More and more people are turning to hypnotherapy to treat addictions and treat a variety of conditions. The professionals at Plymouth hypnotherapy use hypnosis in two ways to help their patients.
Suggestion therapy: Suggestion therapy is a hypnotic state which makes the person respond better to suggestions.

Suggestion therapy can also change sensations and perceptions. Therefore, it can be very useful in pain management.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy: This type of therapy puts the patient in a relaxed state so that they can explore the possible psychological cause of a problem or a symptom. Once this cause has been discovered, the patient can work out their problems in psychotherapy.
What Conditions Can Hypnotherapy Treat?
Hypnotherapy can treat a variety of conditions. For some, it is the beginning of a long term psychotherapy treatment. For others, it is the initial treatment, with follow up treatments to follow.
Phobias and fears: When a person suffers from a debilitating fear or phobia, they can use hypnotherapy to find out the cause of this fear. After they know the cause, they can work on treating it. In cases of mild fear and phobia, the hypnotherapist can simply plant a suggestion that their fear is unfounded.
Sleep disorders: When people suffer from sleep disorders, they often take medication. Those who choose not to use drugs, turn to hypnotherapy Plymouth.
Depression or anxiety: People who suffer from depression or anxiety can benefit from hypnotherapy. During analysis, the hypnotherapist can get to the root of what is causing the person’s depression and anxiety.
