Common Myths About Hypnosis

Common Myths About Hypnosis

Four of the most common myths about Hypnosis:

People seem to think ones goes under hypnosis, like and anaesthetic or going under water like scuba diving, this is what people expect but will not experience, because hypnosis is a gradual cycling down of the brain  one feels no such effect.

You go into hypnosis not under, rather like day dreaming

Secondly people perceive themselves to be too much of a control fanatic or to strong, to experience hypnosis, the truth is that the more you are ,the easier you will go in ,we find working with people who focus such as sports people ,musicians, painters or anyone who can concentrate on a task  much easier to work with than others

Thirdly people perceive Hypnosis as an in-depth investigation into the hidden private areas of the subconscious, hypnosis practitioners do not go back to treat nor investigate your private thoughts ,the psychologists will do the root cause process, hypnosis practitioners attempt to assist the client to change an existing negative behaviour into a positive, hypnosis is just a tool that is used to bring about positive change ,sometimes working in conjunction with other therapists such as psychologists

Fourthly, the only people who cannot make use of Hypnosis are deaf people and those that have any form of brain retardation.

What Is Conversational Hypnosis

What is Eriksonian Hypnosis

What Is NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)

Defined as seeking to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change patterns of mental and emotional behaviours.

What is SAMHA Hypnosis  (Dutton)

Could be defined as a combination of similar techniques to Conversational/Eriksionian and Neureolingustic programming with the emphasis on effective skills to communication with the subconscious mind creating behavioural change.
