Nature of Hypnotherapy - by Randal Churchill|
The Subconscious is the Key
To get powerful, lasting and fairly rapid results in therapy, it is essential that the methods employed reach and affect the subconscious mind. The subconscious houses the emotions, imagination, memory, habits, intuition, and is the pathway to the superconscious.
|| It also regulates our autonomic body functions. It is the very core or essence of how we experience ourselves and the world. Meaningful personal transformation, whether in or out of therapy, results from a shift in the subconscious mind. (More...)|
Direct vs Indirect Suggestion
- by Randal Churchill
Understanding the Broad Context of Suggestion
Virtually all writings comparing and contrasting the use of direct and indirect suggestions in hypnosis refer to the structure of language. But there is much beyond the way we word suggestions that can have a major suggestive impact. These impacts are something we need to be keenly aware of in order to give maximum benefit to the influence of suggestions. Body language, facial expressions, tone and volume of voice, gestures, timing, eye contact,
physical contact such as a handshake, gender, age, bearing and appearance, including health, body type and clothing can all be major indirect suggestions that affect the meaning of our language. The meaning of language will also affect and be understood by each individual uniquely because of the various personal meanings and connotations each of us associates to words and phrases, and by the emotional state, mood and expectancies of your client.

Experiencing Hypnotic Regression Therapy
A Journey Through Time and Space…by Keith Thompson
"A state of intensified attention and receptiveness, and an increased responsiveness to an idea or to a set of ideas."
"Primarily a special psychological state with certain physiological attributes, resembling sleep only superficially and marked by the functioning of the
individual at a level of awareness other than the ordinary conscious state."|
These disparate definitions of hypnosis bear witness to an observation by psychology researcher Martin Orne: although there is no widely accepted definition of hypnosis, considerable consensus exists at a descriptive level. In other words, "Don't ask me to define it, but I'll tell you how it works and what it can do."
Self-Reflection, Hypnosis and Gestalt by Cheryl Canfield
Tools for Healing and Releasing the Past
The present is the only time we ever really have, and if we don't live in the present, we don't even scratch the surface of our potential. Two common negative feelings that keep us out of the present are guilt and worry. Guilt keeps us stuck in the past losing energy over something that already happened, and worry is a non-productive mulling over of some negative possibility in the future that may never happen. When we're working with a client who tends to get stuck in either of those states we can help that person switch their focus to self-reflection, hypnosis and possibly Gestalt to either heal the past or impact the future in a positive way.

The Future of Hypnotherapy
Interview with Kevin Ryerson - internationally acclaimed Expert Intuitive
KR: I think that hypnotherapy has great value in the area of certain
educational models, in reducing stress and helping people access
information that has laid dormant. I think it will also re-empower people to
work with their personal altered states, such as artists or people in
business following their intuition or creativity.
Biofeedback is a form of self-help that will probably continue to increase
and will be one of the cutting edges where hypnosis will be applied.
these things move into an even more slightly esoteric or leading edge,
medicine itself will come to accept hypnotherapy as a standard method of
practice in medicine. Hypnotherapy will probably become the real bridge
between many of the wholistic art forms and alternative therapies--truly
re-empowering people to retake command of their own sense of direction
for both mental and physical well-being. (More...)
