You may have heard or read about hypnosis. Perhaps you are interested in hypnosis in a private or professional context – and you would like to know how hypnosis works.

In this article, we look at how hypnosis works and what it can be used for.

You can find an explanatory video of me on YouTube to accompany the article. I am Hansruedi Wipf, owner and president of OMNI Hypnosis and author of “Hypnosis, Health and Healing the Natural Way”, published by Giger Verlag. The book is available in stores everywhere.

Supporting people with hypnosis – how does it work?

It’s no secret that hypnosis is one of the most popular and effective tools in a therapist’s toolbox. It is not for nothing that we have trained more than 16,000 people in the OMNI method in recent years, who now use it successfully in their practices, clinics, coaching, sport and elite sport.

I know that hypnosis works. But how? First and foremost, it is important to understand that we all experience the natural state of hypnosis on a daily basis – albeit unconsciously. In OMNI hypnosis training , we use Gerald F. Kein’s Mind Model to explain what happens during hypnosis. First things first: it’s far less spooky than you might think.
Because it’s actually quite simple: hypnosis is the state that bypasses the critical factor of consciousness and thereby establishes selective and acceptable thinking and feeling .

In simpler terms, this means that the conscious mind, with all its limitations, susceptibility to errors and its own logic, which does not correspond to the same logic as the logic of the subconscious, recedes into the background. As a result, the subconscious can come to the fore and direct communication with the subconscious becomes possible.

The critical factor, which is also described as a bouncer or firewall, withdraws and observes events passively from the sidelines.

Now it is possible to get to the core, to the cause or root of a problem – without being disturbed by the rational part of consciousness. A good hypnotist, hypnosis coach or hypnotherapist is guided by the subconscious mind to the cause during the hypnosis session and can neutralize it with specific techniques.

This is how hypnosis works and helps countless people all over the world to work causally and solve problems at the root.

Who can use hypnosis – and when?

People often ask: “Who can use hypnosis? And when is it useful to work with hypnosis?” Quite simply, almost anyone can learn hypnosis – and there are countless ways to use hypnosis methods.

In principle, it is of course important that a hypnotist, hypnosis coach or hypnotherapist is well and thoroughly trained . OMNI training, for example,is ISO 9001 certified, follows the same structure worldwide and delivers consistent quality and high-quality documentation for graduates .

Participants in the online training courses or our face-to-face courses gain practical knowledge, learn the basics of the connections between the subconscious and consciousness and are able to work with people. We attach great importance to this!

Our courses are attended by doctors, therapists of all kinds, alternative practitioners, members of the medical and nursing professions, as well as managers and people interested in alternative methods.

One important component of the training is the same for everyone: a hypnotist, hypnosis coach or hypnotherapist does not replace a doctor! They do not make a diagnosis and do not prescribe medication.

It is not a miracle healer or a substitute for medication, vaccinations or traditional therapies. BUT: As a supplement to classic forms of the state-recognized medical professions, it is conceivable and even sensible to consult a well-trained hypnotherapist.

The scope for using hypnosis is wide:

OMNI hypnotherapists use hypnosis for a variety of complaints and challenges. They use hypnosis as a tool in their practices, clinics and with their clients:

  • Insomnia and sleep problems
  • Fatigue and exhaustion
  • Depressive moods
  • (Sports) injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Emotion control
  • Lack of motivation
  • Exam anxiety
  • Fears and phobias
  • Allergies
  • Addictions

This list can be continued almost indefinitely – it represents some of the symptoms that our graduates’ clients have been able to alleviate using hypnosis.

If you are interested in the successes you have already achieved with OMNI hypnosis, then take a look at our YouTube channel . You will find many examples there.

So let’s summarize:

It is conceivable, even sensible, to train in hypnosis as a doctor or therapist, in leadership or as a sports coach. Hypnosis can be used in many different areas. In hypnosis, our aim is to find and neutralize the cause.

In addition to our article on how hypnosis works:

If you are a professional and want to delve deeper into the subject, perhaps even consider using hypnosis in your practice, then take advantage of the free access to the OMNI Hypnosis Academy. There you will find the first 6 lessons of the hypnotist training without costs and purchase obligation and you can watch them on your PC or smartphone.

I will explain the most important terms in the hypnosis vocabulary and describe exactly which words are inappropriate and should be avoided in the context of hypnosis. You will then be introduced to the Gerald F. Kein “Mind Model”, which impressively demonstrates how hypnosis and the human mind work.

Now you know how hypnosis works, who can use hypnosis and when it makes sense to work with hypnosis – the only question that remains is when you too will start using hypnosis!
