Hypnosis Benefits the majority of people for a wide range of often stubborn issues.
The concept of hypnosis, or hypnotherapy, proposes that increased benefits are achieved within counselling sessions if the therapist is trained in hypnotic techniques. This uses the client’s reality as the foundation for the therapeutic intervention.
Hypnotherapy Gains Strong Following
There is an increasing trend toward an integrative approach to enhance and expand client work within therapy. Using hypnotherapy techniques opens new dimensions as hypnotherapy fits effortlessly within the counselling and psychology models of therapeutic work. The current literature reports that hypnotherapy is providing many beneficial client outcomes with key findings showing hypnotherapy to be effective with a range of issues. Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy. A client accepts direction from the therapist, moderating issues such as pain, dental and phobic fears, smoking cessation and weight loss. Hypnotherapy is shown to reduce trauma and lower symptoms of high blood pressure, anxiety, headaches, phobias and other functional disorders.
The American Psychological Association (APA) acknowledged that hypnotherapy was effective as an additional treatment for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy when treating acute stress disorders. Research has demonstrated that hypnotherapy is effective for many conditions.
Hypnosis, combined with psychotherapy, becomes hypnotherapy. Hypnosis or hypnotherapy has been defined as using modified and concentrated attention that allows the individual to engage in improved ways of thinking, feeling and behaving while experiencing new possibilities of self-control. Therapeutically hypnotherapy aids the client to attain individual goals by accepting them as eminently possible and achievable. Psychologist Dr Michael Yapko offers a definition of hypnotherapy that connects with counselling therapy: “hypnosis is conceptualized and treated as a means of helping clients develop powerful personal resources that can be purposefully directed towards achieving their therapeutic goals.”
Use the Power of Your Mind
Hypnotherapy is the use of direct or indirect suggestion to induce a heightened state of suggestibility, where the critical faculty of the mind is bypassed (the conscious), and selective suggestions are given. There has been considerable research conducted regarding a variety of conditions and issues treated by counsellors that are now being treated by hypnotherapists including chronic pain, PTSD, anxiety, phobic issues, depression, habitual behaviours, OCD, and eating disorders.
Professional counsellors and hypnotherapists share similarities in their training such as positive regard for their clients, rapport building, active listening, diagnostic skills, ethical practice and values. There are considerable similarities in the manner in therapeutic treatment are provided from Psychologists, counsellors and hypnotherapists such as (a) restructure or reframing of how the client views their issues, (b) listening, discussion and guiding clients, (c) motivation through imagination and reinforcement, (d) relaxation and suggestion to promote reframing and thought change.
Many people attend therapy for issues they have struggled with for many years or decades. While counselling may be somewhat beneficial, it is found this takes longer than using hypnotherapy to get into the initial reason for the issue. Hypnotherapy techniques can then eliminate or change the emotional connection to that issue or event and live life in the present, disassociated from that past trauma or damaging experience in a renewed way. This includes eliminating behavioural issues such as smoking, weight and eating problems, phobias that create such damaging responses, anxiety affecting far too many people in this age of pressure and stress. Anyone suffering from sleep issues can greatly benefit from hypnosis sessions each night to relax both body and mind and while medication is often the first point of call, the long term damaging effects are outrageous. Using natural and safe hypnosis is far more advantageous.
The issues too many people carry needlessly can often be reduced or alleviated with hypnotherapy treatment. People all have the inbuilt ability to manage and mend, once they know how. We need to trust more in our own abilities to heal, compartmentalize and reframe issues, problems, unwanted behaviours and past hurtful events because our mind created the attachment, therefore, we can harness the power of our subconscious mind to rebalance and heal.
