What to prepare for a hypnotherapy session
You don’t have to prepare anything special before your hypnotherapy session. However, it is a good idea to go for your session with a relaxed and open mind. Be sure to have ample rest the night before so that you are well-rested and energised for your hypnotherapy session.
What can I expect during a hypnotherapy session
Before your hypnotherapy session, your therapist will explain what hypnotherapy is, how it works (process), discuss your treatment goals, and obtain your consent to be hypnotised. The therapist may help you visualise mental images of yourself accomplishing your treatment goals.
When the session is over, your therapist will help you end your state of relaxation. Contrary to how hypnosis is portrayed in movies or on shows, you still gain control over your behaviour while under hypnosis.
Does hypnotherapy work for everyone
Hypnotherapy does not work for everyone. In layman terms, not everyone can be hypnotised. Not everyone is receptive to the practice.
What can hypnotherapy help with
If you are having difficulty coping with stress and anxiety, you might want to consider hypnotherapy as it is an effective method for reducing such stress and anxiety. Besides reducing stress and anxiety, hypnotherapy can be used to overcome severe phobias, quit smoking, improve sleep, and other undesirable habits. Hypnotherapy can also assist in pain management and help resolve medical conditions like skin issues and digestive disorders.
Risks of hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy rarely caused any side effects or held any risks. Hypnotherapy can be a safe alternative therapy option when a trained and certified hypnotherapist conducts it. However, some people may experience side effects such as:
- situational anxiety
- create false memories
Can I learn hypnotherapy
The short answer is yes, you can. The average length of study is 40 to 100 hours for most approved hypnotherapy certification programmes and hypnotherapy training workshops. There are 20 hours of supervised individual training and 2 to 5 years of practical experience using hypnotherapy as part of your practice.
Misconceptions about hypnotherapy
You lose control of your body when you are being hypnotised
Contrary to what is often portrayed with hypnosis you see on television, you remain aware of what you are doing and what you are asked to do. Under hypnosis, if you don’t want to do something being asked, you will not do it. Hence, you are in absolute control over your body during hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is equivalent to sleeping
False. While you are under hypnosis, there is an illusion that you are sound asleep. However, you are actually awake during hypnosis – you are simply in a deeply relaxed state. Your muscles will become limp in the open state, you may become drowsy, and your breathing rate will slow.
You cannot lie when you are hypnotised
When you are under hypnosis, you are more open during the session. However, you still have free will and moral judgement. Nobody can force you to say something that you don’t want to.
Hypnotherapy can help you find lost memories
Although there is a possibility to retrieve memories during hypnosis, you may be more likely to create false memories while in a trance-like state. Using hypnotherapy to recover lost or hidden memories is not commonly practised as hypnotherapists remain sceptical.
Factors to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist
Unlike choosing to engage other services, professional certifications are the most crucial factor when choosing a hypnotherapist. To ensure that you are hypnotised safely and professionally, your hypnotherapist needs to be someone who is professionally trained and certified.
If you have a budget in mind, choosing a hypnotherapist can be easier as you narrow down your options to those hypnotherapists within your budget. Be careful, though, as high-cost hypnotherapists might not necessarily mean they are of supreme quality.
Choosing a hypnotherapist who is more accessible to you in terms of location can save you time and transport costs in the long run. As most patients usually need several sessions of hypnotherapy, choosing a hypnotherapist near your home or workplace can bring you much convenience.
The experience of hypnotherapist matters. You are more likely to feel at ease knowing that your hypnotherapist has years of experience. The success rate of accomplishing your treatment goals is higher less than a hypnotherapist who has experience.
The environment where you will be undergoing hypnotherapy is crucial as well. A calm and quiet atmosphere can make you feel more safe and relaxed. When you are in a more relaxed state, you are more likely to have a good hypnotherapy session and be a step closer to accomplishing your treatment goals.
Reviewing hypnotherapist testimonials is essential as it gives your an overview of how your hypnotherapy session with that hypnotherapist would turn out. A hypnotherapist with positive reviews from past clients is more likely to attract new clients than someone who has average or poor reviews.
It is vital to find a hypnotherapist with whom you are comfortable sharing your thoughts. A hypnotherapist who you may find comfortable with may be someone who went through similar experiences as you did or someone open-minded to hearing your problems.
Hypnotherapy may not be suitable for everyone. When deciding which hypnotherapist to engage with, it is crucial to consider their professional certifications, professional experience, costs, testimonials, and location. However, the most critical factor is to find a hypnotherapist that you feel most comfortable with so that you would be able to achieve your treatment goals faster.
