CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY ‘DIPLOMA’ COURSE
Many people are maybe unaware of what clinical hypnotherapy is.
Some people see it as mumbo-jumbo or something that messes up with your mind.
But, it's not true. Hypnotherapy is an evidence-based therapy with more than 70,000 research references worldwide.
Clinical hypnotherapy is not a form of magic pill for a quick fix. Instead, it requires that the client commits to change and is prepared to try to make change as a reality.
But, what is clinical hypnotherapy, and how does it work?
What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?
Clinical hypnotherapy is basically a combination of physical treatment and hypnosis administered by the trained professionals such as Psychologist, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mental Health Worker, or a Medical Doctor.
It actually means the use of advanced hypnosis methods or other techniques to treat a variety of medical and psychological problems, and more 85 percent of people readily respond to clinical hypnotherapy.
Those, who deprecate hypnotherapy and hypnotism, say people under hypnosis are forced to do something that they don't want to do. That's not true.
All the time, the client of therapists is aware of what is going on around them.
Benefits of Clinical Hypnotherapy
Clinical hypnotherapy is an established complementary therapy with a wonderful track record. It is highly cost-effective, with patients that benefit often being achieved rapidly.
Where other interventions have not produced the desired outcome, clinical hypnotherapy can be successful.
Some benefits of clinical hypnotherapy includes:
- Reduced chronic and acute pain
- Reduced anxiety and depression symptoms
- Addictions and substance use
Reduced Chronic and Acute Pain
A clinical hypnotherapy study in 2009 compared the result of 13 different trials that analysed the outcomes of hypnosis treated pain that was found in almost every hypnosis case intervention which consistently produced a significant decrease in various chronic-pain issues.
Clinical hypnotherapy that involves practitioner led instruction and self-hypnosis education for the patient who is during and outside a session helps in reducing pain associated with the physical disability, fibromyalgia, arthritis, lower back pain, and cancer.
Reduced Anxiety and Depression Symptoms
Clinical hypnotherapy assists the individuals dealing with symptoms of depression and anxiety by improving their emotional and physical control, reduces self-consciousness and channelling the focused attention.
Using phrases like “when you feel worried or stressed, you will pause, breathe and count to three” your mind will know how to respond better, instead of reacting to difficult situations.
During the trance-like state experienced in hypnotherapy, your mind is more open to suggestions than usual.
Addiction and Substance Abuse
Clinical hypnotherapy offers a drug-free alternative to manage the addiction and substance abuse for individuals struggling with alcohol, gambling, drugs, sex, food, and other issues.
This therapy also presents a more optimistic outlook to your problem, gives the confidence and will power to break from bad habits. Further, it strengthens the willpower of participants to overcome addictive urges and cravings.
Particularly, it helps in treatment of habits and addictions.
Self-esteem and Relationship issues
One of the most underrated applications of clinical hypnotherapy is its efficacy to improve self-esteem and interpersonal relationships.
Hypnotherapy is stated as a mental healing process that is used to achieve desired goals like changing behaviours or current feelings.
These behaviours or current feelings often involve the negative attitudes, values, and beliefs a person has of themselves and relationships, that is detrimental to growth and success of a person.
How Clinical Hypnotherapy Works?
Hypnotherapy is used to treat a wide range of issues related to various medical issues mentioned above, self-esteem and relationship issues along with physical conditions such as skin conditions, Irritable Bowel syndrome, and migraines.
If you have a hypnotherapist near you, there is usually an initial consultation to explore your issue and for you to ask any question.
If normal trance is used during the session, you will probably experience the pleasant, relaxed feeling of being in trance for about 30-45 minutes.
Clinical hypnotherapy might not be recommended to persons dealing with depression or personality disorders, like borderline, or narcissistic disorders.
But it is essential for people interested in clinical hypnotherapy to choose a provider. This provider will be either a healthcare professional with specific hypnosis training and certifications.
Hypnotherapy sessions are also helpful and are customized to the needs and beliefs of individuals.
If you want a specific approach or technique to avoid, then let your hypnotherapist know, and your treatment plan will be adjusted as per your wishes.
Behavioural Counselling focuses on human behaviour and looks to eradicate unwanted or maladaptive behaviour.
Generally, this type of therapy is used for those with mental health conditions or behavioural problems that involve unwanted behaviour.
Examples of these include anxiety, addictions, obsessive compulsive order, and phobias.
What behaviour counselling theories include?
Behavioural Counselling theories hold that people engage in problematic behaviour and thinking when their environment supports it. When an environment encourages or reinforces these concerns, they will continue to occur.
Behavioural counsellors work to help clients identify the reinforcements which are supporting problematic patterns of acting and thinking and replacing them with alternative reinforcements for more desirable patterns.
Now, preferred therapies based in behaviour theory includes the dialectical behaviour therapy, behaviour therapy, conjoint sex therapy, and multimodal therapy.
