Your habits and emotions are stored at a subconscious level. Hypnotists help you make changes to habits and let go of emotional baggage by communicating with the subconscious mind.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. You are the one who does it. Your hypnotist’s role is to guide you through the experience effectively.
For example, if you are snacking at night, hypnosis can help you change this habit. Willpower doesn’t help because the more you try to not have ice cream, the more you want ice cream. This is called a double bind, which is a hypnotic trap. Hypnosis can help free you from this debate and develop new habits that fit with your goals.
Hypnosis is a way to communicate with the subconscious mind and make changes at the subconscious level. With hypnosis, change happens in the gaps between your thoughts. It is the art of subconscious communication, and can be used to achieve specific life goals, such as losing weight and stopping smoking.
Psychology seeks to study and understand the human mind. Hypnosis has been observed by psychologists as a natural human phenomena.
It can improve the success of other treatments for several conditions such as: Phobias, fears, and anxiety. Sleep disorders. Depression.
Hypnosis itself is a completely natural ability we possess as humans. When you see a hypnotist, you are learning self-hypnosis for self help. In other words, you are learning to use your natural ability to reach your goals. As long as your goals are healthy and safe for you, hypnosis can help you safely.
There are times when it is important to get a medical referral before seeking the help of a hypnotist. If you have a serious medical condition that is related to your goal, you will want to get a medical referral. For example, if you are looking for help with pain management, your medical doctor should fully investigate the situation. Once your doctor determines the cause of your pain, and addresses your pain from a medical perspective, your doctor can make a recommendation about learning hypnosis for pain management. If you are clinically obese, check with your doctor to investigate any medical reasons for your weight before seeking help with hypnosis.
