What does the term Clinical Hypnotherapy mean?
A hypnotherapist uses hypnosis as a tool to help make the hypnotherapeutic approach stronger and then treats specific issues that the client might have. Clinical hypnotherapy only works if the client’s focus is directed internally so they become more self-aware. This is as a rule achieved by relaxing the person as much as possible. Because they are hypnotised, the customer is able to access resources held at the subconscious level much more readily.
What many people will not realise is that hypnosis is part of everyday life.
By making usage of a skilled hypnotherapist, it’s possible to utilise the hypnotic state to create deep and lasting changes to ideas, feelings and habits.
Clinical hypnotherapy is a term used to describe advanced methods of hypnosis, which can be used to treat a range of physical or mental health issues, such as arthritic pain, panic, or even problem behaviours like smoking and weight loss.
Clinical hypnosis is a solution based treatment which can be used alongside other therapies to make changes and eliminate problems. In many cases Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), psychotherapy or counselling is used alongside hypnotherapy techniques. We can employ the information we have about the issue and the knowledge of how hypnotherapy processes work together with the mind to produce prolonged change.
The reasons why people choose hypnotherapy specialist techniques can vary greatly and the type and length of treatment might depend on the person concerned. The sorts of techniques and length of the hypnosis treatment can differ from one person to another because, as you might expect, every individual has different problems and requirements. In some cases treatments can also be context free – meaning there is no discussion of the history of the issue, but this just isn’t a problem for a properly trained Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Whichever form of clinical hypnotherapy is used, the individual will remain in control at all times, having the ability to hear everything that is said. Great care is taken to ensure the client is comfortable, and the right environment is in place to aid the beneficial result of treatment.
The number of factors that can be treated by hypnotherapy is vast and varied. Examples of these include; destructive addictions such as cigarettes and drinking, anxiety attacks, bereavement, low self confidence, habits, phobias, relationship problems, sleeping disorders, eating too much along with numerous others. In a significant number of cases, clinical hypnotherapy is thought to be effective in helping many of the above mentioned problems or ailments.
Because clinical hypnosis utilises a wide range of therapies and techniques it has a lot of tools in its tool box enabling a skilled hypnotherapist to adapt to whatever the issue presents.
