Whenever the word "hypnosis" is mentioned, it never fails to elicit very similar responses.
Some are fascinated and think of the ability to control their minds. Others think it is just some silly gimmick or trick for entertainment.

What exactly is hypnosis anyway? It has long been connected with the strange and mysterious.
It conjures up images of shamans and magicians. People can take control of your mind by waving a pocket watch in front of you.

Before you know it, you are following their every command. In reality, there is nothing supernatural or mysterious about hypnosis.

Almost all of us, have at one time or another, experienced light hypnosis. In fact, in some respect -- we experience a version of this everyday.

Have you ever bad a friend describe'her experience at a new restaurant?

When she starts detailing the juicy, succulent steak she had and its heavenly aroma and hearing it sizzle as the waiter brought it to the table, do you feel your mouth watering and your stomach rumble even though you just had your meal 20 minutes ago?

That is hypnosis. You've been brought to a different state of consciousness where your mind can literally see, smell, and taste the steak and you feel hungry and begin to salivate.
Milton Eriekson, one of the most prominent figures in modern day hypnosis, postulates that we all experience hypnosis on a daily basis.

When we are doing something, we may find ourselves "lost to that moment", focused on the task at hand and blocking out all other stimuli. This is the process of hypnosis.

We have actually moved into a different level of consciousness where we are now
intensely diverting our focus on a narrowed down scope where most stimuli can be momentarily pushed aside.

It places us in a state of hypcr-attcntive to a chosen stimulus.

Meanwhile, hypnotherapy is the process of hypnosis used by psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, counsellors and even dentists to help with some human condition.

Hypnosis has long been accepted by the American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association and the

American Psychological Association as an adjunct to treatment.

Hypnotherapy has also be known to effectively help clients experience age regression where they can relive the experience of their childhood in their mind as clearly as when it happened a long time ago,

So in conclusion -- what is hypnosis, who is a hypnotist, and a hypnotherapist?

Hypnosis refers to that process whereby we zero in our concentration on a particular stimulus momentarily blocking out other stimuli thereby increasing our ability to absorb and be attentive to the chosen stimuli.

A hypnotist is an individual who uses the principles of hypnosis to help induce the state of hypnosis in a subject for the purpose of entertainment.

A hypnothcrapist is the individual who understands and utilises the principles of hypnosis and applied psychology to help others in dealing with physical, emotional, and psychological challenges/problems.
In seeking out a hypnotherapist, be sure to look for individuals with solid background training in Counselling, Psychology, or Psychiatry.

Now, are you game to test out hypnotherapy?
