Hypnosis is an age-old practice, often shrouded in mystery and misconception, is a testament to the mind’s incredible capacity for change. People are increasingly turning to hypnosis as a tool for personal growth, seeking solace from the stresses and struggles of everyday life and solutions to deep-seated challenges.
From the boardrooms to the beaches, hypnosis is becoming a secret weapon, empowering individuals to tap into their subconscious, reshape limiting beliefs, and chart a course towards their best selves.
Whether it’s overcoming anxiety, breaking free from addictions like smoking, vaping, alcohol and sugar, or simply finding a moment of tranquility in life’s relentless pace, hypnosis offers a sanctuary for the soul.
Hypnosis is a trance-like state of heightened focus and relaxation. It’s like being so engrossed in a book or movie that you tune out the outside world. In this state, individuals are more open to suggestions, making it a powerful tool for change, and personal development.
Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic application of hypnosis. Guided by trained hypnotherapists, it’s a journey into the subconscious mind. From Hypnosis for Anxiety, Hypnosis for ADHD, Weight Loss in NZ, Hypnosis for Alcohol, to Quitting Smoking or Vaping with Hypnosis, hypnosis and hypnotherapy offers solutions to a myriad of challenges.
While hypnosis refers to the actual trance-like state, hypnotherapy is the process where therapeutic techniques, and positive suggestions are applied using hypnosis. Think of hypnosis as the tool, and the hypnotherapist as the skilled craftsman wielding it, and hypnotherapy is the trade or profession of the Hypnotherapist.
Absolutely! From helping individuals quit smoking or vaping in NZ, to aiding in sleep, the results speak for themselves. Not only are the results fantastic, hypnosis it’s about accessing and harnessing the subconscious mind’s power.
When conducted by trained and certified professionals, both hypnosis and hypnotherapy are safe. It’s a natural state of mind that many of us experience daily, like daydreaming or being engrossed in thought.
Generally, hypnosis is safe and side-effect free. However, it’s essential to work with a certified hypnotherapist to ensure the best experience. Some individuals might feel drowsy or have vivid memories resurface, but these are temporary. Most of our clients comment how they love the feeling hypnosis brings, and the positive aspects if brings including reducing stress and anxiety and promoting better sleep.
From anxiety in NZ to weight loss challenges, hypnosis and hypnotherapy offer solutions to:
Hypnosis is a potent tool. It bypasses the critical, analytical part of the mind, allowing direct communication with the subconscious. This makes reshaping behaviours, beliefs, and patterns more effective.
While self-hypnosis can be beneficial, especially for relaxation, it’s essential to learn the correct techniques from professionals. For deeper issues, working with an experienced, qualified hypnotherapist is recommended. Always check the qualifications of a hypnotherapist, as currently being an unregulated industry in NZ, anyone who has done a day or weekend course can call themselves a hypnotherapist or hypnotist. The Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy from the Integrative Hypnotherapy Institute is the gold standard in NZ and Australia, and is recognised throughout the English speaking world, accredited by the IMDHA – International Medical Dental Hypnotherapy Association or the USA.
Most people can be hypnotized. It’s less about being “gullible” and more about being open and willing to enter a relaxed state of focused attention.
The effectiveness varies based on individual needs. Whether it’s NLP, guided imagery, or suggestion therapy, the key is finding what resonates with the individual to achieve the desired result. This is where the skill of the hypnotherapist comes in. There is literally a myriad of tools and techniques the may work during hypnosis, and sometimes without.
Hypnosis isn’t effective for people experiencing mania, or psychosis. For Bi-Polar while studies have found that hypnosis can reduce symptoms of bipolar disorder and help people better manage their symptoms – this should be in consultation with their Doctor, and the patient would still be required to take their medications as prescribed by the doctor. It can’t make someone act against their will or core values. It’s a tool for positive change, not mind control.
Countless success stories, from weight loss in Auckland to quitting vaping, testify to hypnosis’s effectiveness. When combined with a genuine desire to change, the results can be transformative.
Hypnosis is a deeply relaxing experience. Some people describe it as the feeling right before falling asleep – aware, and can hear a conversation but deeply at peace. Often limbs can feel heavy due to the language used by the hypnotherapist, or simply because you are feeling deeply, and completely relaxed; or you may feel light and floating, or rocking as if you were laying in a hammock.
While individual results vary, studies have shown significant success rates, especially when combined with other therapeutic techniques.
