Many people report great success with hypnotherapy, but does that mean it’s the right option for you? There’s no doubt about it, the research now firmly supports the idea that hypnotherapy can help with depression, addictions and anxiety.
For some people their reservations about hypnotherapy are more to do with the therapist than the process itself. If you arrive at a therapists office and find yourself surrounded by strange symbols and metaphysical paraphernalia there’s a good chance you’re in the wrong place. Professional hypnotherapy is more about counselling and finding out precisely where the origins of the issue lie than it is about embracing the unfamiliar belief system a metaphysical healer may have. Today you may be surprised by how clinical hypnotherapy has become.
You may have concerns about whether or not you are capable of being hypnotised. Have a look at this post if that is the case.
Hypnotherapy is all about suggestion. It’s really the most powerful tool a hypnotist has. However, there’s little one can do with that unless there’s a thorough understanding of the client’s challenges. A good therapist will take the time to understand their client and learn what is at their core of their problem.
Hypnotherapy has become far more mainstream than once it was. It is unquestionably one of the most power forms of treatment for depression and addictions and has many applications for people struggling with other issues. So why is it not more widely used?
Well, to answer that we have to look not at the therapy itself, but at the hypnotist. It’s virtually impossible to accurately assess the value of hypnotherapy as it is so dependent upon the relationship between the therapist and the subject. This is all about rapport. A great hypnotist who has no rapport with their client is not going to achieve a whole lot. Equally, a therapist with great rapport, and little in the way of hypnosis skills is also likely to have little success. This is why it’s so important to take the time to connect with the therapist and discuss the issues in a very open and honest manner.
This discussion is as much about getting comfortable discussing the issue as it is about gaining information. Once both parties are on the same page finding a path to a successful resolution is fairly straightforward.
