Winning Strategy with Hypnosis CoachingJan 27, 2023
Hypnosis Plus Coaching: Fast & Effective Solutions
Hypnosis is a proven method in therapy to help people overcome problems and change their lives for the better.
Hypnosis continues to gain traction in health care as rapid, safe, and effective in multiple arenas including cancer care and emergency medicine.
Even for everyday problems, combining hypnosis alongside powerful coaching techniques, change happens unconsciously and completely.
In hypnosis-coaching change happens quickly, and in multiple contexts of your life.
When we blend coaching skills and hypnosis all the sudden deeply rooted problems, fears or blockage resolve more easily, rapidly, and effectively than without using hypnosis. This coaching style, called hypnosis-coaching, creates a mind-set shift.
This shift establishes more positivity, resourcefulness, and choices for the person in order to achieve the result they desire.
Resources and competencies, aka the "solutions" to the problem, are suddenly “at the ready” for people when using hypnosis. In fact, they are usually present in the unconscious part of the mind all the while; the hypnosis-coach simply connects the participants to them.
When hypnosis occurs alongside a coaching model, we speed success up. Individuals suddenly change, tap into resilience, or even connect with the body's natural healing processes.
These techniques often come from the knowledge of neurolinguistic programming (NLP). By using the models of excellence in behavioral therapy and areas of psychology, NLP dips into how the mind works and how it can make change happen in areas of the people's life, quickly.
It can bypass the talk therapy we might be more accustomed to receiving for solving problems.
What actually is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a method to place yourself, or to guide a client, into a focused state of awareness and allow for access to the unconscious realm of the mind. We often assume that the hypnotized person falls into a deep sleep - but this is wrong! In fact, brain research shows that the person also under hypnosis still awake and is in a state of complete relaxation. The attention of the mind becomes directed to something specific. I describe it akin to meditation, which relaxes the mind; hypnosis changes the mind when in the relaxed state.
Hypnosis as a recognized therapeutic method, in fact,
Humans have used hypnosis as an effective healing approach all over the world for thousands of years.
And this is still the case today: therapy with or through hypnosis (also called Hypnotherapy)
is a scientifically founded, therapeutic technique. It creates change in problematic
behaviors, feelings, and thoughts by discovering their unconscious meanings and motivations.
The induction of hypnosis allows, for example, persistent worry thought patterns or mental blockages, uncomfortable experiences or emotions to emerge through a new perspective. This creates greater choice, empowerment, healthier lifestyle habits, realize limiting beliefs or recognizing previous decisions.
Hypnosis, both independently and in combination with other techniques, create positive changes and developments. For example, Cognitive-behavioral therapy methods combined with the use of hypnosis create faster and more consistent results.
Hypnosis vs. hypnosis-coaching: what's the difference?
Whether it is strictly a hypnosis session (hypnotherapy) or a hypnosis with coaching depends primarily on the desired outcome of the session and the reason the client is seeking help.
Hypnotherapy is - as the name suggests - a form of complimentary treatment and is primarily aimed at people with a health problems or illnesses that may have been diagnosed by a provider, such as chronic pain, persistent body symptoms (examples: irritable bowel syndrome, migraines), chronic conditions, addictive behavior choices (example: smoking), eating disorders, or sleeping problems.
In contrast, hypnosis-coaching is more of a training and consulting method which is aimed at a particular health problem -or- an everyday typical problem that is complex and chronic.
Hypnosis-coaching is therefore not solely necessarily about addressing health problems or illnesses, as would be the case with hypnotherapeutic applications.
Coaching is basically future- and solution-oriented. Therefore, the focus is on finding individual solutions for problems or conflicts.
A coach accompanies and guides the client to uncover professional, as well as personal, potentials, resources, goals and much more. In this way, the client should experience and learn how to approach problem situations themselves in the future. In short: The coaching is a help for self-help.
Why is hypnosis useful in coaching?
In a coaching session, the coach works out solutions to personal or professional problems together with his client. However, we find that the collected impulses and advice rarely translate into everyday life and actually do not solve the problem.
This is because this approach only addresses the logical and theoretical perspective of the client. This creates insufficient emotional access for the client -or- the coaching situations per se seem contrived and therefore not always realistic.
For example, if a client suffers from “white coat syndrome”, a needle phobia, or something as common as stage fright or test anxiety, it may be easy to find factual arguments why this fear is unfounded.
However, the greater challenge is for the emotional level (the unconscious mind) to accept the desired change.
Therefore, the rational or theoretical approach is no guarantee that in the next doctor visit, blood draw, public speaking, or exam situation the fear will be lessened.
This is where hypnosis-coaching comes into play and promises a more effective and holistic approach.
