My view on Hypnosis
After studying and working with many models of hypnosis and examining the most plausible scientific evidence, I have reached the personal view is that hypnosis is not a special or altered state, rather it is a completely natural condition of the mind where you experience a very specific type of focus, often accompanied by deep relaxation. It is a mind-set that allows you to access very powerful resources of the psyche, including all mind-states. It can be considered as the ¨mother¨ of all psychotherapies!
In my opinion, hypnosis, in combination with Cognitive-Behavioural and Coaching Techniques, is quite simply the most powerful change technology that exists. Even though there are many different views on hypnosis, I believe that there are some that are more in line with reality than others.
While many of the effects and changes people report seem to be magical (such as having profound experiences that resolve deep issues rapidly) the magic is not because of a hypnotist’s power or skill, it is because of the individual’s ability to enter into the process. It is a two-way, collaborative process where the hypnotist shows you how to use your mind in ways that are most aligned with the reality you prefer. The truly magical moment comes when you realise that you are always able to connect with a vast reservoir of abilities, insights and wisdom. Hypnotherapy can show you how.
