It was well reported recently all around the globe of The Duchess of Cambridge’s severe bouts of morning sickness that resulted in her being rushed into hospital.
Maybe what has not been as widely reported or indeed picked up on is that Kate used a form of Hypnotherapy while she was being cared for by the Doctors and Nurses at King Edward VII Hospital.
So what is Hypnotherapy and how did it help a royal mum?
When you mention hypnosis, the first thing that your mind conjures up is a magician hypnotizing an audience with the swinging of a pendulum. However, what you don’t know is that hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind. When you are under hypnosis, you will be able to relax.
So what exactly is hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is some simple hypnotic relaxation techniques which you can use to attain the state of hypnosis.
With hypnotherapy, you can visualise yourself becoming healthier, happier, and more confident you.
Hypnotherapy is a useful tool that you can use to get into your totally natural state of mind. Once you are in that mind frame, you will be able to clear your mind and answer all the internal questions that you have, such as what do you want your life to be? What kind of changes will you need to make for this to happen?
These kinds of questions are difficult to answer when you are feeling frustrated or stressed but once you are in that state of mind, it becomes clear to you.
Secondly, hypnotherapy can also be used to assist emotional and psychological disorders. The hypnotherapist will often try to access the client’s subconscious mind. It was this kind of Hypnotherapy that indeed helped Kate Middleton when she was struggling with her morning sickness.
This requires the client to be in a relaxed state and uses the client’s own imagination.
This may vary a wide range of techniques such as storytelling, metaphor, symbolism or direct suggestions for beneficial change.
The most important thing however is that the client should feel comfortable and at ease with their therapist.
Trust and mutual confidence will further enhance the healing process.
In reality, hypnotherapy is not only to assist people who are experiencing emotional and physiological disorder; virtually everybody can go for hypnotherapy. It can help you to kick off unwanted addiction, or stress problems, or anything that you are concerned about.
It could also be used as an adjunct to counselling techniques. It can be used to help in resolving relationship difficulties too.
Some of the defined and recorded benefits of Hypnotherapy include:
- It can supply regular, deep, rejuvenating relaxation to refresh your mind and body
- It can supply optimum conditions for your immune system to work with efficiency
- It can provide you positive suggestions and healing mental imagery
- It can provide you a break from the stress of illness
- It can make you feel better if you feel sick, tired or run-down
Hypnosis shouldn’t be used as a substitution for appropriate medical intervention, but rather as part of a full recovery program.
So, throw out your misconception about hypnotherapy. It was certainly helpful for the Duchess of Cambridge.
