Clinical Hypnotherapy

What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique utilised in counselling where the hypnotised individual is able to access a relaxed, ethereal state of mind where they can remain immersed in the thought process, free from the distraction of unnecessary mental clutter and sensory noise. This process is guided by a skilled hypnotist who induces a relaxed mental state where the conscious, overthinking mind takes a break. A state of hypnosis allows the client to peer into the wealth of information, experiences and memories buried in their subconscious mind and, through the guided application of this craft on the part of the hypnotist, positive changes can be made, unhelpful modes of thinking and existing can be altered, and traumatic memories that have receded into the unconscious can be examined and given their long overdue closure.

Why Choose Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy has been proven successful in addressing a number of ailments, even making it as far as being explored as a new treatment to the pervasive and debilitating Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS):

“The results showed hypnotherapy was as beneficial as the low FODMAP diet. Seventy per cent of those surveyed responded positively to the hypnotherapy, and there was a significant improvement in their overall and individual gut symptoms ( abdominal pain, bloating, wind, satisfaction with stool consistency, nausea) by the end of the six-week study. This improvement was also maintained six-months post-treatment, suggesting that the response was not purely a placebo.” Source: How hypnotherapy is Helping People Who Suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), LENS, Monash University.

Choosing clinical hypnotherapy is a worthwhile choice for anyone who wants to regain control of their lives. Most importantly, being hypnotised is a conscious decision to unlock a trove of unconscious benefits that will affect your life positively. This means that a therapist cannot use hypnosis to make you do anything you do not want to do. In fact, we all already access a hypnotic state regularly. When you’ve driven home and realise that you don’t remember the trip at all, or when you’re absorbed in a memory so vivid that you forget where you are, these are just some examples of being in a state of hypnosis. The difference is that under the guidance of a clinical hypnotherapist this state is intentionally induced to break down the artificial barriers your conscious, analytical mind has built around your psyche, to protect yourself from having to address traumas, habits, addictions or other afflictions. Once this shroud of nonsense has been discarded you can at last work together with your hypnotist to identify problem areas in your life and truly solve the issues hidden beneath the surface.
