Hypnotherapy Adelaide Professionals Talk About Hypno-Psychotherapy
December 14, 2017 – Hypnosis describes a wide array of naturally occurring states of altered awareness (sometimes referred to as a trance). These hypnotic states range from momentary distractions through enhanced relaxation, to very deep states of inward focus and awareness.
Hypno-psychotherapy is a treatment that can be used to change a person's behavior, attitudes and emotions. According to hypnotherapy Adelaide practitioners, hypno-psychotherapy can also be used to help manage pain, anxiety and stress-related health issues, as well as helping people overcome undesired habits and improving confidence.
In addition, therapists who practice this method of hypnotherapy may help deal with more deep-seated problems, like those addressed by other branches or psychotherapy.
The Difference Between Traditional Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy
Hypnotherapy is considered to be a form of complementary therapy. It makes use of the subconscious and the power of suggestion to help promote a positive change in your thoughts, feelings and behavior.
Meanwhile, psychotherapy is a type of therapy used to treat emotional and mental health problems. It often involves talking, though it may also include other methods like music, art and movement.
What is Hypno-Psychotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is often used on its own, as a simple form of relaxation therapy, or it may be integrated with other forms of psychological treatment. This integrative approach came to be known as hypno-psychotherapy. It can also include many therapeutic applications, such as the following:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The integrative approach uses both hypnotherapy and psychotherapy to help with deep problems that may not be addressed with hypnotherapy alone (i.e. trauma).
When a professional is a hypno-psychotherapist, it means they have undertaken training in psychotherapy both in theory and practice, as well as hypnotherapy. This will allow the professionals to provide a supportive and empathetic relationship with the client.
There are a number of applications within hypno-psychotherapy and the strategies used will differ greatly, depending on the professional and the client's circumstance. Hypno-psychoterapy may also provide supporting therapeutic structures as the principle medium for positive change.
While a flexible approach is vital, there must be equality in the working relationship between the client and the therapist. The client also needs to be comfortable and placed in a safe, supportive environment, in order to explore and clarify why they're in the session.
What Can Hypno-Psychoterapy Help With?
Primarily, hypno-psychotherapy is a treatment method made for psychological problems that can't be resolved by hypnotherapy alone.
As well as helping with a wide array of psychological concerns, hypno-psychotherapy can also help to manage unwanted habits, like smoking. It can also help with social challenges, including low self-confidence, panic attacks and phobias.
According to the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, this integrative approach is also used to help athletes enhance performance in sporting events and it helps improve concentration as well. Stress-related physical problems, migraine and IBS included, are also thought to respond well with hypno-psychotherapy.
