Hypnosis for Therapy/ Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis for therapy has been around for centuries. Hypnosis for therapy (Hypnotherapy) uses the state of hypnosis to reprogram the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapists are trained to guide a client safely into the state of hypnosis. Everyone can go into the state of hypnosis. It is a natural state. Every time you watch television or a movie on a screen, you go into the Alpha brain wave state. This is the state of hypnosis.
People also drive in the state of hypnosis frequently. Im sure you have had the experience of arriving at your destination not remembering the drive. This is because your sub conscious mind has driven the car.
A person enters a hypnotic state when their brain wave moves from Beta (waking state) to Alpha or Theta (the state in between being awake and being asleep). When we are in the state of hypnosis we are highly suggestible, i.e. the subconscious mind picks up new suggestions easily.
This is where using hypnosis for therapy is very powerful. The Hypnotherapist finds the subconscious programming (core beliefs) that are keeping a client stuck. Core beliefs are often picked up in childhood. In the first 7 years of a child’s life, the brain is highly suggestible. If they experience thoughts and strong painful emotions over and over, these form core beliefs.
The brain is always moving us away from pain towards pleasure. As an adult you may not need the brain to protect you anymore however due to the Reticulating Activating System (the brains risk management system) it still acts as if you are a child.
This is whether using hypnosis for therapy (Hypnotherapy) is so powerful. The Hypnotherapist finds the subconscious programming that is not serving the client anymore and replaces it with positive suggestions.
