Living with your thoughts or behaviours pulling you out of shape can make life challenging.

It often means that you’re focused on all the things that could go wrong rather than the things which are going well. It’s frustrating.

They can chip away at your self-confidence leaving you feeling trapped and unable to achieve the things you want.  It’s demoralising.

They can follow you everywhere you go. They come to bed with you and stop you from enjoying peaceful sleep.  It’s exhausting.

You don’t need to live like this. Using hypnotherapy online can enable you to change your mindset and live up to your full potential!

Online hypnotherapy – How does it work?

If you are considering using online hypnotherapy you may be wondering what it involves and how it can benefit you. This section sets out to answer any questions you may have about using hypnotherapy online.

The actual hypnotherapy session will usually follow the same format as it would if it were face-to-face. The only difference is that all the communication is done via online platforms such as Zoom. This makes it a particularly safe form of therapy that can take place from anywhere in the world provided there is a reliable internet connection.

Online hypnotherapy enables you to receive the same structured session and excellent level of service that you would during face-to-face therapy, but just from a location of your choice.

All parts of the of the hypnotherapy process, from the initial consultation through to the therapy itself can take place online. Much of a hypnotherapy session will be spent communicating, so as long as you can see and hear your hypnotherapist then how that it achieved is inconsequential to the results.

What are the benefits of using hypnotherapy online?

There are many reasons why clients prefer working online to the more traditional face-to-face format. It can make better use of time as there is no need to travel to and from appointments. As a result, it can be much more convenient and beneficial experience for many. It makes it possible to fit a therapy session into a busy day there is no need to add travel time onto either end.

It can also mean that you can enjoy your therapy sessions from different locations if necessary. As long as you are able to access a reliable internet connection then your therapy session can take place. This is particularly helpful if you wish to continue your therapy while you are on holiday or if you need to travel for work purposes.

Many people find driving and finding parking spaces quite stressful. Online hypnotherapy enables the session to take place from a location that is convenient to you, therefore you avoid the stress of having to travel to an appointment.

Many people seek therapy to help overcome anxiety-related issues, so conducting the session from their home makes sure that they don’t encounter unnecessary stress.

Additionally, if you are seeking help for social anxiety or agoraphobia then the necessity for you to leave your house is removed.

At some point during your hypnotherapy session, you will be guided into a relaxed trance state.

It is during this state of relaxation that your subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions enabling you to achieve the change that you were seeking.

One of the major benefits of being in a familiar environment is that you have the potential to deeply relax more quickly and enter this trance state more easily.

Online hypnotherapy means hypnotherapists can provide their services nationally and internationally. Prior to online hypnotherapy many people were limited to seeing a hypnotherapist from their local area. This meant that their choice was very limited.

Online hypnotherapy now enables you to choose a hypnotherapist based on their skill set, niche area, experience, and qualifications rather than their location. This means you to have access to a much wider range of hypnotherapists.

Is virtual hypnotherapy as effective as face-to-face hypnotherapy?

There is no difference in the structure of the session and the results achieved can be identical. It’s usually just a matter of personal preference whether a person favours online or face-to-face hypnotherapy.

Some people prefer face-to-face therapy as they value the ‘human touch’, whereas for others the convenience of face-to-face therapy wins out.

One is not necessarily better than the other, it usually just comes down to personal preference.

Can I be hyptonised online?

Everyone goes in and out of a natural trance state multiple times during the day. It is often referred to as a daydream-like state. Some people are very susceptible to hypnosis and can enter a deep hypnotic state very easily. For others, it takes longer, but everyone can be hypnotised.

As long as you can switch off and relax, you will have the ability to be hypnotised online. Being in the comfort of your own surroundings can make this process easier.

Other common questions

What is clinical hypnotherapy?

Clinical hypnotherapy means that the techniques and methods used are done solely to improve a person’s wellness and mental health leading to self-improvement.

This is different, for example, to the kind of hypnotherapy that you may have seen on television which is done solely for entertainment purposes.

 

How does hypnotherapy differ from using other types of treatment?

Hypnotherapy can be beneficial for anyone seeking self-improvement or help to overcome a particular mental health condition.

It differs from other forms of treatment as it primarily works with the subconscious rather than the conscious mind. Qualified hypnotherapists can help their clients to quickly access their subconscious mind in order to initiate the change they desire.

The subconscious mind is very powerful and responsible for around 97% of our thoughts. Hypnotherapy is a natural form of treatment that requires no additional medication for it to be effective.

 

Does hypnotherapy have any known side effects?

Hypnotherapy uses the state of hypnosis to enable people to make positive changes and begin the healing process. Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state that we go into regularly each day.

When a person is guided into a state of hypnosis by a hypnotherapist they will go into a deeper level of relaxation than they would normally. As a result, it is not recommended for people who experience conditions such as psychosis.

Can online hypnotherapy be combined with other types of treatment?

Yes. Hypnotherapy can be combined with other types of therapy such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to great effect.

Many treatments to help people overcome phobias will include both NLP and hypnotherapy to increase the effectiveness of the therapy.

 

Can I mix and match between online and face-to-face sessions?

