Hypnosis vs Cognitive Therapy

Hypnosis Clients Get Rapid Results Compared To Cognitive Therapy.

First of all, hypnosis is not for depression, sexual abuse, marriage or couples counseling or a psychiatric diagnosis.

In cases of self esteem, feelings of defeat or loss of personal power, stress and anger management and finding one’s life purpose the clients that I have seen who also were seeing a cognitive behavior change therapist stopped due to lack or slow progress. And decided to give hypnosis a try.  There may be many reasons why and they could have to do with both parties, the expertise, commitment, motivation and the like.

The reason I decided to write this article was from a NY Times piece called You Are Stronger Than You Think. And it talked about when to empower the therapist’s client and let them go.  Mainly insurance companies are started to limit the number of visits allowed.

Insurance doesn’t cover hypnosis unless that hypnotist has a Master’s Degree.  Flex Spending Accounts do cover hypnosis.

Here is why hypnosis can be a more rapid approach in some cases.

Let’s take anger management.  Hypnosis can connect with the emotion behind the angry outburst or behavior because hypnosis works on a subconscious level where that emotion is derived.

Why is this important?

The person learned that response to a situation and has since then, reinforced it many times over, so that it is now an unconscious and automatic response.  Hypnosis can weaken the old response by building a new one.  Other therapies can do this do, but hypnosis can in 3-5 session on average.

If you are interesting in seeing if you can be hypnotized, we offer a complimentary consultation to evaluate your level of suggestibility.  I have 14 years experience and love to see my clients getting their goals met and then getting on with their lives.
