Psychotherapy And Counselling
Of course there are alternatives to Hypnotherapy, such as Counselling and Psychotherapy, which is more of a talking therapy. It is not easy to distinguish between the two, counselling often involves working towards a goal and is generally short term, while psychotherapy refers to long-term work that explores issues in greater depth. Both are creative processes.Within these two area a variety of techniques is carried out which involves the therapist in sensitive listening, open exploration, interactive engagement, respectful challenge and mutual participation in the process. sometimes you will be encouraged to bring along material such as drawings, record of dreams, journals , poems, music etc…Always at the heart of this process is patient confidentiality, and sessions can last up to 6 weeks, but the therapist will discuss this with you at the time, it is not fixed in stone, and may require a more flexible approach.
