Hypnosis - who is in control?

Posted by Kathy Newton

Many people worry that going into a trance state means that they lose control to the therapist, but this isn’t the case.

The client has to allow the trance state to happen in order for the therapist to help them make positive changes, and they are usually able to remember most of the therapy, accepting or rejecting any suggestions made to them.

Hypnosis is a natural state which we all experience on a daily basis, whether daydreaming, watching TV, driving along a familiar stretch of road or being absorbed in a project.  As you relax your brain waves slow down (similar to when you begin to fall asleep) so in the therapy room this relaxed state is recreated to enable positive change, learn new behaviours and eliminate negative thoughts or beliefs more easily.  

If you have never experienced hypnosis before in a therapy situation, your trance state is likely to be fairly light but you can still make changes. If you meditate, practise self hypnosis or have further sessions you may experience deeper states of trance and there are a small percentage of people who are Somnambulist which means they go deeply into trance remembering little or nothing from the session, although they are still able to accept suggestions and make changes.

Many hypnotherapists provide a recording for their clients which, when played on a regular basis reinforces all the positive benefits relating to the changes the client wants to make.
