it’s uses.  

 

In addition to the information we have given, most therapists will be able to provide you with their own informative material when you contact them,  and should be able to answer any additional questions you may have. 

 

If you contact a Hypnotherapist listed on this register,  please mention that you have obtained their details from HypnotherapistRegister.com

 

SO HOW DO YOU FIND A GOOD HYPNOTHERAPIST?

 

Probably the best way to find a successful Hypnotherapist is by recommendation – so ask around.   Clients who have been satisfied with their treatment are often happy to recommend their Hypnotherapist.

It is important that clients feel comfortable with, and have faith in their Hypnotherapist,  and satisfied clients are the best form of advertising any Hypnotherapist could possibly have.

 

In addition,  many Doctors are now becoming much more open minded about alternative therapies and sometimes get to hear about the success rates of the alternative practitioners their patients have visited.   Therefore your G.P. may be able to recommend a Hypnotherapist in your area.

 

Other than that – contact a few therapists and see what you think of them.

When you first contact a Hypnotherapist,  he or she will usually be able to provide you with a leaflet or brochure explaining about their qualifications and the services they offer.   You should also be given a list of fees and an idea of how many sessions are likely to be needed.  

When you are speaking to the Hypnotherapist on the telephone,  do not be afraid to ask  a few questions.

At your first session the Hypnotherapist should gather some information about you in order to assess the best way to treat your problem. 

If your problem is of a more complex nature,  many Hypnotherapists offer an introductory consultation during which you can both discuss the matter and decide if Hypnotherapy is suitable for you.

  

Practicing Hypnotherapists should be properly trained and qualified by a professional Hypnotherapy association or Hypnotherapy training school.

 

All professional Hypnotherapy associations should have an ethical code of conduct, and keep lists of their qualified members.   If you wish to check out the credentials of a particular Hypnotherapist you should contact the Hypnotherapy Organisation he or she belongs to.

 

Practicing Hypnotherapists should carry Professional Indemnity Insurance.
