What Is Analytical Hypnotherapy?

Unlike clinical hypnotherapy in which the therapeutic emphasis is on the use of post-hypnotic suggestions, Analytical Hypnotherapy – or hypnoanalysis as it is sometimes referred – involves an exploration of the unconscious issues that are driving your symptoms.
It is an analytical form of Hypnotherapy which deals with the cause of anxiety and emotional problems rather than simply treating the symptom.

More often than not when a client come to see me with phobias, stutters, nervous twitches, depressive mood, anxiety, panic attacks, shyness, sexual problems and the like, I think it is a fair assumption that they think that somehow I am going to put them into hypnosis and tell them that they no longer stutter, or whatever. They assume that suggesting away the symptom is all it takes. However, we should be asking the question: Why? Why has that person developed that problem in the first place?

Hypnoanalysis is an approach using conscious questioning and hypnosis that goes beyond the symptoms of a problem and works on the basis of cause and effect and looks as the “root” cause of the problem, issue or difficulty. For every effect (symptom) there has to be a cause. It doesn’t make sense that one person should have panic attacks or depressed mood and the next person doesn’t. What makes them different? Where did it all begin? The analytical process exposes and extinguishes the cause and as a result the symptom is removed.

So what is the cause? With most people is it bottled up emotion. Emotion that has been packed away inside the person for years. Some of it they don’t even remember. If you spoke to someone for long enough about when you were a child, it wouldn’t take too long before they were describing an event when you got upset; and you have no recollection of it at all.

What Happens In The Sessions

In analytical hypnotherapy you play an active role in the process. In the sessions you get comfy, whereupon I filter in some soothing music and gently induce you into a light relaxing hypnosis. Once relaxed you engage in a process of pure free-association. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that is yet. I’ll explain exactly what you need to do at the beginning of your treatment. If you’ve ever played the word association game, in which someone says a word and then you say the very first thing that pops into your head – it’s a lot like that, only using your memories and experiences instead of words. The process of free-association often leads to a surprising and liberating insight into the unresolved conflicts that lay at the root of your symptoms.

Hypnotherapy – Analytical

How Does Analytical Hypnotherapy Work?

In certain situations, people’s symptoms can be caused by unconscious internal conflicts. An internal conflict is exactly as it sounds. A previous experience, often one from childhood, leaves you feeling troubled and distressed. While it remains unresolved it can fester in the unconscious and cause a whole host of symptomatic experiences. The reason that it is usually a childhood experience is due to the fact that in childhood we haven’t yet developed the psychological capacity or understanding to properly process certain things. The combination of free-association under hypnosis enables you to side-step the normal defences that prevent you from fully resolving the issue. In certain situations, the procedure can be carried out without the use of hypnosis, however it may take a little longer.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Analytical hypnotherapy typically requires around 6 – 12 sessions, however, many people complete therapy in about 8 sessions. Sessions last one hour and they are spaced at weekly intervals.

Some Of The Positives Of Hypnotherapy Are:

  • The power to change or replace negative patterns, thoughts, and habits with new positive beliefs and patterns such as addictions
  • Developing a deep sense of calm and relaxation not unlike meditation
  • Helps you to awaken and connect with the greater potentials of your mind
  • Understanding more about your inner programming
  • Opens up a way for new perspectives and awareness
  • Empowers and energises you into new life directions
