Conversational Hypnosis

Conversational hypnosis, sometimes referred to as "covert" hypnosis or hypnosis without trance aims to elicit change in the subject's behaviour without the latter going through a formal trance induction. Since the communication takes place in a conversational manner, the technique, similar to indirect hypnosis, is called "conversational" hypnosis.

This technique is particularly useful for managing pain and anxiety, and is sometimes used by dentists. It can also be employed by sports coaches when working with athletes and sportsmen and women. In non-therapeutic settings, examples of conversational or covert hypnosis can be found in TV commercials and other forms of marketing.

Conversational hypnosis can also be used as a self-hypnosis technique.

Hypnotherapy for Addictions

A person is said to be addicted when a habit or substance makes normal life difficult or impossible, and the individual has little or no control over doing, taking or using something, to the point where it could be harmful to them.

Hypnotherapy for Pain Management

Research suggests that hypnosis has played some part in alleviating pain for well over a century. In many instances the client or patient is taught self or auto-hypnosis by the therapist in order to manage the pain, after a few initial sessions of hetero-hypnosis. This enables the individual to have more control over his or her life and also saves time and money, particularly if the pain is chronic

Pain can be beneficial and harmful at the same time. The role of hypnosis is to control and manage pain the cause of which is known and the pain is not the subject of medical intervention.

This CPD course is aimed at practising hypnotherapists and other therapists experienced in applied hypnosis, wishing to add this specialisation to their repertoire.

 Topics covered:

  • Nature and types of pain
  • Research into the application of hypnotherapy for pain relief
