Different Types of Hypnosis and Hypnotists
By Helen A. Bramow, MA, BCH, HHP, ND, CNC, MHt 703-851-7954
- Published on August 2015 in Your Health Magazine
When I was first trained in hypnosis, I was told that there were only two kinds of hypnosis. The first kind is basically used to change old habits like smoking, weight control, phobias, anxiety and many other things. It usually takes several visits and only requires a light kind of induced trance. The second kind of hypnosis is generally used in past life, future or just further back in this life, as well as period between lives. This kind requires an induced deep trance, where we can correspond with the deeper facets of the mind.
The mind really works kind of like a computer and runs usually on a type of autopilot, using preprogrammed responses. Our goal usually in hypnosis is to change those preprogrammed responses to the types of responses that the client wants. Many times this will create changes in their lives, which is why they want the service. There are really many kinds of hypnosis and many different kinds of training and, of course, many kinds of hypnotists and hypnotherapists. Many specialize in certain areas of hypnosis, as I do myself. However, the truth is that when you are able to induce trance, you are simply able to induce trance, and this really is the business of all hypnotists and hypnotherapists, no matter what brand of hypnosis they are practicing.
This of course, makes it very confusing to the general public as to who’s services they really need. Many times people who need assistance are in a state of confusion and they are seemingly unsure as to what exactly they need. Take, for instance, a client who thinks they want hypnosis, but what they really want and need is deep healing work. But, perhaps they are unfamiliar with healing work overall, and so they schedule and/or request hypnosis instead. In reality, hypnosis IS simply a very deep form of healing work, perhaps even the deepest available, but you must get these services from someone who is a healer and a hypnotist. Healing work and hypnosis are best as combined services, however, not many hypnotists are trained also as healers, and vice versa.
When hypnotists offer a free ‘pre-consult’ phone call, it is helpful because the client should be able to figure out whether or not they offer the right services, at the time, for them. Otherwise, you might just pay for something that is expensive and not very beneficial. There is no ‘one-size fits all’ in hypnosis, in fact it quite the opposite. You usually get what you pay for, but not always, and the type of service can be very different depending upon who you choose to do business with. It is certainly a very confusing area for most of the public. Referrals don’t always help either, because it is a very personal service, and what is great for one person may not be right at all for the next.

According to psychologist Maren Cordi “the results may be of major importance for patients with sleep problems and for older adults. In contrast to many sleep-inducing ??drugs, hypnosis has no adverse side effects”. Basically, everyone who responds to hypnosis could benefit from improved sleep through hypnosis.

Hypnosis for Dentistry
“Freedom From Dental Fear” by Connie Hambrock,Ph.D, CCHT, CI, CMT 571-331-9208
Many people have great fears related to going to the dentist, sitting in the dental chair, having their teeth cleaned, getting a shot, hearing, smelling and feeling the drilling and filling of their teeth. Some of these fears may be well founded from painful past experiences, but, some times the sources of these fears are unrelated to actual dental experiences or incidences. No matter what the cause, the feelings of panic and fear can be a very real visceral experience for that person.
For some people just reading that first paragraph may have been a difficult experience, bringing up stressful feelings and memories. The ability to cause an emotional response and relaxation through the use of words is what Hypnosis is based on. If Hypnosis or HypnoTherapy is able to cause negative feelings, then know that it can also cause positive reactions as well.
The ability to refocus the mind and therefore refocus the experience to a positive result, to meditate on a pleasant thought, sight, smell, or sound can completely change the anticipation of an activity from one of fear and stress to one of pleasure and relaxation. This is true for almost any event in your life. For example, your experience of anticipation when going to a horror film will be completely different from your experience of anticipation of going to a comedy film. Your anticipation and expectation of the event, colors your experience of that event. With the help of a hypnotherapist your experience of going to the dentist can be a pleasant, safe and rewarding visit.
In the past I had a huge fear of going to the dentist, any dentist. I would only make an appointment when I was in great pain and would sit in the waiting room as if I was waiting for my execution. I would walk back to the dental chair noticing everything on the walls along the way, just to keep my mind off of the pain that I expected to experience. I would sit in the dental chair and grip the arms with white knuckles before the dentist would even enter the room. Then as soon as the drill would turn on, I would feel the tears well up in my eyes. I would close my eyes and feel the tears stream down the sides of my face and fill my ears. All this would happen before the dentist had even touched me. My anticipation of the future event caused my heart to race and my adrenaline to pump so quickly that I would need at least double the normal amount of pain killer before he could drill. Then I discovered how HypnoTherapy could help.
I was already a Hypnotherapist, but, it took me being a demonstration model on stage at a conference to get me to see what I was doing to myself. I learned a technique of release of the past fear and pain. These techniques assured me that my future need not be the painful anticipated experience, I had always created for myself. Since then, I have had many dental appointments, many of my teeth replaced with caps and all of my deep fillings replaced.
Now, when I sit in the waiting room, I breathe and go to a place of great calm and relaxation. As I walk to the room I hardly notice the hall, I sit in the dental chair and I am able to be fully relaxed. I close my eyes and I hear the dental assistant laugh because I’m snoring and she thinks I am asleep. The truth is that my deep relaxation has allowed my soft palate to drop causing me to snore. I am still aware of everything being done and said and I respond to commands such as “open wide” and “turn this way”. I no longer feel pain when they use a needle, or panic when they start to drill.
I am thankful that as a Hypnotherapist I have been able to share the lessons I’ve learned with many clients and students that have had sever reactions to Doctors and Dental appointments in the past. They are now free from the fear of needles, teeth drilling, cleanings and even surgery.