Yes. It’s certainly possible to combine both of these methods without affecting the outcome of your treatment. If one day you are pushed for time choosing online hypnotherapy might be the best choice, whereas if you have a lighter workload you might value seeing your therapist face-to-face.

 

What do I need to benefit from online hypnotherapy?

There are just a few things that you need to make your sessions as effective as possible. You need to find a place free from distractions and somewhere comfortable to relax.

You will need a device that can be connected to the internet, this could be a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.

It makes no difference to the effectiveness of the session. You may, towards the end of your session, wish to move from a chair to your bed to achieve greater levels of relaxation, so in this instance the more portable the device used the better.

You will need a sufficiently fast internet connection to run the online platform. A standard broadband or fibre connection is usually perfectly adequate. To help make your online hypnotherapy session run as smoothly as possible it’s advisable to close down all other programs running in the background as this can sometimes interfere with the connection.

 

Are there any drawbacks to using online hypnotherapy?

If you don’t have a reliable internet connection then it will be difficult to benefit from online hypnotherapy. It is also important that you can relax, so if your household is particularly noisy and you don’t have a quiet room to go to then online hypnotherapy may not be the best option for you.

 

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural daydreaming state that we go into each day. It’s a state of deep relaxation. When the brain experiences these levels of relaxation it is better able to take in and act on suggestions for positive change.

 

Will I lose control during hypnosis?

No. Hypnosis is a state of focused attention. All hypnosis is in fact self hypnosis which means that you will remain in control at all times.

 

Can everyone be hyptonised?

Yes, everyone has the ability be hypnotised if they wish to. No one can be hypnotised against their will. Hypnosis is not mind control, it’s just a form of deep relaxation. Some people may take longer to achieve this level of relaxation but everyone has the ability to be hypnotised.

How many sessions will I need?

Whilst it is not possible to give an exact number, most people achieve the improvement they are looking for within 3 to 9 sessions. You will be given personalised support until the point you have overcome the problems that you first presented with.

You will leave with a variety of different tools giving you the confidence to go and live your life the way you want.

Can virtual hypnotherapy help with anxiety?

What is the difference between hypnotherapy and meditation?

Meditation and hypnotherapy have different purposes and approaches and use different techniques. Meditation is a self-improvement technique primarily used for relaxation, stress reduction, wellness and personal growth, focusing on achieving a state of inner peace and mindfulness.

With Hypnotherapy a hypnotherapist will induce a state of focused attention and relaxation, with the primary purpose of addressing specific psychological or behavioural issues, such as a fear, phobias, anxiety, or weight loss.

While both involve altered states of consciousness and relaxation, meditation is for general well-being and self-awareness, while hypnotherapy is a therapeutic tool used in clinical settings for targeted issue resolution.

What qualificiations should an online hypnotherapist have?

Online hypnotherapy does not have a specific qualification requirement. Any hypnotherapist with proper qualifications can offer online sessions as part of their services.

The title ‘hypnotherapist’ lacks a legal definition, so technically, anyone can adopt it. However, a reputable hypnotherapist typically holds a Hypnotherapy in Practise Diploma, obtained through rigorous 10-month theoretical and practical training. This qualification grants them the right to use the initials HPD after their name and allows membership in professional bodies such as the National Council of Hypnotherapy.

Furthermore, it’s crucial to assess a hypnotherapist’s track record with past clients. Examining reviews can provide valuable insights into their effectiveness and suitability for your needs.

How much does online hypnotherapy cost?

The cost of online hypnotherapy will change based on several factors.

Costs are normally based on; the area/ location the hypnotherapist is working from, the experience of the hypnotherapist, and whether complementary therapies are needed alongside hypnotherapy.

You can find out my current prices for hypnotherapy by using the following link; Cost of hypnotherapy 

 

 

Is online hypnotherapy covered by health insurance?

This will depend on your insurance provider. If your provider does include hypnotherapy in its policy then the usual practice is for you to pay for the sessions and then be reimbursed by your provider.

Being a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, along with other professional associations, ensures that I meet the requirements sought by insurance providers.

 

 

What scientific study exists to support the effectiveness of hypnotherapy?

A meta-analysis published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis in 2007 reviewed 18 studies and found that hypnotherapy was significantly more effective than no treatment or placebo interventions in reducing symptoms of specific phobias.

Another study published in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis in 2012 examined the efficacy of hypnosis in treating dental phobia and found that participants who received hypnotherapy experienced significant reductions in anxiety and fear compared to those who did not receive hypnosis.

Furthermore, neuroimaging studies have provided insights into the neurological mechanisms underlying hypnosis and its effects on phobic responses. Research using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has shown changes in brain activity associated with hypnosis, suggesting that hypnotherapy may modulate neural pathways involved in fear processing.

What conditions can you help overcome?

Online hypnotherapy can be used to help a wide variety of conditions. Your subconscious mind is responsible for roughly 97% of your thoughts and behaviours. You spend most of your day on autopilot, this means you tend to follow the same routines and engage in the same destructive habits without conscious thought. 

These habits and ways of thinking lie deep in the subconscious mind meaning therapies that only work with the conscious mind often prove to be ineffective. 

It’s highly likely that whatever the obstacle is that’s currently in your mind, online hypnotherapy can be used to help you overcome it.
