How Hypnosis Can Help You

What is hypnotherapy?

Many people think that hypnosis is like what you see in movies and TV shows and on stage.  It appears as if someone can magically take control of your mind in order to make you do things against your will. 
In reality, hypnosis is a natural, normal state of mind, one that you've experienced whether you're aware of it or not.  Being in hypnosis means that you're in your alpha brainwave state.  Wide awake, you're in your beta brainwave state.  Sound asleep, you're in the delta state.

Guided Imagery

Guided Imagery is a technique most hypnotherapists will use during the course of a session because it's a remarkably effective means of helping you to accomplish your goals.  While it's more likely to be effective if you do it in the context of a hypnotherapy session, you can also use it on your own if there's a change you'd like to bring into your life.
Choose a time when you can be free of distractions, and turn off or silence all your devices.  The length of time doesn't matter.


Everybody dreams every night, although not everyone remembers them. Writing on a piece of paper, "I remember to remember my dreams" and setting it where you'll see it as you fall asleep and first thing when you wake up will help you to remember. It may not work immediately, but you'll soon find that, more and more often, you do remember your dreams, and you're able to use them to make positive changes in your life.

We can make some generalizations about the meanings of certain common dream occurrences, although, of course, we can't say for sure that they mean any given thing to all people.

Hypnosis and Empowerment

Unfortunately, your conscious mind and your unconscious mind are not always in agreement with each other.  Your unconscious mind was formed when you were a kid, probably before the age of 8, and it likes what's familiar and known.  It also comprises 88% of your entire mind.  But your decisions to change are made in your conscious mind, where you're reasonable and logical. 

You may decide, for instance, that you want to lose weight, quit smoking, or perform your job better.

Can I Get Stuck In Hypnosis?

The short answer is no. 
Any qualified hypnotherapist will conclude by counting you out of the hypnotic state several times and encouraging you to stay in the office for a minute or so afterward to make sure you're fully alert and aware.  Even if that somehow doesn't happen, you can always count yourself up by saying "One, two, three, four, five -- eyes open, wide awake."  In fact, if you're having a day when you're feeling especially distracted by one thing while wanting to focus on something else, speaking that phrase aloud is remarkably effective.

Did you know you can use hypnosis for just about any kind of vocational and avocational self-improvement?  Well, you can.  The Hypnosis Motivation Institute published a list of 146 ways hypnotherapy might help you, and there are still so many more!  Here's just a small sample of that list:
