The success rate of Hypnotherapy compared to a traditional type of therapy.
In 1970, Alfred A. Barrios conducted a meta-analysis of hypnosis research studies which led to the mainstream acceptance of hypnosis as an effective form of therapy.
Barrios compared 1,018 studies and articles on hypnosis, 899 articles on psychoanalytic therapy and 355 on behavioural therapy. He noted the overall lasting success rates of the different therapies.
Alfred Barrios conclusions:
93% success rate with Hypnotherapy after only 6 sessions
72% success rate with behavioural therapy (after 22 sessions on average) 38% success rate with psychotherapy (after an average of 600 sessions).
Concluding that for changing habits, thought patterns, and actual behaviour hypnosis was not only the most effective method but that it needed less time/sessions than any other type of therapy.
What is Hypnosis?
Opinions vary on the exact definition of this natural state of mind. First of all, contrary to what is commonly believed by many, hypnosis is NOT a ‘sleep’ state even though a person in hypnosis may appear to be sleeping. There is no legal definition of hypnosis. Webster’s dictionary describes it incorrectly as an artificially induced sleep, but it is actually a natural state of mind and induced normally in everyday living much more often than it is induced artificially. Every time we become engrossed in a novel or a motion picture, we are in a natural hypnotic trance.
Does a hypnotized person give up control?
Do we give up control of our minds during a film? When is the last time you got so involved during a film or TV show that you actually felt emotion? You were literally in a hypnotic trance, although you still have the power to emerge from that state if desired. Your mind may be guided by a film, TV show, self-hypnosis tape, or Hypnotherapist, but YOU still have the power to resist. Even though there are some people who seem to at least partially give up control of their minds, that is because of misunderstanding. Certainly, one can be TRICKED into believing that he/she has ‘given up control’ in some forms of stage hypnosis. ALL HYPNOSIS IS SELF- HYPNOSIS. Once people really understand this fact, they may enter deep states of hypnosis while still retaining the power to resist unwanted suggestions.
How does hypnosis feel?
Since hypnosis is a natural state of mind, clients are often surprised that they hear every word. Unless one enters a deeper state, or at least a medium state, he or she may not ‘feel’ any different than when relaxing in the favourite easy chair with a good book. One may feel quite mellow, and may feel light (or weightless), or very heavy as if sinking into the chair. If one enters a really deep state, the feeling may be euphoric for some, or almost like being intoxicated without the side effects. In a light state, it is entirely possible for a client to believe that he or she was not hypnotized; so it is important for a Hypnotherapist to know how to competently handle the pre- induction discussion as well as the discussion after hypnosis.
There are certain abilities which are enhanced during the actual hypnotic process itself: (a) the ability to IMAGINE, (b) the ability to REMEMBER, (c) the CREATIVE abilities, and (d) RESPONSIVENESS TO SUGGESTIONS. Naturally, it is this last ability, which creates the appeal of hypnosis to some and the fear of hypnosis to others.
What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for self-improvement and/or the release of challenges. All hypnotherapy employs hypnosis; but not all hypnosis is hypnotherapy. Additionally, mastering the art of hypnosis does not necessarily mean one is qualified as a Hypnotherapist. Contrary to what many might believe, there is more to helping someone overcome an unwanted habit than simply giving hypnotic suggestions. If a person’s subconscious resists positive suggestions for goal achievement, the competently trained Hypnotherapist is far more likely to be of service than those with minimal training in hypnosis, or who are simply self-taught.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking any one trainer is qualified to be an authority in hypnotherapy. None of us has all the answers, and I do not recognise anyone as the ‘leading authority’ in hypnosis. We are all still learning.
Is hypnosis dangerous?
Hypnosis itself is not dangerous. If it were, we would all be in jeopardy every time we get engrossed in a good book, film, or TV show. But unwise use of suggestion may create the opposite of the desired results if the person using hypnosis does not understand the disciplines of suggestion structure.
For example, a suggestion such as “You don’t like chocolate” will cause someone to imagine chocolate, and imagination is the language of the subconscious!
What we say and how we say it creates images in the subconscious, which does not know the difference between fact and fantasy. (If you don’t believe that last statement, hold your arms out in front of you and close your eyes. Then imagine a
bucket in one hand and 100 helium balloons in the other. Imagine SEEING water pour into the bucket. HEAR it splashing, and FEEL the bucket getting heavy. After several seconds of deep breathing, open your eyes and notice where your arms are. Most people will notice a difference!) An untrained hypnotist often talks about the problems to be avoided; whereas most competent hypnotherapists focus on results — whether they use direct or indirect suggestions, or both.

