The word “Hypnotherapy” spells out visions of being “under” and “in therapy”.
As a practising full time hypnotherapist of 21 years neither term in the real world applies.
Right brain coaching is a much more accurate description of the work you do. Using relaxation techniques to confuse, bypass, and relax the conscious mind in order to access the subconscious.
We access the subconscious mind every day but in a random manner.
If you drive, read a book, watch a film, or become emotional then you leaving the subconscious mind (right side of the brain wide open).
Hypnotherapy takes this a stage further by accessing the right side of the brain to achieve results for fee-paying clients.
This enables feelings to be realigned to a much more powerful sate.
Or in other words give you an edge.
The subconscious mind reacts very differently to the conscious mind. Therefore by employing purely cognitive approach you may listen and agree however your feelings don’t change.
If feelings are pitted against will power then will power comes second.
A skilled hypnotherapist will know how to set the framework to help a client achieve a particular objective. That objective can be anything the clients choose.
