9. Please explain Hypnotherapy in your words. In my research, I’ve seen a co-existence between our brainwaves and our state of mind. I believe Hypnotherapy is a method to assist in reaching that point where the two are in such a harmony that the body operates on an optimal level. Hypnotherapy is used to help control the breathing and relaxation to allow for a clear path of suggestions to be accepted by the subconscious; found at the lower brainwave frequencies. Just like the co-existence of state of mind and brainwaves of the client; It too is a co-existence between client and therapist working in harmony with one common outcome in mind. 10. Any professional tips or advice would you like to share with your fellow therapist? I would say that the one thing I would advise is that each Therapist read the amazing true story of Dr. Albert Mason and the famous case he worked on back in 1950 and what he had discovered while using hypnosis on a 15-year-old boy, himself. I first discovered it while researching before becoming a hypnotherapist and then saw an interview he did himself for a documentary that can be found on YouTube entitled “Placebo: Cracking the Code”. The doctor was very successful with helping a patient with an issue, the doctor knew hypnosis could be very effective with. It was very successful, but then the doctor while attempting to help other patients with the same issue, he learned that the condition had been deemed an incurable disease. Once the doctor allowed this bit of information to reach his own subconscious. His success rate with other patients he attempted to work with fell greatly. Believing that the transference of what he truly now believed about the disease, effects the patient or client as well. So only work with clients on issues you truly believe or have experience in because your inner thoughts of success in the session is just as important to the overall success of the client. In other words; Have confidence in your own abilities, it does matter. Wow! Thank you Thomas Its beautiful.
