What is Hypnosis?

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis happens when your everyday awake aware state is paced into an alternative state in which the critical facility is relaxed.
Your critical facility is the gatekeeper which tests everything when you are awake. If I tell you that there is a city in the USA called Las Vegas, you nod your head, Yes! If I tell you that 4 plus 4 is 19, No! This is the critical (which means judging) facility at work.

Hypnosis happens when this state is guided by another; it may be a therapist or someone else.
There is an experience called self-hypnosis, which is basically different. I will discuss this elsewhere later.

There are a number of different ways of being hypnotised, and processes once you are hypnotised. Some I use in video therapy, others face-to-face. I work with people face-to-face in Healesville, Victoria, Australia, where I live. Much of my work is by video Google Hangouts or Skype.

The sessions consist of Discovery, where we share some information about the problem, and Therapy when a person is placed in trance and treated. Depending on the problem this may involve one to three sessions.

The am of the sessions is create a successful and satisfying outcome. I want to get you a lot better!

You may have questions.
Will I make noises like a chicken?
No. This is medical hypnosis. It is much like a guided daydream.
Can I be made to do something I don't want to do? No, your critical facility still protects you; you won't go against your real beliefs.
Will I remember the session? Probably much of it, just as you remember parts of a long conversation. Some people don't. It works just the same.
Will I tell you all my secrets? No, unless you want to. We just deal with the problems you mention and their background. It helps me to have this information to guide the hypnosis. I can treat you without the information or knowing about some state or incident (which just gets called "the incident" if necessary, because your unconscious mind (sometimes called subconscious) does the work. (However, there is process called Regression which I do not use often. This works with past memories where you will tell me about your early life in some detail. If this is asked for on video  you will need another adult with you - who will hear what you say, because rarely a person is surprised by very painful memories.)
Age range? Usually 10 years up. I do some ADHD work with younger children. All work with children under 16 years must have a parent present for the session.
How effective is it? Very. Your mind/brain is very complex and some people change faster than others. Like any medical process there are no guarantees. I commit to doing my best for you;  assume that you will do the same.
You may have heard of people ho have been to a hypnotherapist and nothing happened. Well, I suppose it depends on the skill of the hypnotist and some, sadly, don't have much. I have been doing this successfully for a long time.




Walk out at the end of a session as a non-smoker.

We do it all at once
because it is more effective to combine the preparation and the RealChange Hypnosis in one session. For the few that need it, there is an additional session without charge (that's available because about one person in twenty has other problems linked to smoking). So you can be confident that it will work for you!

It works because you have decided to become a non-smoker and in the special state of hypnosis your brain can quickly reprogram 
itself to make your decision work.

What's hypnosis like?

Being "under hypnosis" feels different from person to person. The important thing is not how you feel. The important thing is - the change. In hypnosis your "inner mind" can make changes to give you the ability to think, feel and act as a non-smoker.

Hypnosis is a little different from every-day, of course, but a wonderful relaxing experience. You won't put on weight. You take confident control of your life.People tend to think that they are aware all the time. Any magician can prove that wrong. We can become totally involved in a TV program as if it is actually happening. It all depends on where you are focused. Hypnosis is just using a different focus that an expert hypnotist manages for you. So that you  make the change that you want.

Why choose RealChange Hypnosis?

If you haven't stopped smoking permanently by other means, you may need more than a simple hypnosis session to have you really stop.

RealChange Hypnosis gives you a way of overcoming the reason you haven't been able to give it up, and maker a fresh start. RealChange Hypnosis is based on advanced personal change methods used in peak sports and business training, as well as established therapeutic processes.

More about hypnosis

Hypnosis is widely used in medicine, therapy, psychology and psychiatry.

Hypnosis is a bit like sleep. If someone comes into the room and looks at you, they may say you are asleep. But you are not. You are aware. Hypnosis is just a trance state guided by someone else. We all go into trance states or altered states every day. You will be in a light trance about every twenty minutes out of ninety. You may be engrossed in a work or a hobby, daydreaming, engaged by the TV. and so on.  That is a state that you know about.

In addition hypnotists use processes of the unconscious mind, such as your early childhood ability to totally be in pretence, and your ability to dream.A common altered state used in therapy is the "learning trance" or a related "peripheral vision awareness". This latter is used in advance driving, speed-reading, flying, etc, and work with learning difficulties, to name a few

.There are other altered states - deeper levels of hypnosis, that you will have heard of or experienced. They can be used for instance in childbirth, or pain control.

The Worries

Some people have worries about hypnosis because of the antics of people "under the control" of stage Hypnotists, or because they believe that hypnotists can make them reveal secrets or do something bad.

1] Stage Hypnosis.If you have been at a stage show or watched TV where there was a hypnotist you will have observed :People volunteer to go onto the stage knowing what is coming to have fun, so they are already prepared to show off on stage.The hypnotist carries out suggestibility tests looking for [a] people who are very suggestible and will do what they are told, and who are also [b] people who will be good performers on stage for the audience.From the many that offer he selects eight to a dozen.

2] Your secrets.You won't tell the hypnotist anything you don't want him to know. In long term therapy you will come to trust the hypnotherapist, as you would any therapist, and reveal details of your past that may help your therapy.Note that statements revealed under hypnosis are not evidence, they are indications of your beliefs. And they are confidential.All of us have gaps in memory.

Under hypnosis and unconsciously we "fill in the gaps" and invent material to make a memory cohesive. Any police hypnotist will bear this out! The most notorious examples are so called "recovered memories" of sexual abuse. There have been cases of people who were distressed and under hypnosis with a therapist looking for causes of their depression, who have put together a number of childhood memories and feelings, and decided that they were abused. Now they might have been, so every statement needs to be taken seriously. But the unconscious may have put together two and two and made eleven! The therapist should take the clients statements and treat them as material for therapy. If the matter is reported to police, they have to look for evidence - sometimes circumstantial, because the recovered memories are statements about the clients feelings and not evidence.

While talking about police, and having said all that, we often can remember more under hypnosis and access parts of our memory that our conscious and sub-conscious mind have pushed out of awareness because they seemed unimportant. So people can sometimes remember car number plates and other material under hypnosis - again, these become working clues, not evidence.

3] Can I be made to do something bad?

The short answer is no, the longer answer is - by whose standards? If you are a normal citizen, I can't hypnotise you into robbing a bank. On the other hand, if you like robbing banks, I probably could. If I and other hypnotists could just persuade other people to give us all their money, some of us no doubt would, and become very rich. But, as far as I know, this hasn't happened. And people who are highly suggestible and gullible are cleaned up by ordinary cons - there's no need for hypnosis!

4] Can I be made to forget things?Yes, at three levels. First, we often use temporary "forgetting" in hypnotising. It helps people to relax deeply and lasts many minutes. Second, people can he given instruction to forget something for a while [amnesia]. This lasts for a fairly short period set by the hypnotist. In therapy it is mostly used for deepening trance.Third, people can be set up to forget something permanently. This forgetting only happens after repeated sessions of hypnosis and might relate  to, say, the trauma of repeated abuse. Forgetting in everyday life is normal - and I am fairly good at it!  As far as we know, you can't be made to permanently forget something that troubles you and that you want to remember. Back to our bank example, if I hypnotised you and ordered you to give me all your money and forget that you had done that, at some stage you would remember and pay me a visit!

If you have concerns about hypnosis, talk to your therapist when you meet him.
