People considering a hypnosis or hypnotherapy session for the first time are often unclear about what it is or whether it will help them – or even how to go about making initial contact to find out more. Not only have they got the fear that they might not get rid of their own problem but there is the fear of the unknown – a new therapy, a hypnotist they do not know etc. If you have been feeling anxious, then you are not alone and it is only right that you have questions.
What Is Hypnotherapy?
It is the clinical application of hypnosis. Hypnosis is defined as “a narrow state of attention where a person is focused on one thing or things to the exclusion of all else.” Hypnosis can also be defined as the “induction of conviction” because you are able to change beliefs and become more certain in your own abilities. Usually, a client works with a hypnotherapy practitioner in one or more sessions to gain access to greater latent abilities in the subconscious mind and overcome whatever is the presenting problem. The subconscious is the repository of all your memories, emotions, thoughts and the part of you that grows hair, builds blood cells and regulates your heartbeat – all without your having to give any thought to these processes. Because the unconscious mind is so powerful (and theoretically infinite in its capacity), it makes sense to tap in this wider part of you when making changes.
What Can Hypnotherapy Be Used For?
Most people are aware it can be useful for smoking cessation and weight control. But it also highly effective with anxieties, phobias, nail biting, blushing, sleep disorders, improving sports performance and pretty much anything you can think of. Your hypnotherapist can tell you their portfolio of problems they work with.
Is Hypnotherapy The Same As Mind Control?
No. There is often a confusion that people will be “going under” as is apparently the case with stage hypnosis. This is NOT the case. You will be aware at all times and with heightened attention. Many studies have consistently shown that a subject will not doing anything that is against their core values when in trance. Since you are aware at all times, it is YOUR choice to follow the suggestions.
What Is The Difference Between Hypnotherapy And Stage Hypnosis?
Stage hypnosis is a show whereby the entertainer (stage hypnotist) picks five or so people who he has noticed are highly suggestible and keen to participate. These people tend to respond very directly to commands, whether or not they are in a deep level of trance. Most people are therefore NOT suitable for participation in a stage act. However, everyone can enjoy various states of trance and benefit from hypnotherapy.
How Will I Know I Am “In Trance”?
This is very personal and subjective, yet you have undoubtedly had many common experiences of being in trance already. When you are watching TV, the telephone is ringing and you haven’t noticed – because you have been engrossed in program or film. Or driving along a motorway and suddenly you notice that you are four exits past where you wanted to get off and you can’t remember the last few miles. Other hypnotic phenomena include “negative hallucination” where you just can’t seem to find your household keys, no matter how hard you look!
If you would like to find out more, the hardest thing is to make the initial contact, for fear of being “sold” something or not knowing what to ask, or a million other reasons. I know how tricky it can feel – that’s why I recommend an informal chat with me on 02920 193978 to ask any questions you would like, without obligation.

Did you know that hypnosis can ensure YOUR success in quitting smoking?
Imagine the benefits of a smoke-free life now. Greater energey, more confidence and control over your life. No more smelly breath and being ostracised or having to leave a pub or club for a sneaky cigarette, as if you were back in school hiding from teachers.
Renowned Master Hypnotherapist and Life Coach Richard Haggerty is making available through his website, www.StopSmokingCardiff.co.uk his 10 tricks to stop smoking online course to ensure that Cardiff smokers can quit smoking before the end of 2007. The articles provide tools and exercises that any smoker can use to quit smoking cold turkey without patches, gum, or pills.
"Over the past decade, I have developed and refined a quit smoking program that uses hypnosis to make even chronic smokers smoke-free after just one session," reports Richard. "I am pleased to make the 10 Tricks I provide to all of my clients available to the public via this free online course."
Since clients typically have the same worries and concerns and I spent a considerable amount of time educating them and assisting them to prioritise the goal of stopping smoking, it made sense to provide a course that people could use to do that for themselves. If they would like extra assistance, then I am also here to provide there in my personal one-on-one hypnotherapy sessions.
Richard is a certified master hypnotherapist and life coach with over 10 years of clinical experience. He is the number-one Doctor recommended hypnotherapist in the Cardiff area. Richard has helped hundreds of patients quit smoking using his revolutionary program.
Readers of the "10 Tricks" articles will learn about proven techniques that have helped many smokers through the difficulty of quitting cigarettes. The articles give guidance on prioritizing the goal, focusing on results, managing stress, and other keys to successful smoking cessation. "The hypnosis session, either in person, is the engine for quitting smoking," says Richard, "the 10 Tricks are the fuel that keeps the engine turning."
Richard’s success rates for stopping smoking have made him the premier stop smoking clinic in South Wales.
