Quote: "A hypnotherapist cannot force you to change, or do anything that you don't want to do."
The growth of the internet has seen a growth in the industry of online hypnotherapy. People can now receive professional help from some of the worlds' top clinical hypnotherapists' in the comfort of their own homes. What implications does this have for the disabled
I'll first tell you a little bit about hypnotherapy.
Hypnosis is not the magical state that it is often depicted in the media. It is a normal and natural state of mind, which is rather similar to daydreaming. The person in a trance is still very much in control. They can hear what is being said, and can easily choose to stand up and walk away if they really wanted to. It's usually just the case that they don't want to, because they are so enjoying the relaxing and peaceful hypnotic state.
Hypnosis quietens down the conscious part of the mind in order to increase the access of the subconscious part. This part of the mind is where our habits and desires are formed. A well trained professional clinical hypnotherapist can access this part of the mind and convince it to change by clever use of language and imagery.
A hypnotherapist cannot force you to change, or do anything that you don't want to do.
You have a choice as to whether to accept or reject the suggestions. They cannot be forced upon you. If that was the case then unscrupulous hypnotherapist could simply convince their bank manager to let them in the vault and take all the cash! This might happen in books and films, but not in reality.
A person has to really want to change.
If a person wants to quit smoking, then a hypnotherapist can help them. However if for example their partner forces them to go to a clinical hypnotherapist for smoking cessation and they don't really want to quit, then they are very unlikely to, even with the help of a good clinical hypnotherapist.
Disabled people are now enjoying more access to hypnotherapy than ever before. In the past, people with mobility problems may have struggled getting to the hypnosis surgeries for treatment. Even if they got there, they may have experienced difficulties with access. That has all changed now thanks to the internet.
A hypnotherapy session can now be purchased instantly over the internet.
You can browse for your particular treatment online, and purchase online. The recording can be sent instantly via download, so there is not even any need to wait for, and pay for, postage and packaging. These recordings are also available at a fraction of the cost of 'live' hypnotherapy sessions, and can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.
There are also some hypnotherapists who will do 'live' work over the internet.
It is perfectly possible to receive hypnotherapy via Skype or some other similar network if you want a more personal touch. These typically cost more than the pre recorded sessions, but they offer a personal one to one service that is easily accessible from the home.
Hypnotherapy can help you with so many different things.
It can help someone improve their confidence, motivation, quit smoking, eat healthier, relax, be happier and sleep better to name just a few. More people than ever now have access to this form of therapy, which is a good position to be in.
A person who is housebound can also benefit from creative visualizations of going places like to the beach, forest, or indeed anywhere. If you visualize something clear enough, your subconscious mind believes that it has really happened. For example when you wake up after visualizing being on a sunny relaxing beach, you can feel as if you have really been there, and indeed receive some of the psychological and physical benefits of this. It can provide a welcome release for some people who may begin to feel frustrated from being in the house for long periods of time.
