If you are looking for hypnosis or psychotherapy, you first need to know and understand both what hypnosis and psychotherapy are, and what they aren't.
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and concentration at one with a state of heightened awareness; induced by suggestion. Hypnosis can be induced by auto-suggestion (Self Hypnosis) or the recipient may accept the suggestions given by another (Hetero Hypnosis). One widely held view is that all Hypnosis is really Self Hypnosis; in as much as the state of Hypnosis is really induced by the subject, by using their own thought processes.
Most people experience periods of Hypnosis many times during the course of their usual wakeful day, certainly at least twice a day, when they pass through a transient intermediate state of Hypnosis, upon waking up (the Hypnopompic state), and when falling asleep (the Hypnagogic state).
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural phenomenon, and a natural manifestation of the mind at work. A person in Hypnosis is not unconscious, in fact they are very aware. All the senses are enhanced, smell, hearing, etc. They can converse without disturbing the state, they know what is being said and can remember it afterwards if they want to.
The visible signs of Hypnosis to the operator (i.e. the Hypnotist) are variable: flickering eyelids, swallowing, facial flush, slower breathing, etc. and are dependent upon the individual subject concerned.
Similarly, for the subject, there is no one particular feeling associated with being in Hypnosis. Different people respond, well, differently. The feelings can be very slight or very evident to the recipient, for example: possibly a heavy or a light feeling in limbs or body; or tingling sensations (pins and needles) in extremities; or a slight tickling sensation on face or anywhere; or perhaps a feeling of falling or sinking into the couch; or a floating feeling; or a disjointed feeling of limbs, etc.
Most people have at least some appreciation of the existence of Hypnosis and the effects that may be produced using Hypnosis; through having watched shows that make use Hypnosis, such as Paul McKenna’s stage show. Far fewer people have any appreciation at all of the therapeutic use of Hypnosis, in providing positive assistance to people.
However, Hypnosis can be of tremendous benefit in providing relief for physiological symptoms that are psychically caused (i.e. non-medical symptoms), and for assistance with any problem where emotional or psychological unconscious forces are involved.
However, by itself, Hypnosis is just a very pleasant relaxed state with, apart from helping to the body to temporarily escape from stress, little therapeutic value.
One definition of psychotherapy is as follows:
"In the most inclusive sense, the use of absolutely any technique or procedure that has palliative or curative effects upon any mental, emotional or behavioural disorder. In this general sense the term is neutral with regard to the theory that may underlie it, the actual procedures and techniques entailed and the form and duration of treatment.
There may, however, be legal and professional issues involved in the actual practice of what is called psychotherapy, and in the technical literature the term is properly used only when the teratment is is carried out by someone with recognised training and using accepted techniques.
The term is often shortened to therapy, particularly when modifiers are appended to identify the form of therapy or the theoretical orientation of the therapist."
A psychotherapist, practising psychotherapy, usually provides assistance to the client that is focused on helping the client to change, so that the client becomes more able to deal with life's challenges themselves.
Hypnotherapy is a very advanced form of psychotherapy that is carried out whilst the client is in a hypnotic state, as described previously on this page. It is carried out by trained psychotherapists that have been trained in the way that the mind works, both whilst in Hypnosis, and out of Hypnosis, and are experienced in the safe and effective use use of Hypnosis in therapy.
Peter's own Therapeutic Hypnosis hypnotherapy treatment is particularly effective at helping clients with a wide range of problems and symptoms.
