Hypnosis

Hypnosis refers to a state or condition in which a person becomes highly responsive. This is the same state that one would experience just before sleep.

Hypnosis treatments:

The list of reasons a person seeks out Hypnosis Treatment is very broad. On your first visit, it is called the original consultation. It lasts aprox. 1.5 – 2 hrs. The purpose of the first visit is to determine if you are hypnotizable through several suggestibility tests, what you want the hypnosis for, and other pertinent information surrounding the problem and its cause. No hypnosis is involved during this point. During this time, we will discuss the approximate length of time or how many sessions will be needed. Each case is different.

During the actual hypnosis sessions trance will be induced. During this condition a patient is relaxed and focuses on deep breathing. Then the trance will be deepened by natural suggestions by the hypnotist. Once the patient is in the hypnotic state direct suggestions will be given, such as changing one's behavior regarding the subject. You will be given feel-good suggestions, emerge from hypnosis and given instruction on how to induce self hypnosis to help reinforce the therapy in between sessions.

Common misconceptions about hypnosis:

Hypnosis in the entertainment industries performed by stage hypnotists have contributed to misunderstanding of the true nature of hypnosis. The following section will address some of the more widely held misconceptions about hypnosis:

A person under hypnosis is asleep or unconscious
This is probably the most common misconception about hypnosis. You never lose your full sense of awareness or fall asleep in hypnosis. On the contrary, you are actually more fully awake. All levels of hypnosis are characterized by increased attention, and it is heightened concentration that increases your receptivity to suggestion.

A person won't remember anything that happens while under hypnosis
You'll be aware of everything while hypnotized and afterward, unless specific amnesia is suggested for a therapeutic purpose. It is normal for your mind to wander at times. After hypnosis it's likely that you'll probably have a fading memory of the session, similar to emerging from a deep daydream or a nap.

A person can be hypnotized against their will
There is, in fact, no such "power." Hypnosis is a state of consent and cooperation. The only control the hypnotist has over you is the control you allow him or her to have.

A person surrenders their will once they go under hypnosis, and can be made to do things he or she does not want to do
You are capable of making normal decisions at all times under hypnosis. You can't be made to do anything under hypnosis that you would find objectionable under normal circumstances.

Not everyone can be hypnotized
It's not a matter whether you can be hypnotized or not, but whether you'll allow yourself to be helped to enter hypnosis. Most people go into hypnosis easily once they understand that you remain conscious and do not surrender your will. Everyone has the ability to be hypnotized, because it's a natural, normal state that each of us enters when we fall asleep and when we wake, when daydreaming, or meditating.

A person under hypnosis might reveal his or her deepest secrets
You don't lose control or reveal personal secrets under hypnosis unless you wish to do so.

A person can get stuck in a trance forever
This is impossible. No one has ever been stuck in a hypnotic trance. Just like no one has ever been stuck in meditation.
