HYPNOSIS IS SELF HYPNOSIS

Hypnosis and self-hypnosis are related, but not quite the same thing. Here's a breakdown of the key differences:

Hypnosis:

  • Involves a hypnotherapist guiding you into a relaxed, focused state of mind.

  • The hypnotherapist uses verbal suggestions to influence your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

  • You remain in control during hypnosis, but you're more open to suggestions than in a normal waking state.

Self-Hypnosis:

  • You induce the hypnotic state on yourself, without the help of a hypnotherapist.

  • You use techniques like deep relaxation, visualization, and positive affirmations.

  • Self-hypnosis can be a learned skill that takes practice to master.
