How hypnotherapy can help
Hypnotherapy can help with many different issues, and is widely endorsed as a treatment for changing unwanted habits, stress-related issues and a range of long-term conditions and behaviours. Recently, hypnotherapy has been gaining acceptance in the medical world after the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recognised hypnotherapy as a useful treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
While more evidence is needed to support the use of hypnosis in additional areas as an alternative to conventional medicine, many people have found that hypnotherapy can help when used together with traditional treatment, or when used independently after other avenues have been exhausted.
Hypnotherapy can help with
- anxiety, stress and panic attacks
- difficulty sleeping
- confidence and self-esteem
- weight management, with the option of Hypno Gastric Band
- conditions made worse by stress including minor skin conditions, and IBS
- pain control and pain reduction (The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, 9 January 2013)
- stopping smoking and becoming a non-smoker
- fears, phobias and traumatic memories
- many other unwanted habits, fears and behaviours
