How Hypnotherapy is Done The use of hypnotherapy enables a person to overcome issues in his life; it promotes healing or positive development. In hypnotherapy, irrational fears, phobias, and negative thoughts and suppressed emotions are overcome by reprogramming patterns of behavior within the mind. Hypnosis is not really about a hypnotist swinging a watch like a pendulum until his patient either falls into a deep sleep and is enabled to do something that is beyond his reason or belief. The reality is that you are in full control in hypnosis, just like in self-hypnosis, and the things you do are not outside of yourself. It is to facilitate your experience that a hypnotist is there for. Patients differ in their readiness and ability to success in self-hypnosis and in order to achieve meaningful results, there is a need to have several sessions. Whatever patients have learned during the formal sessions are encouraged to be practiced on their own so that its usefulness might be reinforced. There are many different applications to hypnotherapy associated with disorders that have to do why out psychological, emotional, and physical selves. The relief of pain in surgery and dentistry is realized with hypnosis. Hypnosis can help prepare a pregnant woman so that child bearing is shortened. The suffering that disabled patients, and patients facing terminal illnesses are eased with hypnosis. Using hypnosis to overcome smoking and alcoholism has proven to be effective with positive results. During hypnosis sessions, the process of altering our state of consciousness happens, and when it does one part of the brain, the analytical part is turned off, but the subconscious is awake. In the session it is the subconscious mind that is awakened and the conscious mind that control us in not.

The way of reprogramming the negative emotions of the patient is by suggesting positive ideas, concepts, and lifestyle adaptations and planting it in the subconscious mind. During this relaxed trance-like state, the body releases its conscious control and his breathing becomes slower and deeper, and the pulse rate drops and metabolic rate falls. During this time even the body’s sensation of pain is altered. Acute symptoms then become less acute.

One example is using hypnotherapy to a person who consciously want to overcome the fear of going to high places. He can try to help himself by thinking of positive things when he is in a high place so he will not be afraid. However, a strong gust of wind in this high pace can wipe out all those nice conscious thoughts because in his subconscious mind, he is in a high place which is a terrifying place to be. Thus what he need is to reprogram his subconscious mind so that his deep seated instincts and beliefs are changed.
