How does hypnosis work?

How does hypnosis work Many people ask me the question: Does hypnosis work? When I tell them it does, I usually get the following question: How does hypnosis work? The answer to this question is a little bit more complex than the first answer, but I’ll try to make it as comprehensible as possible.

The British Society of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis states that ‘In therapy, hypnosis usually involves the person experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist.

It is these suggestions that help the patient make changes within themselves. So, does hypnosis work because the therapist dives into your brain and makes changes there? No, absolutely not. In hypnotherapy, the patient is always in control and you can not be made to do anything you do not want.


Conversational hypnosis – The art of making people do what you want them to do.

This is without a doubt the most controversial form of hypnosis. The art of conversational hypnosis is to ‘hypnotize’ the person you are talking to and make him/her do what you tell them to without them having a clue about what is going on. You can imagine that when you get very good at this, you can pretty much do anything to anyone. This is what makes it controversial, because you decide how far you want to take this.
This technique is taught in some of the ‘how to talk a girl into your bed’ courses. One of those guys actually manages to walk up to celebrities and have them give him their phone number or invite him to their home. One of the most famous examples of this is when he saw Paris Hilton walking into a bakery and he talked her into giving him her phone number then and there. But this can also be used in sales talks, job interviews, casting calls and any other situation where you feel you need an edge.
