I'm Afraid of Hypnosis But I Don't Know Why
Iʹm Afraid of Hypnosis but I Donʹt Know Why reveals the truth about hypnotherapy and puts forward a clear and constructive message about the power of interactive hypnotherapy as a means of overcoming psychological challenges and enhancing your life. First and foremost, the book offers guidance and support to all those readers who are considering embarking on a course of hypnotherapy and who are seeking a firmer grasp of what is involved. It is also meant to inform those, whose role it is to advise people about possible forms of therapy. I have found that clients tend to make a lot of enquiries and talk to a lot of people before choosing to follow through with this surprisingly enjoyable experience. Iʹm Afraid of Hypnosis but I Donʹt Know Why provides answers to commonly asked questions that people pose both before and after a one-to-one session of hypnotherapy.
Regardless of whether you are seeking information about hypnotherapy for yourself or on behalf of someone else ― or are just curious ― the basic ideas and information are of considerable importance to understanding the whole process of changing your mind for the better. You will discover that you can get help for a problem that you may have been putting up with for years. And you will get a clearer idea of what actually happens during a course of hypnotherapy sessions, and gain more insight into the role of the hypnotherapist. If you decide to choose hypnotherapy, this information will enable you to arrive at your session with an informed understanding of what hypnosis is and what your therapeutic hypnosis will be like. Rest assured that you are not at risk of acting like a fool!
Iʹm Afraid of Hypnosis but I Donʹt Know Why is a book about interactive hypnotherapy ― not the definitive book about it. I am well aware that fellow practitioners will have different perspectives although I hope they will nevertheless find much that is of interest in it. They will of course have their own views on interactive hypnotherapy and will bring to the subject their own interests, background, perceptions and skills. Please be aware that your hypnotherapist ― by listening to and trusting her own intuition ― may introduce other steps and may design your session in a different way. Many different sequences of steps can take you to where you want to be. The interactive and therapeutic dance between both client and therapist is always in motion.
Iʹm Afraid of Hypnosis but I Donʹt Know Why also addresses the needs and interests of those in training, as well as practising therapists and stress-management consultants. Indeed, all those who practise techniques of direct suggestion as part of their therapeutic repertoire or who use relaxation and visualisation exercises may find here techniques that will help them. They may find pointers for moving towards a more interactive approach.
Here are the words of a client reflecting on his experience of hypnosis by direct suggestion: ʺI sat and listened for twenty minutes to a prepared script. It didnʹt dent the surface. Nice words, but they went over the top. I didnʹt feel them inside me. I came away, and afterwards felt no difference.ʺ Contrast that with the same clientʹs experience of interactive hypnotherapy: ʺI feel much more confident about it! There is nothing pushy about it. Itʹs a bit of a wonderment. It gives me so much food for thought and that in itself is good. The words stay there and you can feed on them.ʺ
This book blows away the miasma of myths that surround hypnotherapy ― a complementary therapy that is ripe for de-mystification and full respectability. Iʹm Afraid of Hypnosis but I Donʹt Know Why invites you to join the increasing number of people who come to hypnosis because they want something that is ʺpositive, constructive and specific.ʺ
