self-hypnosisAll hypnosis is self-hypnosis. There is actually no such thing as a hypnotist! With a little training, anyone can learn to guide themselves into a hypnotic state. Although there are those in the world of entertainment, and indeed some therapists, who would like you to believe otherwise, there is no mind control involved. I can assure you that were I able to control people's minds I would be starting with politicians and world leaders and not smokers and slimmers!

Self-hypnosis is something that all clients learn. As you become familiar with what trance feels like, it becomes something that you are naturally drawn towards. It is a safe, relaxed place where you can leave the world outside for a while and allow the subconscious mind to solve problems in an effortless way. Anyone who practices meditation, mindfulness or yoga will know exactly what I mean.

This is something you can do at any time of the day, for as long or short a time as you like. It might be with eyes open or eyes closed. You are in control, and it is a good feeling and a good skill to learn.

CirclesEven if you have no presenting symptom to visit a therapist with, you might want to consider a session to learn these skills. It could make a tremendous change to your quality of life, helping you control negative emotions, sleep more easily and deal with stress in a way you never thought possible.
