202512 A personalised approach to hypnosis is concentrated on induction, deepener, hypnotic suggestion work and sometimes the proper exit from trance state, according to most of the therapists. Ready-made hypnosis scripts written by an experienced professional therapist work well if the person is unused to hypnosis and have misgivings about it. By personalising the process according to the knowledge of the client and his situations,
There are many points that could be included in a personalised induction. But the main suggestions rest on four components:
3. Conceptual negatives
4. Four sense test.
Personalisation connects to the individual’s personality, circumstances of hypnosis, desired achievement and his particular need. Atmosphere is avoiding a monotone that has been much used, adopting a more personalised suitable for the circumstances so that it could create a particularly suitable atmosphere. Emotion should never be avoided because it will work on the individual’s sub-conscience. The commands should be stressed and emotionally underlined and according to therapists, slight overacting works very well.
Conceptual negatives are comprised with words like no, not, never, which are, traditionally not used it hypnosis scripts, can be used in personalised scripts in a very suggestive and forceful way, without conveying a negative meaning. "There is no need for you hesitate. you will find the entire experience exhilarating!"
Four sense test increases the power of the suggestion by lengthening it. This only means decorating the expectations of the hypnotised person, by glorifying it. By creating a sensational visualisation, with powerful and persuasive approach the theorist can improve the impact tremendously.
Inductions and deepeners should be impressive and relaxing. The ‘indeepener’ approach where induction and deepener work as one and this approach is considered to be more suitable.
With all the above suggestions, it is important to note that the atmosphere and personalisation could be more suitable than the other two.
HOW BRAIN WORKS
According to recent researches, hypnosis has the power to change the functioning of the brain, by using functional brain imaging, according to John Gruzlier. (http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn6385-hypnosis-really-changes-your-mind.html )
It has always been known that mind works differently while in hypnotised state and this proves the compliance theory wrong. It is not miraculous, but happens due to the altered brain function in that state. The tests on volunteers have shown that "..a frontal lobe region of the brain called the cingulate gyrus which controls behavior and monitors mistakes" works differently compared to the un-hypnotized. http://mindcontrolwithhypnosis.blogspot.com/2005/07/brain-works-differently-in-hypnosis.html
THREE TYPES OF MODALITIES
There are a number of modalities. but some professionals commend the three type modalities of:
1. The Pre-Hypnosis talk
2. Neuro-Linguistic programming (NLP)
3. Traditional timeline therapy.
The above approach is a culmination of traditional and modern hypnosis and the therapists approve that these modalities work better than others, because of hypnosis’s capability of showing a totally different area of the brain. "Hypnosis is simply a state of heightened relaxation and is a dreamy, pleasant experience and using hypnosis is often the start of a new way of life and your first visit could be the start of an exciting, stimulating and challenging journey" http://www.hypnoworks.org.uk/phdi/p1.nsf/supppages/2337opendocument&.part=2
Hypnosis does not change people’s behaviour dramatically. instead, it helps them to identify their limited behaviour, by gently prodding them towards the unlimited vista. It has been used by criminologists, psychologists and psychiatrists with appreciable results. It has shown great potential of changing the mind, intention and behaviour of the people after the therapy.
