Breaking the Misconceptions about Hypnotherapy

Have you ever considered hypnotherapy as a way to alleviate whatever emotional burdens or physical ailments are interfering with your quality of life, but perhaps you are hesitant to participate in this break from alternative medicine? When you mention the possibility of hypnosis to friends or family, do you receive some raised eyebrows or outright criticism concerning your interest in moving beyond traditionally accepted solutions?

There are so many misconceptions about what exactly happens when you enter the office of a clinical hypnotherapist. I believe that some concrete information about the true practice of hypnotherapy would change the minds of many skeptics. And, with a new attitude towards the practice, people will finally have the opportunity to experience a more enjoyable, confident life free from the internal struggles that had been plaguing them, often for many years.

When you walk into my office or that of any other serious and licensed hypnotherapist, you will not be put under a spell and asked to hop on one foot or cluck like a chicken. This is simply a misconception that is perpetrated on television shows.

Our goal is not to make you engage in ridiculous activities. In fact, your unconscious mind would never allow you to take part in such uncomfortable tricks. Instead, a hypnotherapist guides her clients into a relaxed state of body and mind that resembles the moments during which you are drifting off to sleep or waking up in the morning. Once this relaxation is achieved, the therapist will use a variety of techniques to awaken deep-rooted issues that may exist deep in the client’s past.

An experienced hypnotherapist can then essentially rewire the unconscious mind so that these issues no longer have the same power over a client’s current state of mind. I can understand if the concept of “rewiring the brain” seems scary and dangerous, but that could not be further from the truth.

Instead, clinical hypnotherapy is a safe and effective treatment that is performed with gentleness and deliberate care. The result will be removing psychological toxins from your way of thinking and therefore creating a better life.

What are some specific ways in which hypnotherapy can help you? You can expect to enjoy relief from anxiety, low self-confidence, stress, smoking, weight issues, phobias, sleep disorders, anger management, nail biting, depression, shyness, claustrophobia, impotence, allergies, substance abuse, panic attacks, fear of flying, poor memory and many more areas that interfere with the quality of your everyday existence.

If you are experiencing any of these problems, you already know that you are not as happy and satisfied as possible. Nothing else has worked—why shouldn’t you try something new?

I understand that you want to feel comfortable before embarking on any new path that will have a direct impact on your life, even if the journey is meant to bring you positive outcomes. I simply ask that you look more deeply into the possibilities that hypnotherapy offers and believe what your mind and heart are telling you about the process. Most clinical hypnotherapists choose their profession out of a genuine passion for helping people learn to live a fuller life that is rich in love.
