What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is the method of achieving “trance states.” Trance is facilitated through “hypnotic language patterns” that include guided three dimensional visualization, metaphors and stories, suggestion and other techniques.
What is “Trance?”
Trance is a natural state of focused attention, often very relaxing. Everyone has been in trance nearly every day. A perfect example everyone has experienced, is driving in the car listening to music and not remembering part of the drive. This is a typical version of “daily trance.” Some experts believe that most people are in trance at some point every day.
What can Hypnosis and Trance be used for?
Most commonly, Hypnosis and NLP are used to help people remove unwanted behavior, involuntary reactions and debilitating blocks in their consciousness that prevent them from moving forward and achieving their goals in life. Other areas are phobias, stress reduction, interpersonal issues, academic and sports performance, motivation and creativity, anxiety and even working with specific cases of PTSD.
Common Misconceptions about Hypnosis
Can I be told to do something against my will? – You do not lose your moral compass and you will not do anything against your will.
Will I fall asleep? – Generally clients are focused and awake. At the deepest level of relaxed trance clients still respond to suggestions.
What will I do under hypnosis? – Goals and outcomes are discussed in advance of sessions, and it is those outcomes that are worked for.
Can I move? – Of course, most NLP and Brief Eriksonian Hypnosis has the client at some level of physical activity. Some techniques even require the client to be moving their hands. However, there are cases where the client may wish not to move some part of their body, such as their hand, in order to understand that they are in hypnosis.
Will I remember the session? – Each person’s experience of hypnosis is unique. Some people remember everything that is said, others may let their minds drift.
How will I know if I’ve been hypnotized? – Most people innately will know that they have had a subjective helpful and relaxing experience. One key feature is that time seems “to fly.”
How is Hypnosis different from an Intuitive Counseling session with Cynthia?
Hypnosis and NLP are a specific, effective and proven set of techniques using linguistics, grammar, visualization and trance to help people remove unwanted behavior. An Intuitive Counseling session is the actual “tuning in” to a person’s larger self to help the individual see “further down the road” of life. While an Intuitive Counseling session can determine what the roadblocks are, it often takes hypnosis and NLP to remove the blocks.
At your specific request a hypnosis session can recorded for your convenience. This applies to “deep trance” sessions and not to NLP structured interventions for such issues as phobias. Recordings are done as a “gratuity.” The fee that is paid is for a block of time, not for the recording of the session. If you want to absolutely insure that you get a recording of your session, please make a point to record it yourself in the way that you can. Cynthia does not guarantee the delivery of your session recording. Again, the fee that is paid is for the time spent with Cynthia, not for the file delivery of the recorded session. All files are sent in standard Windows and Mac* compatible audio format within two to three business days or sooner if possible.
