Hypnosis - Myths and Misconceptions

Sheffield Hypnotherapy

There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding hypnosis, many of these are formed from observing stage hypnotists and from media articles.

It is important to note the difference between an hypnotist and a hypnotherapist, an hypnotherapist consults with a client and then hypnotises the client and applies the appropriate therapy while the client is hypnotised, an hypnotist hypnotises a person  but does not then administer any therapy.

 

The truths about hypnosis:

  1. You are always conscious when under hypnosis
  2. You may experience some amnesia when you come out of hypnosis but you are fully aware of what is happening at the time of hypnosis
  3. Hypnosis is a natural state and everyone goes into hypnosis several times each day:
    1. Just before sleep and just after waking
    2. That missing piece of a car journey
    3. That film that caused to shed a tear or laugh
  4. You are always in control, in fact by allowing yourself to go into hypnosis you gain more control of your subconscious mind
  5. You can bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time
  6. You cannot get stuck in the hypnotic state
  7. You will not do anything that you do not wish to do when under hypnosis

Why do people do silly things when  under the influence of a stage hypnotist? These people are hand picked by the hypnotist, they are very suggestible, they offer to take part, they do the silly things because they want to, they want to perform and have offered to do so.

Don't be put off by the common myths and misconceptions, hypnotherapy can safely affect your behaviours and habits for the better, improving your quality of life.
