The term may also refer to an art, skill, or act of inducing hypnosis.
In hypnotherapy, each person is considered an individual, and treatment is unique to that person. I refer to this as “client-centered” therapy. Hypnotists will often train in numerous approaches to be able to provide a client with exactly the work that is needed. I draw upon more than one type of therapy, sometimes called ‘modality’, using this larger toolkit of solutions gives us more to work with to perfectly tailor any therapeutic approach to you, the individual.
If your only knowledge of hypnosis comes from movies or live shows, you should know that the nature of hypnotherapy today is greatly different than in the past. Beginning in the 1940s, psychiatrist Milton H. Erickson revolutionized the nature of hypnotherapy. He analysed the nature of trance and how people accept suggestions. Instead of ordering people around with “You are getting sleepy!” commands, he started giving more apparent control to the patient (“You may find that you’re getting sleepy, and can close your eyes when you want to”). Hypnotic suggestions changed from direct instructions (“You will stop biting your nails”) to metaphoric tales and stories that led a patient’s unconscious mind to change unwanted behaviour on its own.
Both psychotherapy and hypnotherapy have many uses. They’re great for overcoming fears and problems that keep you from being social and succeeding in life.
Some physical problems have mental causes, and they can be treated with hypnotherapy or psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy tends to succeed more quickly, is less expensive, ideal for smaller issues, my psychotherapy training comes into its own when dealing with longer term solutions to older more stubborn issues. In conjunction with each other hypno-psychotherapy is perfect for todays often complex issues.
Hypno-Psychotherapy can offer a deeper method of evoking change from within than hypnotherapy alone. I do not use hypnotherapy with every client and each situation is treated according to the individuals needs and goals.
