What can Hypnosis be Used for?

The problems which affect human beings are “unconscious” ones, almost by definition.

After all, nobody consciously chooses to behave in ways that cause them problems!  One of the great presuppositions of modern hypnotherapy is that all behaviour is trying to achieve a purpose, even if the effects of that behaviour are counter-productive.  In other words, the unconscious mind has convinced itself that the problem behaviour is “good” for us in some way, and persists despite all the evidence to the contrary.

It is notoriously difficult, if not impossible, to control unconscious behaviour through conscious effort alone. The human mind has often been compared to an iceberg, with the conscious mind being the 10% that you can see above the surface. That leaves 90% below the surface – and that’s the bit which sank the Titanic. To put it another way, the unconscious mind outnumbers the conscious mind by 9 to 1.  In your conscious, lucid moments you may well recognize that your habits, responses or feelings are causing you difficulty, but that lone rational voice will be drowned out by nine unconscious voices saying the exact opposite.

The solution, therefore, is to get the unconscious and conscious minds saying the same thing. Hypnosis is all about direct communication with the unconscious mind, and is the most powerful tool we have for bringing about change at the unconscious level. It can be used in any situation where you need to let go of old patterns of behaviour, and learn new ones.

All of the problems that people commonly seek hypnotic help for can be seen in this light including weight loss.

Changing unwanted habits such as smoking or nail biting obviously involves changing a pattern of behaviour, but so does something like gaining more confidence or dealing with stress – the unconscious needs to learn “confidence” patterns and unlearn “stress” patterns for specific situations.

So how does hypnosis actually teach the unconscious mind these new patterns of behaviour?  Broadly speaking the hypnotist or hypnotherapist is aiming to do at least one of two things. First of all, they aim to help the client perceive things in a different and more helpful way – a reframe in therapy jargon.  Phobias are a good example. When somebody has a phobia, their unconscious mind has labelled an object or situation as literally life-threatening. Hypnosis can be used to reframe that object or situation in a more realistic way, as something that is inherently safe, or at least non-threatening.

Even physical conditions such as chronic pain can be reframed.  An experiment conducted by the University of Bangor achieved remarkable results with rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. Using self-hypnosis, the participants visualized their pain as a person, bringing them news that something was wrong.  They were able to thank that person for the information, before sending them politely but firmly on their way. This technique brought about significant reduction in pain. In effect, their pain had been reframed, from “permanent condition” to “message delivered – so no longer needed”.

Reframing takes place every time the unconscious receives and accepts new information through hypnosis.  Learning better ways to deal with stress, breaking a dependence on cigarettes or alcohol, developing the ability to speak to the opposite sex without blushing, even learning to relax more deeply – these are all reframes, in that they literally create a different world for the client, one in which the old ways of going about things no longer apply.

The second hypnotic strategy is mental rehearsal of preferred behaviour or a preferred future. In therapy-speak, this is known as future pacing. Through the use of guided imagery, the hypnotist is able to re-create the preferred behaviour in rich and vivid detail, so that the client experiences it in their imagination as if it were actually happening.  Somebody who is severely stressed at work, for example, may be future-paced through a typical day feeling calm and in control.

The rationale behind future-pacing is that the unconscious mind does not discriminate between “real” and “imagined” events – it produces exactly the same physical and emotional responses to each.  If you vividly imagine your favourite meal, for instance, you’ll probably start to salivate.  In just the same way, building up a detailed mental picture of yourself acting or feeling better in a certain situation gives the unconscious mind a better template to refer to the next time it encounters that situation.

This process also harnesses expectation, a powerful force shaping human behaviour. We’re constantly trying to fulfil our expectations, good or bad. If you expect something to be stressful, it usually will be.  If you expect the same thing to be easily manageable, it will usually be that, too. This is another form of reframe, of course. Setting up positive expectations about a situation or event creates a preferred-behaviour shaped “hole”, which the unconscious mind seeks to fill with a preferred-behaviour shaped “peg”, made up of the appropriate emotions, responses and behaviours.

It could be argued that all problems are unconscious problems, even those that arise from external events that seem to be beyond our control. It is our reaction to these events, rather than the events themselves that is crucial. Through hypnosis, we can learn better ways for our unconscious minds to react to the uncertainties and challenges that are a normal part of living.