The Top Ten Benefits of Hypnosis
So how can hypnosis really help you? What are the benefits of going through hypnosis? Those are the questions that most people ask when they first consider going to see a hypnotherapist. Because Hypnosis is considered an unconventional treatment in the West some people are a little apprehensive about considering it as a treatment. But when you think about these benefits that can come from Hypnosis you’ll see it’s really worth it:
1. Hypnosis can treat addictions
Food, alcohol, drugs, smoking, it doesn’t matter what you’re addicted to Hypnosis can help you kick the addiction. Hypnosis combined with physical treatment to get rid of your body’s physical addition to whatever you are addicted to is proven to help break addictions for good so that you don’t relapse and become addicted again within a short time.
2. Hypnosis can help you lose weight and keep it off
Sounds too good to be true right? But it’s not. Hypnosis has been proven to be 30% more effective than just dieting when it comes to weight loss. Medical professionals speculate that Hypnosis helps people who are hanging onto the extra weight for psychological reasons or people that overeat for psychological reasons eliminate their psychological need for extra fat or extra food which makes it easier for them to lose weight.
3. Hypnosis can help manage chronic pain
If you have a disease that leaves you in frequent pain like Fibromyalgia or Arthritis then you already know that sometimes it feels like nothing will stop the pain. When drugs and diet don’t help you manage your pain Hypnosis can. In many different scientific studies Hypnosis has been proven as an effective pain management technique. So if nothing else is working for you when it comes to controlling your pain, or if you don’t want to take prescription painkillers, you should try Hypnosis.
4. Hypnosis can help reduce stress
Stress is more than just annoyance. Stress can cause serious illness in people like heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and sleep disorders. If you have a lot of stress in your life and you feel like you can’t get it under control by using diet and exercise then it’s time to think about Hypnosis. Because Hypnosis involves putting you in a deep state of relaxation it gives your mind and body a chance to experience the relaxation that they desperately need.
5. Hypnosis can help deal with childhood issues
Childhood issues. Everyone has them. From serious abuse or other problems in the home to lack of self esteem or a need to be successful at all costs the issues and problems that you experienced as a child might still be impacting you today and causing you to make bad decisions or to not take very good care of yourself. Hypnosis is a great way to work through childhood issues and replace those negative messages about yourself with positive ones.
6. Hypnosis can cure sleep disorders
Millions of people suffer from sleep disorders that range from full insomnia to night terrors, wakeful sleep, sleepwalking, and the inability to fall into REM sleep which your body needs. Sleep disorders can cause a wide range of other problems like obesity and addiction to either sleeping medications or to caffeine or other stimulants in an effort to keep the body going even though it’s exhausted.
Sleep disorders are notoriously hard to treat. Many sleep disorders have an associated psychological condition that makes it necessary for people to get both psychological and physical treatment in order to be able to get some sleep. Hypnosis can help treat the psychological problem that is causing the sleep disturbance while at the same time it puts the body in a deeply relaxed state that helps the body and mind become rejuvenated.
7. Hypnosis can promote deep relaxation
If you have ever tried meditation you know already the great things that relaxation does for the mind and body. You can become more creative, better at problem solving, less irritable, and you can reduce your risk of health problems like heart disease or high blood pressure significantly if you meditate or relax regularly.
But if you have trouble relaxing, or if you never seem to be able to relax deeply enough to really feel refreshed, then you should try Hypnosis. Hypnosis is a wonderful way to experience truly deep relaxation that will make you feel much healthier.
8. Hypnosis can help you change your behavior
Are you the kind of person that is always snapping at others? Do you get irritated and angry often? Do you have trouble managing your anger? Hypnosis can help you change your behavior patterns so that you can be healthier and happier.
Often behavioral patterns are learned in childhood, but a hypnotic suggestion given while you’re in a deep hypnotic state can help you get rid of those old messages telling you to behave in certain ways and replace the with messages to act in new, more appropriate ways. If you are trying to recover from the effects of a dysfunctional family or an abusive childhood using Hypnosis to help eliminate the unhealthy patterns that you learned to survive can be very therapeutic.
9. Hypnosis can help recover buried memories
All of the experiences that you’ve had throughout your life are buried in your brain somewhere. If you have lost touch with the parts of your brain that hold memories of your childhood Hypnosis can help you go back and remember the things that you need to remember in order to know why you act the way you act now. Typically this is used to help people that were abused as children understand their behavioral patterns but there can also be happy memories that you have forgotten as a result of an injury or accident that can be recovered with Hypnosis.
10. Hypnosis can help treat Anxiety and Depression
Many people are reluctant to take medication to treat Anxiety and Depression because they don’t want to become dependent on medication. Other people just can’t seem to find a medication that works for them. Hypnosis is a drug free and very effective way to calm Anxiety and to treat the symptoms of depression. By using hypnotic suggestions to eliminate the triggers of Anxiety and Depression people that suffer from Depression and Anxiety can sometimes find 100% relief from those conditions by using Hypnosis.
