Trance in Derby I have seen the movie Trance in Derby this week. As the plot involves Hypnotherapy, and being a Hypnotherapist myself it seemed a good idea to pass comment whilst the film is still current.
For those who are not aware of the film, it is the latest offering from the esteemed Director Danny Boyle. A description of it or trailers can be seen on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1924429/?ref_=sr_1 . You will find Trance in Derby at all major cinemas.
Without spoiling things for the would-be viewer, the plot revolves around an art auctioneer who has become mixed up with a group of criminals, and partners with a Hypnotherapist in order to recover a lost painting. Is it possible ? Well, we all carry around information in our subconscious minds, much of this is comes to mind, some not. I would term the use of Hypnosis in the film as Forensic Hypnotherapy, it involves using Hypnosis to help the ‘patient’ remember such lost information. I have used it myself with clients who have lost items or need to recall events. It’s quite fascinating really.
Whilst the plot is clearly larger-than-life the concept makes for an enjoyable film.
