Do you have a stubborn problem or a barrier to progress that you’d like to deal with? Then you’ve come to the right place. I’m Robert Plamondon, a clinical hypnotherapist in Corvallis, Oregon. Hypnosis is not only fast, safe, and effective, it’s the most comfortable way of resolving your stubborn issues, because it uses all our hidden resources, from our most childlike to our wisest and most mature, to solve our problems.
Hypnosis gets you unstuck. Most of us have goals that we need to achieve, but our instinct is to distract ourselves and avoid dealing with the issue. Sometimes we do this because it’s difficult to get past our emotions and face with the issue directly, while other times we aren’t quite sure how to get started, because we don’t know where the problem is coming from! Hypnosis deals with both issues at once.
For example, take someone who wants to stop smoking and has tried nicotine patches, but they don’t help. Clearly, the problem isn’t chemical, so what is it? I don’t know, but unconscious mind does. All the hypnotist has to do is use hypnosis to ask the question, and take our next steps accordingly. If the answer is, “I don’t know how to relax without smoking,” then we know that the smoker will stop just as soon as that skill is relearned!
Or takes someone who is so afraid of spiders that they can’t look at the word “spider” written on a piece of paper. Hypnosis is very calming and relaxing, and things that would be overwhelming in the normal waking state can be discussed and even experienced comfortably in hypnosis, and once you’ve experienced something comfortably in hypnosis, it’s hard to go back to being afraid of it.
What is hypnotherapy? I like to say that “hypnotherapy is hypnosis with all the trimmings.” There are lots of ways to think about hypnotherapy, but the simplest is perhaps to see it as a way of “increasing your inner teamwork” and “replacing unhelpful habits with helpful ones.” Hypnosis can bring about positive changes quickly and thoroughly because:
- It communicates your conscious desires to your unconscious mind, which otherwise might not be paying much attention (as you have probably noticed!). Most of what we do is based on unconscious decisions, so once your unconscious mind is brought on board, change is much easier.
- It engages your imagination and sense of make-believe, making it easier and more comfortable for you to think about new approaches differently, and to test-drive new things in your imagination.
- Hypnosis is very relaxing and comfortable, while at the same time focusing your attention, making it easy to face the issue calmly and resourcefully.
Because the process is so fast, more people can afford it. (See my How Long Does it Take? post.)
