What is Hypnotherapy?


Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming

The techniques and principles of hypnosis have been used to benefit mankind for many years. When hypnosis is stripped of the misunderstandings and erroneous ideas which surround it, it can be seen for what it really is - a normal, natural healthy state of mind and one which virtually anyone can achieve with the correct guidance.

How can Hypnosis Help?
Hypnotherapy has been a great help in overcoming many problems including smoking, overeating, nail-biting, bedwetting, insomnia, phobias, tension headaches and migraines, self confidence, study and examination nerves, stress and tension as well as anxiety induced conditions.

There is no single form of treatment which can be used successfully in all conditions and hypnotherapy is no exception to the rule, but it can be applied with success to a wide variety of problems either as the primary therapy or as a valuable adjunct to a more appropriate form of treatment.

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation which is natural and safe. It is a state of mind between waking and sleeping where we are conscious, aware of physical sensations and surroundings yet much more receptive to therapeutic suggestions than we normally would be. It is a day-dream state in which we relax, drift away and make use of the resources of our unconscious minds. In a trance or dream-like state we can view our problems from a distance, remove tension and present optimistic alternatives to ourselves. By using this method it is possible to get off the merry-go-round which occurs when we try with our conscious mind to solve unconscious puzzles. Therapy success depends on the teamwork between the patient and the therapist.

What does it feel like?
Sensations of hypnosis vary from patient to patient. It is usual to experience mild drowsiness together with pleasant feelings of comfort and well being. They are in fact, totally relaxed.
People in hypnosis are conscious and able to hear the hypnotherapist's voice, remaining at all times in control of themselves. They will not do or say anything that they would not elect to do of their own choice.

How Safe is Hypnosis?
It is a natural and beneficial experience that is free from drugs. People can wake themselves up at any time they wish. The hypnotic state is maintained by mutual co-operation between the patient and the hypnotherapist.

Can Anyone be Hypnotised?
Virtually anyone can be hypnotized - some more easily than others. Improvement comes with practice and someone who starts slowly can often become a better subject than a fast starter. All that is needed is a desire to co-operate with the hypnotherapist; you cannot be hypnotized against your will.

Is a Doctor's Referral needed to see a Hypnotherapist?
A referral is usually not necessary. A medical check is advisable before therapy in any case where a problem may have a predominantly physical cause. Often your hypnotherapist will work with your Doctor because many problems can best be overcome by a joint effort.

Neuro Linguisting programming (NLP)
Began as a model of how we communicate to ourselves and others. It was originally developed by Richard Bandler, John Grinder and others. This model explains how we process the information that comes to us from the outside. The belief is that "The map is not the territory." And so the internal representations that we make about an outside event are not necessarily the event itself.

Typically what happens is that there is an external event and we run that event though our internal processing. We make an Internal Rrepresentation (I/R) of that event. That I/R of the event combines with a physiology and creates a state. "State" refers to the internal emotional state of the individual: A happy state, a sad state, a motivated state, and so on. Our I/R includes our internal pictures, sounds and dialogue, and our feelings (for example whether we feel motivated, challenged, pleased, excited, and so on). A given state is the result of the combination of an internal representation and a physiology.

So what happens is that an event comes in through our sensory input channels which are: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Olfactory, and Gustatory. Whent the external event comes through it is filtered and we process the event. As we process the event, we delete, distort, and generalise the information that comes in, according to any number of several elements that filter our perception. Very often, the interpretation of the event that we get after the deletion, distortion and generalisation is not the reality of the event.

Time Line Therapy™

Time Line Therapy
Is a useful tool that can be used to bring about positive changes in one's life. Time Line Therapy™ was conceived and developed by Dr Tad Iames, a Master Trainer of NLP, Hypnotherapy and Time line Therapy. By changing the historical perception of past events, blocks that prevent progress can be removed, goals can be set, and a new way of perceiving can occur.
