What Is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is an adjunct therapy so it is often used with coaching or another type of therapy. The idea is to put you into a state of focused attention and heightened suggestibility. During hypnotherapy sessions, your therapist guides you into your hypnotic state, while gently directing you to explore the issues we are addressing together in therapy.

During this process, your focus inward and tap into your own inner wisdom for guidance and clarity. It might sound like a very foreign experience, but even skeptics find that it’s quite normal-feeling, and there’s really no need to be intimidated or afraid.

Hypnotherapy is not a magic bullet that brings about large-scale changes overnight. It is an investment in your development, and your therapist only facilitates the process. You have the answers inside you. Hypnosis Seattle helps you uncover what you already know.

Here are the hypnotherapy therapies that people often request in Seattle.

Confidence Hypnotherapy

Another name for confidence hypnotherapy is self-esteem hypnotherapy. Hypnosis improves self-belief in specific areas like work or relationships, or around specific goals such as taking a driving test or giving a presentation.

Fear Hypnotherapy

Phobias exist in our subconscious. They are learned responses. They are particularly vulnerable to hypnotherapy because hypnotherapy can help you unlearn the fear response, build up your exposure to the phobia, and ease the associated anxiety overtime.

Fertility Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy does not cure infertility. However, fertility hypnotherapy does lower stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety are known to negatively affect hormone levels and create mental blocks which affect conception.

IBS & Gut-directed Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is an incredibly effective method of treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other gut related issues. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “Gut directed hypnotherapy, however, has been shown previously to be extremely effective in the treatment of IBS, with the majority of patients showing improvement in symptoms, associated extra-colonic features and quality of life, 7–9 findings which have been confirmed by independent studies.” – Link to study.

Regression Hypnotherapy

There is Age Regression Hypnotherapy and Hypnotic Regression (Past Life Regression Therapy). Age regression is a therapeutic technique that we use to help patients return to painful periods in their lives. Once there, we can help the patient overcome the trauma and heal. Hypnotic regression is when you enter a trance and recall material from deep inside that is normally not available to the conscious mind – many think these are past life experiences.

Smoking Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis for the cessation of smoking can be effective for some people. At Anchor Light Therapy Collective, we combine hypnosis with therapy to improve the odds of success.

Why People Seek Hypnotherapy In Seattle

Hypnotherapy is a healing therapy, and it certainly does work. Many scientific studies demonstrate its effectiveness for such issues as smoking cessation, weight reduction, stress management, and so much more. Hypnotherapy helps you gain control of your subconscious mind and become aware of the old programs that are influencing your behavior so that you can shift them.

People seek hypnotherapy to get that control of their subconscious. They’ve tried other things but just can’t get over the hump. That is the time that people tend to consider hypnotherapy. We suggest not waiting until you feel like hypnosis is your last chance. Remember, hypnotherapy is not a magic bullet. Your commitment to the process and achieving your goals will significantly impact the results that you achieve.
