Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind that enables the client to block out external stimulus and enter into a trancelike state. Counseling Hypnotism uses this trancelike state to enable the client to achieve a heightened awareness of themselves, to elicit change in their lives.
When the client is in hypnosis, he will be in a state of relaxation that you experience when you are lying in bed, right before you fall asleep. The client is awake, but focused on the internal thoughts and memories that the Counseling Hypnotist guides him through.
Hypnotism is a two way process between the Counseling Hypnotist and the client. A person must consent to being hypnotized and cooperate throughout the process. Unlike a stage act, where people act like chickens when a bell is rung, the Counseling Hypnotist cannot make you do anything that you do not consent to do. What Counseling Hypnotists do is help you resolve inner conflicts as opposed to stage hypnosis that is done for entertainment. Most of the population has experienced being in a hypnotic state at some time in their lives. For example, if you have been driving and suddenly realize that you were thinking about a something and cannot remember driving the last 50 miles.
There are two applications to Counseling Hypnotism. Hypnotism utilizes the power of suggestion in a hypnotic state to change behaviors. It helps people to stop smoking and eating fattening foods. Hypnotiic Suggestion is instrumental in helping chronic pain clients change their perceptions on the pain itself. Counseling Hypnotism also uses analysis in a hypnotic state to uncover the root cause of issues that a person is experiencing. The relaxed state enables the client to recall events from their unconscious memory, which may not be evident while in a non-hypnotic state. Using these two applications, the Counseling Hypnotist is able to help the client resolve issues and overcome obstacles that they have been living with. Counseling Hypnotism is completely safe and very effective.
