Against popular belief hypnosis is not really as it is portrayed in the public eye. In reality it is a more controlled and conscious state of mind in which a person is highly focused, attentive and responsive. The person being hypnotised remains awake for the most part and is aware of who he is. Sadly enough for some it will not be like the magician's ways of inducing a spell on someone and make him do whatever he says. The hypnosis referred to here is not robotic like, you remain in touch with your conscious and there is never a time when you are under someone's control. These simple hypnosis technqiues will be very handy.

Like any other skill it is crucial that you practice whatever hypnosis you're going to carry out. Go to the back office and go through your clients profile and determine the techniques you're going to implement on them as specific as possible. Doing this will help you conduct a thorough session; hypnosis is sometimes like a medical operation because of the precision factor that comes with it.

Have the subject of the hypnosis sit on a comfortable bed or on a soft cushion made of feathers. The comfort will definitely make the person relaxed and calm so that he/she can enter the subconscious free of obstacles like discomfort. It is very important that the person about to be hypnotised be completely calm, the entire process is dependent on that.

Use a slow and gentle voice during the entire session. Never at any point raise your voice and create a mood of disorder, chaos and confusion, everything must be straight and understandable. This is very calming; it gives the person peace and quiet, both ingredients to successful relaxation therapy.

Establish trust with your subject so that they feel they can confide in you. When it comes to stress therapy trust becomes clearly important, the subject can open up to you better once they believe that you will not harm them and that they will not reach a point of doing what they are not aware of during the session.

Imagination is what controls the way we see things, that's the reason why we always have different perception of the same thing. Activate the subject's sense of imagination and make them picture an image of something related to the problem. One technique is making them imagine their success.

Hope you'll be well assisted.

    Hypnosis describes a natural state that we all experience daily. This kind of everyday hypnosis can take the form of being absorbed in work, a book or movie or in activities such as driving, playing a game or daydreaming. The sense of being in the zone that many athletes and artists speak about, also comes under the umbrella of everyday hypnosis.
