Participants in entertainment and stage hypnosis shows are fully aware that they will be asked to act in silly ways, and they implicitly agree to this at some level of their mind.
Hypnotherapy is simply process of using hypnosis to ‘unlock’ or access unconscious mind, and to bring about therapeutic changes by modifying deeply-held assumptions, fears and misconceptions within it.
There are two forms of hypnotherapy:
· Suggestion Hypnotherapy or Clinical Hypnotherapy
The hypnotherapist guides client into a relaxed state and enlists power of client’s own imagination using a wide range of techniques from story-telling, metaphor or symbolism to use of direct suggestions for beneficial change.
· Analytical Hypnotherapy or Hypnoanalysis
This therapy is rather more intense and requires several sessions. It involves an in-depth analysis of individual’s inner fears, blocked and unresolved feelings and repressed memories and is carried out in a quiet and gentle way allowing memories and emotion to flow and release anger, fear and hurt of past.
