Hypnosis is a very safe process that is widely acknowledged by scientific and medical experts as a method that can positively change lives.

The hypnotic effect occurs when a person is so intensely focused that it allows the infinite potential of the unconscious mind to act beyond the perceived limitations of the conscious mind, resulting in both psychological and physical changes.

It’s important to know that Hypnosis has been used for centuries, however it was not referred to as Hypnosis back then.

In fact it wasn’t until the late 1800’s that a Scottish Neurosurgeon, James Braid, invented the word “Hypnosis” from the word ‘Hypnos’ which means sleep in greek.

James Braid is widely considered the first Hypnotherapist, and was responsible for demystifying Hypnosis and making it more accessible. Prior to Braid’s work, there was a common belief that this form of therapy worked because of Animal Magnetism and a transference of magnetic fluid.

Braid soon disproved this Animal Magnetism theory and instead discovered that there was just 4 basic rules that needed to be followed to induce a hypnotic trance.

Stage 1 – Absorb Attention

In order to absorb attention, you simply want to capture the attention and focus of your client.

This involved speaking and engaging with your client in a manner that draws them in to you, using your tonality, your physiology, and your prestige, to ensure that the client is willing to follow your instructions. Once this is achieved, you move on to stage 2.

Stage 2 – Bypass the Critical Faculty

The Critical Faculty is the part of the mind that disbelieves and uses logic and reasoning. If you’ve even watched a movie and been looking for where certain things aren’t possible – that’s you using your Critical Faculty.

All Hypnosis is Self Hypnosis so you want to help your client reduce their resistance to hypnotic trance by suspending their disbelief. This allows the client to respond to you on an unconscious level.

Once the Critical Faculty has been bypassed, the unconscious mind is more receptive to hypnotic suggestions and metaphors. In the event that a client feels threatened throughout a session, or become concerned about their welfare, the client’s Critical Faculty instantly switches back on, breaking the hypnotic trance.

Stage 3 – Activate an Unconscious Response

Activating unconscious responses is the best sign that a Hypnotherapist has successfully led the client into a hypnotic state.

An example of an unconscious response is a physiological response of that is not consciously created. There type of responses are created at the unconscious level, and happen even without the client being consciously aware of them.

Good example of these types of unconscious responses are: The client’s saliva glands being active in response to imaging themselves sucking on a lemon, or a visible shudder when the client imagines the sound of nails dragged down a chalk board.

These physical manifestations are the product of the unconscious mind responding to the thoughts and visualizations that you help the client create.

Stage 4 – Leading the Unconscious To Desired Outcome

Once a client is in a hypnotic state and the hypnotherapist has helped the client successfully achieved all three previous stages, Hypnotic Suggestions & Metaphors can be used.

Hypnotic Suggestions are typically used in the form of commands, and can be used to create immediate effect or post-hypnotic effect.

Metaphors are stories carefully constructed and delivered to help the unconscious mind become more resourceful, to create a more desirable outcome.

The Outcome

When a hypnotherapist successfully combines all four stages, both the client and the hypnotherapist are engaging in a hypnotic interaction, that results in the client become more resourceful in overcoming their problems/challenges.
