Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Courses

Hypnosis can treat a variety of problems including weight loss, depression, smoking, anxiety, pain, sexual dysfunction, trauma, phobias, physical healing, self-esteem issues, bad habits, and many other issues.

The symptoms of your limitations become evident in the form of overeating, anxiety, self-sabotage, phobias, and uneasy feelings. Sometimes you know you want to change and exactly what you need to change. The reason why you’re unable to follow through or make the necessary changes is that your behaviours are programmed in your unconscious mind.

The concept of hypnosis is to help you bypass your conscious mind and gain access to your unconscious mind where your attitudes, emotions, values, beliefs, and the root cause of your habits and behaviors lie. Hypnosis is a very powerful tool that can be used intentionally to enable you to seek out and find the origin of your limiting habits and behaviors.

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an altered state of highly focused consciousness that is characterized by heightened relaxation, focused attention, and suggestibility. This artificially induced altered state of awareness is meant to help subjects focus very carefully on one thing so that by default, they’ll be less focused on other things. 90% of the time, human behaviors result from programs that run from their unconscious minds. If we can control our unconscious minds, we can be able to eliminate or modify existing values, assumptions, or limiting behaviors. As a result, we can create or strengthen new resourceful strategies and behaviors. The conscious mind is the part that you have access to and is in your conscious awareness. Hypnosis can help you create a very relaxed state of inner concentration and highly focused attention. The technique can also be used to improve behaviors, improve sleep, reduce chronic pain, or reduce some symptoms of depression. This practice has been used for centuries to create and facilitate positive changes.
How Does It Work?

When clients are hypnotized, they experience an altered state of consciousness and are said to be in a trance. This means that they are shifting their focus away from their conscious day-to-day world to focus their thoughts on their inner world. This is not mind-control but something that happens naturally when we lose ourselves in things we love, for example, a good book or movie.
When people are fully conscious, their minds are on alert dealing with things that are happening around them, they’re constantly taking in information and analyzing everything around them. On the other hand, when in a trance, their conscious mind drifts away from their present moments. Being in a trance helps you to relax and block out distractions. When you’re more relaxed, you’re able to access your unconscious mind and bypass your analytical and critical conscious mind.

What Happens During a Visit To the Hypnotherapist?

The hypnotherapist should clearly explain to you what hypnosis is and how it works. Dr. Alireza Sharifi offers hypnotherapy courses in Toronto where we take a deep dive into the topic. He will take your history and will assess conditions that need to be addressed. He will then take you through relaxation techniques, using suggestions and a series of mental images intended to relieve your symptoms and change your behaviours. You may also be taught the basics of self-hypnosis and additional learning materials to help reinforce what you learned during your first visit.
Below are various stages of hypnosis:

  1. Becoming relaxed
  2. Returning to usual awareness
  3. Reframing the problem
  4. Reflecting on the experience
  5. Responding to hypnotic suggestions
  6. Dissociating or avoiding negative thoughts and feelings
  7. Becoming engrossed in images or words presented by a hypnotherapist

Hypnosis Course

Hypnosis, as a therapeutic tool, helps people to react and approach problems from a different point of view. Sometimes when something happens to us, we physically and emotionally react in a certain way. When the same thing happens again, we repeat the same reactions because they’re physically and emotionally attached to our memories. Sometimes these reactions lead us to unhealthy behaviors. The hypnotherapist will remind you about the events that led to your first reactions, separate your memories from your learned behaviors, and help you replace bad habits with good ones. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis helps your body relax, lowers your blood pressure, lowers your heart rate, and alters various types of brain wave activity. Hypnotherapy helps your conscious mind to become less alert and your subconscious mind more focused. This helps people to be highly responsive to suggestions. However, some people respond better to hypnotic suggestions than others.
