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. Like many people, are there times when you
are at the end of your tether and could scream at the world to stop? If so, then psychotherapy may
be something to consider.
Psychotherapy is the process of having a
non-judgemental, neutral and professional therapist listen carefully to your story; someone who
supports you in finding the answers you need.
There are many types of interventions; you
may have heard of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), interpersonal and other types of talk
therapy (too numerous to mention) that could help you to work
through whatever issue you are facing. By the time you have finished therapy, you will have
hopefully gained a deeper understanding of the issue(s) and
learned new skills to cope will future challenges.
Psychoanalytic treatment seeks to uncover the
unconscious drives that affect relationships, behavioural patterns and a client’s mental health.
