What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?

We unknowingly experience hypnosis every day in life. It can happen when one looks out of the window, oblivious to the surroundings, deep in thoughts. It can happen when one buries the nose in a good book. This free-floating state of mind is almost synonymous with hypnosis. In the case of actual hypnosis, a professional hypnotist is the one who guides a clients’ trance state.

A trance state is nothing but a deeper level of relaxation also referred to as theta sleep. A professional hypnotist guides the client to find high concentration levels. The objective can differ from healing to self-discovery, freedom from stress, increased confidence or more as per the requirement. Using hypnosis, one has the access to the subconscious mind. So, this is an altered state of mind that goes beyond the ordinary consciousness, yet, can also be defined as a natural and spontaneous state which can be deepened gradually.

For e.g.: A person looking to drop smoking as a habit can find deep-rooted causes to this habit. It could be because he/she has associated stress with smoking and feels the urge to smoke when found in similar situations. Hypnotherapists correct this pattern of thinking through highly intense sessions bringing a wonderful change in life.

Hypnotherapy is the actual practice of hypnosis under the guidance of a professional hypnotist. Hypnotherapists use hypnosis as a tool to help their clients improve their health through intense therapy. The guidance of a hypnotherapist helps clients reach their subconscious mind wherein the deepest emotions and experiences are stored. By helping clients relax and get in touch with their innermost self, a hypnotherapist touches those parts of the subconscious mind to release repressed memories and behaviors that cause harm. Professional hypnotists are taught higher levels that introduce methods to help their clients arrive into a state of hypnosis and also return them back to the normal state of awareness. The deliberate use of this tool has found benefits in the field of medicine,counseling, training people to enrich their lives for leadership roles, entrepreneurship, public-speaking, sports, art, sales and much more.
