3 Styles of Hypnotherapy, Which is Right for You?

There are a number of styles used for hypnotherapy that are used by practitioners however, not all known styles work well for clients. One of the simplest methods that can help you know which style is the best to take is done easily by observing how you are responding to people telling you things what to do.

Say for example that you don’t like the idea of people telling you things of what you should be doing, then you better eye for permissive approach but if you are fine or feel more secure in people giving requests or directions, directive approach will be fine. You have to interview your prospective hypnotherapist regarding his or her style and training in order to know if you will be comfortable or responsive with their chosen approach.

In the next lines, you’re going to have a quick overview of different styles of hypnotherapy to understand what is best to take.

Directive approach – in this approach, what the hypnotherapist will do is guide the client in a state of hypnosis and then, gives suggestions on what to do. Actually, many people are familiar of such approach as this is the technique we see often in movies and stage hypnosis.

Basically, many styles of hypnotherapy is taking on this aspect. Simply telling the clients to be relaxed and comfortable and take deep breaths is a direct suggestion already. There is a high probability that direct suggestion will work if for instance the client is open, receptive and suggestible and that they are not having any problems in the focus of the hypnotherapy session.

Open ended style – here, rather than telling the client to close their eyes, the hypnotherapist is utilizing a permissive style of hypnosis that may use a permissive or embedded suggestion. In this suggestion, the language basically reflects what the client is actually experiencing and that they are free to whether or not respond to what’s being suggested.

In open ended style, hypnotherapists are using metaphor to teach clients new inner response to a given situation or to expand their resources and perception about the problem. Clients who are under this hypnosis style experiences to be more fluid, effortless and organic.

Transpersonal approach – most of the time, hypnotherapist invokes the inner wisdom of their client directly and asking for its support to guide the session. What happens then is enabling the client to access this wisdom and be able to work in it with trance through voice dialogue, symbolic communication etc. This style is supporting the cultivation of ongoing relationship of the client with his or her inner wisdom.
