Hypnotherapy works with an altered state of awareness brought about by a heightened focus while bypassing the limitations of the conscious mind.
These limitations are generally created through preconceived judgments and our information perception that has been highly influenced by society and the media. In hypnosis, we are dealing with the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy is a safe, practical, effective and efficient method of suggestive therapy while dealing with many different issues. There are several treatment methods utilizing Hypnosis: Clinical, Traditional, Ericksonian, Hypnotherapy, Stage Hypnosis, and combinations of more than one type. A Hypnotic state may be induced by yourself or others.
Hypnotherapy, however, is much more than just Hypnosis. While a Hypnotist may only provide suggestions/commands in order to assist you when you want to stop smoking, lose weight, increase self-esteem and so forth, a Hypnotherapist will lead you into a deeper understanding of your problem and resolution will become almost an immediate result of it.
This deeper understanding leads to the underlying cause of the problem, which will then be resolved in the best possible way, bringing long-lasting change. At Hypnotherapy and Meditation we are using Non-Directive Interactive Transpersonal Hypnosis which means that we believe you have all the answers, you just don’t know how to get them. Let us open that door for you and show you how powerful you are.
How does Hypnosis work?
We all walk in different hypnotic states all day long! We are constantly hypnotizing ourselves almost every moment of our lives – the self-talk you are having in your mind, for example criticizing yourself or complimenting for your achievements is self-hypnosis. We constantly program ourselves, giving suggestions, and what the mind expects to happen is often materialized. Here is how it happens:
Imagine these possibilities:
Let’s say you are going to close your eyes and imagine yourself standing on the very edge of a helicopter door, preparing to jump. Guess what will happen if you do that visualization in a vivid way, with all the effects of the sound, wind, adrenalin… feeling it yet? Your body suddenly becomes tense, your blood pressure will rise as your body prepares for an “impact”.
This will occur, even if you are safely sitting at home in a comfortable chair! Our emotions directly influence our so-called involuntary or instinctual physiological responses. This happens as our hypothalamus acts as a filter while creating hormones to initiate a fight or flight response.
With hypnosis, you are able to step outside yourself and observe what is going on inside you, almost as if you were looking at another person. Consider this. Do you remember a time when a good friend asked you for advice telling you their troubles and it was so obvious to you what the real problem was?
While in a hypnotic state, you are objectively observing your own thoughts and reactions. In doing so, you are coming to a very profound understanding of old programs running in your mind that are no longer serving you. Once you’ve arrived at the realization, you will never forget it. When the same situation will occur in the future, you will know better what needs to be done to deal with it.
All Hypnosis is Self-Hypnosis. When you are watching a movie, you become part of the experience, in your mind. It’s as if you are part of the movie that you’re watching. Even though, consciously, you know that it’s only actors and images on a screen being filmed by a camera, your emotions are fully engaged. You laugh, cry and feel everything that you ALLOW yourself to feel.
It’s the same while in a Hypnotic state. You are aware of everything around you and you have full control over your emotions. However, this time, YOU are the star of the movie and everything else is just background noise.
How do we work with Hypnosis?
We all have behaviors, thoughts, and visions of the world that are unique to us. Some of these have been programmed into us, since our childhood. Others have been programmed during the later years of our lives.
Our belief systems are also affected by the media and those around us, presenting as authority figures. Some of the “messages” they implant can be harmful or no longer effective and might cause us to act in unhealthy ways that are extremely detrimental.
Here is a video of Dr. Wayne Dyer & Dr. Bruce Lipton, about how your mind works:
In order to change any of these existing behaviors, patterns or thoughts, we first need to discover what they actually are and how were they learned. We then need to determine what purpose they serve in relation to our behavior, in other words, what is the intention behind it. At that point, we can discover the most effective ways of initiating the change.
Hypnotherapy will help clean the unwanted behaviors and beliefs and replace them with more desirable ones that are far more beneficial, in accordance with your desired outcome.
The number of sessions needed in each case is very individual. For some, it may take only one or two sessions to see how easy it is to replace unwanted impulses and involuntary programming, for others it is a long process.
This can pertain to Stress Management, low Self-Esteem, anxieties, fears, phobias, healing traumatic experiences and much more. We will help you get to the root of your problem and obtain your inner resources needed in a completely SAFE and SECURE manner. We will help you replace your old harmful patterns with beneficial ones that will lead to a new and wholesome you.
You will, of course, remember every moment of your session and remain in complete and total control of yourself and your surroundings. And once you arrive at your answers, you will always remember them, that’s just how we grow and develop. This will open the doors to your brighter future and you will be on your new path to true success.
