When you hear the word ‘hypnotherapy,’ you may think of ‘hypnosis.’ They're actually different in a very important way. When a person participates in hypnosis, someone else is telling them what to do. Usually, silly things that people in a comedy club would find funny. Yes, even act like a chicken.
When a client or patient participates in hypnotherapy, the therapist/counselor or doctor helps the person become very relaxed and then makes suggestions. The person chooses what suggestions to follow.
Here is one way both are alike, and it is very important. The person participating in hypnosis or hypnotherapy can stop the session at any time. Truly you are in charge.
Why would a person choose hypnotherapy? It is very helpful, even with young children, for those who suffer from phobias - a deep fear of certain things or animals or actions or places.
Hypnotherapy can help with general anxiety, too. It can be used to stop smoking, develop better habits with food, prepare for a dentist's visit or in learning to drive. The uses are so varied.
I use “regular” talk therapy and hypnotherapy in different ways with different clients. Feel free to ask questions you may have about how I use this in helping my clients.
Anxiety & Depression
These are referred to as Mood Disorders. Experiencing Anxiety or Depression (or both) does not mean you are crazy. It means you are struggling. You might be having Panic Attacks, having trouble with work or school and not sure what to do. Many people think Anxiety and Depression are totally different and they can feel different, but frequently a person feels irritable and edgy when they are depressed.
