Communication With The Subconscious
of our behaviour, whether good or bad is learned from and influenced by
parents, peers and other situations and events which have occurred
throughout our lifetime.
Stage hypnosis is very entertaining but must not be confused with the clinical application of hypnosis. Clinical hypnosis is generally a very pleasant, relaxed experience and can be described as the state and feeling which one experiences when moving from the awakened state to the sleeping state. The subject does not lose either consciousness or control of their behaviour. They hover in that state of drowsiness with a pleasant drifting feeling that one experiences when dropping off to sleep. Fully hearing the words of the therapist and all the normal surrounding sounds and events taking place in the consulting room and even the sounds outside.
to the sometimes held belief that one loses control and becomes
unconscious under hypnosis, this is simply not so. The subject is
fully aware of everything that takes place and can call a halt to the
proceedings at anytime, if they so desire. They will not, nor can
they be made to behave in any way that is alien or unacceptable to them,
we only use 10% of our brain there is obviously a large part remaining
that we have yet to utilise. Hypnosis has been used for many years
as means of anaesthesia for surgical operations and the like.
Russia and China, amongst others, have probably been a greater users for these techniques for such
purposes with astounding successes. We in the west have been a
little sceptical until more recent times because of the poor publicity
that had been aimed at it in earlier years by various establishments
wishing to protect their own interests and methods.
there is now much scientific evidence, which supports Hypnosis
alternative methods of therapeutic intervention are now more widely
accepted and used, as and when their benefits are rediscovered. Such is
the case with properly administered Clinical Hypnosis by a certified practitioner. The more recently publicised uses of clinical
hypnotherapy in the UK have been with childbirth, smoking cessation,
phobias etc. However within the circle of professional therapists it is
widely acknowledged that there are now so many successes covering a very
wide range of problems and following these, there is an ever growing
demand for treatments from the public as they become increasingly aware
of the benefits. See treatments page
