Your Guide To Hypnosis

Your Guide To Hypnosis

There are many stories about hypnosis and hypnotherapy being dangerous, turning people into chickens, people not being able to wake up, and unscrupulous hypnotists exploiting their ‘vulnerable’ patients. However there are many people who are adamant that it has helped change their lives, some from Dudley, Tipton, Wolverhampton and much further afield – I know of for sure. I have helped them succeed in their goals. Millions of people swear that it has helped them with many issues such as weight loss, quitting smoking, other addictions, confidence, phobias, stress, success, IBS, and many more issues.

Many people are missing out on this powerful, yet very safe therapeutic tool because they are too afraid to use it. I hope to dispel these fears by answering these common questions about hypnotherapy right here and now!.

Can I be hypnotised? Most people can go into a hypnotic trance. The only types of people that cannot be hypnotised are … 1. Those suffering from psychosis or a thought disorder 2. A person with a low IQ 3. A person who does not want to be hypnotised. It is very easy to resist hypnosis if you want to.
What is a hypnotic trance? It is a normal and natural state that most of us experience several times a day without even knowing it. It commonly happens when people are driving. Have you ever driven somewhere and not really remembered the journey?, I have just missed my junction. It also often occurs when reading a book or watching TV. Sometimes you can be so absorbed in the book or TV programme that you are not consciously aware that someone is talking to you, or even where you are sat. Hypnosis […]

Hypnosis overrides your brain

Hypnosis overrides your brain

The air is spiked with the scent of antiseptic and the steady, punctuating beep of a heart monitor.

The patient is in a deep sleep; the gastric band operation she hopes will transform her life is due to commence.

But Natalie Couldwell, a size 22 mum of two whose weight has plagued her since early childhood, is lying fully-clad on a couch in a tiny meeting room at Hillsbrough Leisure Centre.

There’s the faint hum of conversation from the coffee shop next door. Every now and then, a tannoy call for a gym staff member rings out.

And the “surgeon” on whom Natalie is nailing her hopes has not a single medicinal qualification.

Alison Tynan is a qualified clinical hypnotherapist; she is hypnotising Natalie into believing she is undergoing a gastric band operation, the drastic weightloss surgery which has soared in popularity, despite its risks and costs of up to 6,000 for non NHS patients.

A real gastric band operation reduces the size of an obese patient’s stomach with an adjustable band so only small meals can be eaten; usually dramatic weightloss follows.

Natalie’s stomach will be untouched. But hypnosis will hopefully convince her mind that a band is in place – and be enough to stop her from binging on her beloved chips, bread, crisps and big family meals.

Moments earlier I had watched the Stocksbridge supermarket worker close her eyes and fall under Alison’s hypnotic spell.

Rhythmically and repetitively, she talked of steps Natalie was encouraged to slowly descend, […]

Train your mind to keep you calm

Train your mind to keep you calm

I’m sceptical about the benefits of old-fashioned hypnotism but one area that’s exciting is the use of hypnotherapy to help people find inner control over something that makes them anxious.

Self-hypnosis is proving to be an effective way for people to gain power in situations where they would otherwise feel helpless.

Two great techniques that have really taken off recently are hypnobirthing, which helps women feel in control and relaxed during childbirth, and hypnodieting which help compulsive eaters take charge of their diet and lose weight.

The idea of a virtual gastric band – which saves overweight people needing the real op – is especially intriguing and I approve of anything that reduces the number of people having this drastic surgery.

The technique is also branching out to treat other problems including phobias and Tourette’s syndrome.

Hypnotherapy v hypnosis

When we think of hypnosis, what comes to mind for most of us is the stereotypical image of a stage hypnotist waving a watch, saying: “You’re feeling very sleepy,” before making you cluck like a chicken.

That’s the type of hypnosis in which you’re put into a deep trance and become under someone else’s control.

Deep-trance hypnosis has its uses. I once witnessed an obstetrician give a woman an anaesthetic-free caesarean section while she was hypnotised – a technique known as hypnoanaesthia. But, in my opinion, it is not as useful a technique as hypnotherapy, which is all about

self-empowerment and taking charge of your own thoughts and behaviours rather than handing over control to someone else.

Mind over matter

This newer form of hypnotherapy involves a practitioner teaching you how to get into a relaxed state of mind, in which you […]

Overweight teacher loses 8 STONE after being hypnotised into believing she had a gastric band

Weight had spiralled to 21 stone after diets failed

An overweight primary school teacher has lost almost eight stone after she was hypnotised into believing doctors had fitted her with a gastric band.

Kim Robinshaw, 31, whose weight had spiralled to 21 stone was sent into a trance by a slimming expert after other dieting attempts failed to work.

When she woke up Kim believed she had undergone surgery to have the band fitted and she started shedding the pounds.

She dropped from a size 24 to a svelte 14-16 in nine months due to her ‘virtual gastric band’.

Kim, of Thornton Cleveleys, Lancashire, said: ‘I think the results are incredible, I’ve still got a bit more weight to lose, but I just can’t get over it.

‘I didn’t tell anyone at first about the hypnotherapy. My mum and dad were supportive, so they were the only ones that knew. I didn’t want to say it was going to work.

‘It was coming up to Christmas that colleagues at work started to notice and I started to tell people and I think about ten of them have already booked to see […]
