CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY

  • Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion is a process of collaborations between a therapist and an individual (referred as a client), in which the individual has heightened focus, concentration and suggestibility.

  • Hypnosis usually involves using verbal repetition and mental images.

  • When clients are under hypnosis, they usually feel calm and relaxed and are more open to suggestions.

  • The aim of hypnotherapy is to assist the individuals in finding meaningful alternatives to their present unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling, or behaving.

  • The list of problems which may be amenable to hypnotherapy is far too long and varied to catalog but certainly includes: anxiety, panic, phobias, unwanted habits, compulsive behaviour and addictions (e.g. smoking, overeating, alcoholism), disrupted sleep patterns, lack of confidence and low self-esteem, adverse childhood experiences and PTSD, fear of examinations and public speaking. It has proved of value within pain management and in the areas of both sporting and artistic performance enhancement. Hypnosis can also assist in helping to resolve relationship difficulties and be useful within anger management strategies.

  • Hypnosis treatment has been used over the years and has shown a 77 percent success rate. Unlike many other psychological therapies, hypnotherapy is generally considered to be a fairly short-term approach in which beneficial change, if it is to occur, should become apparent within relatively few sessions.
