What exactly is hypnosis?

Although some cultures have known about hypnosis or hypnosis-like techniques for centuries, they didn’t rise to fame in Europe until the 1770s when the Austrian physician, Franz Anton Mesmer became the first European physician to heal his patients by putting them into a "trance".

After Mesmer introduced the phenomenon of the "trance" to new medical research, it was then two British gentlemen who continued to develop therapeutic hypnosis to the level of fame and success we know today.

While Mesmer considered the trance to be only a "secondary result" of his "magnetism", the English ophthalmologist, James Braid (1795-1860), realised that this sleep-like state could also be induced with eye-fixation. It was, therefore, Braid who coined the term “hypnosis” after the Greek god "Hypnos".

However, the real triumph of hypnosis in Europe was triggered by the Scottish surgeon, James Esdaile (1808-1859), who discovered the "hypnotic coma". 
Esdaile used hypnosis in place of anaesthetic and performed over 1000 surgeries with it, reducing the mortality rate from 50% to 5%.

Since then, hypnosis has become a well-known method of anaesthesia in medicine, which is still commonly used today in dentistry and "natural childbirth".

What do we mean by “Trance”?

Strictly speaking, the term “trance” does not refer to a single state, but to a variety of states in which our mind or consciousness is so altered compared to "normal" waking consciousness that we are simultaneously relaxed and completely focused on "inner" processes.

In other words, when in trance, one is so "merged" with one's (inner) experience that all other thought and perception processes are "blanked out" for that period of time.

The “trance” state thus allows the hypnotist to “fuse” ideas and images with the patient’s subconscious while they remain aware yet physically relaxed with their eyes closed.
In other words, all I do as a hypnotist is skilfully guide you to focus "inward" on specific thoughts, images, and sensations, blocking out everything else around you and allowing these images and sensations to become your sole reality for the period of hypnosis.

To summarise, the term “hypnosis” describes two things:

Both, the method of leading someone into a “trance” (inner absorption) and the state of “trance” itself.

What are the benefits of the “trance”?

The biggest advantage of this trance state is that it allows you to access your purely reflective intellect, (the smallest part of the consciousness), unlocking your full mental potential.

Why will hypnosis work for you?

Hypnosis helps you locate and dissolve old, out-dated, and unhelpful beliefs while implementing new ways of thinking and feeling, empowering you to positively change your behaviour.

In practice, your hypnotist or hypnotherapist puts you into a trance, a relaxed but highly focused state in which you can bypass the critical mind. 

Your mind will be completely relaxed, giving your brain space to (re)learn and allowing your mind to be open to new ideas and suggestions which you may reject in waking life.

Hypnosis, then, works by allowing you to change your unconscious thought processes so that you can consciously achieve your goals…

Frequently Asked Questions about Hypnotherapy

How many hypnosis sessions are necessary for success?

The exact number of sessions will vary from patient to patient. Although hypnosis is a process and you will need to return for multiple sessions, patients often experience results immediately from the first session.

I aim to provide you with an effective hypnosis treatment in as few sessions as possible. Typically, I will schedule you in for a short series of sessions, allowing for effective treatment and continued reinforcement, alongside self-hypnosis training, and any other techniques you require based on your individual experience.

What happens when you are in a trance?

Hypnosis is not something I do to you, but something I do with you and can teach you. You will be sitting in a comfortable chair with your eyes closed, listening to me tell you a story. You will be aware and attentive the whole time and able to remember the entire treatment clearly. You will always have full control and can stop the session whenever you require.

Hypnosis is usually a lot of fun for patients and many clients report feeling recovered, refreshed, and renewed at the end of a session.

What does it feel like to be in hypnosis?

Most people report feeling relaxed and "awake" at the same time. Although media representations of hypnosis present a “magic feeling” that comes over you and a loss of control, this is not the case. In fact, most clients are surprised by how pleasant yet "normal" the experience feels. Commonly, patients are shocked to feel familiar with the state of hypnosis, as though they have experienced this before without knowing.

Do I have control over myself at all times and am I aware of what is happening?

Yes, hypnosis is best described as a state of heightened awareness. You will always know where you are, who you are with, and what you are doing. You will always be in control and can stop the hypnosis at any time if you do not wish to continue.

How effective is hypnosis as a long-term cure?

Hypnosis has been proven to be extremely successful in tackling numerous problems, such as quitting smoking, overcoming anxiety, weight loss, allergies, and so much more.

Will I sleep during my session?

No. Although many stage hypnotists like to use the word "sleep", hypnosis is not about "sleeping". The trance state of hypnosis is best described as a wonderful daydream where you are awake yet completely absorbed in your inner world.

How can hypnosis help fight anxiety and panic?

Firstly, it is important to understand that anxiety is a natural bodily reaction that we don’t want to stop completely.

When we speak of hypnosis curing "anxiety and panic", we’re referring to patients who experience inappropriate or exaggerated anxiety in harmless situations or an uncontrollable, permanent feeling of stress.

The first step in tackling anxiety is to identify what triggers this feeling. We’ll then use hypnosis to find the cause(s) for this overreaction, dissolve them, and establish new reactions, which are then anchored as new automatisms.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

Yes. Anyone who is willing to be hypnotised can experience hypnosis.

Hypnosis can be described simply as a state of deep concentration with heightened receptivity, which most people will slip into naturally several times a day without even realising. You will have experienced it thousands of times. In fact, every time you drop off to sleep or slowly awaken, you are in a state of hypnosis, even if only for a few seconds. Or, whenever you are so immersed in an activity that you forget your surroundings, this can be likened to a state of hypnosis.

Hypnosis is not a manipulation, it is not mind control, and it is not magic, even though the results can sometimes seem magical. It is simply a tool that enables us to harness the true potential of our own minds and achieve the changes that we wish to attain.

When you work with an experienced professional, the techniques and hypnosis program are tailored to suit you. My clients report that they can easily achieve the state and use it for their continued success, long after the sessions are over.
