Home / Hypnotherapy Explained / Suggestion Therapy

Suggestion Therapy is ‘normal’ hypnotherapy. When you hear the term ‘hypnotherapy’ used in the media, it is usually Suggestion Therapy which is being referred to.

During a hypnotherapy session, you will be relaxed into a calm, hypnotic state. You will remain in control and fully aware of everything. During this deeply relaxed state, you will be given suggestions which will continue to affect your thoughts, feelings and behaviour once you are out of the hypnotic state, hence the term ‘post-hypnotic suggestion’.

The type of suggestion given will depend on the symptom you want help with.

If you are stopping smoking, a typical suggestion would be ‘you will feel a huge sense of pride and pleasure now that you are a non-smoker’ or ‘you will find it easy to live your life as a non-smoker’. Note that ALL suggestions given will be completely positive and worded very carefully in order to get the very best results. Suggestion therapy is ideal for smokers wishing to stop, a person suffering from pre-exam nerves or any other type of anticipatory anxiety. Suggestion therapy has also been found to be very effective in pain management. Suggestion therapy only requires one, or maybe two sessions.
