An introduction to electroencephalography (EEG) and hypnotherapy. What is it and what does the use of EEG tell us about what happens to the brain during trance?
EEG is a method of measuring brainwave activity. During the trance sessions, we sometimes wonder if our customer is ‘asleep’ or just ‘resting’ and whether our language patterns are having any demonstrable effect on the brain. This workshop will:
- Demonstrate how we can measure brainwaves and collect EEG data.
- We will learn how to interpret the EEG output.
- We will learn how to make sense of what we can see in terms of the specific solution-focused therapy that we deliver.
By using EEG we can demonstrate that during trance, our customers’ brains are actively engaged in visualising the language patterns they are hearing, and using the parts of their brains associated with information processing and decision-making. During the workshop you will be provided with samples of the evidence base that backs up the effectiveness of our technique in an accessible style to use in your clinics.
