What should one expect on a visit to a practitioner of hypnotherapy?
Typically, your first session will begin with a great deal of talking. A good therapist will ask you questions to get some insight into what motivates you and what your beliefs and expectations might be. When that's done, you'll be taught some type of "induction technique." This is the use of a focal point, either internal or external, to concentrate your attention (Hollywood's version is the swinging pendant). The technique often used is to have you close your eyes while sitting upright in a chair, pressing your thumb and forefinger together, holding your breath for a count of five, then releasing your breath and fingers while letting your mind drift, developing pictures and images to accompany the words you hear him speaking. Some 20 percent of the population may go into trance very easily, while an equal percentage show great resistance. The therapist may need to work extensively with the latter group to develop trust that allows them to drop their psychological defenses.
Once you're in a state of trance (but still fully aware of where you are and what you're doing), the therapist offers suggestions specifically geared to the goal of the therapy. For example, he may suggest that a person with irritable bowel syndrome picture the wave-like motions of her digestive system slowing down and becoming smoother, or a client who wants to stop smoking imagine everyday life without using tobacco. Your unconscious mind can then transmit these thoughts and images throughout your mind and body, setting the healing process in motion.
A typical course of hypnotherapy may require from one to five visits (lasting 45 minutes to an hour each), depending on the individual's response to hypnosis, the amount of therapy involved, and response to treatment. The therapist's role is to teach you how to access the trance state on your own. Once you've learned how to do this, you can start using self-hypnosis on a regular basis to maximize your healing potential.
