Like in any other field, different approaches exist in hypnotherapy, such as the Ericksonian approach, the Hypno-Analysis and the Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy.
Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy is a cognitive-behavioral approach to hypnotherapy, based on a collaborative and skill training model.
Hypnosis is not a state of unconsciousness or sleep, nor a state of mind control. Hypnotherapy is effective when we are willing to accept suggested ideas and when we actively experience their effects in our imagination. During hypnosis, the subject is in control, focused, and feels more able to respond to positive suggestions at a profound level, to directly influence his emotions and behavior.
Non-state Cognitive Behavioral model works similarly to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
A Cognitive Behavioral model
Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy is a short-term therapy where we become more aware of our detrimental behaviors and thoughts, and where we learn to change them into beneficial ones. Through cognitive restructuration, we can help ourselves dealing with life and its challenges.
One of the main principle is that our anxieties, fears and feeling of powerlessness is not ruled by external circumstances but by the way we interpret them. The way we interpret an event shapes the way we behave, feel, and think about it. This perception can negatively affect our quality of life, but it is possible to learn new ways of approaching life, more positively. There is good evidence that adding hypnosis to CBT improve the outcomes of the therapy, by increasing the relaxation, attention and expectations of the subject.
