Clinical Hypnotherapy

What it is: Clinical hypnotherapy is a technique that uses the hypnotic state which enables changes in perception and memory, a major increase in response to suggestion, and the potential for controlling many physiologic functions. Hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness or "trance". The hypnotic state makes the individual better able to respond to suggestions and therefore can be helpful in changing certain behaviours. Hypnotherapy is a common part of the treatment plan for people who wish to quit smoking or overeating, and since it can be help change perceptions and sensations, it is particularly useful in treating pain


Common Misconceptions: 

  • Hypnosis is not "mind control" or "brainwashing". Hypnosis cannot cause someone to do something against their will or that contradicts their values. 
  • When in a trance state the patient is completely concious and is not immobilized or asleep. During the treatment the patient is fully aware of their surroundings and can respond to any situation and bring themselves out of a trace should they so wish.
  • Hypnosis cannot solve every problem or take away personal responsibility. Individual action and planning are still necessary to achieve one's desired goals.
