UK Hypnotherapists - Choosing a Hypnotherapist (Part 1)

Okay, so you have decided that hypnotherapy is the type of help you would like to receive in order to overcome your issue. Now all you need to do is decide which hypnotherapist to see.

This may be where confusion starts to rain, as there are different titles for hypnotherapists such as Curative Hypnotherapists, Clinical Hypnotherapists, Hypnoanalysts, Suggestion Hypnotherapists and Psycho-hypnotherapists and probably a few others as well.

So even though you have made a decision to see a hypnotherapist it may seem that the title a hypnotherapist uses won't help you decide which type of hypnotherapist is right for you.

Well although the range of titles may confuse, there is a way of keeping your choices simple.

Some hypnotherapist use purely positive suggestions to help you overcome your issue. For many people this can be an effective way of resolving their issue. In fact all hypnotherapists will use positive suggestions as a matter of course. It is just that some hypnotherapists use this approach only and may use the title Suggestion Hypnotherapist or just 'hypnotherapist' but will describe their approach as being mainly that of positive suggestions to the subconscious mind.

All of the other types of hypnotherapist will use positive suggestions but they will also use other means of resolving your issue. The other means of resolving issues are many and varied but basically it will involve processes to identify the possible causes of the issue and then resolve the cause.

The psycho-hypnotherapist will have more psychotherapy type processes and approaches to dealing with issues and use these whilst you are in a hypnotic state.

The hypnoanalyst will as the name suggests, provide the opportunity to go through analysis whilst in the hypnotic state and include other aspects of your life and experiences that may have some bearing on the presenting issue.

Suggestion hypnotherapy is usually for small number of sessions e.g. 2 to 3. With hypnoanalysis this may last for anything from 6 sessions and upwards.

All types of UK hypnotherapists and their approaches have common ground and all can be highly effective.
