Psychology is the study of human behaviour. It seeks to observe the motivational drives within anyone and offer a proof to the behaviour that’s demonstrated.
Psychotherapy is the use and application of psychological knowledge to assist people understand themselves and begin to make appropriate changes, or to be happy with who they’re.
Psychotherapy has several different theoretical models that have developed through the years, probably the most commonly known being psycho-analysis. The therapy that I practise uses the various best ideas from these differing schools of thought so as to help people achieve not only a rapid rate of improvement but additionally a long-lasting one. It has its basis in a cognitive?analytical model that seeks to watch the process behind thought, and know how it has developed, and after all tips to change negative thought processes into positive ones.
Hypnosis is an extremely effective method of treatment. This is a state of altered consciousness with increased and heightened awareness, that’s often accompanied by deep relaxation; this in itself could be beneficial. Contrary to popular belief it doesn’t involve becoming unconscious and has nothing to do with sleep.
Hypnosis can’t be forced upon people, however it is a state which people allow themselves to enter.
It is essential to appreciate that, during hypnosis, people can not be forced to do things that they’d choose not to do. Hypnosis or ” trance” as it is usually stated is analogous to the experience of day dreaming, whenever you lose a sense of time and should without thought continue a role that routinely requires concentration, equivalent to driving from one place to another but not actually remembering the journey. It is an example of an altered state of consciousness that we experience daily of our lives.
What is Hypno-psychotherapy?
Hypno-psychotherapy is the practice of psychotherapy with applied hypnosis being the main approach. The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, the lead body for the supply of Psychotherapy inside the United Kingdom, recognises the practice of hypno-psychotherapy.
Both hypnotherapy and hypno-psychotherapy utilise hypnosis in a therapeutic form, however a person that only practises as a hypnotherapist might not have undertaken training in psychotherapeutic theory and practice.
For therapists with the intention to register with United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy requires an intensive programme of 4 years training.
Short courses of analysis which can be available may give an insight into the techniques and practice of hypnosis, but they do not in themselves enable the practitioner on the way to address all types of presenting problems.
It is strongly advised that anybody seeking any kind of therapy investigates the qualifications and registrations of the practitioners they approach for treatment.
A United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy registered therapist will always provide information concerning their qualifications and registrations if requested.
