Hypnosis is a psychodynamic cooperation between the hypnotist and the client.
Definition as provided by Lighthouse Center for Consciousness Studies – Larry Dillenbeck:
Hypnotherapy emphasizes the use of naturally induced altered states of consciousness, combined with the skillful use of suggestion, to assist individuals to make therapeutic changes. A basic goal of hypnotherapy is to involve the cooperation of the client’s “unconscious mind” in his or her healing process.Hypnotherapy is a natural, effortless and enjoyable method for accessing inner resources to overcome limitations and achieve your outcomes. Hypnotherapy helps you develop a relaxed and receptive state of mind where you can make changes to your thoughts, feelings, actions and the results you create in your life. Hypnotherapy also offers opportunities to explore your past for greater self-understanding and to gather wisdom to apply to your present situations and future goals.
Definition as provided by Mayo Clinic Staff:
Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions.
Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behavior.
