Techniques That Your
Hypnotherapist May Use
Techniques That Your Hypnotherapist May Use. If you are a
therapist, self hypnosis and hypnotherapy might go hand in hand
when you are treating your patients.
They can be used with each other as complementary therapies
and might help you to achieve greater success with your
clients. One option is to have the patient learn self hypnosis
prior to starting hypnotherapy.
While they could receive a tape or a CD to listen to at
home, by teaching them the actual process without the
assistance of recordings you can really empower them. The
theory behind that is if a client comes to you for help with
one issue, say over eating, they can learn the process of self
That way, if in a few months or even a few years they decide
to tackle another problem, maybe their smoking or drinking
habit, they will not have to return to you, but instead will
already have the skills that they need to fight the
You also want to get your patients to a place where they
feel that they were the ones responsible for making the change.
That way they can rely on themselves instead of being
codependent on a therapist. With this thinking, they can take
charge of their lives and tackle other goals and problems that
they may be facing.
Of course, teaching self hypnosis in one session can be a
bit of a challenge. Here are a few suggestions. First, you
might start out with Chevreuls pendulum and explain the
connection between the mind and our bodies.
That way, they understand the connection between imagining
their bodies relaxing and their bodies actually doing so, as it

To help patients relax because relaxed and happy patients respond better to treatment than unhappy and stressed patients, but usually as part of a wider relaxation and wellness program that may include other relaxation techniques as well.
Generally, hypnosis is experiencing a wider acceptance as a valid way to help people overcome phobias, anxiety and even obesity and insomnia. And because there are really no side effects to hypnosis it is also much safer than many other ways of dealing with these issues.
This should prove to them the connection between their mind and
body, since they can feel the relaxation for themselves. Next,
you can have the client sit down and do a short landscape
induction. This can help with the clients imagination.
Afterwards, you can use the self change hypnosis induction and
post hypnotic suggestions. Afterwards, you can then encourage a
patient to do the first element of the self-change hypnosis
induction themselves, and you follow up with the rest of the
This allows the patient to experience hypnosis for a second
time in one session. Lastly, you can do a third round of
hypnosis where the patient does all of the self-change
hypnosis induction and gives themselves post hypnotic
suggestions. By using the self change hypnosis technique,
it is almost fool proof for the client to learn.
Believe it is possible what ever it is,
and through visualizations, and hypnotism
you can manifest the success with whatever
goal you are trying to achieve
The easier it is for them to learn and remember, the more
likely they will be to try it for themselves once they have
left your office, and the more likely they will be to see
results. There may be some clients who have difficulties
with the whole procedure, and for these clients multiple
sessions may be required to master the technique. Once

challenge that they may be facing.
