Hypnotherapy (hypnosis)

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is when we narrow our attention and become absorbed in the experience.

We all go in and out of hypnotic trance several times a day, such as reading, listening to music, watching tv, driving, and even exercising at the gym. Trance is a natural state, and that means when you come for hypnotherapy, you have already experienced that state of mind where you feel relaxed and able to absorb beneficial ideas. 

Contrary to how hypnosis is often portrayed on television, you don't lose control over your behaviour while under hypnosis. You generally remain aware of and remember what happens during hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy can help with

  • Stop smoking
  • Lose weight
  • End phobias
  • End trauma
  • Gain confidence
  • End panic attacks
  • End addictions
  • Childhood trauma
  • Hypnotherapy

Benefits & Treatments

Keith Travis offers therapeutic hypnosis to help people affect positive changes in their lives.

Imagine giving up smoking in just one hour...easily, effortlessly and with few or no withdrawal symptoms. Imagine overcoming your sugar addiction, sleeping like a baby every night, improving your sports performance, attaining your ideal weight and fitness goals, gaining motivation, confidence, overcoming the fear of public speaking, calmly passing the driving exam, becoming more relaxed and less anxious, being free from phobias and hundreds of other negative habits or limiting beliefs.

You don't need to imagine, though, because you can achieve all the above and more easily and quickly.

Risks or Side Effects

Hypnosis conducted by a trained therapist or health care professional is considered a safe, complementary and alternative medical treatment. However, hypnosis may not be appropriate in people with severe mental illness.

Adverse reactions to hypnosis are rare but may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Anxiety or distress
  • Creation of false memories

Be cautious when hypnosis is proposed as a method to work through stressful events from earlier in life. This practice may cause strong emotions and can risk the creation of false memories.

How you prepare

You don't need any special preparation to undergo hypnosis. But it's a good idea to wear comfortable clothing to help you relax. Also, make sure that you're well-rested so that you're not inclined to fall asleep during the session.

What you can expect

Your therapist will explain the process of hypnosis and review your treatment goals. Then the therapist will typically talk in a gentle, soothing tone and describe images that create a sense of relaxation, security and well-being.

When you're in a receptive state, the therapist will suggest ways to achieve your goals, such as reducing pain or eliminating cravings to smoke.

When the session is over, either you can bring yourself out of hypnosis, or your therapist helps you end your state of relaxation.

Results

Many issues such as phobias, trauma and smoking cessation can take as little as one session. Weight issues usually are four sessions, including gastric band hypnosis. Everyone is unique, so depression, anxiety, stress, sleep problems, I.B.S., addictions may take several sessions; only you will know when you do not need to have another session. You are in control at all times.
