thousands of years of human e&perience but also hundreds of years of clinical case
study and e&periment. #onversational hypnosis incorporates hypnosis techniues

How !oes Conversational Hypnosis Work"
5o how does hypnosis work and why, in particular, is conversational hypnosis such a
potent techniue3 In order to answer this uestion we first need to understand how
hypnosis works. Therefore we need to know how the mind functions and why
hypnosis has such an effect upon it.
Imagine that the mind is like a layered pyramid. The top layer, at the sharp end of our
daily activity, is the conscious mind. This part of our mind enables us to concentrate
upon everyday tasks such as writing, driving or reading. It is the decision making part
of the mind, and is the part of our selves that interacts with the outside world. If we
are walking down the street and the person walking towards us appears to be on a
collision course it is our conscious mind that makes the necessary decision to either
walk around the person or say 6e&cuse me7 and continue on our path.
The ne&t layer is our subconscious mind. This is like the hard drive of a computer. It
stores all the information we need in order to make 6conscious7 decisions. If you ride
a bicycle you soon forget the actual physical process of being able to balance, peddle,
brake and so on. Your conscious mind is free to concentrate on the process of
avoiding ha-ards and finding your route.
$owever you haven0t forgotten the basic principles. If you did, every time you got on
the bike would be like the first. 8inding your way would be the least of your
problems. It is because we subconsciously remember how to ride a bicycle that we can
concentrate on other aspects. If we didn0t subconsciously understand that turning the
handlebars makes you go around corners we wouldn0t get very far.
#onversational $ypnosis %nveiled
The final, baseline layer is the unconscious mind. This controls our basic functions
such as breathing or heart rate. 2e have no direct control over our unconscious mind.
If we are frightened by something our unconscious mind is unable to rationali-e this.
It only knows that we are frightened and responds automatically by telling our
adrenal gland to produce more adrenaline in order to prepare us for either 6fight or
flight.7 5imilarly, if we are happy, our unconscious mind instructs our brains to
release more endorphins to increase our pleasure. The unconscious makes no
4udgement of our e&perience it simply responds to stimuli and delivers the
appropriate instruction to our bodies various components.
Therefore we can see that the subconscious is
perhaps the most influential part of the human
mind. It is both e&tremely well organi-ed and has
the capacity to store seemingly limitless amounts
of information. !very e&perience we have is
memori-ed, filed and retrieved when we need it.
The understanding and knowledge, gained from a
lifetime of e&perience, is used by the
subconscious to formulate our belief systems. It
is where we retain our sense of morality and holds the concepts that actually shape
our view of the world.
9any of these beliefs will be readily available to our conscious minds. These tend to
be the concepts and ideas that we change more often, such as our political or
theological views. $owever others reside deeper in our subconscious and are less
accessible. These are generally more closely linked to our emotional responses such
as our self image or attachments to others. They remain powerful controlling factors for
our behavior but, under normal circumstances, we are relatively powerless to do
anything about them.

How Can Conversational Hypnosis Help People"
8or e&ample, let0s assume that you are frightened by spiders.
*erhaps you had a childhood e&perience with a spider that
scared you. :s a child, you didn0t know whether or not the
spider was dangerous and your unconscious mind delivered a
big dose of adrenaline to your body, increasing your an&iety
and preparing you to either run away screaming or suash it.
Your subconscious stored this e&perience. This, relatively
minor incident, could have been one of the most powerful
e&periences you ever had at such a young age. Therefore a
fear of spiders was adopted by you subconsciously.
5ubseuently, as an adult, you may well have discovered that spiders are nothing to
be scared of. $owever subconsciously, even though you may have absolutely no
conscious memory of the original event, due to the emotional impact and unconscious
response that the childhood e&perience caused, you remain terrified of spiders.
You may be able to consciously control your reaction to spiders as an adult.
(onetheless, because the subconscious fear remains, the sight of a spider still
prompts the associated unconscious response. Basically your an&iety levels go
through the roof whenever one of our little, eight legged friends is about. 8or many
people this unconscious response, driven by the subconscious belief, is
overwhelming. They simply can not control their behavior. In e&treme cases this can
become a phobia 'arachnophobia+ with a significant impact upon lives.
$ypnosis, and especially conversational hypnosis, is such
an effective psychological intervention because it
enables communication with the subconscious mind.
By suggesting different ways of thinking about
problems to the subconscious, conversational hypnosis
makes it possible to change how we unconsciously
respond to an event or situation. Therefore, not only
can our behavior be changed but more importantly the
underlying emotional responses can also be addressed.
$ypnosis achieves this because we organi-e and file the information in our
subconscious using language. )anguage is the tool that enables us to orchestrate and
make sense of the raw information we store subconsciously. It enables us to construct
#onversational $ypnosis %nveiled
the filing system that we use to subseuently retrieve that information when we need
it. $ypnosis uses language to make subtle changes to that process. These changes can
ultimately have a profound effect. )earning how to use hypnotic language properly is
a skill that most of us are capable of learning. $owever conversational hypnosis has
taken this skill to a new and incredibly e&citing level. 5o why is conversational hypnosis
so effective in particular3
#onversational $ypnosis %nveiled
Why Is Conversational Hypnosis The Most #ffetive Tehni$ue"
The subconscious is analytical and maintains its
constructed beliefs wherever possible. This is an
important psychological defense mechanism called
the the 6critical factor.7 The critical factor is used
by us to balance new information against that
which we already have at our disposal. 8or
e&ample if I tell you that a submarine is a type of
car your critical factor will re4ect this as a false
statement. This is e&tremely important as
otherwise we would not be able to discern fact
from fiction and would believe any old nonsense. The 0critical factor0 is a hurdle that
hypnosis needs to overcome in order to effect change.
8or e&ample often people who are morbidly obese have e&tremely a pitiful self
image. They may well believe this as a result of childhood or lifelong e&periences of
poor treatment by others, especially other family members. This builds and reinforces
the subconscious belief that they are worthless and the subseuent low self esteem
depresses their mood. !ating, on the other hand, stimulates the pleasure areas of the
brain. Therefore, for someone who is normally low in self esteem and depressed in
mood, eating food with high sugar and fat content provides some temporary relief.
$owever, it also makes you fat. This then makes you unhealthy and can create a bad
body image. The cycle is self perpetuating.

