Hypnosis is still a relatively little understood therapy and many people associate it with mind control or a trance-like state, because of what they’ve seen in the movies. However, this is simply not true. Bright Butterfly hypnotherapy in Stoke is here to set the record straight on the top 5 hypnosis myths.

All Hypnosis is the Same

Like most therapy’s hypnosis is different depending on the therapist and the issue at hand. Contrary to popular belief, there is no counting back from ten and waving a pocket watch in front of your face. Typically speaking there is authoritarian and permissive hypnosis, which both take different approaches and how a session is delivered will differ from therapist to therapist.

It’s All Subliminal Messages 

Many believe that hypnotherapy involves putting a person to sleep and subliminally messaging them to change their behaviours, but in actual fact, it is quite the opposite. Bright Butterfly hypnotherapy in Stoke encourages people to take control of their lives and forge a new future which involves being alert, awake and committed to the treatment.

Not Everyone Can Be Hypnotised

I often hear of people saying they don’t believe they would be hypnotised, but a good therapist who has the right skills and takes the time to get to know patients will have a pretty good chance. My hypnotherapy in Stoke has been successful in achieving a hypnotic state in even the most stubborn of patients!

You are Not in Control

The biggest fear people have when coming to see me is that they will be put into such a state of unconsciousness that they are totally out of control, which stops them seeking hypnotherapy when it could be the most appropriate treatment for them. However, all clients have complete control over their thoughts and actions during and after hypnosis, so there really is nothing to be concerned about.
