Many people won't realise that there are different types of hypnotherapy. But there are!
It is really important to understand the types of hypnotherapy so you can make an informed decision about which is best for you.
Whatever Hypnotherapist you choose, make sure they are fully insured, enhanced DBS checked and registered with appropriate professional bodies - just like us!
1. Traditional Hypnotherapy
Traditional/suggestion hypnotherapy involves the therapist imparting a series of 'suggestions' to the subconscious mind with a view to positively influencing thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
2. Analytical Hypnotherapy
Analytical hypnotherapy draws upon concepts and techniques of psychotherapy (though the hypnotherapist might not be qualified in psychotherapy) in a bid to discover and address deeper, longer standing concerns. The aim of this form of hypnotherapy is to find and remove the root cause. In terms of treatment length analytical hypnotherapy lends itself to longer-term treatment and is an involved process often requiring significant commitment from the client.
3. Clinical Hypnotherapy
Clinical hypnotherapy is where a person receives hypnotherapy from a qualified hypnotherapist with a healthcare background. In the UK, hypnotherapists are not required to have any specific training by law, but a clinical hypnotherapist is a licensed clinician who can use the practice to treat a range of medical and psychological conditions.
4. Cognitive/Behavioural Hypnotherapy
Cognitive/behavioural hypnotherapy is a modern, scientific approach to therapy that combines cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and hypnosis to positively influence emotional, behavioural, cognitive and symptomatic change.
5. Hypnotherapy and NLP
Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) explores the relationship between language, behaviour and excellence. It is essentially a model used to identify and analyse the linguistic techniques used subconsciously by successful people, in order to produce excellence.
6. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
Solution focused hypnotherapy looks at what the client would like to achieve, rather than the reason why they booked the appointment. It focuses on the present and the future instead of the past, which is why it can provide a positive effect in such a short space of time.
The hypnotherapist may ask how the client’s life would improve if they fix the problem, and specifically what would have changed. This provides a specific goal for the client to aim for while making the solution clear.
Here at Birmingham Hypnotherapy Experts, we are Solution Focused and use a powerful combination of solution focused therapy, brain based therapy and hypnotherapy. The techniques we use are based upon up to date research from neuroscience as well as the very best elements of cognitive behavioural therapy and neuro linguistic programming.
The good new is, we never dwell on the past - so you can fully leave the past behind and concentrate on your future. We cannot change the past, but we do have the ability to shape our future - which is exactly what we will help you to do.
