WHAT HYPNOSIS IS AND HOW IT WORKS:
Hypnosis is a state or condition in
which the subject becomes highly responsive to
suggestions. The Hypnotized individual seems to follow
instructions in an uncritical, automatic fashion and
attends closely only to those aspects of the environment
made relevant by the Hypnotist. If the subject is highly
responsive, he or she hears, sees, feels, smells and
tastes in accordance with the suggestions given, even if
these may be in direct contradiction to the actual
stimuli that impinge upon the subject. Furthermore,
memory and awareness of the self can be altered by
suggestions. All of these may be extended post
hypnotically into the individual's subsequent waking
activity. It is as if suggestions given during hypnosis
come to define the individual's perception of the real
world. In this case, the phenomenon has been described
as "believed - in fantasy".
A Hypnotic state is a state in which the conscious mind
is so preoccupied or confused, that a thought created by
a statement or by experience can bypass the critical
factor and pass powerfully into the subconscious mind.
If not removed by subsequent conscious logic, the
thought will remain as an ongoing and powerful force.
Hypnosis produces an opportunity to create communication
between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind,
which produces positive results.
Under Hypnosis, the subject would never do anything that
is harmful to them nor would they do anything that they
would not normally do in an awaken state. The subject,
although extremely deep in relaxation, is fully aware of
what he or she is doing and will remember the process.
Hypnosis in not an "Alternative Approach", but
is considered "Complementary" to any other
practice. This means that Hypnosis can enhance healing
the Mind, Body and Spirit and works well with other
methods of healing as well as speed up the process. It
enhances as it works side by side in the Medical, Dental
and Therapeutic fields as well. We produce our own
health problems. Rather than covering up an issue or
issues, getting to the core of the problem is the key to
successfully diminishing, if not completely deleting the
symptoms. Hypnosis opens the door to the essence of what
had originally caused the problems, and through
suggestion, it erases them all together.

does it come from?
Modern psychological hypnosis was first developed in
1843 by the Scottish physician James Braid. However, it
has its origins in an earlier form of trance healing
called 'Mesmerism', after the famous Eighteenth century
Austrian Franz Anton Mesmer.

it officially recognised?
• ‘Hypnotism’ is legally acknowledged and defined
by the Hypnotism
Act 1952, in the UK Book of Statutes.
In their 1892 Hypnotism Report, the British Medical Association
(BMA) officially recognise the hypnotic trance: ‘The
Committee, having completed such investigation of
hypnotism as time permitted, have to report that they
have satisfied themselves of the
genuineness of the hypnotic state.’ The
Committee also acknowledged that ‘as a therapeutic
agent hypnotism is frequently
effective in relieving pain, procuring sleep,
and alleviating many functional ailments’ (BMA, 1892).
In 1955 a follow-up report was commissioned which
endorsed the findings of the original 1892 Committee,
and added the conclusions that ‘hypnotism is of value
and may be the
treatment of choice in some cases of so-called
psycho-somatic disorder and psychoneurosis. It may also
be of value for revealing unrecognised motives and
conflicts in such conditions. As a treatment, in the
opinion of the Subcommittee it has proved its ability to
remove symptoms and to alter morbid habits of thought
and behaviour. […] In addition to the treatment of
psychiatric disabilities, there is a place for hypnotism
in the production of anaesthesia or analgesia for
surgical and dental operations, and in suitable subjects
it is an effective method of relieving pain in
childbirth without altering the normal course of labour.’

about hypnosis. In clinical hypnotherapy clients are never
asked to do anything embarrassing or against their will,
the Clinical Hypnotherapist has an ethical code to use
hypnotic state only for healing.
