You made an appointment with a certified hypnotherapist. Now what?
Here are a few tips for you to maximize your investment in yourself.
Identify your Goals
Identifying your goals brings you closer to the solution you are seeking.
The need to determine your goals sounds obvious but from our experience a majority of the people who consult us set the wrong goals. In order to reap the maximum benefits from your hypnosis session you need to clarify your goals. Because you are seeing a hypnotherapist in order to adopt favorable behaviours, it is your responsibility to decide where you want to go. The clearer your goals, the more you benefit from the hypnosis treatment.
Get Ready to Relax
One easy way to enter the focused state of awareness is through relaxation. It is not the only one because you can be in hypnosis and not be relaxed. Your hypnotherapist will guide you in the process of accessing that state.
Allocate Enough Time for the Session
Avoid scheduling an important call or meeting just after the session because it might cause stress. You can achieve a state of focused awareness faster if you leave all worries outside.
Wear Comfortable Clothes
Comfortable clothing helps you relax more easily. Make every minute count. The more comfortable you feel, the more benefits you will achieve.
Avoid Caffeine and Nicotine
Caffeine and nicotine (found in tobacco) are stimulants. By avoiding them, you can slide into a wonderful state of relaxation much quicker. As a result, the session is more efficient.
Sleep Well the Night before a Hypnotherapy Session
Hypnosis is not sleep. If you fall asleep, you will not reap the benefits of the session. Make sure to avoid an all-nighter just before a session.
Separate Myths from Facts
If you do not clear the doubts you may have, you will not be able to relax.
Hypnotherapy is recognized by many medical and psychological associations. It has been used for decades and yet there are misconceptions about hypnosis that prevent people from accessing a safe, non-invasive and non-addictive tool to live and perform better.
There are many misconceptions about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. For example, some people think that people sleep when hypnotized. A very good example of a hypnotic state is described through highway hypnosis. It refers to the state where you are driving and in a state of focused awareness. Can you remember driving on the highway or a long road? All of a sudden you might have wondered whether you missed the exit. That was an experience of time distortion: time flew by quickly leading you to think that you were much further ahead than you were. In that state, were you asleep? Were you losing control? Surely not. You were safely driving and in hypnosis.
