How Effective is Hypnotherapy, Really

There have been studies that suggest Cognitive Behavioral Therapy hypnosis results in a great reduction in re-experiencing symptoms then Cognitive Behavioural Therapy alone. In simple terms Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy that can help you to manage your problems by exploring the way you think and behave for different outcomes. It is commonly used for depression and anxiety. Hypnosis is often used for treating post traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, insomnia and functional disorders like headaches, backaches, and irritable bowel syndrome. The deep state of relaxation reduces levels of stress and anxiety. With hypnotherapy as a therapy tool most people feel a greater sense of control when addressing painful feelings, like shame, guilt, loneliness, and self blame.

Research shows that hypnotherapy helps to create positive changes in thoughts, feelings, and behaviours so you can live the life you want to live and let of the pain. With hypnotherapy you are not stuck in life but just committed to certain patterns of being and living. Those patterns have served you well in the past but no longer serve you today and they can be changed.

Research states that, “Psychoanalysis takes 600 sessions on average to bring about lasting change, while hypnotherapy can take only six. Research trials comparing psychoanalysis and hypnosis demonstrated that after 6 sessions of hypnotherapy 93 percent of participants had success.”
