A hypnotherapist is someone who combines the knowledge and skill of a psychotherapist with hypnosis. A hypnotherapist places a patient in a state of hypnosis which is a more suggestible sub-conscious state. The hypnotherapist is then able to make suggestions to the patient which will modify their behaviour when they wake to the conscious state.
A hypnotherapist can help individuals by using hypnotherapy to change unhealthy habits or behaviours. By using positive suggestions to a patient under hypnosis, these habits and behaviours can be eliminated, such as phobias, smoking or drinking, within a few sessions.
Hypnotherapy can also help to identify the cause of problems and anxieties, such as in case of phobias it can trace back to a childhood event that the phobia stems from. By acknowledging the cause, a hypnotherapist can then appropriately help you to address and deal with the issues. Hypnotherapists can also help individuals develop their strengths and realise their potential, by setting to achieve certain life/personal goals via therapy.
Whether it is to eliminate a bad habit, get treatment for anxiety from deep-seated problems or simply to improve the chances at achieving personal goals, a hypnotherapist is a good choice for help.
