Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a treatment intervention comprised of inducing the client into a relaxed, suggestible state and then offering post-hypnotic suggestions for relief from symptoms. It is a method of relaxation and concentration that provides access to a unique state of consciousness.

 

Hypnotherapy is the process of psychotherapy with a client who is in the hypnotic altered state of consciousness. It is not unconsciousness or losing control of oneself. It is a heightened state of awareness in which concentration becomes highly focused. The more that a person keeps their attention on the instructions being given, the deeper into the experience they will go.

 

Hypnotherapy is best understood as a process whereby clients can be helped to access inner thoughts and feelings and to use and develop cognitive skills that lie beyond everyday awareness.

The most important characteristic of trance for hypnotherapy is the subject's increased receptivity to suggestion. Suggestions from the hypnotherapist can be, and often are, rejected, although a good hypnotic subject will feel a strong and even striking compulsion to comply. The client always remains in control.

  

There is a large and growing literature on hypnotic treatment of many medical conditions, including pain, asthma, hypertension, headaches, warts, cancer, and immune disorders. Hypnotherapy lends itself to many therapeutic uses. At the simplest level it can be used for relaxation and stress management, much like meditation, by getting clients to focus on their breathing or on calming thoughts or imagery. More typically, however, hypnosis is used either to change targeted behaviors, feelings, or attitudes.
