Q: What is Hypnosis Like and How does it Work?
A: You are already familiar with hypnosis, although you may not have realized it. People go through various states of consciousness, or brain wave levels, a minimum of 2 – 5 times a day; when you are crossing over into sleep and when you are awakening. Hypnosis is in-between being awake and asleep. If you fall asleep, you are going out of hypnosis into a delta level of sleep. So, it is perfectly safe, and you will always awaken.
Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation, heightened focus and hyper suggestibility. Through hypnosis we bypass the critical faculty of the mind to establish selective thinking within the subconscious mind. Because of the heightened suggestibility levels in the alpha and theta levels, positive programming is extremely effective in helping to create the changes you desire.
For most people, hypnosis is a mid-alpha range activity and although you are in hypnosis, you are deeply relaxed, yet fully conscious of everything going on around you. Don’t expect to be put out or oblivious to what’s going on. Don’t expect to have a clear slate. You will be aware of being in the room and relaxing in the chair. You will also be aware of your hypnotherapist speaking to you. You may also have your own thoughts come and go and even think of what you are going to do later in the day. Hypnosis is a way of accessing the sub-conscious mind, even though the conscious mind may also be listening. Even if you were to fall asleep, your sub-conscious mind can take in the positive suggestions given. Hypnosis Recordings are highly effective in reinforcing the work done during your private session in the office. Hypnotherapists who are certified through the Clinical Hypnosis Professional Group formulate words and sentence structures that are created through the use of Neuro Linguistic Programming, (NLP) and Specialized Learning Process to maximize the suggestion given.
