“You are getting sleepy, you are getting sleepy and when you wake up you are going to bark like a dog every time you hear the word peaches”
When I discuss my Master Practitioner training via The Life Coaching College a few people have metaphorically had kittens when I mention Conscious Hypnosis. All though most are curious and open to it, that few with a strong response were behaving as if I am going to use some kind of superpower to exploit them in a vulnerable position.
“I Missa Williams vow to use my training for the growth of my peers, family and client base.”
Conscious Hypnosis, a coaching tool? Many years before I joined TLCC I had assumed Conscious Hypnosis was another modality in the medical profession. This is due to the incredible results people all over the world have had with weight loss and becoming a non-smoker.
Hypnosis, what is it, more importantly how does it work?
Hypnosis, used in therapy to recover suppressed memories or to allow modification of behaviour. Examples of modifying behaviour would be weight loss, releasing habits and in the paediatric space is can be used for ailments such as bed-wetting. Hypnosis is also known for phobia busting.
It works by altering the state of consciousness in a way that the analytical Left Hand Side of the brain is “turned off” allowing the Right Hand Side to be more alert. Once the RHS is more receptive, the unconscious mind will respond to the specialist techniques performed by the hypnotists.
There are a fair few common misconceptions surrounding hypnosis… before we move any further let us dispel a couple of the big myths!
- Your morals and ethics remain intact. During your Conscious Hypnosis Sessions, exploitation is not something that is possible as with any situation where you have an opportunity to create change you can either accept or reject suggestions.
- You do not actually fall asleep! You will however be very relaxed during your session.
- This one is accurate, not everyone can be hypnotised… Look I know, How very unfortunate for the small percentage of people who cannot experience this wonderful technique!
The reason practitioners use Hypnosis is so they can align your unconscious and conscious thinking which in-turn eliminates internal and mental conflicts, which are at the core of undesired behaviours.
