Deriving from the Ancient Greek word "hypnos", meaning sleep, the process of Hypnosis leads you to a place of calm and relaxation which creates an openness to suggestion, but you do not lose control. There is nothing to worry about!
Clients often worry that during hypnosis, they will be ‘giving away’ control to the hypnotherapist, however, nothing could be further from the truth. You remain in charge throughout. All hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis. Nobody could make you do something you wouldn’t ordinarily want to do.
Don’t expect to feel hypnotised! You will enter a light trance, rather like a daydream or the feeling we have when engrossed in a good film. This delightfully natural feeling of total relaxation can be used as a tonic or treat to allow yourself time away from your busy everyday life, giving yourself time for you mind and body to restore themselves.
The definition of Hypnosis is a "temporary condition of altered attention in the subject which may be induced by another person and in which a variety of phenomena may appear spontaneously or in response to verbal or other stimuli. These phenomena include alterations in consciousness and memory, increased susceptibility to suggestion, and the production in the subject of responses and ideas unfamiliar to him in his usual state of mind. Further, phenomena such as anaesthesia, paralysis and rigidity of muscles, and vasomotor changes can be produced and removed in the hypnotic state."
(British Medical Association 1955)
Alternatively, hypnosis can be used therapeutically to open the door to focusing on what you want and giving the positive expectation of reaching your goals.
At Mind Evolution Company we work closely with clients to design bespoke hypnotic inductions, rather than providing a one-size-fits-all approach. This involves talking to clients about specific goals and success criteria, as well as their general interests and aims, so that we can provide more effective results.
Moreover, our pre-session consultation ensures that all clients are comfortable with the process, excited about the benefits and convinced they will achieve results.
