What is Hypnosis?
There is a difference between Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of focus consciousness; your hypnotherapist will assist you in learning how to achieve this state by guiding you into it. Once this has been achieved, you will then receive hypnotic suggestions. These suggestions will enable you to use the power of hypnosis in your life and make the changes you desire. Hypnosis is a tool that can help you, just like it has helped millions of other people take back control of their lives.
Being in hypnosis is very similar to experiencing a day dream. Usually you will feel relaxed. Hypnosis in and of itself is a very pleasant experience. It is a time to let go of the other thoughts of the day and to focus on the issues you came in for. The hypnotherapist and client work together to overcome the issue at hand. You are always in control, in most cases the client is completely aware of communication and is able to respond on request either verbally or by signal, the hypnotherapist never has control over you, it is safe, healthy and natural.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the applied use of hypnosis. Therapy can be defined as anything that is done to move someone towards health and wholeness. Thus, hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to help you move towards health and wholeness.
Hypnotherapy is also used to help you reach goals when nothing else has helped. Self-hypnosis may also be part of a good hypnotherapy program. Ask your hypnotherapist if using self-hypnosis is recommended to help you reach your goals.
