What is hypnotherapy
During the hypnotherapy session, the hypnotist guides the client into a relaxed state. Once the client is feeling calm, yet alert, the hypnotist has the Client visualize a very pleasant place and then goes into suggestions about the issues they are seeking help with. The hypnotist then offers words of encouragement, such as “You no longer feel stressed” or suggestions, like “Any time you feel panic or stress, you will take three deep breaths and relax completely”.
After approximately 18 minutes and suggestions of positive behavior, the hypnotist will guide the client gradually back to their regular state. The client usually feels extremely relaxed and happy Before ending the session, the hypnotist and client will discuss the experience, including reactions, progress, and insights. The sessions may vary in durations but often lasts for about one to one and a half hours.
