What is forensic hypnosis?
Forensic Hypnosis is the use of hypnosis in civil and criminal investigations where hypnosis is the tool to help subjects access their memories to retrieve information or evidence by recalling missing or forgotten information from distress, fear or other hindrances that they cannot recall on their own.
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness where the mind and senses are in a condition of amplified receptivity. The level of hypnosis varies from very light to extremely deep relaxation and increased sensitivity to one’s environment. It is a type of hyper focused investigating technique where the hypnotist accesses the long-term memory levels of the subconscious mind where information may be hidden or fragmented.
