Hypnotherapy and Personal Growth

Aug 17, 2007
Hypnotherapy is a form of hypnosis that is used for treating a variety of issues. Many clinicians have found that the use of hypnosis in addition to normal counseling therapy yields unbelievable results. Individuals that have the hypnotherapy as well as counseling reportedly have a more positive outlook much faster than others.

Hypnosis treatment has been used for treatment of anxiety, depression and other emotional disorders. The reason that hypnosis treatment is so effective is that it resolves the underlying issues that are causing the disorder. Sometimes through out life individuals have traumatic experiences or at minimum witness them.

These negative memories are stored within the mind and cause difficulties in different areas of life. Many do not even realize that the traumatic event may be inhibiting their success. With hypnotherapy they may uncover these negative thoughts that are causing negative emotions as well as behavior. With hypnotherapy these negative thoughts are replaced with positive scripts therefore eliminating the negative thoughts.

Hypnotherapy is commonly used for pain management. Whether it is chronic pain, short term pain or other types like surgery or child birth hypnotherapy can help. Hypnotherapy is very effective for teaching the individual to cope with the pain. This is completed by scripting in the unconscious mind that allows the body to relax and calm therefore easing the pain.

Most people become tense when they know that they are about to experience any type of pain, which can actually make it hurt worse. When individuals are able to relax, control their breathing and focus they are able to make the best of it. Not eliminating the pain, but making it more bearable is the goal of pain management hypnotherapy.

Clinical hypnosis is used to treat issues such as drug addiction or some other negative behavior. Clinical hypnosis works very close to the same way Cognitive Behavior Therapy does, only in the highly suggestive state of hypnosis. The hypnotherapist will introduce scripting that allows for the correct thoughts to replace irrational thoughts.

Though the body may become addicted to a substance the mind also comes to depend on the release from the substance. Making it a habit as well as the abused substance. Under hypnosis this habit can be replaced with something that is better for the individual and more productive. Cigarettes, drugs and other addictive behaviors have responded very well to clinical hypnosis as well as hypnotherapy.

There are many counselors that use traditional counseling only which works for some individuals. Those that use traditional counseling with hypnotherapy will pair the two allowing the individual to learn techniques that will help them cope.

There are many issues that surround addiction and emotional disorders. It is a wonderful idea to use both counseling and hypnotherapy in order to allow the patient to uncover underlying issues that may have been buried deep inside the subconscious for many years. A person can truly not be better until they resolve these issues.

Many use hypnotherapy to eliminate memories of bad times through childhood. It may be that they lived in an abusive household or lost a parent at an early age. Hypnotherapy can assist them with returning to the past as an on looker only to confront the situation.

It may be saying something that was never said or carrying out an action that they have regrets about not performing as a child. If death is something that the child was dealing with they may carry the baggage of not being able to say goodbye to the parent. Hypnotherapy can assist by allowing the individual to bring these thoughts to the front of the mind and lay it to rest. Though the memories or bad times will never be forgotten they can be put back in an appropriate place that allows the individual to have a productive life.

Hypnosis therapy is highly effective and used by many clinicians, doctors and other professionals all over the world. It can be used for a number of issues and is completely safe for the patient as well as the clinician. Hypnotherapy is more cost effective and has no negative side effects.

More information on the medical positives of hypnotherapy can be found in peer reviewed journals and in medical journals as well. That way you can view what medical science has deemed one of the best treatments available for yourself.
