What Is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy or hypnosis; is guided visualisation and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance.
Hypnosis is usually done on your own or with the help of a therapist using verbal iteration and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed and are more open to suggestions.
How can hypnotherapy help me?
Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviours or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestions during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behaviour.
Common Conditions that Hypnosis is used for:
During your hypnotherapy session with DASETi:
Our therapist will explain the process of hypnosis and review your treatment goals. Then the therapist will typically guide you in a gentle, soothing tone and describe images that create a sense of relaxation, security, and well-being.
When you’re in a receptive state, the therapist will suggest ways for you to achieve your goals, such as reducing pain or eliminating cravings to smoke. The therapist may also help you visualize vivid, meaningful mental images of yourself accomplishing your goals.
In Hypnosis it maybe sleep like but not totally unconscious or asleep. Meaning you are fully aware and can wakeup anytime. When the session is over, the therapist will wake you so you can get the full benefit from each session.
Contrary to how hypnosis is sometimes portrayed in movies or on television, you don’t lose control over your behaviour while under hypnosis. Also, you generally remain aware of and remember what happens during hypnosis.
You may eventually be able to learn self-hypnosis, in which you induce a state of hypnosis in yourself. You can use this skill as needed — for instance, after a chemotherapy session or before you go on stage to speak, the skills are rather universal.
