"Hypnosis is a psychological process where the mind’s critical thinking ability is bypassed and the subconscious takes center stage. Selective perception and thought are established."

Hypnosis works while people are awake, allowing them to reach a relaxed state and putting all conscious thought aside.

Hypnosis - The Clinical Kind

This is where the differences start. The stage hypnosis or the kind of hypnosis you see on televisions or shows is for entertainment. In clinical hypnosis, no such surrendering of one's will to another person is involved. Clinical hypnosis is not about making other people do something that they are not willing to do. It's not any kind of mind control. Clinical hypnosis is about a deeper state of relaxation and more about inner concentration. During hypnosis, people are more receptive towards the power of suggestion.

For anyone willing to learn or understand hypnosis, the concept of subconscious mind is equally important. Subconscious mind is the more powerful of the two counterparts - conscious and subconscious. While your conscious part is responsible for every thing that you are doing with an effort, your subconscious is involved with the activities that you are not making a deliberate effort for. E.g. If you just concentrate on your breathing - you will notice how many muscle movements are involved and if I say "Take a deep breath", you can do that with your conscious mind. However, all the while that you were reading this text or doing something else, it was your subconscious mind that was responsible for that smooth breathing that keeps you alive. It’s that part of the brain that runs in the background when a person is asleep or about to wake up. This part of the mind is also responsible for sending and receiving various physical receptors. It is continually at work in the different activities a person does throughout his day.

The subconscious can be likened to a computer’s operating system. It’s busy running while the conscious part creates people’s individual behavioral executions. Psychiatrists and psychologists have often turned to clinical hypnosis for treating traumatized incest, rape and assault victims. Hypnosis can likewise be utilized for controlling pain. Women in labor as well as burn victims are also likely candidates for hypnosis sessions.

Clinical hypnosis is often used to achieve changes in people’s thought processes and behavior. The clinical version of hypnosis has proven useful in addressing a wide range of situations. Nevertheless, clinical hypnosis has been most commonly linked with effective stress management, weight control and smoking termination.

The mysteries of hypnosis haven’t completely been solved. Most people and experts continue to remain in the dark about some of its aspects. Still, plenty of clinicians have observed that hypnosis can be extremely effective despite not knowing the lowdown on how it works scientific-wise. A lot of people opt for hypnosis to alter behavior as with the abovementioned examples.

Prior to picking a hypnosis specialist, it’s always best to check their credentials. Verify that the person you’ve chosen is legit. They should be duly licensed (NOT MERELY certified) in the province or state where they’re practicing. If you have read my review of conversational hypnosis, you would have noticed that I have specially researched on the background of Igor Ledochowski - The creator of Power Of Conversational Hypnosis program. This is the reason I recommend this program over all others. Very few programs out there have such a distinguished name behind them.
