Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis, or a specific state of awareness that maintains a relaxed feel but with attention to a particular idea or feeling, to engage people in the process of counseling. Hypnotherapy’s goal is to put people in an almost trance-like state where they can direct their focus entirely inward to solve a problem or ease the symptoms of various mental health issues. By focusing inward, you can achieve a greater sense of self-awareness.
Being in a more in-tune state of awareness can help you connect with your sense of self and recognize the strengths and abilities you already have that can help with your concerns.
If you are interested in Hypnotherapy, you should seek a licensed professional with experience and appropriate certifications. Hypnotherapy can be used alongside other counseling techniques or on its own.
