My journey into the world of hypnotherapy began over three years ago after having hypnotherapy personally. Prior to having hypnotherapy, I knew very little about it and tended to associate it with the scenes from movies showing a therapist dangling a pendulum to put someone to sleep. Most hypnotherapy clients would argue that the experience of having hypnotherapy is somewhat different and would describe it as an incredibly relaxing, insightful and liberating experience.
I decided to train to become a hypnotherapist in order to be able to help others and I am incredibly passionate about using hypnosis and believe it is a very effective type of therapy.
I would like to draw your attention to an important PhD literature review carried out by Alfred J Barrios in 2006 that highlights the success of hypnotherapy. The review states that after 600 sessions of psychoanalysis client recovery was 38% and for the behaviour therapy group they achieved a success rate of 72% after 22 sessions. In comparison, hypnotherapy respondents showed a recovery rate of 93% after just 6 sessions. Other studies have suggested that using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques with hypnosis can contribute to having an even greater therapeutic response.
One of the main reasons hypnotherapy is such a powerful therapy is because it involves communicating with the subconscious part of your mind. This is the part of your mind that works in the background and stores all your memories, beliefs and experiences from birth. Many people are unaware that the subconscious controls approximately 90-95% of the total power of your mind and it handles everything within your body from our habits to adapting to new situations and our ability to relax and switch off from stress.
I completed my first hypnotherapy course in 2018 and was trained by one of the top 10 hypnotherapists in the U.K. In 2019, I completed a further hypnotherapy course specialising in hypnoanalysis techniques and currently participate in ongoing career professional development training to update my skills regularly. To compliment my hypnotherapy training, I have a degree in applied psychology and a counselling qualification.
