The Real Cost of a Hypnotic Approach: Can You Afford Not to?

by Shana Rosenthal, Certified Consulting Hypnotist 


In spite of the numerous advantages that hypnosis can bring to our lives, numerous people still view it as somewhat of a luxury. Even though they would likely pay for other activities with the intention of making themselves feel emotionally better such as retail therapy, nights out, vacations, drinking, smoking or eating take-out food, investing in something such as hypnosis is still considered extravagant or unnecessary by some. Even so, with evidence showing that hypnosis can help with issues such as weight, smoking, worry, despair, fears or sleep just to name a few, can we really afford not to try it? 


The Positive Aspects of Hypnosis 

The conscious mind easily forgets many of our life experiences. However, the subconscious stores just about everything, from the earliest childhood experiences and ordeals right up to the present moment. Hypnosis functions by allowing the hypnotist to guide a client toward reaching the subconscious mind, allowing the chance to deal with and release deep-rooted belief systems or unhelpful patterns of behavior. The possible benefits which can occur from working in this manner are considerable.  


Weight Reduction 

Weight management efforts can be hard to sustain for many individuals, regardless of how much they want to shed the weight. It can be difficult to maintain the motivation when they’re constantly battling their own faltering will-power. This can be due to subconscious beliefs and patterns regarding food and weight which no amount of self-restraint can fully resolve. A hypnotist can find these issues and re-program them with visualizations and the power of suggestion, allowing for real and permanent weight control results to take place. 


Breaking Habits 

People plagued with habits and self-sabotaging behaviors might face the same situation as “yo-yo” dieters. Irrespective of how vigilantly they attempt to kick the habit, they just seem unable to sustain any permanent changes. This is often because their focus is confused. Smokers, for example, often make use of nicotine substitute products under the assumption that by healing the body of its nicotine fixation, they might be able to stop smoking cigarettes.  

Yet, given this obsession stems from the subconscious, taking that approach often doesn't work. If the subconscious is engaged and the root of the addiction is addressed, a smoker's probabilities of successfully stopping are enhanced drastically. This can be achieved effectively with hypnosis often in just one or two sessions.  


Fear and Panic 

Many people’s lives are wrecked by worry, fear and panic, with some even finding their occupation or educational goals inhibited. The cost of tolerating this anxiety may be considerable, causing a person to reject job offers or drop out of college. However, by collaborating with a hypnotist, this challenge can be faced and settled, with the client getting a new lease of life through acquiring greater social confidence and control over a situation. 


Therefore, despite the fact that its cost might seem more than you can afford at first glance, the substantial advantages that hypnosis can bring to your life are priceless.
