Hypnosis for Treatment of Sex Addiction
Sex addiction nowadays is as common as other forms of dependency. Hypnotherapy is one of the most efficient treatment approaches. Hypnosis is the art of temporarily suspending the conscious layer of the mind to access the subconscious layer of the brain to alter preconceived beliefs and absorb new attitudes, views, and values. It is not an extraordinary experience, but it is as real as the daily events we engage in, such as daydreaming, fantasizing, or listening to music.
Everyone can be engaged in hypnosis for as long as a person allows it. The will to agree with a particular notion and begin to imagine it over time will produce hypnotic tendencies and results. The critical factor is the openness and willingness of the individual, which will make hypnosis effective in bringing about visible change.
Hypnosis is not a total disconnection from the subconscious mind but a psychological link between the subconscious and the conscious mind. A hypnotic trance is a directed daydream with a particular goal that cuts you off temporarily from your immediate environment and engrosses you in another reality.
Hypnosis helps to relax tension, stress, and anxiety, which triggers and leads to a cycle of escapism.
Escapism is the practice of keeping multiple partners. This cycle ends with a brief feeling of relief, then guilt and, later, a sense of worthlessness, which triggers a repetition of the cycle.
A hypnotic trance becomes the opening that allows an individual to accept new and positive ideas and values, free from distractions in the form of excuses, thoughts, and rationalization.
Lack of Self-Security Leads to Sex Addiction
According to a psychoanalyst, an infant is afforded a holding environment through the mother, who provides emotional support and a bond that brings about great stability in the child, who eventually becomes mature. On the contrary, a child who is deprived of this holding environment while growing up tends to be insecure, anxious, and emotionally starved.
This depravity can lead to a search for quick gratification, which sexual intimacy may seem to provide, but with its own consequences. A cycle of addiction begins in an attempt to create that holding environment regularly and alleviate uncomfortable feelings.
In real life, sex addiction may manifest in a variety of symptoms, comprising the following categories:
- Excessive masturbation or fantasy.
- Nudism and the necessity to observe nude people of different genders.
- Increased desire for sexual activities.
- Aggressive, brutal, and/or masochistic performance.
- Exhibition and Ghoulishness.
- Other forms of unordinary sexual activities.
How Hypnosis Can Help Recover from Sex Addiction
Hypnosis helps change thoughts and impulses, eventually changing a person’s behavior. Hypnosis can alter habitual cognitive functions and introduce a new experience that will form new values and attitudes. Toxic sexual tendencies will be replaced by wearing out the strong influence of negative beliefs and values, which have formed a strong foundation on which addiction to sex is built. With the help of trance induction, the neurological wiring is being reprogrammed in the subconscious mind. This induction deals with childhood experiences that tame negative impulses that result in sexual addiction. Hypnosis reprograms neurology to cope with unpleasant memories that trigger excessive sexual impulses.
Hypnotic techniques are goal-oriented activities that are effective in the treatment of sex addiction. These techniques involve ego-enhancing and value-based experiences that enable an individual to be held constructively in a more healthy way than through sex. Messages of self-worth and value are passed down to the deep and subconscious level to bring about a radical change.
A genuine self of the client is shown to him or her to cope with self rather than seeking external support. Hypnosis helps in overcoming sexual obsession and makes sufferers more receptive to treatment by dealing with desires that cause relapse.
