Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a deep relaxation state during which we are more open to suggestions by means of verbal repetition and mental images.
It is very useful when we are trying to get rid of undesired behaviors and/or to alleviate anxiety or pain.
What are some common misconceptions?
It’s important to know that although most people are more open to suggestion during a session, they don’t lose control over our behavior and they cannot be “brainwashed”. Unfortunately, the portrayal of hypnosis in shows or movies and by entertainers using stage hypnosis have given some people the wrong idea. During a hypnosis session, the person is often completely aware of what is going on and in some cases remembers what has been said.
What can hypnosis help us with?
Among other issues, it can help us and is used for:
- Behavior change.
- Weight loss.
- Stress management.
- Anger management.
- Pain control.
- Stage fright
Is hypnosis a safe technique for everyone?
Hypnosis is a safe, complementary, alternative treatment, provided that it is conducted by a trained professional, but, in many cases, it is by no means a treatment on its own. It complements western medicine.
Nevertheless, it may not be appropriate for people with severe mental illness.
What happens during a hypnosis session?
Before the first session, I always conduct a long interview with the person during which we determine their short- and long-term goals and I explain the process. We then proceed with the induction (the creation of relaxation) which can take many forms: from talking to the person in a soft and soothing tone of voice, to using sounds or images that promote a feeling of tranquility, security and well-being. When we have achieved that, I go on to use post-hypnotic suggestions which can take the form of verbal instructions, visualizations, parables or other mental images that will reinforce your decision and will to change whatever it is that you need to change. The last part of the session is when I gently bring you back to your normal state of being.
What should you expect after the session?
It is noteworthy that people manage to retain the relaxation and well-being even after the session.
