Hypnotherapy and NLP

Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)

Hypnosis has been very prevalent in the treatment of many ailments and pain relief for thousands of years. The earliest references that is given to hypnosis dates back to ancient Egypt and Greece. Indeed, ‘hypnos’ is the Greek word for sleep, though the actual state of hypnosis is very different from that of sleep.  Many cultures and traditions have used hypnosis over the years and today it is an accepted integrated therapy for all ages.

What is hypnotherapy?
In hypnosis you enter a state of trance, which is actually a very natural state for humans and nothing to be feared at all (even though stage hypnosis has give an unhealthy slant on its use and been used purely for entertainment purposes). A good example of a trance state is to take your mind back to those times when you have been on a journey in a car or train – you arrive at your destination and although you have been awake, somehow you ‘zoned’ out and time had no meaning. Once you needed to be alert again and make conscious decisions you were ‘back’ safe and sound. This is quite simply a self induced trance, a relaxed, safe and pleasant experience.

In this trance state you are connected to your subconscious – the powerhouse of emotions, feelings, beliefs and the autonomic nervous system.
