“Quantum Hypnosis”: Hypnosis Mythbusting with Nicola Bryant!

Yesterday, we told you about an exciting new piece of programming: Nicola Bryant’s quantum hypnosis self-help session, available for the price of an autograph to a limited number of attendees! But we know you probably have lots of questions about the panel, what it does, and what it’s for. We’ve asked Nicola to help us bust a few hypnosis myths for us, so you know exactly what’s in store this year!


There are many strange things written about hypnotherapy. Indeed when I see it portrayed in movies and TV shows I am often horrified. It is easy to form misconceptions in the world of the stage hypnotherapist. This is not the world of clinical hypnotherapy. This is pure entertainment. The world of clinical hypnotherapy is the road to self-discovery; a well respected practice. So let’s debunk some of these silly myths:


“What if I lose my mind and end up doing something embarrassing I don’t want to do?”

At no point will you lose control of your mind. A hypnotherapist simply makes suggestions. If you don’t agree with them or even if you don’t understand them, your subconscious will automatically reject them. Hypnosis cannot force anyone to do anything they don’t want to do. That includes giving up smoking etc. If your partner has sent you for hypnotherapy to give up smoking and you don’t want to give it up you won’t. You have to want the suggestion the hypnotherapist is making. It may however be something that has held you back, through fear, in your waking life, that you realize you truly want and hypnotherapy can help you unlock your courage and your true desire.


“What if I am hypnotized and I can’t wake up? Isn’t hypnotherapy dangerous?”

Hypnotherapy is very safe. Many people in fact reach states of heightened consciousness during hypnosis. Often people report an increased sense of hearing. If a fire alarm went off you would automatically be able to wake up and leave the building.


“There’s no proof that hypnotherapy works.”

This common myth is easily debunked. Hypnotherapy’s effectiveness has been proven many times. It’s supported by the BMA since the 1800s. American Medical Association and British Psychological Society have officially supported hypnotherapy since the 1950s.There are a huge variety of scientific and medical organizations that have independently endorsed hypnotherapy as a valid and successful form of treatment. (British Medical association, British Psychology Society, American Medical Association, American Psychological Association)


“You need to be a weak minded person to be hypnotised”.

Everyone who chooses to be can be hypnotized. In fact intelligent people are easier to hypnotize because with their increased intelligence there is a naturally more open and enquiring mind.


“Hypnosis is an unnatural state and maybe linked to the dark arts.”

Hypnosis or more accurately, a trance state, is something that humans experience naturally each and everyday, and is perfectly safe. Most people experience ‘Environmental Hypnosis’ while watching at the movies or watching TV, when engrossed in a good book or while driving on the highway. Most people are also in a trance state just before falling asleep every night and waking every morning. Hypnotherapists are not psychics. They do not have ‘special powers’. The power lies in the specific subconscious mind of the client, which contains a vast amount of valuable information and their individual dynamic personal history. The more creative you are and the more you are able to concentrate the more amazing the results may be. It is the access to this ‘subconscious library’ that leads to self-discovery and makes hypnotherapy a transformational process.


“Hypnosis is a miracle cure.”

Hypnosis is a relatively quick method of making real and permanent improvements but there is no such thing as a one-time “Hypno Miracle Cure”!


More about Quantum Hypnosis:


Using my ‘Quantum Hypnosis’ and ‘time travel’ I have seen wonderful transformations but it is always relative. If you break the habits of a lifetime of say 45 years but this takes you 2 or even 5 years is that fast or slow? As many people have said “ You cannot judge another’s journey until you have walked in their shoes.” To that individual the change of direction may still seem ‘miraculous’. It may be a path to somewhere they could not have reached without tapping into the riches of their own subconscious.  However every individual makes progress at his or her own rate. There is no judgement.


When we think of the word quantum, especially those of us sci-fi fans who remember “Quantum Leap” we think of something huge. But Quantum is the Latin word for amount and, in modern understanding, means the smallest possible discrete unit of any physical property, such as energy or matter.


Let us imagine all you are doing is walking from your home to the nearest store. If you are 1 degree out you may end up at a different store. If you are navigating the world you could end up at a different country. If this is your life imagine what difference a small change in direction may have on your life journey. Places you may reach. Places you may sail past and never visit.


For me Quantum Hypnosis can facilitate small changes that have a huge impact on your life journey.
