There are only a limited number of choices for certified hypnotherapists who offer hypnotherapy Boca Raton services. There are a few simple justifications for this, the most notable point being that the process to become a certified and licensed hypnotherapist in Boca Raton is anything but simple.
The recent increase in using hypnotherapy in counseling and professional therapy services is primarily due to the undeniable fact that hypnosis is one of the most successful forms of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) techniques. CAM methods like hypnotherapy, acupuncture, and aromatherapy are deemed as ‘complementary’ because they work in a way that assists the more traditional techniques generally practiced in the field of mental health, such as medication, individual counseling, and other common forms of psychotherapy.
This purpose of this article is to provide a brief overview of what hypnotherapy is, how hypnotherapy works, and who benefits from hypnotherapy the most.

What Is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the practice of aiding someone to enter into an altered state of consciousness, otherwise known as a hypnotic trance. Practicing hypnosis in therapy and counseling is useful because once a person enters into a hypnotic state, he or she becomes noticeably more relaxed, attentive, focused, and increasingly open to suggestion. During the session the client, through deeply relaxed, will always know and remember what is happening and will be empowered to accept or reject suggestions.
Licensed and certified hypnotherapists use this trance-like state to their advantage by helping to guide the person towards a certain goal, such as alleviating anxiety and panic attacks or reducing the urge to act on certain unwanted desires like smoking and overeating. These unwanted, unhealthy behaviors are often deeply ingrained inside the person’s mind and the desire to act on them (or the triggers that create the initial urge) can be almost impossible to break without extreme intervention.
How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
During a hypnotherapy session, the hypnotherapist will begin by providing a calming and soothing environment to promote relaxation while guiding them to reach a hypnotic state. This relaxed state enables you to access the subconscious mind where healing can take place. You will learn how to relax effectively, meet and learn how to access the Wise, Higher part of yourself to make healthy choices, treat yourself with compassion, and bring choice back to areas in your life you feel stuck. Behavioral changes come from healing the source of the trauma, stuck emotions, addictions, and habit patterns.
Hypnotherapy allows for deeper access below the thinking intellectual mind that often prevents us from deeper healing. This provides understanding of the source of dysfunction, distressing emotions, or patterns you are experiencing and a pathway to healthy choices available to cope in a way that supports your well-being.
Who Does Hypnotherapy Help?
Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a broad spectrum of mental disorders, conditions, and afflictions. It is commonly used to treat anxiety, PTSD, and depression and has proven successful in therapy for smoking cessation, weight loss, addiction, grief, trauma, and even sleep disorders.
The most important factor to achieve success in hypnotherapy is being open to the idea of trusting a hypnotherapist to guide your suggestible consciousness in a positive direction. There are countless uses for hypnotherapy in professional counseling and, when integrated with other psychotherapy techniques, there is great potential for successful treatment.
