Hypnotherapy and Psychopathology FAQs

Psychopathology is the study of abnormal psychology. It focuses on studying mental and behavioural disorders’ causes, development, and symptoms.

As a hypnotherapist, a variety of people will seek your help. The majority can enjoy the benefits of hypnosis (~99%), but a small percentage should refrain from doing hypnosis. By understanding the different types of psychopathologies, you can ask the right questions and determine if a client is a good candidate for hypnotherapy.

In addition to referring cases to clinical psychologists or psychiatrists, you will also increase the value of your interventions by understanding the challenges of a person taking care of a person with psychopathology.

Congratulations! After completing Module 4, you are only one module away from becoming a hypnotherapist. The next module of the Renewed Edge hypnotherapy training, Module 5: Specialist Certificate in Clinical Hypnotherapy will teach you advanced hypnosis techniques.

Some cases may require interventions other than hypnosis first. If you want a high success rate in your hypnosis practice, you will need to refer such patients to a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist. Being able to spot symptoms that could lead to a psychopathology diagnosis will earn you the trust of your clients, which can lead to better word of mouth and more referrals.

You already have excellent knowledge about psychopathologies. In this hypnosis training, you will understand where to use hypnosis and where to refrain from using it.
