How clinical hypnotherapy works

Clinical hypnosis is no miracle cure. It cannot instantly treat you of your ailments and problems. This procedure works with the belief that people can cure themselves. With the power of suggestion, people can empower themselves to use their own resources—abilities that can serve as the cure. You can achieve this through the two types of hypnotherapy—suggestion therapy and analysis. In suggestion therapy, you are placed in a hypnotic state to respond to suggestions better. This works best if you have certain behaviours you want changed to stopped. Suggestion therapy can also change how you perceive pain, so this is a useful pain treatment. Analysis, on the other hand, can be used to find the cause of phobias, disorders, and symptoms. The number of sessions will depend on the condition being treatment. For some problems, a single session will be effective. For others, three to five sessions are necessary. Each session will last from 30 to 45 minutes. Depending on your needs, other psychotherapy methods may also be used to fully explore the treatment and completely eradicate your problems.

What clinical hypnotherapy is not

Clinical hypnotherapy may use hypnosis to achieve its intentions, but it is not exactly the hypnosis you know. This process is only used for medical reasons; you will not be asked to do anything against your will. This is because clinical hypnotherapy is not effortless on your part. You have to be willing to undergo the therapy. At the same time, you will be completely aware of what will be done to you during the session. During clinical hypnotherapy, you will

  • Be in control during the duration of the session

  • Remember everything said and done to you

  • Be able to move and resist suggestion that you do not want

Clinical hypnotherapy is by no means dangerous. It is not brainwashing and it cannot be used to brainwash you. It does not put you in any risk. Although you will enter a trance, you will not be completely unconscious. At most, clinical hypnotherapy can be used to create false memories. However, these false memories are nonetheless part of the procedure.

Why is clinical hypnotherapy important?

Clinical hypnotherapy is important because it enables you to solve your own problems and achieve your own goals. The sessions cannot instantly remove your symptoms or ailments. Rather, they can tap what’s within you and expose your own resources so you can fight your own problems. Clinical hypnotherapy can work in areas where psychotherapy cannot. Also, clinical hypnotherapy and psychotherapy can work together in order to treat more adverse and complicated cases. In any case, clinical hypnotherapy’s uses are diverse and immense, a tool that can help you fully overcome your lifelong problems and ailments. If you want to achieve any of these, clinical hypnotherapy is for you:

  • Find the root of your depression, anxiety, and grief, ultimately removing such emotions and sensations from your system

  • Alter how your body feels and perceives pain due to different reasons, such as medical conditions and psychology problems

  • Make yourself more focused and willed to accomplish a goal

  • Help you stop habits and mannerisms such as binge eating, nail biting, snoring

  • And many others
