Does Hypnosis Really Work?
Does hypnosis actually work?
That is the question that I get asked most often when people find out I am a professional hypnotherapist. And the short answer is, of course, yes it does. And you don’t have to believe in it for it to work for you.
It’s not a belief system, it’s a tried and tested fact. It’s been used for hundreds if not thousands of years. What most people don’t understand is that hypnosis is completely natural. We all do hypnosis every day, in our own way.
Have you ever zoned out while looking out of a window? Not heard, or remember seeing anything, for a few minutes?
Or have you lost the last few miles when you are driving? Both of these are examples of naturally occurring hypnosis. In fact, you go through hypnosis every time you go to sleep, and again when you wake up.
Now, schooled hypnotists like myself can help you go to that trance-like state, in the comfort and safety of my consulting rooms. So why does hypnosis help in solving the problems and the issues that people have in their lives everyday?
Well, think about this.
Most of the issues that bedevil us happen even though we don’t want them to. For example, if you’re stressed or have anxiety, you know you don’t want to feel that way, but you seem to have no control over how it happens and when it happens, despite telling yourself, “I should stay calm.” And it’s the same for bad habits like smoking, or excessive drinking or eating.
You know you really don’t want to, but something compels you to do it. Well, that something is your subconscious mind. An it’s in your subconscious mind that all the unwanted issues reside.
It’s a bit like having a bug in your computer, but it can’t be sorted out by using Facebook. Your subconscious mind is that part of you that controls all of your unconscious actions and reactions, as well as beating your heart and making you breathe.
It also contains all your memories and the information you’ve learned over time. You know, the stuff you don’t known you know, until you need it.
The reason hypnosis helps is that when you’re in that zone of trance, your conscious mind is quiet, and your unconscious mind is more open to receive suggestions that are in line with what you desire or you’re motivated to do.
Now we all know that we want to change these unwanted responses and habits, but a part of us believes it’s not possible. And that’s because we’ve tried in the past and we’ve failed. But we’ve tried using our conscious minds and that’s about as easy as digging a hole with a pair of chopsticks.
When we have your conscious mind out of the way, the path to change is open. For example, almost all smokers know they should quit and why they should quit. But a part of them likes smoking and is doing it for a reason.
So there’s a conflict between the two. Hypnosis helps resolve that conflict in the direction that the client wants to go, which is to quit.
Other things that people ask me about commonly are:
- Is it dangerous?
- Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
- Can you control my mind?
- Can you get my secrets like my bank codes?
Well, the answer to these is pretty simple. The answer is no. Your unconscious mind also has a protective part of you that stays there all the time and instinctively knows what is right, and what is wrong, and will reject suggestions that are not in line with your best interests.
There are no bad side effects from being hypnotized.
To the contrary, in fact. Ask anyone who’s ever been there and they will confirm hypnosis is a deeply relaxing and therapeutic state to be in.
In fact, I’ve had clients who come back week after week after week because they say it’s the only time they can really relax and rejuvenate themselves. They say they never rest as well at night, as the hour they spend on my couch, and that’s a fact.
The last question I’m often asked is, can anyone be hypnotized? And the answer, in my experience, is if you have a working brain and you can follow simple instructions, then yes, you can be hypnotized if you want to.
