Individual sessions are offered for people who desire focused attention on specific personal goals. Hypnotherapists are not licensed physicians and hypnotherapy is not the practice of medicine. Hypnotherapy does not depend on a diagnosis, and hypnotherapists do not form diagnoses or give any advice concerning medical or mental health issues. Rather, the hypnotherapist helps guide individuals to a greater state of awareness to enable them to focus more deeply on attaining their desired outcomes.
Individual sessions are more intense than group sessions and are customized by the hypnotherapist to address desired outcomes identified by the individual. Hypnotherapy is frequently complementary to other healing arts, and individual sessions often incorporate breathing techniques, progressive full body relaxation, Gestalt techniques, Parts Therapy, Ideomotor Methods and hypnotic dream work, with the integration of other hypnotherapy modalities.
