We all have surely heard of the term “Hypnosis” in our lifetime. There is a misconception that hypnosis is where someone else takes over your mind, and you never know what is happening around you. Hypnosis is a state of mind where your focus and concentration is at maximum. In this trance-like state, you feel calm and relaxed and are more open to the therapist’s suggestions. Chennai Minds has the well-experienced and best psychiatrist in Chennai to perform hypnotherapy under the proper guidance and methodologies. We perform hypnosis on individuals who cannot cope with their anxiety, pain or for those who need to gain control over their undesired behaviors. 

Methods Involved In Hypnotherapy:

Many researchers have found that undergoing hypnosis therapy or hypnotherapy offer quite good benefits for various psychological, physical, and behavioral disorders. Typically, for all the physical, psychological, and behavioral disorders, every psychiatrist uses two primary methods. They are analysis and suggestion therapy to overcome the challenges in the concern distress. Hence, we will look into these two primary methods involved in hypnotherapy briefly. They are,

Suggestion Therapy:

In this method, the patient attains an altered or trance-like state where the psychiatrist suggests certain things and the individual is supposed to act according to the same. Hence, this method relies on the individual’s ability to act per the psychiatrist command. Thus, this method in the hypnosis therapy is performed on the individuals who wish to stop or control the unhealthy habits. These include excessive eating, smoking, nail-biting, gambling, and similar behaviors. This therapy encourages the individuals positively with self-confidence and self-motivation.

Analysis Therapy:

This method is performed as part of hypnosis therapy on the individuals who are affected mentally, and emotionally due to past traumatic incidents. The analysis therapy helps in digging deep into the individuals’ subconscious mind to retrieve the memories that were suppressed and have been affecting them lately. This method is also called regression therapy and only performed to find the root cause, disorders, and any symptoms that cause distress. In the analysis process, the individual is put in the most relaxed state through the hypnosis process. Then, the psychologist will provoke the past events in the individuals by asking them a few questions or any other related techniques. Hence, the primary aim of this therapy is to explore the tragic events that happened in the individual’s life and help them to overcome the same to lead a peaceful life in the present. However, it is also to be noted that the analysis process does not assure you that it can change one’s behavior or cure the distress immediately. Rather allows you to know the root cause and the suitable psychotherapy method.

Reasons For Performing Hypnotherapy:

It has been found that hypnosis therapy is the most effective method for managing anxiety and stress. However, there are many more conditions where hypnotherapy is applied significantly. They are,

Pain Management:

What Can You Expect In A Hypnotherapy Session?

The hypnotherapy sessions start by reviewing your medical records and explaining the therapy process. Then the therapist begins to speak in a soothing and gentle tone, followed by images that give you a sense of relaxation, well-being, and security. So, when you reach the desired mental state, the therapist would suggest different ways or ask you questions regarding your treatment goal. Sometimes, the psychiatrist would also help you to visualize images regarding the treatment for better results. 

So, the Hypnosis Therapy session ends when the required goals are accomplished. You can bring yourself out of the hypnosis state, or the therapist will take the necessary steps to achieve the same.
