Hypno-psychotherapy is psychotherapy which is enhanced by the clinical use of hypnosis. A hypno-psychotherapist differs from a hypnotherapist, in that they are trained to use both hypnotic and psychotherapeutic interventions, to assist clients in achieving their goals.
Psychotherapy can help you to make sense of both the emotions that are controlling you, and the experiences that trigger them. Hypnotherapy can help to change old and ingrained habits and remove phobias and irrational fears. It enables you to access your own inner resources and to find a greater sense of self, and through relaxation skills, a greater sense of well-being in both mind and body.
Therefore, hypno-psychotherapy can successfully be used to modify a client’s behaviour, attitudes and emotions, as well as manage pain, anxiety, stress-related illnesses, and dysfunctional habits.
Complex emotional, psychological or physical problems respond best to hypno-psychotherapy, rather than just psychotherapy, and this may include issues such as lack of self-esteem, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, depression and sexual dysfunction.
It also has many other medical applications, including pre/post operative treatments, anaesthesia and pain relief strategies, as well as stress-related physical problems such as skin disorders, migraine and IBS.
