Therapy in Hypnotherapy
As hypnotherapists, we facilitate the process of guiding your conscious mind to a state of deep relaxation – in this relaxed state, your sub-conscious mind is able to visualise and create new behavioural patterns. It might come as a surprise to realise that you put the ‘therapy’ in hypnotherapy – and you do all this in a state of blissful relaxation!
During a hypnotherapy session, it is important to mention that you are fully aware of what is happening around you. A hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything that opposes your moral and ethical code. A hypnotherapist can also not force you to disclose your deepest secrets – the sub-conscious mind is at all times, even during the deepest state of hypnotic trance, able to refuse to answer a question it does not feel comfortable answering. In fact, it is quite common for a large portion of a hypnotherapy session to take place in silence, where the client’s sub-conscious mind does not feel the need to verbalise the wisdom and insights it wishes to communicate to the client, and simply chooses to let the client absorb the information in silence. Only after the client emerges from the hypnotic state is the experience then shared with the hypnotherapist, and only to the extent that the client chooses to share his or her experience.
