Critical Things to Know About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is an often-used therapy used to help people with a variety of psychological problems, including addiction, phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder. It is also sometimes used to treat insomnia, weight issues, and body dysmorphia. People who undergo hypnotherapy treatments may find themselves in a trance-like state where their mind will be open to the suggestions made by their therapist. Over time, hypnotherapy has been shown to help people who are stuck in a negative cycle of thoughts and behaviors. It is a process that can help you stop bad habits, change your feelings and find new ways of thinking.

What makes hypnotherapy work?

While there isn’t one magic bullet for healing or for treating any condition, there are common traits present in all successful hypnotherapies that contribute to the success and healing of patients under the care of their practitioner. First and foremost, good hypnotherapy is a collaborative effort between the client and their therapist. Every patient and every therapist should possess certain qualities that can be used to achieve success. Successful hypnotherapies start with properly diagnosing the issues at hand, because if you don’t have a proper diagnosis beforehand, you will have no hope of really achieving success. Then, once you have the proper diagnosis, a good hypnotherapist will get to work putting together a treatment plan that will be tailored to your specific issues.

It has been proven that people who suffer from multiple addictions or co-occurring disorders develop more successfully when treated at the same time. Patients who are suffering from depression are more likely to recover if they are taught to dig down and find what caused their depression. Some people are more vulnerable to depression because of a specific traumatic experience. However, if the patient thinks the depression is just a feeling that comes and goes, it will be less likely to go away without treatment.

When you take a class or read about hypnosis, you are likely to see mention of the unconscious mind. The truth is that we spend very little time in our conscious minds throughout out waking hours. Most of our day is spent either unconsciously remembering or dreaming. When we become unconscious, our mind automatically moves into a state of hypnosis. Confused? It is actually quite simple, once you understand how the mind works. There are four main parts to your mind: the conscious, subconscious, super-conscious and unconscious. The majority of us exist in a temporary trance created by the super-conscious mind to take care of most day-to-day tasks. The conscious mind takes care of planning and making decisions, the subconscious mind takes care of tasks we do not want to think about or confront and the unconscious mind takes care of all other thoughts and emotions.

There are certain characteristics that make a good hypnotherapist. The first of these is communication. This can be difficult, because as humans we often forget to keep our mouths shut when talking to others. A good therapist will not only listen, she will also listen in silence. When she’s not talking, the patient needs to be able to enter into their own mind and realize they can think for themselves if they want or need to do so. It is during this period of silence that the two minds of the patient and therapist can meet to create a connection that will last.

A good therapist also needs to be able to create a space where the patient feels comfortable and safe. If the patient feels like they are in the company of a stranger, there is no chance that the therapy session will go well. You’ll want to feel comfortable around your hypnotherapist, so make certain they are someone you trust and who you feel at ease with.

Foundations of Hypnotherapy Treatment

Over the years, human beings have used hypnosis as a method of healing numerous ailments. The practice of hypnotherapy is likely as old as humanity itself. However, it has not been until recently that the legitimacy of its effectiveness is being recognized and accepted in mainstream scientific circles. It has been more than 100 years since the first peer-reviewed research documenting the effectiveness of hypnosis in healing was published in scientific journals. The results of these studies are overwhelmingly positive and suggest that hypnotherapy can work.

What Makes Hypnosis Effective?

The use of hypnosis to treat certain conditions is a fairly recent phenomenon. In the 1800s, hypnosis was used as a form of anesthesia for surgery, which had a 100% success rate. However, it was only in the last century that it was extensively studied and put to medical use.

Today, doctors and psychologists use hypnosis as a way to treat patients with numerous conditions, including addiction. Medical professionals have found that the use of hypnosis has the following effects on patients:

It can ease pain. The ability to induce a state of deep relaxation allows a patient to lessen their perception of pain during therapy sessions and medical procedures. It works in the same manner as other analgesics by changing the area’s threshold for pain stimuli.
