How Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Even though every hypnotherapist has different approaches to every case, some key steps are distinct to hypnotherapy. To be specific, a key distinction is the time spent learning the behavior of a client, and the thinking and thought patterns that retains those behaviors in place and the developing of a strategy for sweeping away a negative behavior on an individual basis.  

Particularly, as you go through the treatment of hypnotherapy, you can anticipate 4 major steps. Here are the following: 

Isolating behaviors 

Over the years, a lot of compulsions and habits have been reinforced at the subconscious level. In other words, our brains function to retain the habit in place, and we are unconscious of the control that these subconscious thinking have over our actions.   


A major difference between hypnotherapy and hypnosis: 

The hypnotherapists take a longer time to learn from you regarding your triggers and negative behaviors. Eventually, the aim is to identify the root cause or the subconscious thought pattern that is keeping the behavior in place. 


Making a strategy for change 

If you will visit a traditional psychotherapist, you are basically offered with approaches for overcoming negative behavior. This is also similar to hypnotherapy. For instance—procrastination—a recommended approach may be to work in timed intervals of 40 or 50 min. using a kitchen timer.  


However, with traditional talk therapy, you still keep on grasping onto the subconscious belief that the work would be painful. Hence, you will still need to motivate yourself to work in 30-40 min. interval since subconsciously, you still recognize that work is a pain. In other words, your problem’s root cause has not been coped with. With hypnotherapy, developing a strategy is simply one part of the puzzle—you need to make that strategy work and stick. And that frequently needs to update your subconscious thought process. 


Using the strategy “Stick” 

In hypnotherapy, hypnosis is applied as an instrument to assist patients to reach the relaxation state—which is the same with daydreaming. Once you reach a state of hypnosis, your mind is extremely suggestible. Due to this, you could start reframing the negative thought patterns, which are holding behaviors in place, like procrastination. 


Lastly, this approach is much more likely to “stick” since your mind while in the hypnosis state is very suggestible. In other words, you are reversing the negative thoughts that motivate you to procrastinate.  


Reinforcing the strategy 

This is an additional tenant of hypnotherapy, which is a process. A lot of people will start to see results after one session. However, for those results to stick and last longer, the strategy will require to be reinforced and evaluated regularly.
