Hypnotic Regression

Hypnotic Regression is one of the most powerful techniques at a Hypnotherapist’s disposal. It enables me to guide a client back to an important prior event or trauma and explore their memories, thoughts and feelings about it. With my help the client can reframe any negative feelings and perceptions of the past to enable progress towards the client’s objectives today.

It can allow clients to find the cause of their current issues such as phobias, unwanted habits, behaviours or routines and eliminate the effects of their past traumas. When clients are hypnotised, they are in a relaxed state that allows for their subconscious mind to be accessed. And it here that the behaviours and habits that people exhibit are rooted and controlled. Often these behaviours and habits continue to be repeated even if they are no longer necessary or useful. Hypnotic regression allows clients to purge their unnecessary behaviours and move forward.

Recently Davina McCall (English television presenter best known for presenting the reality show Big Brother in the UK) took part in the Diary of a CEO with Steven Bartlett podcast. During her appearance she shared she experience with a Hypnotherapist using Hypnotic Regression and how it changed her life. Previously she had struggled with drug and alcohol abuse and fear of abandonment.  Interestingly, she didn’t seek help for these issues, but to check whether she was claustrophobic.

As part of the session the Hypnotherapist used a regression technique to take her back to when she was four years old. And it was here that she discovered the roots of many of her life defining behaviours. She had been left with her grandmother so her mother could go on holiday, but after sometime is dawned on her that her mother would not be coming back. This had caused a fear of abandonment and feeling that she had to please people otherwise they would not like her or leave her. The Hypnotherapist was also able to guide her through the process of healing the emotional scars that this traumatic event had caused. She had said in the past, “I think probably the whole reason why I wanted to be on television was to show my mum that she was making a mistake. That I was amazing. Look at me, I’m worth something. Look at me”.

I think this is a fascinating case of Hypnotherapy helping to improve the quality of life of someone. I have added Davina to my collection of people who have used regression to explore the past. Most of these are people who have explored past lives, which is also possible with this technique. Her page contains more details of her experience and how the hypnotherapy worked for her.
