How hypnotherapy works

As a psychological therapy, hypnosis is called "clinical hypnosis" and allows the patient to experience a feeling of deep relaxation, while his attention is focused towards his interior (your emotions and internal sensations) and to the appropriate suggestions made by the therapist, who help you make positive changes.


Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis it is not a state of deep sleep in which the person loses the will, the control and consciousness, but is characterized by inducing the patient to a condition called trance, in which he is actually in an improved state of consciousness, concentrating totally on what the therapist is telling him. It is about letting the patient get carried away, because if he does not get carried away there is no hypnosis.

The trance is used as emotional disinhibitor , and the suggestion is used to cause changes in the cognitive, physiological, emotional and behavioral processes of the patient, who will be influenced by hypnotic suggestions to the extent he considers appropriate. If the patient wants, he can finish the process at any time. The role of the therapist is simply that of facilitator of the experience.
