What is Hypnosis
   

Hypnotherapy is a very natural and perfectly safe therapy for relaxing and healing that can benefit anyone. It is the ultimate means of heightening awareness to motivate the subconscious  mind to work in cooperation with your conscious desires. Hypnotherapy is a partnership and everything that happens is as a result of co-operation and consultation.   It is surprisingly gentle but effective and unlike many conventional treatments, progress is usually rapid. You might be interested to learn that you already possess the ability to pass into trance and indeed, do so many times a day. Generally hypnosis is misunderstood and thought of as entertainment, magic or some mystical form of control.  In reality, meditation results are simular in the same altered states, but it does not conjure up the same negative images. My skill allows this heightened state to be achievable on demand and many therapeutic changes can be made in the subconscious mind so that you can realize your particular goals and dreams When we seek to work directly with the subconscious mind we are accessing the control centre, the roots of our current feelings, behaviors and beliefs.

Let me explain it this way. Medical practitioners and those whom do brain research have divided the brain into four levels of cycles per second activity.



 

 



 

 

 

Beta Full consciousness

Alpha Crossing over into sleep at night. Beginning to awaken in the morning.
Hypnosis
Meditation

Theta Early stages of sleep.
Deep meditation
Deep hypnosis

Delta Full sleep to deepest sleep
   
 
That’s it. There is no place else to go. Hypnosis can’t put you into any place other than these areas of cycles per second brain activity. For most people hypnosis is a mid-alpha range activity and although you are definitely in hypnosis, you remain fully conscious of everything that is going on around you.

If someone walks into the room while you are experiencing hypnosis, you will hear them and sense their presence. Hypnosis is a matter of setting aside the conscious mind and narrowing the attention span down to one thing, just as you do when you are beginning to go to sleep at night. It is an altered state of consciousness and state of hypersuggestibility. Because of this suggestibility in the alpha and theta levels, positive programming is extremely effective in helping to creative positive change.

Hypnosis is a perfectly safe technique that anyone who can concentrate for a few moments can learn.

The most frequent questions answered by
Dr.Allen S. Chips DCH

and president of National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists

A state of relaxation and/or a level of concentration that the average individual reaches daily. Self-Hypnosis is accomplished most often when one is “absorbed” in a TV program, experiencing repetition (highway driving), or daydreaming. “Hypnotherapy” is a form of guided relaxation using concentration where the ideas expressed (suggestions) by the therapist are generally experienced more clearly, which in turn creates a new awareness. Depending on one’s motivation, there may be a shift in attitude about specific subject matters (habits and stresses). The only requirement for getting therapeutic results is that the person has a conscious desire to change, or in other words, is in agreement with the suggestions.

Do people do things under hypnosis that are against their morals or values?

NO... Hypnosis cannot detach the ego. As a general rule, if a client were given a suggestion he or she did not agree with, he or she would simply refuse, laugh at it, or awaken (regain normal awareness). In stage hypnosis, the volunteers are usually under the influence of alcohol and have come to the show for the purpose of relaxing, acting silly and having a good time, therefore, they are easily encouraged to do so. Because inhibitions are often reduced under hypnosis, the subject is more likely to experience their inner character traits and motivations.

Can a person’s memory be erased?

NO... If one undergoing hypnosis wants to remember, he or she will. In some cases, if the client wants to forget something, amnesia can be produced with a post-hypnotic suggestion, but it wears off as quickly as the subject wishes. Although, a certified hypnotherapist can help a person transform a memory which may be causing problems. The mind contains unconscious memories which generally are responsible for our decisions, attitudes, feelings, and behaviors.

Can everyone be hypnotized?

YES... provided one has normal physiological and psychological functioning and therefore the ability to concentrate and/or relax. As long as a normal human being is willing, he or she may undergo hypnosis. Insusceptible people are simply not willing. There is a positive correlation between one’s willingness to relax and concentrate and the ability to undergo hypnosis.

Do people under hypnosis go to sleep or become unconscious?

NO... One should not expect to go to sleep! Hypnosis is a hyper-state of awareness that feels very relaxing. One is completely aware of everything that is occurring in the surrounding environment as well as that which is happening in the inner mind. Hypnosis is a state of consciousness located somewhere between awake and asleep. Some fatigued people may go out of hypnosis by falling into natural sleep, simply because they were tired, but then they may need to be awakened; if a person is trying to recall a memory under hypnosis, he or she can’t do so while sleeping. On the other hand, if a person is listening to a self-hypnosis tape and he or she falls out of hypnosis into sleep, the suggestions will likely still be effective.

What can be treated with hypnotherapy?

A qualified clinical hypnotherapist has the capabilities to help alleviate or transform a multitude of symptoms and problems. Many hypnotherapists carry credentials in other professional fields and therefore utilize hypnosis within the context of their specialty areas. The more qualifying information one requests (such as educational background, specialization. and the content of the treatment program) the better possibility that one seeking the benefits of hypnotherapy will match his or her needs appropriately.