Benefits of Hypnosis
by Tim Horn, PhD., Hypno Consult, 703-969-5791
It used to be when anyone heard the word “hypnosis,” they pictured the swaying pocket watch and imagined the subject under the command of the hypnotist, maybe even clucking like a chicken. Today, hypnosis has become much more mainstream and has earned its rightful place as effective, efficient method for overcoming the everyday obstacles life offers.
What Happens During Hypnosis?
Hypnotherapists aren’t practicing some unknown kind of voodoo. In fact, while hypnotized, patients simply feel extremely relaxed, as if the stress is melting away. It’s in this relaxed condition that our state of consciousness shifts. The analytical, literal part of the brain is moved to the side, while the emotional and habit based side of the brain’s awareness is heightened. This allows the foundational subconscious mind to emerge.
Why is this important? Our instincts and deeper programming exist in our subconscious mind. Tapping into this area allows us to affect deep change in behaviors and beliefs that result in changes in our day to day lives.
How Is Hypnosis Helpful?
Hypnotherapy has been proven successful with a variety of life’s challenges.
- Weight loss – In these sessions, the client is empowered to maximize their enjoyment of healthier, better foods giving them a feeling of fullness after they eat an appropriate amount. Eating less causing steady, safe results and lessens cravings.
- Quit smoking – Hypnotherapy sessions for smoking cessation reprogram the brain to understand the true nature of smoking. You’ll eliminate the links to the habit, re-establish yourself as a nonsmoker and end your connection to tobacco as part of your life.
- Stress relief – Hypnosis provides incredible stress relief. Sessions recondition the subconscious to recognize stress, develop an understanding of the true underlying issues and redirect the subconscious to a plan of attack. Patients leave feeling relaxed and empowered.
- Study habits – Many students need a boost in confidence and a reduction in anxiety in order to perform at their best. Hypnosis can tap into the power of your brain, reduce test and quiz anxiety, create triggers to maximize relaxation in school, increase the capacity to recall information and improve your ability to focus in all areas of life.
- Sleep improvement – Few things can affect our holistic lives more than lack of sleep. Hypnosis establishes proper sleep patterns, balances the subconscious and conscious minds during sleep, creates positive expectations and potentially reduces dependency on medications.
- Pain control – Our bodies have natural healing properties that can be tapped into speeding and maximizing the healing process.For pain management, hypnosis helps release the natural healing properties within everyone, prepares the body to deal with medical procedures and eliminates or decreases chronic pain issues.
- Bruxism – This is the act of grinding your teeth while sleeping. It can lead to sleep issues, TMJ, headaches and damage to the teeth all the way to the root. Hypnotherapy sessions allow you to address the issues causing the tension/teeth grinding and stop the behavior.
These are the most common issues addressed by hypnosis, but don’t rule out its ability to help with additional challenges. A new beginning awaits.
