Alchemical Hypotherapy is the Interactive Trance Process (By Abhita Helena-Foss)

Hypnosis is a word with many unwelcome connotations that do not apply to hypnotherapy, the most prevalent image today being of stage hypnotists. This kind of hypnosis, although very clever, bears no resemblance to the therapeutic kind.

We all experience some kind of hypnosis or trance state every day: watching TV, getting lost in a good movie or a book, or driving and suddenly realizing we cannot remember how we got from A to B.

Alchemical Hypnotherapy uses 'interactive trance', a state of deep relaxation where the client is always conscious and, most importantly, in control of what happens. Clients are free to accept or reject any suggestion I make; I am simply the travel guide on this journey, and although I may get a sense of what is happening at certain points, I rely on their feedback so that we can work together to resolve whatever situations arise.

To induce trance I simply use my voice. The client is usually lying down with their eyes closed, while I guide them through a body relaxation, then maybe a guided visualization, such as a walk through the woods or along a beach, and from that point we journey back to the root cause of the issue.

The wonderful advantage of hypnotherapy is that for the client there is nothing to do to get to the root of their problem, other than to sink into relaxation in order to allow the subconscious to take them to the most relevant place. As well as being easy and extremely pleasant, this can bypass all the speculation, talking, analyzing and working things out that the conscious mind is so fond of.

Alchemical Hypnotherapy helps clients find their inner healing resources within the subconscious mind and teaches them to work with these powerful resources every day.

Alchemical Hypnotherapy is based on the practices of the ancient Alchemists (converting the "lead" of our unconscious into the "gold" of wisdom and fulfillment), and uses hypnosis to access powerful internal resources and guides within the subconscious mind to affect lasting change.

Through Alchemical Hypnotherapy we are not dependent on the therapist, instead are empowered to access our own latent healing and transformative power within.
