If you think about hypnosis, surely the first thing that comes to your mind is a person with closed eyes, as if asleep, in an absolute state of relaxation and concentration. However, none of this occurs in the so-called conversational hypnosis, a therapy that has the same purpose as conventional hypnosis (the suggestion of the patient) but differs in technique. Then we tell you the essentials of this discipline.

You already know the power of words to influence others. By means of these, a person can modify the mood of his interlocutor, inspire him, motivate him, etc. A conveniently focused and articulated conversation has the ability to accomplish this and much more. See where we're going, right? This is the foundation of conversational hypnosis.Conversational hypnosis is based on the ability to hypnotize a person through conversation; of course, without understanding this type of hypnosis as a therapy in which the patient will enter a state of trance.Through this hypnosis, on the other hand, the person responds appropriately to the suggestions. You could say that she is "hypnotized"

What conversational hypnosis intends is to modify behaviors, thoughts, and ideas on the other hand, for this, it uses persuasion. To induce the person, the only tool that is used is the conversation itself, without a doubt, the most powerful resource of communication between people.For this therapy to be truly effective, the hypnotherapist must establish a close connection with the person and monopolize all their attention. This one, in fact, will immediately feel hooked on that conversation that, in appearance, is normal.

In addition to that harmony between the two, another fundamental element of conversational hypnosis is the use of hypnotic language, that is, the use of strategies capable of eliminating all resistance and blockages of the other person and allowing the necessary modifications to be made.Conversational hypnosis is much more familiar than we think. Who has not gotten so involved in a movie that has even been excited? The fields of advertising and politics also draw on these techniques.

There are many fields where conversational hypnosis can operate and, in fact, it has very interesting uses. As we have already explained, in this therapy the fact of hypnotizing a person refers rather to the way in which he accepts the instructions given by the hypnotherapist.In a normal conversation that can occur on any occasion, then a professional conversational hypnosis would be able to influence a person in an important way.Thus, this therapy is not only beneficial to help people to incorporate new healthier routines, to treat mental disorders or to overcome depressions, but its application goes further.

For example, knowing the processes of conversational hypnosis can be very effective for those who are often exposed to the public. In this case, it will provide resources to have more followers and gain more credibility.In business, meanwhile, conversational hypnosis can also become an ally, as it can provide tools to sell more customers or even to be more successful in negotiations.And, equally, mastering this art serves to improve communication with third parties. For example, applying conversational hypnosis can have interesting results in situations such as finding a partner or getting them to serve us faster in a store.
