What is Hypnotherapy?

When people think of hypnosis, they often think of stage hypnosis because that may be their only frame of reference. Stage hypnosis is very fun and entertaining but very different than Hypnosis used for therapy and behavior change.

A stage hypnotist is very skilled at selecting the perfect people for demonstration. This type of hypnosis for entertainment is not used to change patterns of behavior, it is used to create an immediate response or reaction using that most powerful subconscious part of the brain to show the extraordinary power of the mind. Hypnotherapy is used to harness that power to make positive behavioral changes. Using hypnosis to change a behavior pattern usually takes more time depending on what the pattern is and why the person has developed it.

Hypnosis is defined as a highly suggestible state. Suggestibility is simply the way a person learns and takes in information. Hypnosis is a natural state which we all drift in and out of several times a day, and is your mind’s way of escaping and taking a break, but it is also a time when accelerated learning can happen. Everyone can be hypnotized because it is a natural state of consciousness.
