Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapeutic intervention. The therapist leads the patient to positive
change while the patient is deeply relaxed in a state of heightened suggestibility called trance.

Hypnosis, when using proven therapeutic procedures, can be a highly effective form of treatment for many
mental, psychosomatic, and physical disorders. For example, through the use of regressive techniques, an adult
patient may mentally voyage back to a point in youth that was particularly troublesome, allowing the healing of old
emotional wounds. Another patient can be led to understand that emotional pain has been converted to physical
pain, and that the pain can be eliminated once the source has been addressed. Or, a person suffering from chronic
pain can be taught to control the pain without use of medications. There are a number of techniques for correcting
dysfunctional behaviours such as self-destructive habits, anxiety disorders, and even managing side effects of
Hypnotherapy has been used to stop self-destructive and addictive habits like smoking. It has also been used to
curb the urge to eat for over eaters, to stem the disruptive actions of tics, cure insomnia, stop bed-wetting, and
minimize anxiety. Excessive stress can be generated from any number of sources and can be the springboard for
anxiety. Some of the more prominent sources of anxiety and stress for which people seek hypnotherapy are:
public speaking, test taking, and job stress. Hypnotherapy also works well for other anxiety disorders such as
phobias and has proven to be an effective treatment for mild to moderate depression. Hypnotherapy was also
more effective at enhancing quality of life of cancer patients and relieving anxiety and depressive symptoms, when
compared to patients receiving traditional care.

Confusion can occur when one seeks a hypnotherapist, as a result of the various titles, certifications, and licenses
in the field. Care must be exercised when selecting someone to see. Care must be taken also by the therapist to
ensure adequate training and sufficient experience for rendering this specialized service. The therapist must be well
grounded in a psychotherapeutic approach before undertaking the use of hypnotherapy.
