Hypnosis after effects

Hypnosis after effects
Hypnosis, otherwise referred to as trance is basically a consciousness state which differs from reality. During hypnotic state, the mind gets to respond to suggestions and act accordingly to them. For this reason, hypnotherapy is used as a technique for getting rid of compulsive behaviors and unwanted habits such as smoking. 

Hypnotherapy must be applied by an authorized practitioner, typically referred to as the operator. In essence, the practitioner plays the crucial role of ensuring that the subject doesn’t suffer from adverse after effects which can have other undesirable consequences. While hypnosis is known to represent a rather natural mind state, the technique is not immune from side effects especially when applied for personal reasons. Some of the after effects that are associated with hypnosis are highlighted here below. 

Increased level of suggestibility among subjects is common especially during the first stages of hypnosis process. During this time, the suggestibility state remains at a relatively heightened level and the operator should be very careful when handling the client in such a condition. It is recommended that the practitioner doesn’t imply or state any idea which might hinder the subject from achieving his goals. A good practitioner should take advantage of this time to deliver useful suggestions about self esteem and success. The person being hypnotized will carry the positive thoughts forward during the days and months which fall. This is the time in which after effects of hypnosis can be transformed to be useful to the subject. 

Normally, hypnosis is a great experience especially when it is able to dissolve the emotional blocks of the subject. However, after getting out of the process, there are some people who tend to feel emotionally close to their operator. In fact, some subjects feel that hypnosis is a very meaningful experience that they undergo with their operators and might stay bonded to them for the rest of their lives thereafter. Nevertheless, if the operator allows extensive contact between him and the subject, the bonding could be in appropriate and such side effects might be undesirable. As such the hypnotist is required to always remain as professional as possible during and after the hypnosis therapy.

Abreaction is another side effect of hypnosis characterized by an intensive outburst of the emotions especially when a repressed idea or event is released suddenly. Another not so good after effects of hypnosis is where the subject adopts negative attitudes from the hypnotist which can impact undesirably on his after life.
