What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?

 

The difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy are commonly confused concept. This is especially true when hew to the subject , so here is difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy ?

Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a state in which the hypnotic subject is focused on an idea, thought or physical space. This focus is sufficient that they have a reduced awareness and become more open to suggestion. There are three main uses for hypnosis.

  1. Hypnosis is used for entertainment, as with stage hypnosis. In stage hypnosis usually only the most responsive subjects are used. This shows off the power of hypnosis to its full extent. However, it is not innately beneficial to the subject.
  2. Hypnosis is also used to recover memory in legal cases. this practice is called Forensic hypnosis.  The quality of the memories recovered are treated with great suspicion by the legal world. The reason for this suspicion is that memory can easily be altered, even by accident. This creates what is known as a false memory.
  3. For therapeutic benefit, also known as hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy

hypnotherapy is the use of the powerful state of hypnosis to create beneficial change. Typically, this may involve suggestions or imagery which will help the subject to achieve their desired change. Hypnotherapy is used around the world to help people ;

  • Break habits and change behaviours.
  • Reduce nerves anxiety.
  • Cope with physical and emotional pain.
  • Improve their performance.
  • Many other issues and problems.

The important thing to remember is that hypnotherapy is used specifically with the intention of helping the subject in some way.

Some lessons in hypnosis for CAMMRA

Lessons in hypnosis for the Complementary and Alternative Medicine Midlands Research Alliance (CAMMRA)

Today I’m off to the annual CAMMRA conference to give some hypnosis lessons and talk about the general public’s attitude towards hypnotherapy.

I had the privilege to be an invited guest at last years conference and this year I’m back to present. If last year is anything to go by I can expect a varied and open minded audience of complimentary and alternative therapists (CAM),  academics and medical researchers for my hypnosis lessons.

The main thrust of my talk is around the research I’ve been conducting into public attitudes and opinions regarding hypnosis. Sadly I’m currently unable to blog on this particular topic at the moment due to an agreement with the journal which is looking to publish it, but once it’s out I will let everyone know my findings.
