Hypnotherapy, also known as hypnosis, is a form of therapy that encourages positive change. If you have a new patient who has booked a hypnotherapy session, they may be anxious about what to expect for their first time. However, hypnosis is a calm and relaxing experience, so there is nothing for them to worry about. To learn how to get the most out of any hypnotherapy session for both you and your client, continue reading.
Have an open discussion
It's important that you have a positive and open relationship with your client. Encourage them to tell you about any fears or worries before a session, as this will help you to tailor the hypnosis to them. If anything’s holding them back or preventing them from being relaxed, it could impact the session. Being specific about what they want to achieve and how you can help will allow them to get the best results from hypnotherapy.
Be ready for change
When a client goes to a hypnotherapy session, they must be prepared and willing to change. If they don’t have the inner desire to change themselves for the better, then no hypnotherapy will be truly successful. Encourage your clients to accept the need for change, which can allow them to leave your session knowing that they are on the path of becoming a better person. This will make the sessions much more worthwhile for your client and you.
Don’t fear the end
For people who have had a positive experience, the thought of the sessions eventually ending can be daunting. Many people worry that they won’t be able to continue their new positive behaviours on their own. However, instead of fearing the end, you should tell your clients to embrace it. They should be proud of all they have achieved in improving themselves. Also, remind them that if needed, they can always return for follow up sessions to help get them back on track.
