Hypnotherapy – What IS it and how does it work?
Hypnotherapy is an extremely interesting field. Also a little scary for those that only know a little.
As a hypnotherapist I am used to the same questions popping up about hypnotherapy and what I do for a living. People like you are almost always curious about the ins and outs of the process. Questions that often pop up are:
- What IS hypnosis anyway?
- What does it feel like to go into a hypnotic trance?
- Will I get stuck in trance?
Is hypnosis safe?
This is the one question that concerns people the most. The quick answer is YES! In the past hypnotherapy was often tried as a last resort. There simply wasn’t enough good quality information around to help people to make an informed decision about seeing a hypnotherapist.
These days though that has all changed. There are thousands of websites that look at hypnotherapy and there are lots of websites that list practitioners to help you to find a professional hypnotherapist near you.
Are hypnotists and hypnotherapists the same thing?
The two terms are sometimes used interchangably but they technically have different definitions. A hypnotist is someone who uses hypnosis. This is often in a comedy or entertainment sense. A hypnotherapist is someone who uses hypnosis in a therapeutic way. Usually to help someone to achieve a personal goal.
Other information about hypnosis
As a professional hypnotherapist I have heard pretty much all the questions over the years and I have also helped some people to make some truly amazing changes to their lives (which has been a real honour!)
I have used the questions I have been asked and the experiences I have had working with people just like you to write a wide range of blog posts about hypnosis, hypnotherapy and hypnotists.
Below are all the blog posts about hypnotherapy that I have written. I am sure that they will give you a much deeper insight into hypnosis and what it could do for you in the future.
