Hypnotherapy / NLP
What is Hypnosis?
There are many fears and misunderstandings about hypnosis. The most important thing to understand is that hypnotherapy is not a stage hypnosis where the hypnotist seems to control the subject by invoking embarrassing situations that are carried out on the volunteer on stage.
Hypnotherapy is very different. It is a very gentle and natural process, like a very pleasant session of relaxation, and most clients find it very delightful.
Hypnosis actually is a very natural state that we have all experienced. Think about daydreaming or driving the car. While driving the car you can be on “autopilot” but yet entirely aware of hazards on the road.
Hypnosis is a state of mind when you experience mental and physical relaxation, in which our subconscious is able to connect with our conscious mind.
Most of the habits, feelings and emotions we want to change reside in our subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a very effective method to rewire ourselves subconsciously. And you know why? Because hypnosis itself occurs on a subconscious level.
In the state of hypnosis, you become highly responsive to positive suggestions made by a hypnotherapist, however, remain entirely in control. When you are in a relaxed state the door to positive and helpful suggestions is open. These healing suggestions are able to sink into your mind much more quickly and strongly comparing to when you are in a awaken state of mind.
That is why hypnotherapy works quicker than other types of therapy. It helps with such issues as giving up smoking, overcoming anxiety, weight-loss, phobias, fear of flying and other problems.
NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming
In short Neuro Linguistic Programming can be described as a method based on the essential connection between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interaction affects our body and behaviour (programming).
It is a very effective and rapid form of psychological therapy, helpful in dealing with such problems as phobias, stress, depression and low self-esteem and with other issues. Whatever challenge it might be, NLP can help to reprocess existing pattern of behaviour and to produce great results in a very limited time.
Richard Bandler, the founder of NLP said that it is useful in “finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives”.
NLP consists of a set of powerful techniques that enable us to improve how we think, behave and feel and as a result improve the quality of our life.
