What can hypnosis do?
In Hypnotherapy the Clinical Hypnotherapist bypasses the critical factor of the mind to make suggestions into the subconscious. The Sub Conscious Mind stores our long-term memories. We record things literally and in a very childlike manner, without judgment. This part of our mind has the ability to multi-task, such as driving a car and talking at same time.
The Subconscious has been theorised to be the untapped part of the mind, as a result we have unlimited resources and potential. So why is this so?
Well, we have 4 different brain waves patterns that effect – how we learn, move, relax and heal/sleep, patterns are identified as:
- Beta – associated with normal waking exercises, at this level the mind focuses on the five physical senses.
- Alpha – relates to relaxation, visualisation and creativity.
- Theta – is when you meditate; use your intuition and memory.
- Delta is where detached awareness, healing and sleep occur.
Hypnosis can engage all 4 at different times in a session when required.
Lucky there’s an almond-shape set of neurons in our brain, that is located deep within the medial temporal lobe. It is known as the amygdala – the amygdala is influenced by our, fight, flight or freeze response.
So the major beneﬁt of hypnosis is: when you are in a relaxed state known as trance it helps the autonomic nervous system (amygdala) calm down and your immune system than has time to heal.
Please be aware – hypnosis isn’t a magic bullet, there’s no magic involved. Hypnosis when used in the right way (in a therapy setting), can achieve wonderful, long lasting, life changing outcomes for an individual.
