Breaking Down The Myths Of Hypnotherapy
Not everyone wants to take part in ‘traditional’ treatments for mental health issues. Whether you’re concerned about the risks of medications, or if you’re not getting any relief with your current treatment, it may be time to try hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is at times misunderstood, so we’re here to break down some common myths and misperceptions.
Myth: Only Certain People Can Be Hypnotised
It’s a common belief that only certain people can be hypnotised and that there are people who are more susceptible to hypnosis treatment. Although we are all different, almost everyone can benefit in some way from clinical hypnosis. Even better is the fact that hypnotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of mental health issues without the need for pharmaceuticals. Hypnotherapy is natural, whilst medications are made in a laboratory.
Myth: You Lose Free Will
That’s far from true. During hypnotherapy your therapist will guide you but you will always remain true to yourself. You retain control of your thoughts and actions, and will remain true to your beliefs and values if you wish, and you always have the choice to come out of the hypnosis state whenever you want. A hypnotherapist is there to lead you to where you wish to be, mentally and physically. Although after therapy, clients will feel empowered, or released, or in control as is appropriate, the results of the therapy also depend on the client’s actions. Hypnotherapy is not mind control, but an enhancement of the client’s inner capabilities.
Myth: You Reveal Things You Don’t Want To
Similar to maintaining your free will during the hypnotherapy session, you won’t suddenly begin spilling your deepest darkest secrets. While it is true that you might learn something about yourself that you never knew, or that you may uncover memories that you didn’t know you had, you won’t start revealing information about yourself against your will. Hypnotherapy can help uncover information in your subconscious mind, but you will choose whether you reveal that information.
Myth: Hypnotherapy Doesn’t Work
Some people still have the mistaken belief that hypnotherapy doesn’t work. Like all things, there are variables, such as your willingness to change, and the skills and experience of the therapist. Even the environment that you are exposed to before and after treatment, i.e. negative people, will play a part in results.
