Hypnotherapy Online : An Overview
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that harnesses the power of the subconscious mind to bring about desired changes in behavior, thoughts, or feelings. This is achieved by guiding the client into a state of deep relaxation, known as a trance, where the conscious mind is less active, allowing the subconscious to come forward.
How hypnotherapy works online video
1. Online hypnotherapy operates similarly to traditional in-person sessions
The difference being that it is conducted over a video call using platforms like Zoom, Skype, or specialized telehealth software. The therapist and client communicate in real-time, and the therapist employs verbal cues and techniques to guide the client into the trance state.
2. Is online hypnotherapy as effective as face to face hypnotherapy?
Absolutely, online hypnotherapy is just as effective there is no difference. Some people feel even more relaxed and comfortable having a session from the comfort of their own home or office which can only add to the positive outcome as we work together. In fact, recent research backs this up and with one report concluding that online therapy lead to better progress and was more effective compared to face to face therapy. Similarly, a systematic review in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (Vol. 14, No. 4) stated that results "indicate that e-therapy seems to be at least equivalent to face-to-face therapy".
3. Can hypnosis be done online?
Hypnosis doesn't reply on having a therapist in the room with you. We all go in and out of this hypnotic state, also known as 'trance' several times a day, often when we're focused on the task in hand. Have you ever been watching a good film or reading a book and completely lost track of time? Trance is a very natural and safe state where you'll remain in complete control and can easily achieve as long as you can hear the guided relaxation.
As humans, we all need times where we can relax, reflect and consolidate information which why Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be so beneficial, because it combines powerful solution-focused discussions, followed by trance work so that the ideas and solutions discussed can then be explored and utilised by the brain for positive benefit.
4. How does hypnotherapy work on Zoom/Skype/Teams?
Using Zoom or any other onlinesoftware for virtual hypnotherapy sessions couldn't be easier. Once we've agreed a time for your session, you'll just need a reliable internet connection and a quiet comfortable place to relax. I'll send you a unique link for each session which is safe and secure and only you will have access to it. Zoom and Teams are very similar to Skype, just click your link and follow the instructions to join your session. You can use your laptop, tablet or phone to join your session.
We'll spend the first half of the session talking and exploring the positive things which have happened and focusing on solutions and the promotion of new ideas to identify a way forward. You'll then relax, and I'll ask you to get comfortable so I can still see your face and I'll guide you into a state of focused attention where your mind is more responsive to suggestions. The session ends with a quick chat we'll talk about your progress and we can book your subsequent session.
