Many people wonder what hypnosis is all about, including how they will feel during or after a hypnotherapy session. Before you start, your therapist will ask questions on your goals and past history. This helps the hypnotherapist understand your personality and needs to decide on the best method to use during your session.
Depending on the type of problem you’re addressing, your session can be a one-time visit or over a few sessions. Typically, treatments are resolved in a significantly shorter time than through traditional methods, like self-help or counselling. It can also be used in conjunction with another method and works best when all your care providers are working together to help you reach your goal.
Your hypnotherapist will help you feel at ease during your session. The session includes guiding you into a trance, where your mind and body can completely relax and let go of any tension. Clients report feeling calm, light, focused, sleepy, and pain-free.
You are not asleep during the session. You hear your hypnotherapist’s voice and remember what is being said. Some people feel they are drowsy or can’t remember every word being said, but it’s important to understand that you will not be unconscious, asleep, or manipulated in any way. You are focused and aware of what’s going on.
You could also feel muscle ticks as your body starts to relax. You could feel emotional as you work through issues. These are normal reactions, and the therapist will ensure that you are comfortable both emotionally and physically as much as possible.
Some people say that they felt nothing special during their session. This is also a normal response. Hypnosis is a natural state, such as when you’re engrossed in a television show that you don’t hear noises around you. You are not distracted by environmental noise, as you’re in a super-concentrated state.
After a session, most people feel a reduction or elimination of body pains. They have a renewed sense of direction or purpose. Most clients report feelings of happiness, calm, and relaxation. Reaching your goal is within your power, and this comes into greater clarity after your session.
Since some issues take more than one session, your therapist may ask you to complete in-between session assignments, like reading a particular handout or completing a task. If you have more than one appointment, it’s best to schedule them at regular intervals, like once a week. With shorter periods in between, you’ll be able to overcome obstacles and have greater success in your overall goal.
Your hypnotherapist is your partner in success. If you have any questions about overcoming a problem or about a particular feeling, feel free to contact them. Make sure you understand the best way to reach the therapist, such as by telephone or email.
