Treatment

While hypnotherapy can be used to help people in many different ways, it is not a complete treatment for a person suffering from a physical condition, pain, or terminal illness. Nor is it necessarily a complete treatment for some psychological conditions - like psychosis.

Hypnotherapy Psychosis refers to an abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact with reality". People suffering from psychosis are said to be psychotic. People experiencing psychosis may report hallucinations or delusional beliefs, and may exhibit personality changes and disorganized thinking. This may be accompanied by unusual or bizarre behaviour, as well as difficulty with social interaction and impairment in carrying out the activities of daily living. They usually believe that their view of the world is correct and everyone else is wrong. Examples of psychosis include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and substance intoxication. There is some evidence that CBT (Cognitive-Based Therapy) along with anti-psychotic drugs can be effective treatments.

Hypnotherapy Neurosis refers to any mental imbalance that causes distress, but does not prevent or affect rational thought. Neurosis is used to describe a person with any degree of depression or anxiety, depressed feelings, lack of emotions, low self-confidence, and/or emotional instability. Most people are affected by neurosis in some form. A psychological problem develops when neuroses begin to interfere with, but not significantly impair, normal functioning, and thus cause the individual anxiety. There are many different forms of neurosis: pyromania, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety neurosis, hysteria (in which anxiety may be discharged through a physical symptom), and numerous phobias. Neurosis responds very well to hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy is often used to supplement the treatment provided by healthcare professionals, and a hypnotherapist will often work alongside a GP, for example, or even a psychiatrist or psychologist. These healthcare professionals may well recommend to their patient that hypnotherapy would be a useful additional treatment.
