It’s been a long while since I wrote a similar article and many things have changed since. So here’s another guide to finding a good Hypnotherapist through online search in your local area.

The most common way we search for Hypnotherapists online is with keywords like Hypnotherapist in Chennai, Bangalore, or other places as necessary. The other method is looking up a local directory for Hypnotherapists or Past Life Regression Therapists in your city.

However, just because a hypnotherapist’s name appears in the top results does not necessarily mean he/she is the best hypnotherapist. It only means the hypnotherapist has got a good Search Engine Optimization (SEO) done. SEO is a set of tools and practises that ensures that your result appears in the first page of Google and other popular search engines. So the task of finding if the hypnotherapist is good enough still remains.

Website and Testimonials: Visiting the website or blog of the hypnotherapist will provide some information about the hypnotherapist but remember the content of the website or blog is always carefully thought out and well written. Mostly not even by the therapist. Testimonials could be of some help but always take them with a pinch of salt.

First Call: Try to talk with the therapist personally. If that is not possible, get an appointment for consultation and meet the therapist before you decide to undergo therapy. Your first impression counts.

Certification: Currently, in India, there are no legal certifications required for one to practise Hypnotherapy. However, a certification from a well-standing institute will at least make sure the hypnotherapist has had a formal training in both theory and practise of Hypnotherapy.

Experience: Find out how many years of practise he/she’s had. More importantly find out if the therapist has had any experience with issues similar to yours (yes that means you need to tell the therapist about your issue, even if briefly, in the first meeting or call).

Quality Time Spent: A therapist may spend only twenty minutes with you but if those twenty minutes have been spent in listening to your case or in offering sound counselling or therapy then you probably are in good hands. But if the therapist is extremely time-conscious to the point of being rude and ending therapy abruptly at the end of the allotted hour, perhaps you may need to change your therapist. Of course, as a client again, you must discuss your issue clearly and stop at that; not go round in circles repeating the same issue as if you are complaining with your family member. In such cases, therapists usually cuts you off, sometimes rudely too.

Misconception: No hypnotherapist can take your mind under control and extract truths from you. Any therapist claiming to do so is a sham and a liar. Get out of there before he/she proceeds to dish out more lies in order to make money out of you.

Rapport and Trust: The main question here is not if the hypnotherapist is good but if the hypnotherapist is good for you! In Hypnotherapy, as in the case of all successful therapies, the first all important requisite is to have a faith in the therapist. So a hypnotherapist might be have the best credentials, years of experience,  and may have come with best recommendations but if you cannot have faith in her/him or at least a good rapport, get out of that place!

At the end of the day, if you intuitively feel the therapist can heal you, just go ahead even if the therapist is not certified, or doesn’t have previous experience. Trust your intuition! For a hypnotherapist is always a guide, the actual healing is done by your subconscious.

Power of Manifestation – Part 1

We are hardly aware that nearly every experience we have in life is a product of our own manifestation. Unless we look back at the recurring patterns in our lives, we cannot really see the truth or be aware of the immense power we have at our disposal. Click on the title to read more…

Every thought of ours has a ripple effect!

Nearly everything that happens to us is our creation. On the outside we may believe circumstances or people around us are responsible for certain experiences we go through in life. Looking at a situation in isolation certainly portrays it so. However, if you just take a step back and look at the whole picture called ‘life’ the truth becomes apparent.

How is it that we continually become victims in certain situations? Some of us repeatedly find ourselves in financial crunches. Some of us inevitably become the scapegoat of office politics. Some of us are regular victims of bullying. Some of us end up in only bad relationships. Some of us always get caught in the traffic.

Isn’t it uncanny that nature, fate, or people around always know to pick on you? When you look at an isolated situation of your boss bypassing you for a promotion it certainly looks like he’s been playing politics. But when you look at the pattern of similar events in your life where you never received what you deserved in your career, isn’t that too much of a coincidence? What is the common factor in all of these events? You!

Our subconscious has the ability to manifest into reality what it believes to be true. A person who believes that tragedy follows every happy situation in life, his subconscious makes it true. How does it exactly achieve such feats may be explained by rationality alone. It is true that, through our body language, facial reactions, and our general interactions with the world around we communicate our beliefs and personality.

For instance, a person who suffers from low self-esteem and believes she will never get approval from her family will always put forward a body behaviour which invites disapproval. She manages to get herself into situations where she will be disapproved for her actions. She attracts relationships that will prove her beliefs right.

In the next post, let us examine how to use this power of manifestation to our advantage and learn to manifest what we want in life.
