What Is Hypnosis?

Many people think that hypnosis is a mystical ability to manipulate people and make them do things they wouldn’t ‘normally’ do.


This couldn’t be further from truth.


Hypnosis is a natural state of our mind, like breathing or sleeping.

It’s simply an ability to accept information or ideas without critically analysing it.


Humans naturally go in and out of hypnosis several times a day without realising it.


What Hypnosis Is

If you are afraid of hypnosis and the potential negative impact, rest assured it’s just a result of myths and fears that an average person would have.

When in hypnosis you will:

How Does Hypnosis Occur?

Consensual hypnosis is a result of just two factors:

professional hypnotherapy

The guidance from the hypnotherapist

Your compliance with their guidance

The guidance uses simple language, "look ay my hand" , "close your eyes", "imagine there is a tree", etc.

I have never seen a person who was unable to follow the guidance.

When you follow the therapist’ instructions you go into hypnosis. If you carry on, then you will gradually go deeper and become receptive to new information and ideas


Exactly what’s needed for successful therapy.

People do better with practice, and after a few repetitions anyone can learn to go into hypnosis quickly and easily.

Emerging from hypnosis is even easier than going into it - you simply need to stop focusing on your internal experiences and start paying attention to the world around you.

At the end of the hypnotic session your therapist will emerge you from hypnosis, but if you wish you can do it all by yourself by simply opening your eyes — in a matter of minutes the hypnotic state will simply vanish.

One of my clients has volunteered to give her personal view on hypnotic experience:

Think for yourself, if hypnosis was dangerous or difficult to obtain:

Would police and court still need to exist — one hypnotist would be able to resolve even most complicated cases?

What 'critical factor' is and why working with it is essential for successful hypnotherapy.

Unconscious Mind

we’re born with it, and it allows us functioning as physical bodies, using bio-chemistry to bring to life our experiences and emotions.

Subconscious Mind

Starts forming after birth and serves as a huge storage of all experiences and memories that over time form beliefs and traits of character which are hard to change once established. It’s believed to take up to 98% of our mind.


Conscious Mind

It’s a logical reasoning that develops with age, until approx. 20 y.o. It’s very limited in its capacity, and its focus changes constantly. Hence why it’s very difficult to make any personal change only based on logic.

The Critical Factor

Protects the Subconscious and insures stability and status quo. Acts as a filter and has it’s own idea of what’s good and what’s not, often different from our’s. Hence it plays a critical role is the process of change

The key elements of this video to take on board are:

Individual Hypnotherapy

The critical factor is your critical thinking function

Over time, the number of irrational beliefs may grow and, in turn, produce an issue


It constantly compares the new ideas and intentions with the existing ones that reside in your subconscious mind

hypnosis for ocd

All your conscious efforts to solve the issue may not work due to the critical factor, which will be protecting ‘the status quo’ by hooks or by crooks and resist changes.

If you already have any limiting irrational beliefs, then the critical factor will only allow for the information that supports and reinforces them

Hence, if you really want to change the state of affairs and get rid of the issue once and for all, you need to switch off the critical factor to make the desired change. And it’s done easiest in hypnosis.

Accepting Change

Hypnosis is simply a focused state of attention; so focused that the usual critical thinking that takes part in any information processing or decision making gets temporarily bypassed.

When this happens, the door gets opened for the new useful ideas about self or to clean up the old and limiting ones. 

When the limiting ideas disappear, they take the root cause of the issues away, so the problem disappears with all its symptoms.

The new healthy and useful ideas get installed into the subconscious mind and become an integral part of the

person’s identity — renewed and strengthened.
