Hypnotherapy – the last resort?

How many people consider hypnotherapy as the last resort treatment for dealing with their issues?  They may start with trying to sort out their issue for themselves and then, if that doesn’t work, they might go and see the doctor.  If that isn’t the answer, they may get sent for cognitive behaviour therapy or counselling.  If all of that doesn’t work, they may finally think about hypnotherapy.
However, a study by American Health Magazine in 2007 reported the following findings:
  •  Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
  •  Behaviour Therapy:  72% recovery after 22 sessions
  • Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions
No therapist can guarantee success but these are compelling results.  As the magazine article ( http://bit.ly/ze9Nbi )points out “Hypnosis is a special form of communication to the subconscious mind where habits are established and memory is stored…The hypnotherapist helps you connect with your subconscious mind, which puts YOU in control of your subconscious mind – the most powerful and empowering aspect of your brain.”
A recent BBC Horizon programme, ‘Out of Control?’, confirmed that our subconscious minds are influencing our decisions on issues from what you eat to who you fall in love with http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01dlglq  Over 90% of our actions everyday are controlled by our subconscious minds so it makes sense that a therapy that harnesses the subconscious would be very useful.
So, if you are having problems with weight, smoking, an unwanted habit or something else, think about hypnotherapy.
