What is Hypnosis and Does Hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is a state of expanded awareness and the re-focus of attention inward. It is defined as a natural state of mind marked by a high degree of mental and physical relaxation. 

Modern professional hypnosis has come a long way! In recent years hypnosis and hypnotherapy has gained momentum and acceptance as part of the evolution of our heath care system. Increasingly, hypnosis is becoming mainstream and widely viewed as a powerful method for helping people to overcome addiction, relieve pain, reduce stress and to reach goals that were previously viewed as "out of reach".

Understanding Hypnosis

To understand Hypnosis we must first understand both the conscious mind and the subconscious mind! 

An iceberg is a great analogy that describes the connection between the conscious and the subconscious mind– with a small, visible part above the surface (conscious mind) and a huge part below (subconscious mind) as demonstrated in the picture.

The conscious mind is responsible for our awareness in our everyday waking state. For instance, our analytical thinking, creating logical order, wondering about cause and effect and asking “why” are all characteristics of the conscious mind. The conscious mind is the place of cognitive learning and understanding and uses the intellect to come up with logical solutions for problems.

The subconscious is the part of our mind which operates below the level of our normal conscious awareness. Like in the iceberg analogy, the subconscious mind is the vaster and more substantial part of our mind. It is the part of the mind that is in charge of our emotions, which explains why we can feel or behave in a certain way without really knowing why, or why we just can’t seem to master that “one” thing in life we so deeply wish for. The subconscious mind in part is like a storage space. In addition, our deepest core beliefs, values and behaviors are “anchored” and programmed into our subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind is also responsible for all physiological functions of the body; our heart rate, breathing, digestion and healing; even our habitual behaviors and automatic movements, such as walking and driving a car are part of this system. Neuroscience suggests that approximately 90% of our daily activities are regulated by the subconscious mind. Considering the vast responsibilities of the subconscious mind,its power and enormous potential become very obvious.

Simply put, the subconscious mind is the Most Powerful factor in determining the sort of Life we experience. Working directly with the subconscious mind provides the leverage to effectively create profound and long-lasting changes on the mental, emotional and physical level.

Commonly Asked Questions Answered

Q. Is it true that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis and what does that mean?

  • A. Yes, the state of hypnosis is self-directed. We help you achieve the state of hypnosis by teaching you how to use your conscious mind to literally relax your body. This first experience of having "total control" is empowering and important to your future success. Self hypnosis can be used at home to continue reprogramming for the changes you desire.

Q. What can I expect at the first appointment?

  • A. During the first appointment your hypnotherapist will conduct a full intake. Knowing your desired goals and what is unique about you is paramount to your long term success.  Like building a house, we begin at the foundation. It is in this first session that a strong foundation is laid for the work that will follow; moving you from behaviors which no longer serve you and into the goals you hold in your mind for yourself.

Q. Is there a difference between a “Hypnotist” and a “Clinical Hypnotherapist”?

  • A. Yes, there is a difference and it is in their training, education and diplomas. A “Hypnotist” at this level is trained to guide their clients into the state of hypnosis and then deliver suggestions for the desired change. A “Clinical Hypnotherapist” first possesses advanced training in hypnotism, and in addition, advanced training in analytical-hypnotherapy and clinical training in medical and dental settings. All Hypnotherapists at the Florida Hypnotherapy Center are required to have over 600 hrs of training and experience in clinical hypnotherapy and have Florida state licensed diplomas.

Q. What does analytical-hypnotherapy mean?

  • A. A well trained Clinical Hypnotherapist uses many modalities in their practice, not just suggestion therapy. For instance, modified gestalt therapy (also known as parts therapy), Core Transformation and Focusing, Age Regression and memory re-processing with core belief- reframing and Neuro-Linguistic Programming are among the methods used. 

Q. Does it cost more to see a Clinical Hypnotherapist?

  • A. No

Q. Who is a typical client for hypnosis and hypnotherapy?

  • A. The answer is most anyone.