By accessing the unconscious parts of the mind and the emotions, we can identify certain problems more precisely and the solution strategies arise naturally and change sticks.
A hypnosis-coach can thus work specifically on the unconscious processes and sensations that occur in the client in their specific problem situation.
This solidifies change for those actual situations and a provides long-term solutions to problems and conflicts.
Application of hypnosis coaching
I use hypnosis in a very versatile way in coaching in order to access the feeling, thinking, or behavior in a person and to change the direction if needed.
Often, for example, it is about reducing fears, developing social skills, learning new skills, recognizing and using one's own strengths, or the bolstering up self-esteem. All are very useful in both professional and personal contexts.
By the way, hypnosis-coaches can also offer their clients methods of self-hypnosis practice. I will teach you how to put yourself in a state of complete relaxation without their guidance. Below I show you some of the main uses of hypnocoaching.
Personal development and self-worth
Hypnosis-coaching targets the personal development of the client by working out strengths, resources and abilities together.
Many people are not aware of their own strengths and therefore they go unused. Hypnosis-coaching enables people to find and selectively retrieve their resources at any moment.
Performance improvement and stabilization
In sport, top performances are often required: competitive athletes must be able to, to be at their best at the right moment and fade out everything unimportant.
Hypnosis can help athletes and high-performers to anchor techniques, strategies or patterns of action in the unconscious, so that these are, in competition situations, quickly and instinctively retrieved. Performance enhancement through hypnosis is not only relevant in sports but also relevant to professional contexts.
Stress management and balance
It is important in work-life balance to deal with stress. Here, too, hypnosis-coaching offers various approaches and techniques to help clients tap into resilience and teach them how to deal successfully with stress.
With the strategies, they find it easier to cope under pressure. This also prevents the well-known burnout syndrome.
Hypnosis-coaching at work
Hypnosis-coaching at work goes beyond just stress. It can also help to prepare important presentations, create events, decide, manage everyday work, and shed general fears and insecurities - for example, the fear of speaking in front of many people.
In the executive suite, hypnosis-coaching is useful to use solution strategies and to make unconscious potentials usable.
Habit changes: stopping or starting what you want, now.
Hypnosis-coaching can help to break bad habits, for example, to quit smoking or stop procrastinating. In hypnosis-coaching, the underlying causes of the habit are determined, underlying beliefs examined, and then anchored differently and healthier.
After such coaching, many clients feel liberated inside and no longer need to smoke. Also the withdrawal symptoms, which are typical in smoking cessation, often turn out to be less.
Methods and techniques in hypnosis-coaching
The methods used in hypnosis-coaching depends primarily on the client's goal and concerns. Therefore, hypnosis-coaching usually begins with a very detailed personal history.
A detailed history may take a couple hours or more. I am uncovering how you think, what necessarily what you think. Based on this, suitable techniques and the exact procedure is determined.
Particularly important here is we are developing "hypnotic rapport"- connecting and trusting. A familiar and relaxed relationship ensures that the unconscious mind of the client is more receptive to the suggestions of the coach.
This significantly increases the chance of success.
Hypnotic induction refers to the process in which the client experiences guided hypnosis. For this there are various initiation techniques which are those aimed at achieving a state of deep relaxation.
These include visual (e.g. gaze fixation), acoustic methods (e.g. suggestive speech, certain sounds or speech melodies), or dialogical introductions, where the client goes into an imaged scenario.
Resource work is an essential component of hypnosis-coaching. This approach is based on the assumption that people have the most resources and competencies for problem solving within themselves.
Solution strategies therefore come from the coach process of bringing to light by them. Hypnosis illuminates the previously unconscious, unknown abilities, for example, by visualizing successful situations in the past.
Suggestions are an important means in hypnosis to induce, deepen or dissolve the hypnotic state. These are suggestions with which I guide the client towards a certain behavior.
For example, "You feel relaxed" is a direct and explicit suggestion. Indirect suggestions, on the other hand, are packaged in a larger context, such as a story.
Images and metaphors
Pictorial narratives, stories and metaphors provide good access to the unconscious mind. It is sentimental because emotions always accompany images and stories.
For example, hypnotists can specifically guide clients through a fantasy journey or the visualization of certain situations. This creates empowerment for times when psychosomatic symptoms are bothersome or for imagining places that give one strength.
Who benefits from hypnosis-coaching?
Hypnosis-coaching is basically suitable for anyone who desires a change in their lives whether on a personal or professional level. Hypnosis-coaching only works for people who are willing and able to engage in it - and that is not the case for everyone.
A coach who specializes in hypnosis can assist a client to embrace hypnosis at a level that is comfortable for them. And over time, with practice, and diligence, clients can use self-hypnosis and other techniques to be self- sustaining.
