Five Facts About Clinical Hypnotherapy You Might Not Be Aware Of

We are all familiar with movie hypnotists swinging their pocket watches and chanting about how you are getting very, very sleepy.

In reality, however, hypnotherapy is used as a therapy to help people (not to control or manipulate them).

When used by a trained hypnotherapist, hypnotherapy can be used to help people recover from trauma, overcome their bad habits, move beyond their addictions, or simply improve their lives in general.

It all might sound a bit spooky, like something magical or mystical, but this is not at all the case, and there is plenty of scientific research to back up the results of hypnotherapy.

Here are some facts about hypnotherapy which many people are not aware of:

1 You actually hypnotise yourself

“All hypnotherapy is self hypnotherapy”, according to Milton Erickson (sometimes referred to as the “grandfather” of hypnotherapy). The therapist is not the one putting you into a hypnotic state, but only helping you to put yourself there.

2 Everyone feels differently during hypnotherapy

You might feel extremely heavy, you might feel extremely light, or you might feel nothing at all. There is no right or wrong way to experience hypnotherapy, and everyone has a different relationship with it, which is completely normal and fine.

3 You remain in control the entire time

It is not at all like in movies where the hypnotist lulls you into a hypnotic state against your will and then forces you to do their bidding.

You remain in complete control the entire time, and you cannot be made to do anything that you don’t want to do. If you don’t want to quack like a duck, then you won’t quack like a duck!

4 Most of the time people remember everything that happened

The hypnotic trance state is not the same as sleeping, and in most cases patients remain fully aware and are able to remember everything that happened afterwards.

A small percentage of patients, however, do at times enter a deep trance state after which they may have trouble remembering everything that the hypnotherapist said.

5 You have to be on board with it

If a person really doesn’t want to be hypnotised, then it just isn’t going to happen. If for whatever reason the patient is not feeling up for the hypnotherapy session – either because they don’t trust the therapist, don’t believe it will work, or don’t feel like they are in a safe environment – then it simply isn’t going to work.

As said above, the hypnotherapist’s role is more of a helper or guide, and you can’t be forced into like in the movies.

Also keep in mind that real hypnotherapy is not like in the movies, and will not immediately cure you like magic in just one session.

However over time, no matter how serious your issue is, hypnotherapy can provide very real benefits for a wide variety of physical or emotional problems.
