Although most people associate hypnosis with who have seen losing control of themselves on stage (scenario hypnosis), hypnotherapy can be beneficial in overcoming numerous problems, which is a fact recognized even by medical professionals today. Hypnosis in the stage deceives people into believing that a person loses control of himself. Quite the contrary, the individual is even more aware of their surroundings while undergoing hypnosis, and can have many beneficial effects on the person’s health and general well-being.
What are the benefits of hypnotherapy?
During actual well therapy, the person is deeply relaxed and increases their reception to positive suggestions, similar to what the person experiences when they are about to fall asleep. During hypnosis, the focus is on the subconscious part of the mind, which controls the behavior and reactions of the person, rather than the conscious mind. Thanks to what is known as “conditioning”, people are able to control their behavior. The subconscious contains a storehouse of individual responses, experiences and reactions, while the unconscious mind contains information inaccessible to the conscious mind, which can be reached when subjected to hypnosis.
Hypnosis is particularly effective in overcoming stress and anxiety. Once a person dominates the way in which he reaches the relaxed state, he is no longer affected by the damaging consequences of stress. Hypnotherapy can also help to stop smoking, overcoming fears and phobias and increasing self-confidence. Conditional behavior is susceptible to change and when a person is under hypnosis he is more open to positive suggestions at the subconscious level. Once these positive suggestions are approved by the subconscious mind, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is carried out, which changes the way the person thinks in relation to smoking, thus overcoming the conditioning behavior addictive.
Since a person is able to communicate with their subconscious mind in a state of hypnosis, this makes it possible for the hypnotherapist to penetrate the reasons behind the person’s fears and phobias, asking questions to which the subject is capable of responding using a direct view of their own reactions. Thus, the therapist is able to come up with solutions to help in the treatment of fears and phobias, after identifying their causes. Hypnotherapy can also help people feel safer and more skilled. The only necessary condition for hypnotherapy is the belief of the subject who will do it. This is because people respond more quickly to positive suggestions when they undergo hypnosis with a very deep state of relaxation.
