What is Hypnotherapy | 什麼是催眠

Last post was talking about the Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy (PASOH).  I have began the Hypnotherapy 101 Certification Course, and I would like to share what I have learned.

Many people when they think about hypnosis, the first thing came to mind is the stage hypnosis for entertainment where the hypnotherapist can make you do anything on stage. Due to stage hypnotists’ showmanship, many people believe that hypnosis is a form of mind control.  Actually, all hypnosis are self-hypnosis because the willingness is the key factor – you are willing to relax, you are willing to follow the suggestions, and you are willing to achieve the desired results.  If you are not willing, you can’t be hypnotized.

Science has discovered that everything about our human condition is stored in the subconscious mind. The only way to modify or change our behavior is by changing the belief system in our subconscious. This is similar to reprogramming a computer or reset a hard-drive.

The therapeutic hypnosis (hypnotherapy) is a tool used to enable you to totally deeply relax your body and mind so that you can gain access to your subconscious. This state is like daydreaming or spacing out. Then you will be giving positive suggestions and images to replace the negative themes currently in place. Suggestions are as effective as your desire to achieve them. You are always in control.

Everyone can benefit from hypnosis in the area such as improving sleep, reducing stress, weight loss, quit smoking, controlling pain, overcome addictions, increase self-esteem, enhance creativity, improving learning or athletic performance or remembering a past experience in complete detail.  I am hoping you will give hypnotherapy a try.

How many sessions do you need, you may ask.  It depends on your situation or issues.  In average, it takes 2 to 5 sessions (each session is about 2-3 hours).

While I am writing this post, I realized that nine years ago in April was my very first experience with hypnotherapy. Who would of thought that I will become a hypnotherapist nine years later.  I think everything happened for a reason.

上一篇文章是介紹Palo Alto 的催眠學校, 我開始了基礎催眠課程, 想來跟大家分享一下所學.

許多人一聽到催眠, 第一個想到的就是舞台上的催眠秀, 催眠師可以讓你無意識地做任何行為, 因此, 許多人以為催眠是一種意念的控制.  但實際上, 所有的催眠其實都是自我催眠, 因為 “自願性” 是要能夠被催眠成功的主因 – 你必須自願放鬆, 你必須自願聽從建議, 你必須自願想要達到結果. 如果你心裡不願意被催眠, 你是無法被催眠的.

科學家發現我們人類所有的行為都收藏在淺意識裡. 要改變我們的行為或想法的唯一方式就是從淺意識下手, 有點像重寫電腦程式或更新軟體.

催眠療法是先讓你的身體和頭腦深度放鬆, 才能讓你的淺意識出現, 這個潛意識的狀態有點像你在做白日夢, 然後從潛意識裡, 以正面建議的方式, 去改寫你原有的壞習慣或負面想法, 但是效果如何, 就看被催眠者本身對改變的意願強度.

每一個人都能受惠催眠, 不論是幫助睡眠, 減低壓力, 減肥, 戒菸, 控制疼痛, 克服上癮, 增加自信, 加強創意,幫助學習或表現, 或記得過去發生過的事. 我希望你願意給催眠療法一個機會.

一般人需要看幾次催眠師呢? 這要看每個人的問題狀況, 但平均來說大概是二到五次, 每次大概是二到三小時.

我在寫這篇文章的時候, 才發現九年前的四月, 剛好是我第一次接受催眠, 沒想到九年後我踏上當催眠師的這條路, 一切都是注定好的.
