Hypnosis isn’t magic, or is it?
Something quite magical can occur when clients visit a hypnotherapist, though it can be misleading to talk in terms of “magic”. There is something much more basic going on that is quite easy to understand.
While hypnotherapy is immensely powerful, there are also other powerful ingredients at play in the relationship between client and hypnotherapist.
It is common for professional hypnotherapists to spend between 60 and 90-minutes per session with their client. There are few professions that spend this amount of quality time with their clients. Hypnotherapists specialise in issues that reside in the subconscious and are fuelled by imagination. They take time to consult the client before the actual therapy session. They spend a considerable amount of time dealing with similar issues with lots of clients and these issues can largely be solved entirely in the minds of the client.
In short, hypnotherapists become craftsmen in the field of helping the subconscious get things right. What many clients don’t really understand, is that it is the power of their own mind that does the work – the hypnotherapist is just a tour guide.
Lots of people benefit greatly from hypnotherapy. It has the power to completely transform their life. Some of this is not just due to the incredible power of the therapy itself, but due to the amount of time and close attention that is spent with the client. It is very much a personalised service.
There is also something else at work. Clients generally self-select the therapist that they want to work with and establish rapport with them. They are investing their hard earned cash in trying to find a solution to their issues. If that client is prudent, they will look for a therapist who has a good track record and has lots of satisfied clients. If they are bold, they will talk to different hypnotherapists and select the one that they feel has the most affinity with them. This all has the ability to affect the outcome. If a client really likes the therapist and have good rapport, then they will probably not only want therapy to be successful, but would like it to be successful for the therapist.
If a client is allocated a therapist arbitrarily then this often isn’t the case. That vital rapport or affinity can be missing. If you have received other forms of therapy, was this vital component present?
It is important that hypnotherapy retains it remarkable differences in its approach from other therapies to continue to deliver to all clients potentially life-changing and "magical" effects. It is important that hypnotherapists continue to spend this quality time with their clients and continue to deliver quite incredible value for money.
