What Is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that helps people make changes unconsciously, using positive suggestions. During a very relaxing hypnosis induction, the conscious mind is distracted or very focused and the unconscious mind becomes more open to suggestion.
Does Hypnotherapy Work?
Most people experience positive results with hypnotherapy. Some people are more suggestible and it is important to remain open minded when using hypnotherapy and to be fully committed to ensure the best results. The medical world is beginning to recognise this type of therapy, since the National Institute for Health and Care recognised hypnotherapy as a treatment for IBS. Many doctors, dentists and therapists are now beginning to include hypnosis techniques in their practice.
How Do I Choose The Best Hypnotherapist For Me?
Ensure that you choose a qualified hypnotherapist. Anyone can set up as a hypnotherapist. Check that the person you choose is registered with the GHSC, a quick way to check a hypnotherapist is qualified is to search for them on the Hypnotherapy Directory. All therapists listed must prove they are qualified to be listed. Also, it is really important that you have a good rapport with your therapist for it to be at its most effective. If you can, meet the person. Make sure that you feel comfortable . Many therapist specialise in certain areas, so you may wish to consider this.
Why Don’t I See Hundreds Of Reviews?
Like with doctors and social services, hypnotherapy is not a service that most people are comfortable shouting out that they have used. People don’t want to declare that they have anxiety, depression or are overweight. I am always dubious when I see hundreds of reviews as I very rarely feel I can ask for a named review.
