What is Hypnotherapy?
As the term implies, hypnotherapy is a specific type of therapy, it is using hypnosis as a tool for therapy. A certified and trained hypnotherapist place the patient into a trance-like state that is also calming.
The patient is still awake in that they know about their surrounding, just calmer and aware of the hypnotherapist and what they are around. The patient may be lying down or sitting in a chair with their eyes closed. It can take a short or long time for the client to achieve this calmness, based on how much they trust the hypnotherapist.
How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
How does hypnotherapy work, anyway?
Hypnotherapy is using hypnosis as a therapeutic tool to help a patient overcome a traumatic event in their past. Hypnosis is a way to place a patient into a trance state. This means the patient will be in a deep relaxation state, heightened suggestibility, and able to concentrate and hyperfocus. Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to help patients relive painful events from their past in a safe environment.
There are three parts to hypnotherapy. The first is identifying an issue that the therapist and client want to further explore. Next, the therapist places the client in a hypnotic state to address the issue and change a behavior. At the end of the session, the client and therapist can discuss if the client found out anything new when exploring memories.
Hypnotherapy sessions can look different, with varying approaches and styles.
