HYPNOSIS CAN BE USED FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT AND IN TALK THERAPY
There are many misconceptions of what hypnosis is and does. So let me tell you straight out, if you choose to use hypnosis as a tool to help you in your therapy… your mind will not be controlled by the therapist nor will you ever do something you’d be uncomfortable with.
Hypnotherapy is a method of communication between you and the therapist that induces a trance or a trance-like state. You can also do trance or self hypnosis on your own, in fact I’m sure you have many, many times without calling it hypnosis! It’s a naturally occurring state in which one’s attention is narrowly focused and relatively free of distractions.
Examples I use to describe trance states include driving your car to work, but not remembering the details of the drive, or your daydream of making that winning putt or visualizing a special, peaceful place to go to in your mind. You focus your attention so narrow that other stimuli in the environment are ignored or blocked out of consciousness.
Using hypnosis with a professionally trained psychotherapist can help you reach thoughts, feelings and memories that have been forgotten or previously unconscious to you. Hypnosis is one of many tools a therapist may use to help you in accomplishing your goals in therapy.
