What is Hypno-Psychotherapy?
Hypno-psychotherapy is simply psychotherapy (therapy of the mind) under light hypnosis. You are in control at all times and it is a faster way of identifying negative behaviours that are rooted in the belief systems of the unconscious mind. Wouldn’t it be great to release them?
Over 2,400 years ago, the Greek philosopher Socrates exclaimed: “An unexamined life is not worth living.” Hypno-psychotherapy can be highly effective because it often works more quickly than standard psychotherapy.
Hypno-psychotherapy helps you to understand how you think, feel and behave the way you do. You then have the opportunity to create powerful alternatives to the way you are currently experiencing life.
All kinds of emotions come up during therapy and that’s good because something that has been repressed may be seeing the light of day for the first time. You may have breakthroughs during the session or between sessions or even some time later, as the change is evolving in its own time. In this way, you will learn new skills to help you cope more effectively with whatever challenges arise in the future.
What type of person wants to undergo hypno-psychotherapy?
Everyone, with the exception of very young children, people suffering from severe mental illness or elderly people who are showing signs of dementia. The main reason for the exclusion is that focused attention is required for hypnosis.
Clients present with a variety of issues, for example, wishing to find ways of coping with chronic illness that is interfering with their emotional or physical well-being. Still others who may be going through a bereavement, divorce, facing an empty nest, feeling overwhelmed by a new job or going through some other personal crisis.
