Hypnosis Process:
Understanding How Hypnotherapy Works
for Your Mind and Body

Hypnosis Work Process

Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, where the subconscious gateway is open to suggestion. It is a therapeutic tool used by hypnotherapists to help individuals overcome emotional, behavioral and physical challenges. This article will explore the hypnosis process, how it works, and what you can expect from a typical hypnotherapy session, from Pre-Talk, Hypnosis Induction, Talk With Your Subconscious Mind, Future Pacing to Integration.

The Complete Hypnosis Process:

1. Pre-Talk

Before the hypnosis process begins, a hypnotherapist will assess your needs and goals. This includes setting your goals, expected outcomes, success indicators, understanding your current state of mind, your motivation for making changes, and fears and resistance that you have. This information is used to create a personalized hypnosis roadmap that is tailored to your specific needs.

MIHH Hypnotherapists also use CBT Map to help you increase awareness of your current state, and the correlation between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Once you gain more ideas about what it takes to break the loop negative pattern, you and the hypnotherapist will be on the same page to make changes. 

2. Induction - Get Into the Hypnotic State

The induction process is where the hypnotherapist facilitates you to enter a state of hypnosis by going within. It can include Rapid Eye Movement, guided visualization to shift your focus on your inner world.

3. Talk With Your Subconscious Mind For Changes

Once in a hypnotic state, your brain waves are slower. You are in a heightened state of suggestibility. Your conscious mind then sits at the back seat and we can talk directly with your subconscious mind which is highly receptive.  

Hypnotherapists will help you to establish a connection with your subconscious through hypnosis and present your problem. Once you do so, we can interview this part of your mind to understand its agenda. In our experience, most people find their subconscious to be a source of wisdom, knowledge, and truly useful guidance. 

The hypnotherapist will also make specific recommendations for positive changes, by getting the subconscious mind to reprogramme and rewire the brain, you will then be able to implement the changes in a powerful and effective way.

With Clinical Hypnotherapy, professional Hypnotherapists use powerful techniques such as Regression, Inner Child, Gestalt Therapy, Parts Therapy, QHHT (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Techniques), Ask inner guidance, etc. to bring out your inner resources for changes. 

4. Future Pacing With Hypnotic Suggestions

Future Pacing is visualizing the desired future. Individuals are encouraged to imagine themselves in a situation in the future where they are able to easily access a state or apply strategy that will enable them to achieve the very best result for themselves.

Post-hypnotic suggestions are usually included to bridge the hypnotic state and normal waking state, so as to make sure the work done during trance state can be easily implemented in reality. They are often used to reinforce the changes you made during the session. 

5. Integration

The integration process is the final step of the process coming out from the hypnotic trance state. This is where you reflect on the changes with the hypnotherapist you have made and how they can be incorporated into your daily life. You may also discuss anything you notice with the hypnotherapist, to ensure that you get the most of the session and fully prepared to continue on your journey of growth and change.
