At Stephen Jacobs Psychotherapy we offer clinical hypnotherapy for the treatment of conditions such as depression and chronic pain. Clinical hypnosis has become an established and vital component of behavioural medicine programs.
Hypnosis is often used integrated with other therapeutic modalities. In cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), a therapist might focus the client on recognising and correcting errors in information processing and use hypnosis to help make such process more natural and automatic.
Clinical hypnotherapy can help an anxious or depressed client manage her lack of sleep symptoms. While this may not seem to be a dramatic intervention, it is extremely valuable. Good sleep is essential to health. Similarly, hypnosis can help manage chronic pain, another life enhancing outcome.
Teaching skills, such as social skills or problem-solving skills, or promoting associations and dissociations are a part of almost any therapy.
Hypnosis allows one to structure interventions according to whatever aspects of experience might best serve the client to associate to or dissociate from (or to amplify or de-amplify).
