Hypnotherapy can provide both the necessary motivation and the needed personal resources to move you along to a new, more successful path in life. Whether you are seeking happiness, to be free from unwanted behaviors or feelings, success in your career, self-love, social and romantic relations, hypnotherapy may likely be your fastest and most effective way to put an end to the frustration and limitations you may be experiencing.
It’s a common misconception that hypnotherapy is about mind control. Actually, it’s about being in a state of highly-focused concentration where the goal is to learn the necessary skills and allow in feelings which will help reduce unwanted behaviors and feelings and accelerate positive changes and neural pathways. Adults, teens and children are all good candidates for hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is set apart from hypnosis in that hypnosis is simply the practice of bringing someone into a hypnotic state, which can be done for any reason, including stage shows. In hypnotherapy, the goal is to help improve emotional, mental and physical health, as well as give a boost to every area of life.
Hypnotherapy is a treatment tool which helps a therapist guide clients into a state of hypnosis, or rather, intense, highly-focused concentration. With the client in a state of hypnosis, the therapist works with the client to help new feelings, positive ideas and new neural pathways form in the brain. In clinical or regression hypnotherapy, the therapist also helps the client to heal and clear up any unresolved issues that may be keeping them from reaching their goals.
In a hypnotic state, people generally find themselves more relaxed and understanding of their own feelings than they usually do in their typical daily lives. This is particularly useful for therapy, as clients find it easier to explore more challenging psychological conflicts and issues than they usually would be able to.
Those struggling to change unwanted habits such as overeating, pornography and smoking typically find hypnotherapy to be a welcome boost and relief aid, partly because their minds are more susceptible to allowing new ideas and feelings in during hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy can be used as a method to help treat virtually any psychological or behavioral issue, from anxiety to depression to addiction. It can also help to reduce or eliminate some physically-manifested issues connected to depression and anxiety, such as migraines or digestive problems. It has also been found to effectively treat some cases of chronic pain. Some doctors and dentists also use hypnotherapists in their practices as well.
For good candidates of hypnotherapy, the effects and changes can be profound. One well-known university study concluded that when hypnotherapy was added during therapy sessions, treatment outcomes were 70-80% objectively more successful than having all of the sessions in a normal, conscious state of mind. The study reviewed a wide range of issues and conditions and found that this held true across the board.
During hypnotherapy, people find that they are more calm, focused and relaxed than they feel in a normal waking state. They are conscious and remember everything that happens during their session but also feel more free, focused and secure, allowing them to feel more comfortable exploring psychological issues and able to change things that they didn’t feel possible before.
The more the positive feelings discovered in hypnotherapy are practiced, the faster neural pathways growth is stimulated in the desired direction, making those feelings more natural to experience in everyday life.
