Hypnotherapy - What to expect
Hypnotherapy can be used as a supplement to coaching methods as hypnotherapy is efficient in surpassing any conscious and/or subconscious mental beliefs that no longer are beneficial to you and to replace these beliefs with more constructive and powerful beliefs which support you in reaching your inspired goals and taking action towards realising these.
Situations where hypnotherapy is beneficial
Your conscious mind is quieted, allowing your subconscious mind to deeply focus on your issue. You are also calmer, and therefore more receptive to facing your problems or fears. You will be guided to visualize yourself in a state of peacefulness and relaxation, even when confronting a problematic behavior or the object of your fears. The hypnotherapist will make gentle suggestions for behavior changes which can help you conquer your issue and help you to trust yourself and your ability to get through the situation.
Hypnotherapy is used to treat a wide range of conditions, issues, and unwanted/unhealthy behaviors, such as:
- Work conflicts, anxiety, going through changes at work, changes in your career.
- Dissolving bad habits/ learning disorders.
- Development and improvement of leadership skills.
A hypnotherapy session entails:
- A thorough discription of the client’s background and the issue(s) the client wants resolved
- An introduction to hypnotherapy
- Coaching will be used before the hypnotherapy to clarify the actual problem and to write the manuscript used with the hypnotherapy technique(s)
- Personal action plan
- Time duration: 1-2 hours
The hypnotherapy process
Hypnotherapy, also referred to as guided hypnosis. The aim of hypnotherapy is to create a positive change in an individual, while the person is in a trance state.
This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one’s own thoughts or meditations.
In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.
The client can hear what the hypnotherapist is saying during the session. The hypnotherapy is performed in a calm environment. Unlike some dramatic portrayals of hypnosis in movies, books, or on stage, you will not be unconscious or in any way out of control of yourself.
You will hear the therapist’s suggestions, but it is up to you to decide whether or not to act on them. The length of hypnosis treatment varies, depending on the complexity of the problem.
Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy used to reprogram the subconscious mind. When under hypnosis, you put your mind and body into a heightened state of learning, making you more susceptible to suggestions for self-improvement or behaviour modification.
In a hypnotherapy session, you are in control at all times. You will hear the suggestions made to you, and you will be able to remember them after the session.
During your first session, you will begin by telling the coach/hypnotherapist about your goals and issues. You will then work together to come up with a plan to achieve these goals.
Once you enter a state of hypnosis, your body will feel calm and relaxed, even as you enter a state of increased awareness, and during the session the hypnotherapist will insert suggestions, agreed to in your plan.
