Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you're under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed.
In Hypnotherapy you and your therapist will be having an open-ended dialogue about any issues or concerns you are facing. During your initial session, your therapist will ask you about your concern/issue, goals, history surrounding the topic and general information about yourself. Your therapist will give you an overview of your therapy journey and share with you further about hypnotherapy.
During the subsequent sessions, you will be brought to a relaxed state of mind allowing your therapist to work directly with your unconscious mind. There is no limit on the number of therapy sessions you might attend to gain a deeper understanding of your condition, habits, or challenges. Your therapist will recommend regular sessions until you have came up with an action plan for treatment or until you have made lifestyle improvements.
Here at Healthy Mind Wellness Centre, our therapist's primary objective is to provide you a session without any judgement and biases in a safe and confidential manner.
Hypnosis is defined as a state of mind, while hypnotherapy is the name of the therapeutic modality in which hypnosis is used.
What we can help you with
An average person experiences hypnosis at least twice a day.
Believe it or not, you likely enter an hypnotic state at least twice a day. Common examples include arriving at your destination without memory of driving there, zoning out while reading the page of a book, or becoming so engrossed in the television show you’re binging that you barely realise half a day has passed.
Hypnosis can be used as an anaesthesia.
Various studies have found that hypnosis can be an effective tool for pain management. In fact, studies done using EEG have shown that hypnosis removes the emotional experience of pain, while still allowing one to experience the sensory sensation. The touch can be felt, but the actual feeling of pain isn’t recognized by the brain. More and more women are even going through prenatal hypnosis training as they prepare for natural childbirth.
There is no one "right" way to feel during hypnosis. Either "hypnosis doesn’t feel like anything, or you may feel really heavy, or you may feel really light," says Gitch. "It really doesn’t matter, because it is your experience and you will experience exactly what you need to experience."
A hypnotised person remains under complete control of their hypnotherapist.
Usually in television, hypnosis is dramatised to show someone losing all control and becoming a “puppet.” In reality, people in a relaxed state of hypnosis remain completely in control. They should be able to hear, comprehend, and later remember what the hypnotherapist suggests. There should be no concerns about being made to cluck like a chicken or sent on a murder spree while hypnotised.
A human stays completely awake during hypnosis.
Contrary to popular belief, hypnotism is a natural state of mind. It’s not a form of sleep. Scientists have proven over and over again that clients remain wide awake while under hypnosis, and even retain complete control of their actions.
