Hypnosis Introduction With a Professional Hypnotherapist
My introduction to hypnosis was accidental. It was 2004 when I met Adam at the BNI business network meetings.
When you set yourself up to develop websites for clients one of the fascinating things is that you learn a lot about different businesses. How do they work? What makes them tick?
So that was the case with Adam Eason and his clinical hypnotherapy business.
I developed a website for Adam who was working out of a clinic near Bournemouth. To say I knew nothing then about hypnosis is a fact. Nothing that is about clinical hypnosis. Hmmm – But I had in the past seen stage acts – but that was all.
But here in front of me was a guy who was very passionate about his subject. I was intrigued and wanted to discover more.
AND as far as I was concerned that was good …
Adam was training hypnotherapists and what we decided to do was to video the courses and also develop audio hypnosis products. Front pew for me with the video camera.
How could I fail to learn all about hypnosis – when I was shooting the recordings and editing them.
Of addition I also got to know other people who trained with Adam and are now themselves trained hypnotherapists. Some of those have developed specialist areas – such as hypno-birthing.
When Hypnosis Works – The Seed Takes Roots
What is a common story from people who have moved into the field is that they had an issue that was driving them insane – all attempts to find a solution had failed.
Adam himself is an example of that. All his attempts with medical consultations and ointment treatments for his psoriasis had failed. Someone suggested hypnosis and do I need to say – within a couple of weeks all had cleared up.
Yesterday I included the audios of Adam telling you in his words his basic narration about hypnosis and what it is.
All his work is research based and you can pursue that as far as you like with Adam as he has written a book called Science Of Self-Hypnosis. Also his blog and podcasts are full of his professional approach to all of these psychological therapies. You can even go and train in the field with him via his online courses.
AND NOW !!
OK – that all said – I am going to take a totally different approach right here with my retirement Wats-on My Mind project.
I am getting away from the academic theories and discussions about what hypnosis is etc.
I just so want you if you are sceptical about all of this power of the brain – to just give it a go and learn hypnosis skills. You can learn more about the theory at a later stage. I am keen that you go for a ride first.
Here on my blog you will get my:
- simple real anecdotes approach
- my end user approach
- my simple language approach
- my if it works that is great approach
- so what that is good – approach.
For example: If you ask me what hypnosis is – a typical reply from me would be – focused imagination.
The interesting thing is that people who try and get some release from a problem will want more.
A Freelance Writer Uses Hypnosis For Sleep
This blog post which is well researched is by a freelance writer. You can find the complete blog post at: https://www.self.com/story/hypnosis-for-skin
I love the title of this blog post written by Sarah Ban
I Tried Hypnosis for Insomnia. Then My Skin Cleared Up. – I don’t understand it, either, but I’m not complaining.
How often have I seen and heard that.
So many people who have used hypnosis will say the same thing. “I don’t know how it worked – but it did.”
Here is my Main Point of this Blog Post – Hypnosis Works:
You are probably not a car mechanic or understand how it works but that doesn’t stop you driving a car.
In a similar way – you don’t have to fully understand how or why hypnosis works – just give it a proper try and surprise yourself.
Wats-on With Physical and Mental Health
This website domain is Wats-on.net and the tag line is Physical and Mental Health. My blog Wats-on my Mind is my retirement project to get as many people as possible using hypnosis and psychological techniques in their everyday lives.
The extraordinary thing about our bodies is that so much is governed directly from our powerful organ the brain.
Get control of those thoughts!
I was hospital nursing for 30 years and I have to admit that most people working directly with everyday illnesses, surgery etc can be very busy – oh and HOW BUSY!
The emotions, fears and anxiety of patients going through the clinical scenario can be less than ideal. No bad intent from the staff, but the administrative pressures, time pressures and safety issues, money pressures all reduce the time available.
Nursing tried to do something about this.
I was involved when something called the Nursing Process was introduced which was a scientific method to ensure the quality of patient care.
The 5 Steps of the Nursing Process
The first step of the nursing process is assessment. During this phase, the nurse gathers information about a patient’s psychological, physiological, sociological, and spiritual status.
Nurse making an educated judgment about health problems of a patient – eg sleep deprivation
Once a patient and nurse agree on the diagnoses, a plan of action can be developed. The Nursing Interventions Classification may also be used as a resource for planning.
The implementing phase is where the nurse follows through on the decided plan specific to each patient.
Evaluation to determine of the goals for patient wellness have been met.
Still not Getting To The Mental Issues
I can only talk in general terms and my comments here are fairly sweeping.
The thing is that nursing leaders had realised that the clinical interventions be they medical or surgical could have a great effect on the well-being of the patient.
Of course I worked directly with doctors and witnessed the pressures on them – such as crazy number of overnight hours on call after a full days work – so I am not knocking them – but their interest could often be focused on a specific area of the patients body. Nurses had a more well-being holistic approach because of their closer relationship with the patient.
Despite these efforts by nurses to personalise the care and offer a secure, safe treatments, I still believe we did not begin to really get to grip with the mental aspects of the care.
For example I remember a patient who had changed quite suddenly. He clearly was concerned and I was trying to establish whether something had happened with his family etc. It was several days before I found out from a relative that he was concerned because a man had died in the ward, that he had been talking to. He thought that the patient had the same condition as him and was convinced he was also not going to go home. What is going on in a busy ward is very unsettling and a poor environem
Let me remind you what I said in my blog a couple of days ago.
The reason that I called my Blog ‘Wats-on My Mind’ is to introduce and educate as many as possible about controlling what goes on inside our heads. As a nurse I realised that people with positive approach to their illness or surgery responded so much better than those that worried and were anxious. My work with Adam and observing his hypnotherapy work reinforced that point.
My feeling that I had while I was nursing has been reinforced since I started working with Adam Eason a clinical Hypnotherapist.
So what I will introduce you to tomorrow is a really fleeting look at what has influenced me since I retired from nursing in 1996.
You will hopefully understand why I link the mental and physical so closely.
For now just think about blushing – or sexual attraction and physical reaction to just seeing the person of your dreams. Pretty powerful physical responses from thoughts.
Live Video For Business Relationships
It is great to introduce you to Jim Edwards who has several courses about copywriting. Now this morning I came across a live Facebook video from Jim.
I have been reading Jim’s blogs for some time now so I was interested as I know his advice is gold.
My own intention to increase and enrich my relationships with potential affiliates is to use live videos – and so I am looking out for entrepreneurs who are already producing videos on the go.
As you can see by watching this video the moving camera and off screen shots are not a distraction – in fact they add to the effect of natural presentation and unhyped content.
What was great for me was the fact that he walks half an hour every day for health reasons.
So here is the live video:
OK – that is an easy blog for me today – but hopefully my live video will be coming your way soon.
