Hypnosis and NLP General Topics

Hypnosis and NLP General Resource Concept Image

This set of resources offers basic and introductory level exposure to terms you may have come across as you've researched about hypnosis, hypnotists, hypnotism and related topics. There is nothing mystical about hypnosis. It works with our subconscious brain which science for decades has proven controls not just our everyday activities but keeps us alive.

There is also plenty of research and studies conducted on the benefits of hypnosis to help speed medical recovery and as an adjunct to medications and other therapies. Articles in our resource section will provide links to this research so you can read them yourself.

If there is anything mystical about hypnosis it's we still don't understand the power of our subconscious mind, and therefore as we extend the boundaries of our knowledge we move into the unknown and this is when we start to incorrectly use the labels mystical and magical.

As you'll find reading through the articles and posts below we encounter difficulty in changing, even when we want to, because of the "baggage" we bring "to the table." Getting out of our own way and internal resistance is a "bottleneck" to change, and the reason why it's difficult and demanding work, and why people seek out the aid of a professional hypnotist to get them going.

Begin with the first six articles to get basic understanding of hypnosis, its history, and how it can help you overcome and expand your current beliefs, and also help you set realistic expectations for how it can personally help you. Move on to the NLP and Mind Body Connection related articles once you feel ready and cover topics that begin to dwell deeper into how our mind connects to our body, and the importance of our beliefs and habits, and how what we say to ourselves plays a vital role in the outcomes we can obtain.

Here at Free At Last Hypnosis we offer a number of services and programs using techniques while under hypnosis, including NLP, to help our clients make significant changes, and these include our signature stop smoking programs and weight loss services.
