Why Use Hypnosis
“I have been in talk therapy for years and just wasn’t getting the results I was hoping for.”
While hypnotherapy certainly isn’t a conventional form of therapy, it is becoming increasingly popular as alternative healthcare and is coming to the forefront of the healthcare realm. Certainly hypnotherapy isn’t for everyone, but if it doesn’t work, then why have so many people begun to seek out hypnotherapy opposed to conventional psychotherapy?
In order to answer this question it’s important to understand the two different areas of the mind:
1) The conscious mind:
This portion accounts for approximately 10% and is where the logic, reason, willpower, and deductive reasoning are housed.
Or as I like to call it from time to time: The Excuse Maker
2) The subconscious mind
This portion of the mind accounts for the remaining nearly 90% and is where our primitive and innate abilities are housed, as well as, all stored associations which dictate our behaviors. This part of the mind is purely reactive and has no logic, reason, willpower, or deductive reasoning.
I call this part: The Irrational Behavior Dictator
Lets break apart the word Hypnotherapy. There are two key parts to the success of hypnotherapy, but a brief overview looks like this:
Hypnotherapy works directly to bring the conscious desires into the subconscious by creating new associations and motivations. Thereby, effecting changes in our behaviors and bringing inline what we want with how we can be.
Now, lets dissect hypnotherapy into the two key parts of a integrated session:
The therapy portion of the session helps to bring to light what the subconscious associations are in relation to a distinct behavior that is looking to be changed. While we may rationalize a behavior with our conscious mind, the subconscious isn’t always as forthcoming to give the answers. This is because your subconscious mind has no words or voice, its pure feelings, associations, memories, or visuals. To bring to light the subconscious motivations and reasons, it can sometimes take time to understand an emotion and to bring up the subconscious language of an emotion.
This process helps bring conscious and motivational words from the subconscious to the conscious mind in order to understand how a client feels:
1) Currently about a certain issue
2)}How they would like to feel about a certain issue
3) }How and when these changes occur and how will that impact their life
By having these answers you can then begin the hypnotic process of hypnotherapy.
SIDEBAR: conventional therapy does an excellent job at bringing to light all of the above mentioned. However, where it can fall short is then taking it back down into the subconscious mind to create the behavioral changes quickly and efficiently.
Once the language from the talk therapy portion of the session has been established and a goal set for the sessions, these conscious desires are then transferred down into the subconscious mind to create behavior changes. Through a series of relaxation techniques and tools, the mind is brought into the hypnotic sleep where the suggestions are presented to the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy works because you are working with the part that rules behavior. In addition, through the hypnotic state clients remove the logical part of the conscious mind that can make up an excuse for anything and begin to really see, feel, and sense things without the logic of the mind trying to rationalize it. This insight and heightened perspective helps the mind create a shift to gain a perspective other than the narrow view of how they have experienced the issue before. Thereby, accessing the ability to let go of emotions, feelings, behaviors that can be harbored.
Hypnotherapy becomes an integrated approach of utilizing conventional and nonconventional techniques that have been proven to show significant improvements in people’s lives quickly and efficiently. This well-rounded approach is custom tailored for each client in order to speak to the unique subconscious language of the individual. Just as we all have unique DNA, our subconscious minds speak a language unique to each of us.
The success of hypnotherapy is a team effort. When you come in for your session there are only three requirements on your end:
- The urge to make changes
- A willingness to participate
- An open mind to the process
When you can bring these three things to the table, the hypnotherapist’s commitment to you includes helping you:
Create - goals
Unlock - options that you may not have realized existed
Discover - what drives you
What it is that affecting you
Unblock any conscious and subconscious resistance to
