Hypnotherapy is a state of mind of relaxation in which your subconscious mind is much more suggestible to making changes you desire. In hypnosis you reach the alpha brain wave state, and you choose the changes you want to make and you will only accept suggestions that are in tune with your own values and ethics. All hypnosis is self hypnosis because you allow herself to actively engage in the process. Experiencing the hypnotic state is a skill that can be learned and cultivated.
Often patients make significant changes in their lives through the Medical Hypnoanalysis, a short term therapy which combines therapy and hypnosis. Medical Hypnoanalysis is a dynamic treatment approach that emphasizes causes rather than symptoms, explanations rather than descriptions, and unconscious forces rather than conscious forces as being the ultimate origin of the disturbance. Most clients complete their treatment goals in twenty or less session, with the majority ranging between ten and sixteen session.
Medical Hypnoanalysis first examines the presenting symptoms of the patient by means of a case history, observing verbal and non-verbal communication, while seeking unconscious clues to the ultimate causes of the symptoms in order to make a psychodynamic diagnosis. After the patient is introduced to hypnosis the majority of the therapeutic sessions are conducted with the patient in the hypnotized state.
