In a review of literature published in Psychotherapy: Theory Research and Practice [1] various types of techniques were profiled for their success. The percentages speak for themselves.

  • Hypnosis: 93% recovery after 6 sessions (about 1.5 -2 months)
  • Behavior Therapy: 72% after 22 sessions (about 6 months)
  • Psychotherapy: 38% recovery after 600 sessions (about 11 1/2 years).

“Hypnosis often is used to modify behavior, overcome fears and eliminate bad habits. It assists you in making permanent changes that you’ve been unable to make otherwise.”

Hypnosis works because it addresses problems at the level at which they are occurring. For most people seeing to change their habits, their habits are behaviors that were done once or twice and then automated to the level on unconscious behavior. So, if a problem is occurring and reoccurring at the level of the unconscious mind then it needs to be changed at the level of the unconscious mind.

This is essential how hypnosis works and why it works compared to other therapies, many of which are useful to some degree.

Hypnosis fixes problems at the level of the unconscious mind where they are occurring and being replicated.

So, in the future the new or desired behaviour gets acted out when a context or environment presents itself where the desired behavior is required or seems to be appropriate.

The added benefit of this is that by changing with hypnosis no conscious motivation or will power is required. What surprises many clients with hypnosis isn’t how effective it is, but how easy it is as well.
