CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY FACTS

A process of collaboration

Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion is a process of collaborations between a therapist and an individual (referred as a client), in which the individual has heightened focus, concentration and suggestibility. It’s a collaborative process in which you allow yourself to follow the guidance of the therapist by using your imagination to evoke positive emotions and rehearse behaviour change.

Suggestibility

Hypnotic suggestion is a means of experiencing certain helpful ideas at a level profound enough to directly influence our emotions and behaviour. Psychological and emotional problems can be seen as the result of negative thinking, whereas hypnotherapy aims to encourage (“suggest”) positive ideas which lead to improvement.

Verbal repetition and Mental images

Hypnosis usually involves using verbal repetition and mental images. Hypnotic “trance” , so-called, is not scientifically proven. Clinical hypnotherapy focuses more on hypnosis as an increased ability to respond to positive suggestions, usually accompanied simply by relaxed attention to the ideas being suggested. Comedy stage hypnosis has very little to do with clinical hypnotherapy and has been shown to foster misconceptions which can prevent people from benefiting from treatment.

Science-based

Thousands of positive experimental and clinical research studies on hypnosis have been published. It was recognised as an effective treatment by the British Medical Association (BMA) and American Medical Association (AMA) in the 1950s and, more recently, by the American Psychological Association (for obesity) and NICE guidance (for IBS) used by the NHS.

Hypnosis treatment has been used over the years and has shown a 77 percent success rate

The list of problems which may be amenable to hypnotherapy is far too long and varied to catalog but certainly includes: anxiety, panic, phobias, unwanted habits, compulsive behaviour and addictions (e.g. smoking, overeating, alcoholism), disrupted sleep patterns, lack of confidence and low self-esteem, adverse childhood experiences and PTSD, fear of examinations and public speaking. It has proved of value within pain management and in the areas of both sporting and artistic performance enhancement. Hypnosis can also assist in helping to resolve relationship difficulties and be useful within anger management strategies therapies, hypnotherapy is generally considered to be a fairly short-term approach in which beneficial change.

Galia has been a very understanding, patient and calming individual. Hypnotherapy with Galia has helped ease the anxious thoughts I have been experiencing but has also helped to reduce the physical ‘tense’ shoulder pains that come with being highly anxious. After each session, I feel much lighter, happier, relaxed and ready to tackle my anxious thoughts. I would highly recommend Galia’s service to all. I believe there’s plenty to gain by seeking out sessions.
