What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis works by suggestions to the person whilst they are completely relaxed in a safe comfortable environment.

Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. The conscious control of the mind is inhibited, and the subconscious mind awoken. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more instinctive force than the conscious mind, this is the part which has to change for the patient’s behaviour and physical state to alter.

For example, a patient who consciously wants to overcome their fear of spiders may try everything they consciously can to do it, but will still fail as long as their subconscious mind retains this terror and prevents the patient from succeeding. Progress can only be made by reprogramming the subconscious so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are abolished or altered.

What conditions can it treat?

Hypnotherapy is used to treat a wide variety of medical and psychological disorders, for example:

  • phobias
  • breaking habits such as nail biting, smoking, etc.
  • treat addictions such as alcoholism
  • increase confidence
  • low self esteem
  • anxiety / panic attacks / ocd
  • relieve pain /lower pain in childbirth
  • child bedwetting
  • stammering
  • blushing
  • insomnia
  • stress / tension
  • irritable bowel syndrome, psoriasis and eczema

Treatment

Firstly, any misconceptions a potential patient may have about hypnosis should be dispelled. The technique does not involve the patient being put into a deep sleep, and the patient cannot be made to do anything they would not ordinarily do. They remain fully aware of their surroundings and situation, and are not vulnerable to every given command of the therapist.

The important thing is that the patient wants to change some behavioural habit or addiction and is highly motivated to do so. They have to want the treatment to work and must establish a good clinical rapport with the therapist in order for it to do so.

The readiness and ability of patients to be hypnotised varies considerably and hypnotherapy generally requires several sessions in order to achieve meaningful results. However the patient can learn the technique of self-hypnosis which can be practised at home, to reinforce the usefulness of formal sessions with the therapist.
