Hypnotherapy is a type of mind–body intervention in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility in the treatment of a medical or psychological disorder or concern.

Hypnosis is nothing more than a modified state of consciousness, a state of ourselves that, with the support of a specialized psychotherapist, we can access to focus our attention deeply within ourselves and to know another part of us that we do not have used to, although it was always there and influenced our lives.

Hypnosis is not only addressed to those who have developed disabling symptoms, which greatly affect their daily life, but to all those who want to develop, to use their own resources, to optimize their performance in various fields, to manage stress or relationships with oneself and others or to overcome all kinds of blockages.

Hypnosis can be used successfully in:

  • treatment of anxiety disorders,
  • treatment of depressive disorders,
  • post-traumatic stress disorder,
  • pain management,
  • psychosomatic disorders,
  • eating and sleeping disorders,
  • sexual disorders,
  • tics and behavioral disorders,
  • addictive disorders

How do people describe the hypnotic experience?

Have you ever been so focused on a TV show or so entrenched in a good book that you don’t hear your family talking around you or even your dog barking? This experience is somewhat similar to how you might feel while hypnotized. Many people say they feel calm and relaxed despite their increased concentration. Most described it as a pleasant experience.

Is hypnotherapy dangerous?

Hypnotherapy is a safe procedure when done by a trained therapist. Hypnotherapy isn’t mind control or brainwashing. Your psychotherapist can’t make you do something embarrassing or something you don’t want to do.

Benefits of Hypnosis

The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open to discussion and suggestion. It can improve the success of other treatments for many conditions.

  • Hypnosis can help people change their eating behaviors and drop the pounds
  • Cognitive hypnotherapy helps change unwanted patterns and behaviors by connecting with the subconscious mind
  • Hypnosis has been used to treat chronic types of pain and pain resulting from serious injury
  • Hypnosis gives your mind and body a chance to recuperate, repair and heal itself by experiencing the relaxation that it desperately needs
  • Hypnosis can help treat the psychological problem that is causing the sleep disturbance while at the same time it puts the body in a deeply relaxed state that helps the body and mind become rejuvenated

Is self-hypnosis possible?

Yes, it’s possible to practice self-hypnosis. Deep breathing, imagery, progressive muscle relaxation and mindfulness techniques may work similarly to aspects of hypnosis. This can be particularly useful for controlling the side effects of chemotherapy or managing recurring (repeating) health issues, such as headache pain.

Allow yourself to see what you cannot allow yourself to see.
