Hypnotherapy is a branch of psychotherapy which uses hypnosis as a method to diagnose and treat concerns including phobias, anxiety, stress, grief, smoking addiction, substance abuse and more.
A Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist has completed a rigorous training program which includes didactic and experiential learning, supervision, and many hours of practical work.
Clinical Hypnotherapy fosters unconscious growth by introducing new responses, thoughts, behavioral changes and attitudes into the subconscious mind. Clinical Hypnotherapy is NOT what you may have seen on stage at a comedy show; patients are not “put under,” and they remain aware and in control over their actions.
Hypnotherapy enables patients to attain a relaxed state of being where they are not distracted. This helps them to focus on their problems, and by asking pertinent questions, a Clinical Hypnotherapist can get to the root of these problems. A patient in hypnotherapy is more open to suggestions and ideas. By reinforcing these suggestions into the patient’s subconscious, a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist can help an individual take the first steps towards positive behavioral change.
