ON THE QUESTION OF HYPNOSIS
Being that hypnotherapy is one of my primary methods of practice you can expect this to be used at various times. However, you can expect most sessions to be conversational (talk therapy) and Narrative (working with your own particular story). There will be times when I will show you how to do certain exercise for such things as relaxation and focusing along with other self- help techniques. Hypnosis is used when we have identified a point where accessing your inner resources would be most helpful, or at times when you are in a position where you are stuck and need harness the power of combining conscious and subconscious thinking. Outside of this hypnosis can also be used to help you envision future possibilities and strengths.
Hypnosis is an inward focused state of relaxation and imaging that allows both your conscious and subconscious minds to co-ordinate and focus together. This joining of the conscious and subconscious gives you unlimited ways to address your issues in multiple ways. Because it draws from both your critical analytical mind and your intuitive creative mind it leverages and doubles the tools you have.
What makes hypnosis and hypnotherapy so vital is the fact it can be used on its own or integrated with other therapies. It's primary benefit is how it gives you a way to identify and move past subconscious barriers and achieve the lasting and effective change.
Dos hypnosis work for everyone? Many reports say it has an eighty-five to ninety percent success rate and the key to making it work is through your unconditional acceptance of using it as a viable way of working. The best predictors of success is your willingness to become absorbed in fantasy or imagery and focus to block out the surrounding world.
There are no dangers to the use of hypnosis, nobody ever gets stuck in a trance, or can be forced to do something against their will. it relies on direct and indirect communication, which includes metaphors, emotional tone, imagery and so forth.
