You have likely heard about hypnotherapy and its advantages in the field of counselling services. In this article we discuss the benefits of hypnosis as a form of counselling, and how you can achieve NGH Hypnotherapy Certification through the Renewed Edge Hypnotherapy Courses.
Hypnosis is increasingly recognized as a valid tool to build resilience and improve mental health. The public is increasingly aware of its benefits and the medical profession has embraced it. We are far from the days where the term ‘hypnosis’ raised eyebrows. The image of the flamboyant hypnotist working on stage has been replaced by the widespread acceptance of caring hypnotherapists who change lives. They can achieve in a few sessions what other mainstream methods achieve in many more.
These therapists went through extensive training that starts with a hypnosis certificate. You too can develop this much in demand skill. Hypnotherapy is a learned and trusted healing practice that has been in existence for centuries. Now modern research has restored its place back into counselling and medical programs.
Hypnotherapy is the practice of offering guidance via suggestions to a patient in a state of hypnosis. The guidance is delivered in the form of a specifically designed therapeutic plan that aims to assist the patient with both issues of the mind and physical health.
The practice relies on suggestions by the hypnotherapist. In the state of focused awareness known as hypnosis, the subconscious is given new pathways to explore via suggestion. The subconscious operates automatically. This automation is based on the program of patterning and habit the individual has created within themselves, according to their life experiences thus far. With suggestions, the subconscious can incorporate more useful ways of dealing with negative feelings.
Hypnotherapy is non-invasive, requiring only the acceptance of the patient and professionalism of the counsellor. There are no needles nor medicines, no unnecessary MRIs nor surgery.
Healing occurs once the pathways to resolution and solution in the mind have been laid by the suggestions of the certified hypnotherapist. These suggestions veer patients away from adverse-habit-causing behavior, allowing them to become aware of their actions, reactions, responses, and thought processing.
Clinical psychologist Michael Yapko proposes that hypnosis is relevant in the treatment of depression, as it builds a positive expectancy where methods of treatment are considered. He also states its ability to address symptoms of depression, as well as modify self-organization patterning that ultimately leads to depressed moods.
Hypnotherapy is also effective in the reduction of phobias and fears, as seen in a case study conducted by David B Reid Ph.D. on a thirteen-year-old girl who had a phobia of choking. Her phobia led to Restrictive Food Intake Disorder. By her twelfth session of hypnosis she had begun consuming solid foods without fear.
Hypnotherapy has also proven to assist patients with addictions, as seen in a case study by D.J. Orman who successfully corrected the addictive behaviors of a chemically-dependent man through focusing on age regression in the patient, to address events that correlated to alcohol and drug abuse.
Beyond these areas, using hypnotherapy as a form of treatment in counselling services has also been proven effective in relationship counselling, stress management counselling, mental health counselling, and the building of positive self-esteem.
