Psychotherapy or Hypnotherapy - What's the difference?

If you are looking for psychotherapy or hypnotherapy, you first need to know and understand both what psychotherapy and hypnotherapy are, and what they aren't.

 

The term psychotherapy is derived from Ancient Greek psyche(ψυχή meaning "breath; spirit; soul") and therapeia (θεραπεία "healing; medical treatment").

 

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines Psychotherapy as:

 

"The treatment of mental or emotional disorder or of related bodily ills by psychological means."

 

Alternatively, the Oxford English Dictionary defines Psychotherapy (in 2015) as

 

"The treatment of disorders of the mind or personality by psychological methods..."

One definition of psychotherapy is as follows:

 

"In the most inclusive sense, the use of absolutely any technique or procedure that has palliative or curative effects upon any mental, emotional or behavioural disorder. In this general sense the term is neutral with regard to the theory that may underlie it, the actual procedures and techniques entailed and the form and duration of treatment.

 

There may, however, be legal and professional issues involved in the actual practice of what is called psychotherapy, and in the technical literature the term is properly used only when the teratment is is carried out by someone with recognised training and using accepted techniques. 

 

The term is often shortened to therapy, particularly when modifiers are appended to identify the form of therapy or the theoretical orientation of the therapist."

It has been estimated that there are over a thousand different psychotherapy techniques, some being minor variations, while others are based on very different conceptions of psychology, ethics (how to live), or techniques. Most involve one-to-one sessions, between client and therapist, but some are conducted with groups, including families. 

And what is Hypnotherapy ?

Hypnotherapy is a very advanced form of psychotherapy that is carried out whilst the client is in a hypnotic state of focussed attention. It is carried out by trained psychotherapists that have been trained in the way that the mind works, both whilst in Hypnosis, and out of Hypnosis, and are experienced in the safe and effective use use of Hypnosis in therapy.

The form of Hypnotherapy that the Surrey Hypnotherapy Clinic practises, and specialises in, is termed Hypnoanalysis. This form of Psychotherapy is a private and confidential one-to-one therapy, and is the preferred form of therapy because:

  • Peter's treatment uncovers the hidden causes of those blocks in your life and is particularly effective at helping clients with a wide range of psychological and emotional problems and symptoms.
  • Whilst in the state of focused attention associated with Hypnosis, you will learn where the blocks came from; how they got there; and, then neutralise or eliminate them at their source. Changes then begin to happen automatically because the old programming and limiting beliefs that you have are no longer negatively influencing your thoughts, feelings or behaviors.
  • Hypnoanalysis is a fairly repeatable and predictable therapy - the same, or similar, techniques can be used with a wide range of clients and symptoms, and the same, or similar, results achieved for all clients.
  • Peter's treatment will automatically target, and home in to, the root cause(s) of the client's problem(s), because it uses the additional power of Hypnosis and of the client being in a Hypnotised state.
  • The therapy operates automatically and can successfuly operate without requiring an especially high level of intellectual understanding of how it works - although, almost paradoxically, most clients do tend to have an above average IQ (Intelligence Quotient).
  • Most client's view the therapy as being easy to do and enjoyable.

So:

  • If there is something that you would like to do, but can't bring yourself to do it?
  • Or if there is something that you are doing that you really don't want to do - but you just can't stop yourself?
  • Or if you have some kind of 'medical' complaint that gets worse when stressed, such as maybe IBS or Psoriasis?