The Ideal Approach to Weight Loss

Is somebody who has in the past attempted to lose weight through various other means whether successful or not and who has also demonstrated a very realistic understanding of the commitment which is also required to see through to the end goal any program option which they may have been approved of by the clinical hypnotherapist conducting the assessment consultation. And given that personal investment, the participant then brings that into any program that they may be about to enter into which has been specifically developed to address the weight issues and life style challenges for that client. To also possess the required personal motivation in which will help them to strive towards their weight release targets in a healthy and responsible manner. Who will also carry out any instructions whether at home or in work and who always maintains that same level of commitment to stop at nothing to achieve that desired lifestyle changes & improvements while transitioning from their old eating habits to their new and improved eating patterns.

Client/Patient Profile Who May Have Struggled In The Past With Other Interventions we especially welcome you

You will be glad to know that all our weight management hypnosis programs have been especially developed to address the needs of those who may have struggled in the past to achieve the required desired result with any other intervention, and who may have found it difficult to achieve any of the lifestyle changes so wanted, at advance we move very quickly to identify those personal motivations which are then very quickly highlighted and identified and discussed during the initial consultation & fact find at the clinic. It is our full intension to then lead each client/patient towards an approval for any program which is then developed and affectively delivered to the client/patient at the clinic to have their needs and any such individual may go on to enjoy great success and enjoy their experience while in hypnosis and during hypnosis and may therefore go on to achieve their own personal success by engaging and committing fully to the program being delivered at the clinic and also the ongoing instructions which may need to be carried out at home as part of their program.

While every effort is taken to pre assess each client or patient referral attending any of the advance weight management hypnosis clinics comprehensive consultations and fact finds which are conducted over a 1 hour period in an effort to approve any participant, we aim to always be fair in our assessments and not to unfairly exclude any other participants who are hopeful for approval and who feel that they may not exactly meet that profile requirement, we promise that we will always be fair in each assessment as our policy is that everybody is entitled to a fair and unbiased assessment at all advance clinics. So, it is important to note that we can only work with and build any of our programs for weight release and ongoing weight management for each client/patient with truthful and accurate information which is provided by each participant at the consultation stage as that information is used to develop and personalise any hypnotherapy intervention which is intended to address their issue regarding the intensions for desired lifestyle changes in which they have attended the clinic in the first instance.   

Declaration
All advance clinical hypnotherapists reserve the right to either temporarily suspend/stop or completely suspend any program entered into by any participant if the hypnotherapist delivering the weight release solution feels that the participant has or is clearly obstructing or hindering their own progress or who is clearly not maintaining any of the requirements set out above in our client/patient profile to which their assessment and approval has been based.

The Advance Weight Management Hypnosis Clinics - Hypno-Health

What is the HYPNO-HEALTH program?

The Low Carb Moderate Proteins High Fat system is nothing new and has been around for quite some time already, with its origins in ketogenic approach leading to weight release & overall Health improvements happening naturally when the bodies carb intake has been reduced to 5% along with protein’s being levelled as 25% & the good fat’s having been raised to 70% utilising this simple format encourages the body to then affectively switch from consuming its main source fuel from glucose{refined sugars & bad carbs} to stored fat’s instead, while keeping the body fully nourished so that the Weight-Management can occur at a rate which is both healthier and more enjoyable.

Although we would always advocate a healthy exercise routine for everybody, this is especially good news for those people who cannot exercise for various medical reasons weather [For example] due to their age or their mobility, it had had a recent hip replacement – or if wheelchair bound rendering the individual unable to attend any gym or take up any exercise due to the nature of their condition, either pre or post-operative the HYPNO-HEALTH system allows for natural weight-release requiring minimum physical exertion.

As a part of the hypno-health program you will be provided with an easy to follow recommendation that accompanies the program – by following this program the body may easily switch from fat storage to fat burning in as little as 5 days, [while with some people this process may vary slightly] however allowing the individual to begin to enjoy seeing the stubborn weight finally shift while their health improves as we promote a healthy eating mindset during our hypnosis delivery that supports this program we take each participant back to nature while releasing weight making the whole process refreshingly enjoyable, this is then coupled with a normal standard evening meal each day with the family and again keeping you feeling great as your evening meal will provide you with your protein needed to keep you on track.

For far too long now all sorts of expensive get slim quick magic pill’s and shakes have saturated this market preying on the venerable who needed help to lose weight – So we at ADVANCE Clinics have developed this very simple & affective program to help those people who are deeply unhappy with their current weight and who have more or less exhausted every other way possible to address their weight issue with little or no success at all so, by offering a more realistic weight-management solution utilising hypnosis & combining it with an amazing natural nutritional system which is both healthy & reliable & that can be done at home, we give people back control as they also enjoy greater confidence as they see their own progress throughout the programs themselves.
