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 therapy modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) , contemporary psychotherapy and hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy is a tool that has been proven to increase motivation and to create positive changes which can also be accessed for clients in Bangkok and online. 

Hypnotherapy comprises two main components: hypnosis and therapy.

Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind where an experienced 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 utilised 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 skin picking or nail biting. 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: Is hypnotherapy safe? 

A: Yes, hypnotherapy is generally considered safe when conducted by a trained and experienced hypnotherapist. 

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 cannot 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: Certainly, hypnotherapy can indeed be effective when conducted online. The advancements in technology have opened up new avenues for therapeutic practices, and hypnotherapy is no exception. Online hypnotherapy offers a range of benefits that contribute to its effectiveness and success.

Q: Is hypnotherapy the same as stage hypnosis? 

A: No, hypnotherapy and stage hypnosis are different. Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique aimed at achieving specific therapeutic outcomes, while stage hypnosis is for entertainment purposes, often involving individuals performing funny or outrageous acts under hypnosis.

Q: Can anyone be hypnotized? 

A: Most people can be hypnotized to some degree, but the depth and effectiveness of hypnosis can vary from person to person. A willingness to participate, ability to relax, and the skill of the hypnotherapist all play a role in successful hypnosis.

Q: How many sessions are usually needed? 

A: The number of sessions needed varies depending on the individual and the nature of the issue being addressed. Some clients may notice positive changes after just a few sessions, while others might require more ongoing therapy.
