Hypnotherapy in Chiang Mai
Hypnotherapy in Chiang Mai – What is it and How Does it Work?
Hypnotherapy in Chiang Mai is part of a modern mindfulness approach to therapy that combines conventional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is a tool that has been proven to increase motivation and to create positive changes which can also be accessed in Bangkok and online.
Hypnotherapy comprises two main components: hypnosis and therapy.
Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind where a certified hypnotherapist guides the client into accessing their imagination. In this state, the client is more aware, responsive, and receptive to suggestions for change. This includes changes in: self-talk (positive and negative), habits, behaviours, deeply ingrained core beliefs, perception of experiences, felt sensations, and emotional states.
Therapy is an opportunity for someone to process thoughts, experiences, and emotions in order to improve themselves mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Therapy may be done at any time with the goal of improving overall wellness, but it can also be utilized in response to specific stressors, life transitions, or personal struggles.
Hypnotherapy is the combination of hypnosis and therapy. Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to access one’s inner world or subconscious in order to make therapy more effective or to augment traditional talk therapy. Hypnotherapy has been proven to help people connect with dissociated emotions and disowned parts of themselves as well as aid individuals in ceasing unhealthy or unproductive habits or behaviors such as smoking cigarettes. Hypnotherapy is a natural and effective holistic modality that allows one to become more aware and connected to ourselves and can help to break through certain issues that traditional therapy may not be able to address.

Hypnotherapy in Chiang Mai FAQ’S
Q: Will I be vulnerable when I’m under hypnosis? How do I know that I can trust my therapist?
A: It is a myth that one loses complete control under hypnosis. Hypnosis can never make you do something that is against your morals or ethics, or really, something that you truly do not want to do. At least part of you has to be “on board” and committed to change in order for hypnosis to be effective.
Q: What can not be treated with Hypnotherapy?
A: A Hypnotherapist is not going to treat serious psychiatric or mental health problems or be able to address medical issues. These issues would be referred to a psychiatrist or physician. That said, hypnotherapy can augment other forms of therapy and aid in one’s overall wellness.
Q: Can hypnotherapy be effective when done online?
A: Yes! All that is required for online hypnotherapy to be effective is a quiet, uncluttered space. Online hypnotherapy is a preferred option for many with busy schedules, at-home responsibilities, or for those who may be in quarantine.
