The Type Of People That Choose To Use Hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is becoming a more legitimate choice in the
treatment of phobias, building confidence, and to help with
health issues such as quitting smoking and losing weight.
Here is a little history about hypnosis to get you started.
Since the start of civilization, people have turned to wise men
and women in their communities to help them with their
Often, aspects of hypnosis were used, such as
trance-inducing medicines, magic spell, or mystical talk. In
the 1900s, some doctors found that they could achieve
improvements in mental health by hypnotizing their patients and
having them go back to their early childhood.
This gradually developed into the hypnotherapy that we know
today. From this, Neuro-Linguistic
Programming, also known as NLP, was developed. While
NLP is now used by most hypnotherapists, it started out being
marketed as a self-help method. Modern methods of hypnosis
offer relief from sadness, fear and anger.
They also allow the person to live in a state of contentment
and peace. Hypnotherapy, which started out passive, is becoming
more and more active. It has evolved into two types of clients
those who chose hypnotherapy out of proof and those who chose
it out of a need for direction.
The person who chooses hypnotherapy based on proof knows the
history of it. They often know someone how has had hypnotherapy
and received results from it. They may have seen demonstrations
in person or on TV, and have made their decision to try it
based on evidence and proof.
They want to control their lives and benefit from a more
active treatment. The active route they choose is often faster
and more complete. The person who chooses it out of need for
direction has often taken a back seat in life for so long that
it has become a habit.

Hypnosis And Meditation
Thinking versus not thinking
But there is a major reversal when it comes to thinking in relation to meditation and hypnosis. With hypnosis you strive to still think unlike meditation where you try to clear the mind and not think.
A great beginning point
For this reason hypnosis is a great precursor to meditation. Why? Because as one enters hypnosis and reaches the subconscious mind old programmed thought patterns can be released thus freeing up and clearing the mind for a deep a quiet level or state of meditation.
They may feel afraid of trying to take control of their life
because of past bad experiences. They want to be told how to
act or feel because they are afraid of taking responsibility
themselves. They come to hypnotherapy so that they can be made
to behave in a different way. They prefer a more passive
approach, but it often takes longer to receive a good result,
and results may only be partial.
A more active treatment with your hypnotherapist might be a
little nerve-wracking, particularly if you chose
hypnotherapy out of need and not proof, but the benefits
are definitely worth it. You will get used to helping your
therapist help you, which in turn will cause you to feel
more in control.
In some cases, very passive trance hypnosis can be used to
encourage a more active therapy approach from a patient.
Keep in mind that hypnotherapy is different for
But this is exactly where hypnosis can
help and that is with implanting the
subconscious with what you are picturing or
imagining you want to happen.
A person can do this with the power of
their mind and it is worth the effort.
Whether you chose an active or passive approach is between
you and your therapist. Regardless of the path, it is more
than likely going to need several sessions and some work on
your part in order to achieve results. But going in with an
open mind and a willingness to try something new will allow
you to have the best possible treatment.
