How does hypnosis work?
Despite how hypnosis has been portrayed in popular culture, it is an evidence-based therapeutic tool.
A hypnotic state is a naturally occurring state where the conscious, more logical part of your mind becomes relaxed and distracted. We all enter into a form of hypnotic trance on a daily basis, often when we are doing something that has become second nature to us like driving on a familiar route, brushing teeth or daydreaming. When we are in a hypnotic state, our unconscious mind becomes more open and receptive.
Hypnosis is a powerful way of altering sensation, perception and behaviour and is widely used by psychologists and hypnotherapists in their treatment methods. It has been an active area of investigation and research for over 100 years within distinguished university psychological and medical laboratories. In more recent times, it has found synergy with neuroplasticity – the ability of the brain to be rewired and form new pathways.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis; a hypnotherapist merely acts as a coach guiding you into a state of trance, where your mind and body relax. In a hypnotic state you hear everything and know where you are, so you're able to move and adjust at any time, and, if you need to, you can open your eyes.
The hypnotic state (aka trance) you enter doesn't achieve anything by itself. This is where hypnotherapy services differ from stage hypnosis. Hypnosis simply allows the therapy to take place, which can consist of crafted language forming hypnotic suggestions. The words chosen might include analogies, metaphors and guided imagery to shift your underlying mindset.
Hypnotherapists are trained in a learned skill, but we are not magicians – so if you are determined not to be hypnotised or don’t want to be, then we cannot override your free will. During a session, if you don’t like a suggestion you hear, you won’t take it on board. In short, hypnosis gives you more control over your subconscious mind and the hypnotherapist's role is to help you navigate it.
Myths about hypnosis you probably believe in
Hypnosis is a mind control
Before trying hypnotherapy for myself and later becoming a certified hypnotherapist in Sydney, I used to worry about this too. In reality, you cannot be made to do anything against your will. During hypnotherapy, you remain fully aware and in control of all your senses at all times.
Myth # 2:
Not everyone can be hypnotised
Yes, everyone can. In fact we all experience trance multiple times daily. It often comes down to your motivation, willingness and rapport with your hypnotherapist. While I can guide you into a hypnotic state, the power lies with you. Why not take 'Can I be hypnotised Quiz' to learn more?
Myth # 3
What if I get stuck in a trance
It is a common myth and is not true. If you saw a hypnotherapist previously in Sydney or other place, you know that no one ever gets “stuck” in hypnosis. Maximum that could possibly happen is that you drift into a natural sleep and wake up soon afterwards feeling refreshed.
Hypnosis and hypnotherapy: what is the difference?
Although hypnosis and hypnotherapy services are used interchangeably, the two terms are not the same. Hypnosis is a state of mind - a combination of deep relaxation and focused concentration, as described above. And clinical hypnotherapy is a therapy that combines hypnosis with psychological treatment. Hypnotherapy services are becoming more popular these days in sports and business communities. The reason for its success is that hypnotherapy directs your subconscious mind to work in cooperation with your conscious intentions.
Hypnotherapists use 4 different hypnotic states or levels of trance: light, medium, deep and waking.
Most people achieve light trance very easily.
At this level, your body is deeply relaxed, yet you are fully alert and more acutely aware of the sounds around you. As long as you are truly wanting to heal, your mind will be open to receiving hypnotic suggestions, and this will lead to change.
At this level, your body is even more relaxed. You are aware of external sounds but are becoming more focused on internal thoughts and feelings. This allows your imagination to take a part in the process. When you come out of a medium trance, you might not remember the session clearly or have a sense of how much time has passed.
This is also called the somnambulist level because it is like the trance experienced by a sleep walker. You can hear but you are so focused on your internal reality, that you don't respond to anything external. Only 1 in 10 of us naturally enters prolonged deep trance without guidance from a skilled practitioner.
It is possible to use hypnotic suggestion during communication in a waking state, and it can be very powerful. This is because the power of hypnosis isn't in trance - it's in bypassing the critical, thinking mind to reach the subconscious. A skilled practitioner can do this through language alone.
Is hypnotherapy really effective?
According to the American Psychological Association, hypnotherapy has a 93% success rate after only 6 sessions, while cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychotherapy require well over 20 sessions to reach 70%.
Clinical hypnosis is a gentle and effective approach to get you the results that you want. The reason for its success is that hypnotherapy directs your subconscious mind to work in cooperation with your conscious focus and efforts.
Hypnosis helps you to tap into your subconscious, heal the root cause of your symptoms, and etch real changes deep in your mind, giving you the freedom to move towards your goal.
Together we can gently reframe negative thoughts, change unhelpful behaviour patterns, gain clarity and create the mindset that empowers you on your journey to happiness.
