Hypnotherapy can be a wonderful opportunity to truly come to know yourself, to gain perspective, perception, and learn from your past. Alchemical Hypnotherapy is a client-centered process, which empowers the client. You proceed at your own pace ~ dealing with your own issues ~ setting your goals and learning to heal your life. Therapy can provide short cuts for your personal growth. It allows you to see the patterns of your behavior, and through hypnosis, reprogram your internal tapes in order for you to have a more productive life and healthier relationships. The roots of all mental and emotional issues lie within the Spirit. Heal the Spiritual wounds and you begin the journey of self-actualization. Once you can see the patterns of your behavior ~ as opposed to living them ~ you become capable of choices. Working with a good therapist can help you make new choices, which support your life goals.
What Is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy uses deep physical and mental relaxation, which allows direct communication with the subconscious. Hypnosis is gentle, fast and very effective. Relaxation, improved stress management and increased self-awareness are automatic by-products of the process. Hypnotherapy is safe and gentle. You are always aware. You are always in charge.
How Does The Subconscious Accept Hypnotic Suggestions?
Hypnotic suggestions bypass the conscious mind, and zero in on the subconscious. When given a new suggestion that is within the bounds of a person’s belief system and moral orientation, the subconscious mind accepts the suggestion literally as new reality.
How Does Hypnosis Help People?
The ability to reprogram emotional attitudes and reactions is a talent within every human being. Hypnosis is the most functional and reasonable way to train life long attitudes, rather than suffer a lifetime of emotional incidents that the conscious mind is unable to change.
Can Any Person Be Hypnotized?
People of average intelligence (unless there is some sort of organic brain damage) can be hypnotized in most cases. The depth of hypnosis varies with a person’s ability to respond. If you are not a naturally responsive subject, you can improve your receptivity to hypnosis with practice.
Is Hypnosis Medically Approved?
Yes. The American Medical Assoc. and the American Psychiatric Assoc. have approved hypnotherapy for use by professionally responsible individuals. The British Medical Association also adopted Hypnosis as a viable therapeutic tool in 1958 (the same year as the AMA).
Are The Results Permanent?
Suggestions stay with some individuals indefinitely, others need reinforcement. The effects of hypnosis are cumulative. The more the techniques are practiced and post-hypnotic suggestions are brought into play, the more permanent the result becomes. Self-hypnosis training and reinforcement tapes for home use provide additional help.
The Value of the Hypnotherapist
Hypnotherapy is a consent system, in which a Hypnotherapist guides and counsels the client. Skills and training are essential to create the greatest benefit for the client. National Certification and Continued Education are essential.
