Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis as a clinical tool within the context of psychotherapy or counseling.
Hypnosis or Hypnotic trance is an altered state of consciousness related to a deep state of relaxation, focus of attention, use of active sensory imagination, all while in restful alertness.
Hypnosis can make therapy briefer and more effective by facilitating change.
Hypnotherapy can help with symptom reduction by going to the underlying subconscious cause of the symptom. Hypnotherapy opens the door to the subconscious and with the client’s permission allows the therapist to communicate in a language and form that the subconscious understands. Hypnotherapy can reprogram unhealthy subconscious scripts.
