Hypnotherapy is a trance-like state where one has heightened concentration and focus. It's often done with the help of a therapist using mental images and verbal repetition. When one is under hypnotic suggestion or hypnosis, they feel calm and relaxed and are usually more open to suggestion. The therapy helps clients gain control over unwanted behaviors or help them cope better with pain or anxiety.
During the therapy session, the hypnotherapist induces a state of intense focus and concentration. He or she then makes suggestions to help the patient attain their therapeutic goals. And thanks to the intense focus, the patient is more open to advice and feedback.
