Clinical hypnosis is performed by trained professional to use an altered state of awareness or perception to treat a psychological or physical problem. Hypnosis is a highly relaxed state of concentration and focused attention. When in this state, we are able to use our minds more intuitively, making it a beneficial state for therapy.
Talk to a Professional
Because clinical hypnosis is used to facilitate patients’ understanding of themselves and their problems, it is often used to help rid people of habits or addictions, uncover repressed and forgotten memories, reduce their anxieties and fears, and help develop a new and more adaptive outlook.
Some of the most common reasons that patients seek hypnotherapy is because they suffer from specific phobias, have sexual problems, alcoholism, smoking, speech disorders, weight problems, or need self-steam and memory strengthening, yet, there is really no limit on what clinical hypnosis can help with.
Working with an experienced mental health professional for clinical hypnosis can result in extremely effective treatment, but it’s also important to consult with an experienced therapist to see if the process is right for you.
About Clinical Hypnosis Treatment
Many people have reservations when it comes to clinical hypnosis. Most of the time it is because they feel like they are giving up control over themselves and letting someone else have complete control over them, but this is untrue.
Hypnosis only allows you to better be guided, but you will still have complete control over your body and mind. You cannot be made to do something that you do not want to do, even during clinical hypnosis you can resist any directions that make you feel uncomfortable.
Making the choice to try clinical hypnosis can be difficult, but the best way to make an informed decision about whether it is right for you is to talk to a mental health professional.
