HYPNOTHERAPY

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of altered awareness in which the imagination rather than the intellect is active.

It cannot be forced upon people - it is a state which clients allow themselves to enter.
In this sense all hypnosis is - self hypnosis.

Hypnosis has been around for thousands of years, it is simply a relaxed, focused state of concentration.

You do it almost every day.

Every time you daydream, or visualise an event in the past or future, that's hypnosis.

Our Immune function is dramatically affected by our thoughts.

In Hypnosis the immune function can be enhanced or suppressed contributing to the healing process.

4 Hypnosis Myths Exploded

OVER the years, hypnosis has picked up all sorts of weird associations from stage hypnotists, the media and superstition. This is a great shame, because in reality, hypnosis is your single most effective tool for change. Hypnosis is your birthright, and you should know how to use it so it doesn't use you. Here we dispel the biggest hypnosis myths.

Hypnosis Myth 1) All hypnosis is the same

As with anything, hypnosis can be good, bad or indifferent. The most common is old-style authoritarian hypnosis of the type "You are getting sleepy, you are feeling confident". Unsurprisingly, this sort of hypnosis doesn't work well with many people. Good hypnosis uses subtle psychological principles and advanced communication patterns.

It's like the difference between a football coach who thinks you'll perform best if he yells at you, compared with the more elegant style of a great leader who knows that to get the best from his people, he needs to understand motivation, to cajole, encourage and reward.

Hypnosis Downloads offers hundreds of sessions using the best type of hypnosis.

Hypnosis Myth 2) Some people can't be hypnotized

The only reason you can't be hypnotized is if you are incapable of paying attention due to extremely low IQ or brain damage. That's not to say that every hypnotist can hypnotize you however. The more flexible the hypnotist, the more effective she will be with the largest number of people.

Hypnosis Myth 3) Hypnosis is something weird that other people do to you

If you couldn't go into hypnosis, you wouldn't be able to sleep, to learn, or get nervous through 'negative self hypnosis'. (You know when you imagine things going wrong and it makes you feel anxious? Well that's self hypnosis!)

Hypnosis is simply a deliberate utilization of the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) or dream state. We're not giving people medication here – if it wasn't a natural ability, hypnosis wouldn't work!

Hypnosis Myth 4) You lose control in hypnosis

Crazy news stories, stage hypnotists and gossip have created the illusion that you lose control in hypnosis. In fact, when hypnotized, you are relaxed and focused – and able to choose to get up and walk away at any time. You choose to give your attention to the hypnotist, and you can withdraw it at any time.

If you have been scared of hypnosis in the past, this article has hopefully convinced you to at least give it a try.

What is Psychology/Psychotherapy?
Psychology is the study of human behaviour, the motivational forces within individuals and their responses to the environment - specifically - other people.

Psychotherapy is the application of psychological knowledge in the treatment of illness and disease.

Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is simply a form of psychotherapy, which uses hypnosis as powerful tool to facilitate change. It is used world wide.

Hypnotherapy is much more than just hypnosis, in that it looks for solutions and answers within your own mind.

With Hypnotherapy, your subconscious creates new and more powerful ways to solve problems, overcome fears and limitations, and make lasting changes in your life !

Will I be in control and aware of what is happening?
Yes, all the time.

You do not go ‘to sleep’.

You are not un-conscious.

You are in an alternative state of consciousness with a very narrow focus of attention.

You can hear everything that is being said.

Nothing happens without your consent. You have absolute control. However, you are extremely relaxed.

HYPNOS
"Divine Hypnos, god who knows no pain,
Hypnos, stranger to anguish,
come in favor to us, come happy, and giving happiness,
great king... come with power to heal!"
                                                        Sophocles, Philoctetes

The Scottish physician James Braid named hypnosis (an abbreviation from 'neurohypnosis') after Hypnos, the Greek god of sleep (Latin name: Somnus).

A Summary of the Greek Myth of Hypnos
Hypnos was one of the many relatively minor and very ancient deities of the Greek pantheon.

The similarities in appearance and behaviour between the god of Sleep and Hermes (Latin: Mercury) are so apparent, however, that it is compelling to speculate that the two are linked, or that Hypnos is in some way a particular aspect of Hermes.

Hermes was one of the major Olympian gods and appeared later than Hypnos, it is probable that as Greek civilisation developed the minor, rural deities were absorbed into the official Olympian pantheon in this way.

Hypnos the Bountiful, as he was known by the ancients, rests in the arms of his mother Nyx (Night).

His father is Erebus, the pure darkness of Hades, the Underworld.

Hypnos dwells with his twin brother Thanatos, god of Death, in a dark cave by the banks of the river Lethe (Oblivion), at the entrance to Hades.

The cave is surrounded by opium poppies and other sleep-inducing herbs.

Hypnos is a gentle and benevolent god who sometimes takes the form of a singing bird, sometimes that of a winged youth or old man.

He carries a drinking horn, from which he pours sleep-inducing opium.

He is most beloved of the Muses, and his spouse is Pasithea, one of the Charities.

Together they have three children, Morpheus, Phobetor, and Phantasus who occupy the dreams of men.

Morpheus appears in human form in our dreams, Phobetor as birds and animals, and Phantasus as all the animate objects of our dreams.

Hypnos delivers mortals from pain and mental suffering, with the help of his sons and his brother Oniros (Dream) he colours their sleep with dreams.

Hypnos opens two gates, the Gates of Horn and Ivory, through which Oniros comes into the minds of men.

Through the Gates of Horn come prophetic dreams, and through the Gates of Ivory come deceptive dreams which mislead.
