Some of the cases of hypnosis have shown what seemed to be miraculous results. Hypnosis is not a miraculous power, it is merely a technique that enables your mind to access and use your own natural healing abilities, to assist in healing any area of the mind or body. Hypnosis allows your subconscious mind (inner mind) to accept positive suggestions that can increase self confidence, self acceptance, self love and self esteem, to create success patterns for life, learning and health. Hypnotic suggestions can release your unwanted patterns and strengthen those parts of your personality that you desire. Various imagery techniques are used to augment particular modes of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioural, Solution Focused, Systemic, and Psychodynamic approaches.Therapeutic techniques used during hypnotherapy include relaxation skills, desensitisation, imaginable exposure, aversion therapy, mental rehearsal, challenging unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, building on positive thoughts, ego-strengthening and self-esteem building, psycho-education, cue-controlled states and emotions ('anchoring'), ego-state or parts therapy, regression techniques (as part of therapy), dissociation, future pacing, visualisation, modifying distressing memories using imagery, direct and indirect suggestions, and use of metaphors.A research project in the UK found that 92% of those who had attended a hypnotherapist would recommend the experience to others. The Irish Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy claim an 80% success rate in treating clients for smoking.Hypnotherapy is not generally advisable for mentally disturbed or psychotic patients. Some psychiatric professionals do use hypnotherapy in conjunction with orthodox treatments for patients with such conditions, but always within an institutional environment where other forms of treatment are also available.Patients suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar conditions, suicidal tendencies, senility, alcohol or drug psychosis, pathological personalities or manic depression are generally advised not to undergo hypnotherapy.
While hypnotherapy is useful in alleviating mild cases of depression, it is contra-indicated for manic depression and bipolar conditions. It is also contraindicated in some cases of epilepsy.
