People have problems. This is true. Do they solve those problems? No. What does this create in the end? A person not satisfied with life, bitter, nervous, easily agitated, eagerly awaiting any confrontation and conflict. So, is this how you see yourself in a couple of years, maybe a decade? If yes, then it is clearly a time to do something about it, to start sinking teeth into those problems and eliminate them, one by one.
Help is on the way
Of course, no soldier goes in war without a weapon and in this case, hypnosis might be that weapon. What’s the point of seeing a hypnotherapist? How will that help? Well, first of all, people should understand a thing or two about hypnosis. A person under the influence of hypnosis is not a zombie or something; he or she acts and lives normally. But in case of the problems that hypnosis is supposed to help with, people might act a bit differently, with a bit more self esteem and confidence, they tend to be a bit braver than before, and in most cases, that is all which is required for successfully dealing with certain life problems. How does hypnosis work?
It can be explained as messages sent into the subconscious of hypnotized person. These messages might be considered as confidence boosters. Imagine a football player with his muscles presenting a conscious level. His motivation is subconscious level and guess what raises that motivation level - nothing else than a blond cheerleader girl who is jumping and yelling besides the field. That mesmerizing girl can easily motivate the player not because of her looks and singing, but because motivation already exists within our football player, so all that is needed is a strategically placed push. As already said, nothing more than that. If there already exists desire to succeed, to raise above the current mental level, than hypnosis is there just to enhance that desire, which will be enough for a person to move and start changing things in life.
A therapy session
Therapy sessions usually last one hour and in that time, a hypnotherapist starts hypnosis by asking questions regarding problems and desires of the person in question. Later on, hypnosis might be induced with using helpful phrases and suggestions. As said, the most important thing here is to embrace the thought of being hypnotized, to see it as a sort of help and not something which might disturb the subconscious waters. Also, if a person feels uncomfortable with someone plating with their subconscious, he or she might try using autohypnosis, which, with a bit of practice can really be effective.
