What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
Firstly it is important to distinguish between hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Hypnosis refers to a state of highly focused attention or concentration whereby suggestions can be taken on board by the individual. This is sometimes also referred to as a trance like state. Hypnotherapy refers to the psychological or cognitive processes used with hypnosis to address the client’s concern/s that they have presented during their therapy session.
Hypnotherapy can often be viewed as a supplementary form of therapy, used alongside other forms of treatment and therapies, including medical treatment. However hypnotherapy can also be used on its own to tackle a wide range of cognitive issues including the anxiety, phobias, psychosexual behaviours, spontaneous behaviours, habits, relationship issues and many more. Hypnotherapy can also aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), skin issues and many more physiological conditions. Hypnotherapy is safe for all ages but if a client has particular health conditions, consent from a GP may need to be obtained before therapy can begin. This is discussed in your initial free telephone consultation.
Hypnptehrapy can often be viewed as branching into two categories; suggestion therapy and psychoanalysis. Suggestion therapy refers to the presentation of suggestions, usually positive suggestions presented to the subconscious mind, whilst the client is in a state of hypnosis. As the client is in a deeply relaxed state, this state of mind makes the client more receptive to suggestions given by the therapist. Psychoanalysis on the other hand refers to a range of therapeutic techniques stemming originally from the work of Sigmund Freud. I always discuss with clients the most suitable therapy. Every client is different and therefore therapy will be tailored to each client's needs.
