What is hypnosis?
Put simply hypnosis and its utilisation is a way of using our natural ability to shift into a slightly altered state of consciousness, relaxation and mental attention to then begin to make positive changes.
Utilising hypnosis opens the doors to the unconscious mind, allowing positive suggestions to be uncritically accepted and therefore making the process of change particularly effective and long-lasting.
What is it like to be in trance?
When hypnotized will I be in control?
A question I’m frequently asked is ‘will I be in control? to which the answer is absolutely YES!
What does being hypnotized feel like?
Amongst other things being in trance enables a state of profound relaxation, both physically and mentally, which feels wonderful!
All hypnosis is essentially self-hypnosis and the process of hypnotic intervention, or hypnotherapy, is one where the hypnotherapist acts purely as a facilitator. Using the tools of hypnosis is essentially acting as a guide, the experience of being hypnotised is entirely owned by the person in trance.
If at any stage for any reason someone in a trance state wishes the experience to end they can simply open their eyes, or deepen the experience if they wish, they are entirely in control.
Is hypnosis recognised and does it work?
Scientific studies conducted by the British Medical Association (BMA), American Psychological Association (APA), American Medical Association (AMA) and many others have concluded that hypnosis works.
- In 1955 the BMA approved hypnosis as a recognised form of medical practice.
- In 1958 the APA incorporated hypnosis as a speciality, forming a certifying board of examiners in both clinical and experimental hypnosis.
- In 1959 the AMA recognised the use of hypnosis as an effective approach to working with medical and psychological issues.

How effective is hypnosis?
The tools of modern hypnosis offer remarkable success rates.
Psychotherapy magazine (Volume 7, Number 1) published a review by Alfred A Barrios, PhD which profiled various therapeutic approaches and listed them in order of efficacy quoted below.
- Hypnosis – 93% recovery rate after six sessions (approx 1 1/2 months @ 1 session / week)
- Behaviour therapy – 72% after 22 sessions (approx 6 months @ 1 session / week)
- Psychotherapy – 38% recovery after 600 sessions (approx 11 1/2 years at 1 session / week\
All of these tools, of course, have a place in the therapeutic toolkit, but as has been shown hypnosis offers a quick and effective method for dealing with a wide range of issues.
One extremely descriptive phrase for clinical hypnosis is ‘solution focussed brief therapy’.
