What is Hypnotherapy? Does it work?
Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy involving hypnosis which focuses a client’s imagination and subconscious to help bring about positive changes to their thoughts, feelings or behaviors. Together the hypnotherapist and client will decide on the desired changes to work on prior to the hypnosis occurring.
Unlike counseling, psychotherapy or psychology which may involve looking at a number of issues in a conscious way, hypnotherapy often focuses on a singular issue and works with the unconscious. However, this doesn’t mean you risk losing control or that you can be manipulated to do or think things you don’t want to. At all times when being hypnotized the client actually remains in control and although very relaxed, should be able to talk or get up and leave the room if they want to.
Common issues that can be addresses through hypnotherapy are things such as giving up smoking, phobias, weight loss and confidence issues. Hypnotherapy also often involves a short course of treatment, with only a few sessions needed in some instances to address a particular issue.
Being under hypnosis allows a person to be more open to suggestions and make changes that have been proven difficult to change or address in their life. Hypnotherapy has been used to treat a wide range of conditions or unwanted behavior, such as:
• Weight loss
• Stress and anxiety
• Personal development
• Habit control
• Life transitions
• Health and wellness
• Fears and phobias
• Goal achievement
• Smoking cessation
• Self esteem
(Certain situations may require a referral from a Doctor or Mental Health Professional)
Why hire a Hypnotherapist?
The science behind hypnotherapy is just now beginning to catch up to reports of its beneficial nature. The scientific community is beginning to rave about the potential benefits of hypnosis and what it could do for patients who are looking for a new treatment option. Hypnosis could prove to be a valuable weapon in fighting a multitude issues. Most often, people approach life change through the conscious mind: through goal setting, self-help, counseling and coaching. Unfortunately these techniques don’t always work or have lasting changes. By addressing issues in the unconscious mind (which is 88% of your mind), changes can be more quickly achieved and last a lifetime. Essentially, you are reprogramming your software.
What to look for when finding a Hypnotherapist
Hypnotherapists, their methods, and the rates in which they achieve success vary by case. Hypnotherapy is a trust-based exercise that demands a great deal of immersion on the part of the client.
There are different avenues and levels of training for hypnotherapists. Some hypnotherapists will have undertaken quite extensive training but others may only have done quite short courses. Lisa Marini was trained at Hypnosis Motivational Institute, a Nationally Accredited College of Hypnotherapy which has been in operation for 50 years. She received an extensive 300-hour training and is Certified through the high standards of the American Board of Hypnotherapy ABH-NLP.
