“What if you could regain control in only 5 weeks?”

What is clinical hypnosis and how it can help you

The human brain is a powerful asset that drives our body, as well as our consciousness. We perform normal bodily functions like blinking our eyes, seemingly without even thinking about them. Such functions are a result of our brain sending out messages to the rest of the body and instructing it to act.

In addition to such mundane tasks, our brain is also responsible for happiness, excitement, stress, phobias and anxiety. Many of us are afflicted with debilitating phobias, anxiety, pain and bad habits; this is where clinical hypnosis comes in. From the start, let us be clear that clinical hypnosis or hypnotherapy are not some kind of magic. Nor is it possible for the therapist or practitioner to completely take over the minds of people and control their actions. The person being hypnotised does not lose control over their behaviour while under hypnosis. In fact, they generally remain aware of and remember what happens during hypnosis.

Clinical Hypnosis - Phobia

Clinical hypnosis is practiced by certified healthcare professionals to bring about a trance-like state that helps you reach increased focus and concentration, so that you can gain control over undesired behaviours (such as smoking), get help with stress, anxiety or phobias and manage pain. There is nothing scary about this trance state. You can hear everything around you, are still in control of your actions and cannot be forced into doing something against your will.

Its main feature is to connect your conscious and sub-conscious minds. The experience is rather like daydreaming, accompanied by deep relaxation, helping you to enter a different state of consciousness. Such therapy results in instilling beneficial corrections to your sub-conscious mind to help you achieve your potential or health goals.

A certified practitioner of clinical hypnosis uses mental imagery and verbal repetition to instil a calm and relaxed feeling, which ultimately makes the person seeking treatment, more open to suggestion. When conducted by a trained practitioner, it is considered a safe and complimentary medical treatment with the objective of healing, stress relief or even self-discovery, by harnessing the power of suggestion.

There are many ways clinical hypnosis can be beneficial. Following are just a few examples:

  • Treating the root causes of various mental health issues such as phobias, anxiety, depression, insomnia and PTSD;
  • Helping with chronic and acute pain due to childbirth, cancer, burns, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches and others; and
  • Helping to quit bad habits such as smoking, overeating and alcoholism and instilling healthy behaviour

Your therapist will first understand your issues, discuss your goals, explain the hypnosis process and the length of treatment. There are many ways that clinical hypnosis can help you, beyond those mentioned in the above list. Contact us for more information or to book an appointment.
