In essence, it relates to the conditions of a person’s state of mind, and can even be used to relieve pain.

How? When a person enters, or believes they have entered, a state of trance, they become is more receptive to suggestion and other therapy.
The hypnotherapist helps the person to concentrate on their desired goal.

Freud and Erickson

Freud used the principles of conscious, unconscious, dream utilisation and refinement of attention as themes throughout his work. He studied hypnosis.

Milton H. Erickson, M.D. is considered one of the most successful modern hypnotherapists.
He has written many books, journals, and articles, on the subject, and his accomplishments are well documented.

During the 1970s, Erickson saw unprecedented success treating his medical patients with hypnotic procedures.

At Know Your Mind we use Ericksonian hypnotherapy extensively.

The phenomenal effectiveness of e hypnosis techniques has since led to the development of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and sleight of mouth, which is used for covert persuasion in sales, advertising, political discourse and entertainment.

Hypnotherapy can help you:

  • Do you feel stuck in one state?
  • Is your career, business or relationship on hold, or reached an impasse?
  • Do you seem to be snappy, irritable and always tired?
  • Are your relationships draining you?
  • Do your sales results need improving?
  • Does your confidence need a boost?
  • Is stress affecting your life?
  • Has your life become flat, dull and a grinding routine?
  • Are you tired too often, feel burned out and have no idea why?
  • Has your creativity dried up?
  • Does it seem like a long time since you experienced something new?
  • Have you lost that “fizz” that made your life, work, and relationships fun?
  • Do you want to live a happier, healthier, wealthier life?

Hypnotherapy Techniques also include:

AGE REGRESSION – by recalling a previous state a person can increase their strength, confidence and regain the qualities they once had.

PAST EXPERIENCE – by recalling a past experience a person can go “into trance” easily and effortlessly.
For example; if asked “have you ever been in trance before?” a person can quickly adopt a trance state without having to induce a new state.

GUIDED IMAGERY – a method by which the subject is given a new relaxing and beneficial experience.

PARTS INTEGRATION – a method used to identify conflicting “nervous system parts” that are damaging the overall well-being of a client.
For example, a person on the one hand may want to succeed but another part of his psychology may feel he doesn’t deserve success.
Another example is how to move beyond something like: “I want this BUT I’m not sure”, “I can’t decide between these two things”.
We all need to feel a sense of wholeness and this is accomplished by integrating the parts.

REPETITION – the more an idea is repeated the more likely it is to be accepted and acted upon by a person.

DIRECT SUGGESTION – suggesting directly – “You feel safe and secure”.

INDIRECT SUGGESTION – using subtle techniques to cause effect.

MENTAL STATE – people are more receptive while relaxed, sleeping, or in a trance.

POST HYPNOTIC SUGGESTION – a suggestion that will be carried out after the trance has ended. “When you re-awaken you will feel refreshed and happy”.

VISUALISATION – imagining a desired outcome to make it more likely to happen.
