What is Hypnotherapy?

4 June 2019/

Hypnosis is not so much a therapeutic method as a vehicle for therapeutic methods. These include:

1. the classically “hypnotic:” suggestion (direct or indirect) and symptom substitution (a more “ecological” adaptation of suggestion);

2. the psychological: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Behavioural Therapies, Psychoanalysis, Humanistic Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Rational-Emotive Therapy, Solution Oriented Therapy, Interpersonal therapy, Family Therapy, etc.

3. the non-psychological – like Neuro-linguistic Programming and variants.

Trance offers client and clinician access to involuntary or unconscious processes, including those involved with motivation. It amplifies experience, so that change can be effected at an unconscious level, be well-integrated, aligned with client motivations and thus have a more generative, lasting and powerful quality compared with talk-therapies.
