What happens during a hypnotherapy session?
The beauty of hypnosis is that a person’s subconscious mind doesn’t distinguish between imagining something and having it happen in reality. As far as the subconscious mind is concerned, the physiological responses are the same regardless of whether the client is imagining something or experiencing it.
The client, therefore, has the advantage of intellectually knowing that a situation is happening only in the imagination and physically responding as though it has happened. During the session, the client can imagine themselves in a situation feeling confident and empowered.
The client is still reclined in the chair, yet as far as the body knows, they have experienced what it feels like to be confident.
So, when it comes time for the client to make changes, the subconscious mind and the body will feel as though this has already occurred. Therefore, the client will have the confidence and ability to move forward and trust that whatever happens they will be alright.
