Imagine, you are stressed about your weight and your friend suggests you visit a hypnotherapist. For most of us, the response would be, “Why do I need a hypnotherapist and how in the world would a hypnotherapist help me in weight loss? What would a hypnotherapist do to me and what would I do meeting up with one?” All very basic questions any person is likely to come up with when given such a suggestion. Read on to know the answers.
Within each of us lies the power to heal ourselves. Within each of us lies a power that controls various systems of our body without us even being aware of its doing. Do we ever give a thought to what makes our heart beat, what lies behind our food getting digested, what causes our hormones to be released, etc.? Get introduced to your subconscious mind, the power that controls many of our body systems, the power behind our emotions, the power behind our feelings, the power that plays an important role in the decisions we take. Many of us are totally unaware of this power that we have inside us and that this power is there to help us.
Hypnotherapy helps tap this power. It is a proven tool to access the subconscious mind. It makes extensive use of the power of positive suggestion.
Hypnotherapy is defined as a form of psychotherapy that is used to create subconscious change in a patient in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviors or feelings. It is undertaken with a subject in hypnosis.
A healing art and science, hypnotherapy has evolved over time. It is a collaborative action of a hypnotherapist and his / her client working together to bring about the positive change identified by the client.
The therapist uses relaxation techniques to relax the conscious part of our mind and stimulate the subconscious part of our mind. Once stimulated, the therapist makes the suggestions as per each person’s requirements and goals. And how does this help? These positive suggestions during hypnotherapy help bring about subconscious changes to our feelings, behaviour and thoughts.

At Holistic Care and Cure, we understand your need to get comfortable with the hypnotherapist and be able to freely express yourself during the hypnotherapy sessions. This can be done during the pre-session consultation where the hypnotherapist and you would jointly discuss various points. Some of them could be
- A detailed explanation of the entire process of hypnotherapy
- Putting you at ease by answering any queries that you may have regarding the entire process
- Your personal requirements and goals
- The hypnotherapist would gather personal information ranging from your lifestyle, medical symptoms, current and previous medication, sleep pattern, other treatments that you may be following.
- Other policy details such as cost, session cancellation, number of sessions that might be needed.
Once you plan to go ahead, the actual application of hypnotherapy during the sessions would begin. Each session would begin only after you are comfortable and would end with a session summary and discuss of your progress. You can be assured of having all your doubts cleared and questions answered after every session.
I will lose control and get dominated by the hypnotherapist: This myth arises from watching stage acts. Stage hypnotists screen volunteers and select those who are co-operative. A state of hypnosis in hypnotherapy is not the same as seen on a stage. Unfortunately stage acts discourage people from seeking hypnotherapy which they can benefit from.
I will lose consciousness and have amnesia: Most people remember everything that occurs during the hypnotherapy session.
I will be under the control of the hypnotist: The hypnotherapist is there as a facilitator to guide you. You are not under the control of the hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy is something you do for yourself. It can never be forced upon you.
Hypnotherapy can be dangerous: Hypnotherapy is not brainwashing. The therapist cannot make you do something that you do not want to do. In a hypnotherapy session, you are always in control.
