What are the benefits of clinical hypnotherapy? How can it help you become your best self?

Let’s be honest, most of us heard about hypnosis for the first time in a movie or a TV show. 

There’s either a doctor that practices hypnosis on a skeptical patient by counting from 5 down to 1 and it works excellently, or a magician asks for a volunteer from the crowd, says look into my eyes, clicks their fingers, and makes them perform silly actions. I watched my best friend turn into a chicken on stage once. We’ve all seen it done countless times.

But that’s not a true representation of hypnosis, and clinical hypnotherapy definitely doesn’t work like that. So let’s see what clinical hypnotherapy is:

What Is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a Complementary & Alternative Medical approach that uses hypnosis in order to reach a state of focused attention. Its main purpose is to increase a person’s perception and acceptance of suggestions, allowing the clinical hypnotherapist to work more directly with the subconscious.

Since its early days, hypnotherapy has developed in so many ways:

From traditional hypnotherapy to solution-focused hypnotherapy helping people focus on their goals better, with all being combined with NLP techniques at the subconscious level to help the client achieve their desired outcomes. 

How Does Clinical Hypnotherapy Work?

In a session of hypnotherapy, the practitioner will first determine the goals of the patient.

The aim is to achieve a state of relaxation, the hypnotherapist will proceed to create a link between the conscious mind and the subconscious.

Because the brain is in this state of relaxed hyper-focuses, it’s more receptive to learning new behaviors and dropping bad habits. 

Does Clinical Hypnotherapy Work?

I know there’s a question on everyone’s mind, and it is: “Does this really work?”

Now, of course, there are people that can vouch for hypnotherapy, and there are people that say it’s a scam. But the thing is, in order for hypnotherapy to work, we use it appropriately. When we have a combination of the right practitioner and client to assure we build rapport and maintain it.

So what do we use clinical hypnotherapy for?

The Benefits of Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy works when we use it for specific purposes. Here are some common benefits of hypnotherapy:

Clinical hypnotherapy improves sleep

In fact, hypnotherapy helps with the fourth stage of REM (rapid-eye movement) sleep, also known as “deep sleep”. This was proven by a Swiss study in which the brain activity of a woman was monitored after she listened to a tape containing suggestive hypnosis. She takes a 90-minute nap and spends more time in the slow-wave phase of sleep. This means that hypnotherapy could have immense benefits for not only people struggling with chronic/diagnosed insomnia but also those who wish to sleep better who suffer from work-related stress.

Clinical hypnotherapy eases pain 

Many do not believe that this is true, but several studies have been conducted, two of the most influential being published in 2000 and 2009, and it was determined that hypnotherapy does indeed help with chronic pain

Clinical hypnotherapy helps with anxiety

Like meditation, hypnotherapy can calm you down and offer you some peace of mind. If you are suffering from anxiety, be it caused by your work or your personal life, then a few sessions of hypnotherapy could teach you how to deal better with stress and how to shift negativity away from you, bring more positive vibes into your life.

Clinical hypnotherapy helps with depression

There are many facets to depression, far too many to discuss in this blog but along with aiding in good quality sleep and positive thinking, hypnotherapy can be used in an extended program alongside traditional medication to help change behavior. Our thoughts make up our reality, thoughts drive feelings, feelings drive behavior, and guess what… Hypnotherapy can help you with altering your thought patterns, hence helping your feelings.

Clinical hypnotherapy helps eliminate bad habits and addictions

Hypnotherapy is an exceptional technique when combined with NLP and when it comes to quitting smoking, reducing drinking, eliminating excessive eating. In half a day this can be wiped out in a rapid breakthrough session.

Although hypnotherapy helps with all of the above, other conditions need improving with the use of clinical hypnosis: 

  • undesirable spontaneous behavior
  • learning disorders
  • communication issues
  • relationship issues
