Hypnotherapy Clinical hypnotherapy is the skill of using the “tool” of hypnosis to change unwanted habits, behaviors and emotions at a subconscious level in the mind.

Hypnotherapists that utilize hypnotism have been able to help many people with psychological problems where many other therapies like counseling, psychotherapy and other modern day medicines have failed.

A skilled hypnotherapist can help people with most everyday problems in in just a few sessions. As the modern day techniques improve it is possible to help someone with issues like that of quitting smoking in one or two session.

Although hypnotism is now widely used in the healthcare industry many scientists still find it difficult to accept that clinical hypnotherapy produces absolutely amazing results for many people.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply a phenomenon that happens naturally when a person is totally focusing or concentrating on something. Its a daydreaming state of mind where as person is in what is considered to be a trance.

A person is capable of doing everything that they normally do consciously in hypnosis. The difference being when in the trance like state everything is done in “autopilot” without the need to think about anything.

We all know what its like when we are driving a car and we go in to hypnosis and miss a turn at a junction or arrive at our destination without being able to remember much of the journey.

Hypnosis is used in hypnotherapy as a “tool” to by-pass the analyzing part of the mind to gain access to the subconscious mind where all of our habits, behaviors and emotions are stored. This is when hypnotherapy is used to eliminate the bad habits and unwanted emotions or behaviors.

Hypnosis is Not Sleep

Hypnosis has nothing to do with being asleep. A person in hypnosis is actually in a heightened state of awareness which amplifies all of their senses.

We sometimes see a very deep state of hypnosis happening when a family member is “sleepwalking”. They are not actually asleep but seem to be carrying out different tasks (safely) totally oblivious to their surroundings (which also includes other people). They have their eyes open and seem to others to be in a trance.

Hypnotherapy For Performance Anxiety

Hypnotherapy is incredibly effective for overcoming performance anxiety. There are many different areas in a person’s life where there is a need to overcome performance anxiety. An example of this would be in the workplace where someone has to give a speech to work colleagues.

The thought of having to do so for many people can trigger off the “fight or flight” response where they will avoid speaking in public at all costs.

Performance anxiety is more commonly seen on television in programs like the X Factor where many of the contestants are not used to performing in front of other people. The symptoms of the anxiety are there for all to see.

You will see the contestants shaking uncontrollably, finding it hard to speak or forgetting the words of the song that they are singing.

Is Hypnotherapy Regulated?

Hypnotherapy is not yet regulated in the UK. There have been recommendations made by the House of Lords in to the possibility of self-regulation in the hypnotherapy profession. This process was overseen by The Prince’s Foundation for Integrated Health.

The Prince’s Foundation supported the endeavors of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council who have been involved in discussions with the U.K.C.H.O and W.G.H.R.

It has to be also said that many professional hypnotherapists in the UK do not see themselves as being “complementary therapists”.

UK Confederation of Hypnotherapy (U.K.C.H.O)

The main focus of U.K.C.H.O, is the regulation of the hypnotherapy profession. The U.K.C.H.O is a non profit umbrella body for the main hypnotherapy organizations. U.K.C.H.O represents at least nine of the main hypnotherapy organizations. Some of the main things that they would like to maintain are regulated standards of training and codes of conduct.

U.K.C.H.O website has a list of registered hypnotherapists. Unfortunately In the U K a few of the main organizations just don’t agree on many aspects of regulating the profession.

One thing that they all do agree with is the importance of seeking to protect the public and maintain professional standards.

Hypnotherapy For Phobias

Hypnotherapy is becoming more frequently used for treating phobias. Ericksonian hypnotherapy has proved incredibly effective in eliminating social phobias.

By using conversational language it helps the subconscious mind to view the fear in a totally different way. In neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) there is also the “fast phobia release” which utilizes visual imagery to release the fear.

Hypnotherapy For Jealousy In Relationships

When is comes to feelings of jealousy a person has to look at their own past to discover the initial sensitizing events which have triggered off the jealousy feelings. Most people that have tendencies to become jealous tend to have little to no confidence in themselves.

Two of the main reasons that a person becomes jealous in a relationship are:

  1. Having been let down or betrayed in an earlier relationship by a previous partner.
  2. Where there has been problems with forming relationships with the opposite sex as a child. When the person later enters in to serious relationship and the fear of losing their partner starts, this is where jealousy problems begin.

How Does Jealousy Manifest Itself?

Jealousy manifests itself in an adult when the person is entering in to a similar situation as the recorded trauma of the past. The subconscious mind remembers the incident and kicks in to survival mode in the person’s current relationship, which causes stress and anxiety.

The only way that a person finds it possible to overcome the stress is by becoming very possessive of their partner.

A few examples of these actions would be:

  • Constantly asking the partner where they have been and who have they been with.
  • Habitually checking their partners text messages and phone calls.
  • Following their partner in secret.
  • Constantly asking friends and family about what their partner has been doing.
  • Being instantly aggressive towards people of the same sex as themselves who are in close proximity to their partner.
  • It is also quite common in females to smell their partners cloths for unfamiliar fragrances.

How To Overcome Jealousy

By using the “tool” of hypnosis to gain access to the subconscious mind, hypnotherapy can then be used to eliminate the initial traumatic sensitizing events of the past. When this happens the feelings of jealousy are also eliminated in a person’s current relationship.

Its also very important to then for a hypnotherapist to help the person to boost their own self-confidence.

Hypnotherapy For Childbirth

Hypnotherapy for childbirth is becoming more widely used for childbirth. Many women want to give birth as natural as possible without the use of drugs for pain management. Prior to giving birth a woman can be trained to use effective self-hypnosis to totally eliminate the pain when giving birth.

This is commonly known as hypnobirthing.

Hypnotherapy For Confidence

Hypnotherapy for confidence building is incredibly successful. A skilled hypnotherapist will be able to help you to build your self-confidence for a wide range of different issues.

Maybe you just need some confidence to stand up to someone who has been bullying you at work, or perhaps you need a confidence boost to ask your boss for a pay rise, or just to be able to be self-confident to ask someone to go on a date with you.

Whatever the case may be hypnotherapy for confidence is wonderful for improving an individual’s personal development.

Hypnotherapy For Tinnitus

Hypnotherapy does work very well for tinnitus. Many sufferers of tinnitus discover when they use hypnotherapy for tinnitus the phantom sounds and noise levels can be turned down to a manageable level. In many cases hypnotherapy for tinnitus can actually eliminate the tinnitus all together.
