Hypnosis is like being in a daydream, where your attention is focused on inner experiences such as thoughts, feelings and imagery. Hypnosis can pass the conscious and rational mind, where the bad habits, negative thoughts and responses are being held, so that the suggestions that are given can more easily quickly enter the conscious mind and be accepted as true.
Clients are able to believe, visualize, imagine and feel the positive changes as if they have already happened.
Hypnotherapy is a technique that can help clients change their feelings, thoughts and behavior quickly. It can help them to either stop a behavior, for example, binge eating or to enhance a behavior, for example acting more confidently. CBH combines hypnosis with the theory, applications, and principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
Hypnosis is a very pleasurable and safe experience. We have all experienced natural states of hypnotic trances without even realizing it. For example, when we are absorbed in a film or when we are in a meeting, but our mind flies away to something else. These are both forms of self-hypnosis.
The first stage of a hypnotherapy session is the same as with CBT in terms of assessing the client’s concerns and needs, but it is much briefer.
The goals are determined collaboratively and then the therapist and client decide how they can be addressed and solved. A typical hypnotherapy session is based on the theory of CBT using hypnosis. Homework based on altering the clients’ attitude and thoughts is allocated between the sessions.
Hypnotherapy sessions are individualized and at the end of each session the client get a bespoke self-hypnosis recording that is used between the sessions and which is designed to increase relaxation and reinforce the desired outcome.
