Generally, there is a misguided notion that psychotherapy and counselling are meant for abnormal and mentally disturbed individuals. This is far from the truth. Psychotherapy is a very effective tool as an adjunct in the treatment of psychological abnormalities. But its real aim is to create in the individual, a better personal adjustment and growth in all spheres of his / her life. This is achieved by stimulating him to exploit his own hidden potentials and use more of his inner resources.
According to WHO, a whole individual is one who is physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthy. It is here that psychotherapy and counselling steps in. It aims at making you a whole and healthy individual, inside-out, who knows his role and holds his rightful place in family and in society.
We help mould in the individual an integrated personality by developing and strengthening his ego and self-esteem. This is an educational process through which he comes to understand his own strength, abilities and values. He is thus elevated from a paralyzing state to an enabling state, thereby becoming a healthier individual capable of confronting the various problem thrown at him by life, and finding solutions to them by applying his own knowledge and methods.
Hypnosis literally means 'sleep', or a sleep-like state, where an individual's mind is highly susceptible to positive suggestions. However, a lot of stigmas have come to be attached to hypnosis due to lack of proper awareness. Kerala Hypnotists' Association, and in extension this clinic, aims to remove such misconceptions by educating the public about its potential and high therapeutic value.
It is said that we utilize only about 3 to 4% of our inner resources. Hypnosis is a wonderful method by which one can unlock the hidden potentials of the subconscious mind, thereby releasing this inner resource. In the hands of a trained therapist, this, coupled with other psychotherapeutic methods and positive imagination, can become an effective tool in producing results normally unattainable through conventional methods.
As hypnotherapy aims at (and works with) addressing the subconscious rather than the conscious mind, results produced by it can be very effective, ranging from increasing memory and confidence to the treatment of deep - rooted personality disorders. Recent studies have proved that as an adjunct, it is highly recommended in treating even chronic somatic disorders.
In this clinic, we use hypnosis to enhance the effect of various psychotherapeutic methods, by aiming it at the subconscious, rather than the conscious levels of the mind. We also teach individuals the art of self-hypnosis and application of this science to change themselves into better human beings, thereby help make their life more meaningful and enjoyable.
