Phobia Hypnotherapy






Dissociative tendencies and individual differences in high hypnotic suggestibility.


Introduction. Inconsistencies in the relationship between dissociation and hypnosis may result from heterogeneity among highly suggestible individuals, in particular the existence of distinct highly suggestible subtypes that are of relevance to models of psychopathology and the consequences of trauma. This study contrasted highly suggestible subtypes high or low in dissociation on measures of hypnotic responding, cognitive functioning, and psychopathology. Methods. Twenty-one low suggestible (LS), 19 low dissociative highly suggestible (LDHS), and 11 high dissociative highly suggestible (HDHS) participants were administered hypnotic suggestibility scales and completed measures of free recall, working memory capacity, imagery, fantasy-proneness, psychopathology, and exposure to stressful life events. Results. HDHS participants were more responsive to positive and negative hallucination suggestions and experienced greater involuntariness during hypnotic responding. They also exhibited impaired working memory capacity, elevated pathological fantasy and dissociative symptomatology, and a greater incidence of exposure to stressful life events. In contrast, LDHS participants displayed superior object visual imagery. Conclusions. These results provide further evidence for two highly suggestible subtypes: a dissociative subtype characterised by deficits in executive functioning and a predisposition to psychopathology, and a subtype that exhibits superior imagery and no observable deficits in functioning.

How to use hypnosis

Most people immediately think of hypnosis as being something involving a stage show. They think of people quacking like a duck or heating and onion or lemon and believing that it is something sweet. However, hypnosis is actually much more than that. When used by a qualified and talented hypnotherapist it can be used for a wide range of mental health, medical, and performance-oriented applications. Therefore, the primary uses of hypnosis are healing the body, healing the mind, and self-actualization. Medical applications of hypnosis include stress management and the direct influence of...

Why Change?

Much has been said about the desire to change. Indeed, this is the topic of many self-help experts, personal coaches, and even professional counselors, psychologists, and other psychotherapists. However, little is ever said about why a person would want to transform.

The first thing that I notice is that there is a universal desire for happiness. While many people will never be content – even if their situation is the envy of many others – generally when a person has something that is causing a high level of dissatisfaction in their life, then they develop an urge to become...

What is TMJ?

TMJ is the acronym for temporomandibular joint. Frequently people say that they have TMJ. However, what they actually mean is that they have TMD, which means temporomandibular disorder. The TMJ is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to temporal bone of the skull. TMD occurs when there are problems with the jaw, jaw joint, and the surrounding muscles. TMD can occur due to numerous causes. These include accidents, clinching or grinding the teeth, arthritis, or stress. While the use of hypnotherapy normally focuses on stress alleviation, it should not be ruled out as part of the...