It is rarely any use simply telling this person that they are not worthless, because the
subconscious critical factor is at odds with such statements. ;uite simply they don0t
believe it whenever anybody tells them that they are beautiful and valued individuals
as the subconscious instructs the conscious mind to re4ect any such statement. The
change that is necessary, in order for them to effectively take action to address their
unhealthy lifestyles, needs to be made at a subconscious level.
$ypnosis works be effectively distracting the critical factor thus allowing access to
the subconscious. This is achieved by focusing the conscious mind upon an activity,
ob4ect or, in the case of conversational hypnosis, a discussion. 2hen the conscious
mind is 0captivated0 in this way then the critical factor is less active and hypnotic
suggestion to the subconscious is possible. This process is called trance.
9any people believe that being in a trance is like being asleep. $owever trance is
#onversational $ypnosis %nveiled
actually a state where the conscious mind is fully occupied. It is in effect a state of
heightened awareness for the conscious mind.
2hilst a person is in trance the hypnotist can attempt
to ad4ust concepts and beliefs that may be stopping a
them from moving forward or managing a
problematic behavior. $ypnosis does this by
attaching positive suggestion to established ideas
through the use of imagery and metaphor. 8or
e&ample, in the case of the over.eater, hypnosis may
suggest that they imagine themselves at their correct
weight and envisage what it would be like to have a
healthy weight. This is reinforced by repeating the benefits of feeling fitter, looking
better and so on. %sing this sort of hypnosis techniue the hypnotherapist is able to
construct a better self image at a subconscious level and give the person the will
power to address their unhealthy lifestyle.
$owever, the problem with this kind of traditional hypnosis is that the person is
aware that they are being hypnoti-ed and has to initially give their permission for the
process to take place. Therefore this assumes that they recogni-e the problem in the
first place and, for many with underlying psychological obstacles, this is not the case.
In addition, because the hypnosis is 0agreed0 the persons critical factor is already
alerted. This creates the need for a deeper hypnotic trance and prolonged treatment.

#onversational hypnosis, on the other hand, does not reuire the person being
hypnoti-ed to be aware of the hypnosis. In fact, conversational hypnosis is at it0s most
effective precisely when the sub4ect is not consciously aware of what0s going on. This
is why it is often referred to as covert hypnosis and is both the reason why it is so
incredibly powerful and why many are suspicious of its use.
#onversational hypnosis uses the same
principles as other traditional hypnosis
methods but the techniues used are far
more effective. 8or e&ample, in traditional
hypnosis the trance is induced by use of an
ob4ect or even physical contact. This means
that the person being hypnoti-ed has to make
a conscious decision to be hypnoti-ed.
Therefore they are already, by definition,
anticipating hypnosis and are already
#onversational $ypnosis %nveiled
committed, to some e&tent, to wanting change in their lives. :t a subconscious level
they e&pect to be hypnoti-ed. Therefore any suggestions made will be accepted as
being part of the hypnosis process. #onseuently, at a later date, they will attach less
meaning to these suggestions. 2hereas the previously established patterns of
behavior will be given greater validity because they are felt to come from a 0genuine0
,n the other hand conversational hypnosis enables the hypnotist to make suggestions
to the person being hypnoti-ed of which they are completely unaware. #onseuently
these suggestions are far more likely to be adopted. There will be no subconscious
acknowledgment of the hypnosis process and any new, modified ways of thinking
will be given the same recognition as any other belief constructs. In effect, the person
being hypnoti-ed accepts the suggestions made under conversational hypnosis as
their own, personal thoughts.
The degree of suggestibility is much higher because the critical factor is barely
alerted at all. (ot only that but the trance induction process takes place through
normal conversation. This is a far more natural way for people to communicate and
therefore makes it easier for the hypnotist to establish a hypnotic connection 'or
rapport+. This further means that the depth of trance can be relatively less but can
achieve greater effect. This makes it easier to calibrate and sustain for longer periods
and, in turn, allows a greater fle&ibility for suggested change.

incredible tool for success.
#onversational hypnosis enables you to chat to
someone, uickly establish an emotional bond, talk
