Hypnotherapy

What is it?

Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapy, and this is one of the many attributes separating it from stage hypnosis. Traditionally, a hypnotherapist will spend about half of his or her time talking to the client while the client is in Beta (normal waking consciousness). The remainder of the time, the client will be in hypnosis (Alpha or lower). Hypnotherapy works by combining hypnosis with precise, outcome-oriented therapy and targeting the subconscious mind.

Hypnotherapy is quite different from traditional therapy. Instead of spending years with a therapist, clients who undergo hypnotherapy will have an efficient, fast, reliable means of altering negative behavior. Hypnotherapy produces the most immediate results for changing beliefs and/or behaviors.

Hypnotherapy is not for everyone, however. Some people want to spend years in traditional therapy; getting to know themselves and examining the roots of their behavior. Some people will even respond better to long-term, non-hypnotic therapy. Hypnosis is just one of the many ways a person can achieve their goals. But, if you want immediate results, hypnotherapy is the most effective tool.

The beauty of hypnosis is that a person’s body does not know the difference between imagining something and having it happen. As far as the body is

concerned, the physiological responses are the same, regardless of whether they are imagining something or actually experiencing it.

You therefore have the advantage of intellectually knowing that a situation is happening only in the imagination, and physically responding as though it has happened. You get the benefit of tackling your fears, losing weight, or becoming motivated without ever having left a hypnosis session. Still under hypnosis, as far as your body knows, you have conquered your cravings, lost weight, learned how to speak to romantic interests, and have been able to close the door on obsessive behavior of all sorts.

This means that when it comes time for you to eat healthy foods, go on a date, or stop procrastinating, your body will feel as though you have already done this.

This also means you will have the confidence and ability to move forward.
