Clinical hypnotherapy instead of mindfulness
Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy has demonstrated 70% enhanced treatment outcomes and long term remission compared to CBT alone, in meta-analysis of 18 relative studies.
Additionally, hypnosis sessions can also deal with associated phobias, substance abuse, eating disorders, low self esteem, social behavior patterns, motivation development, etc, commonly encountered in such patients, at the subconscious level.
Methods like reframing, ego reinforcement, releasing tension, taking responsibility, age progression, physical dissociation, metaphor, anchors, confusion techniques for facilitating specific amnesia, have profound long term impact.
Clinical hypnotherapy is widely used against for depression, anxiety, somatization syndromes.
Furthermore, overall necessary treatment with sessions of clinical hypnotherapy is much shorter than sessions of classical psychotherapy, CBT or mindfulness workshops.
