Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are not the same. They are natural, perfectly safe and side-effect free, but only when you are treated by a professional and reputable hypnotherapist with accredited qualifications.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and absolutely no one can be hypnotised against their will. Hypnosis, or the trance state, often occurs naturally when we are calm and relaxed and our attention is focused on something like reading a book. Adults spontaneously drift into hypnosis approximately 600 times per day, and children, 800. If you have ever had a daydream, lost track of time when you have been enjoying yourself or cannot remember certain parts of your journey when you have been driving, you have been hypnotised. We call this awakened hypnosis.
We can also consciously take ourselves into hypnosis (self-hypnosis), or be guided into it by a hypnotherapist or stage hypnotist. This is sleep-type hypnosis. However, you are not asleep, just relaxed with an altered state of awareness. Because you have awareness, you always have control and only the things that you want to happen can happen. After being hypnotised, you remember what you need to remember and forget what you need to forget.
Hypnotherapy or; clinical hypnosis is the therapeutic use of hypnosis. Unlike all other talking therapies, it uses hypnosis to access the subconscious where most problems have their roots and then uses the much more powerful unconscious to make long-term positive changes happen.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful mind-body therapy which uses the power of the mind to make real changes in the body. It changes thoughts feelings and behaviours fast. Countless stress related and other mental and emotional conditions can be swiftly relieved along with many physical and biological illnesses. Goals, dreams and ambitions, become much more achievable by breaking free from the past.
MRI brain scans prove that during hypnotherapy, different areas of the brain and much more of it, are active than at any other time. Neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to mould and remodel itself by creating new neural pathways which make mind-body changes much more possible, significantly increases in hypnotherapy.
