How will Hypnosis feel like?
To the contrary of common belief, Hypnosis is not a sleep state, indeed far from it and participants are in full control throughout the whole process.
Hypnosis is a very natural state. Everyone has experienced the hypnotic state, or some called it a trance state, in moments of daydreaming, intense concentration (e.g. being absorbed in a movie or a great book). In a hypnosis session, you achieve this state intentionally under the guidance of a hypnotist. Almost everyone can be hypnotized as long as they are open and willing.
The Treatment Plan
Upon a thorough understanding of the presenting issues and the agreement of the therapeutic goals, Gladys will design a treatment plan leveraging on the following modalities to deliver the best possible outcome.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy - Hypno-CBT®
Hypno-CBT® is the integration of hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It focuses on the intricate relationship between Thoughts/Beliefs, Behaviour and Emotions. The world or our circumstances are as good or as bad as how we see it. That's why different people can have very different responses to the same circumstances. Our thoughts and beliefs are very powerful. Negative/unhelpful thoughts trigger negative emotions which leads to undesirable behaviour and symptoms. Limiting beliefs keep you from living the best version of yourself.
With Hypno-CBT®, therapeutic goals and changes are achieved through inducing positive and helpful cognitive and behavioural changes while clients are under hypnosis. In addition, Clients will be given guidance on self-practices between sessions in order to reinforce the desirable changes.
Negative situations and experiences during childhood and infancy can have lasting effects on how we see ourselves and the world, and on how we think, behave, feel and live in the present; which might potentially lead to issues like low self-worth, overly self-protective behaviour, difficulty in building trust, overly self-critical and other deep-rooted emotional issues.
By regressing to these past events that continue to influence an unhelpful emotional or behavioural pattern, we can discover, discuss and release the associated negative emotions and the potential misconceptions that may no longer have any relevance for their lives today, allowing the participants to regain power over their lives.
Past Life Regression Hypnotherapy
When emotions, symptoms do not point to current life issues, Past Life Regression Hypnosis can be helpful in finding insights for unhelpful thoughts and behavioural patterns, the source of fears and phobia, the source of unexplained physical ailments, the source of attachments to people, places and objects, the karmic path with certain people, and release the energy that no longer serves them.
The experience often leads to a deeper understanding of blocks from the past that the participants can begin to clear and bring to resolution, allowing them to find inner peace and meaning for this incarnation.
Note: A stand-alone Past Life Regression Hypnosis session is a 2.5 hours experience. It can also be included as part of a treatment plan if approrpriate.
Your first consultation session will cover your presenting issues in details, agreement on Treatment Goals and Treatment Plan (no. of sessions required), with a brief hypnosis training.
The number of sessions required depends on the presenting issues, treatment goal(s) and the progress/response of individual client. It usually ranges from three to eight sessions, inclusive of the first consultation session.
Each session generally takes around 1.5 hours.
