What is hypnosis?

The word hypnosis is can describe a state or a process.

In Greek, the word “hypnos” translates to sleep, however, when it comes to hypnosis, this can be misleading. A hypnotic “sleep” is an altered state unlike normal sleep because it actually requires a relaxed, yet focused, attention of the mind in order for the suggestions to be received in an effective manner. Consciousness is suspended in natural sleep, but must be present in hypnosis.

NLP Co-Creator Richard Bandler describes hypnosis as “the process of guiding a person into a state where they have more direct access to their unconscious mind, which is where powerful changes can be made, deliberately through the use of suggestion.”
