What is Hypnotherapy?

Have you ever wondered why when you have tried to change a habit or behavior it usually resurfaces? This is because our conscious willpower usually cannot compete with the power of the subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root of many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes and motivations. Hypnosis is believed to be a powerful tool for accessing the subconscious mind and creating dramatic improvements in our lives.

During your private hypnotherapy session you will remain completely aware of everything that is going on. In fact, many people experience a hyper awareness where sounds appear enriched, thoughts clearer and your ability to imagine and visualize is greatly enhanced. It is common for these hypnotic experiences to create sensations of deep relaxation, fluid warmth or a pleasant tingling sensation or buzz throughout your physical body. Many describe the hypnotic state as a complete and total escape from all physical tension and emotional stress, while remaining completely alert.

You are welcome to join me at my Wishaw or Glasgow Hypnotherapy Clinic.

What is a Hypnotherapist?
Alternative Health Care Professional

This is a common question from individuals encountering the profession for the first time. While the media has increasingly presented the virtues of hypnosis for a wide variety of applications, rarely do they make the distinction between a Hypnotherapist and other health care professionals.

Many people assume that a Hypnotherapist must be a Psychologist or Medical Doctor. Hypnotherapist however, is a profession in and of itself whose scope and preparation is quite different from these other professions.

Only the Medical Doctor is recognized by the Health Board to diagnose and treat medical disorders. Medical disorders can be defined as any symptom with a possible medical etiology; such as headaches, backaches, blurred vision, etc.

The Psychologist is the professional trained to diagnose and treat emotional and mental disorders, If medical disorders are the domain of the Medical Doctor and emotional and mental disorders the scope of the psychologist, what then is the domain of the Hypnotherapist?

The answer is technically called vocational and avocational self improvement. In simple language, these are things that do not qualify as a medical disorder or an emotional and mental disorder. In the scope of the health services, these are the little things. But it is the little things that the majority of people are struggling with.

In this country, two thirds of the adult population are overweight, one third smoke cigarettes and 70 percent suffer from some form of insomnia. It is probably even safe to say that 95 percent of the people you know would like to improve in some area or another. Sports performance, confidence, motivation and more are all the specialty of the Hypnotherapist.

Unlike Psychologists and Medical Doctors, the Hypnotherapist is the only professional specifically trained to work in these areas. In fact, the HMI graduate has more hours, length and depth of training in hypnotherapy than any other health care professional.
