Q&A: How does hypnosis work?

Question by Alyssa G: How does hypnosis work?
I want to go to a psychiatrist about something I feel that I have repressed as a child. Does the hypnosis make you talk about the experience while your undergoing it? Or does he/she bring the memory back completely and once out of hypnosis you talk about it? Help? Please?

Hypnosis is really all about you and your feeling and power. The therapist will guide you through your sub conscious. I think it’s great to go through the Hypnotherapy once in while.

    Everyone experiences hypnosis differently. Remember, hypnosis is a tool … and whoever you go to will also use that tool differently.

    Now, there are two fundamentally different approaches that therapists will take to ‘repression’.

    One approach is to use “Regression” or what is also called “Hypno-analysis” – the application of the ‘tool’ of hypnosis in releasing negative emotions associated with a particular event. This is what you probably have in mind (and yes, a good therapist can help you recall a full event in detail – if you are ready for it – your subconscious mind might be protecting you for a good reason).

    The other approach takes the opposite viewpoint – they’ll say it’s not about what happened in the past that counts … but how you are representing the past in your mind right NOW. So the interventions that are derived from this viewpoint are very different – not about ‘digging up’ an old memory but about changing the meaning of the event by changing how you represent it in your mind.

    Both approaches are valid and stem from very different viewpoints about the source of a problem. I prefer the second approach. Both approaches can use hypnosis as a tool.

    I hope this provides a little clarity.

    You might talk about the experience while in a trance if you want to. Hypnosis is not a truth serum however, you can lie in hypnosis. You could recall some or all of the experience,depending on how it goes, and also talk about the memory after wards as well. Memory under hypnosis is not black and white or guaranteed to be 100% accurate.
