Clinical hypnotherapy is an established complementary therapy with an excellent track record. A number of now offer an overview of clinical hypnotherapy as a Selective Study Unit. It means using advanced methods of hypnosis and other techniques to treat a variety of medical and psychological problems. Researches around the globe state more than 85 per cent of people readily respond to clinical hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is neither some form of magic, nor a cheap street trick, nor any kind of quick fix. Apart from a trained hypnotherapist, it also requires the client’s commitment to change and to make the efforts to transform that change into a reality.
Hypnosis is basically an altered state of consciousness into which you can naturally enter or be guided to enter for therapeutic purposes. In this state, beneficial corrections are given directly to your unconscious mind. Hypnosis is an effective tool of making contact with our inner (unconscious) self, which is both a reservoir of unrecognized potential and knowledge as well as being the unknowing source of many of our problems.
The common belief that under hypnosis people can be forced to do something against their will, cannot be hold true. At all times of the therapy session, the client is aware of what is going on around them, as only the logical, argumentative, and ever questioning conscious mind becomes passive and not sleep, as the highly creative subconscious mind becomes active, almost akin to a meditative state.
