My practice concentrates on methods that have been peer-reviewed and that you can read about in medical journals. In the hypnosis business, that approach is often referred to as "medical" or "clinical" and includes hypnosis for trauma, PTSD, pain management, anxiety, body image, and more.
To work with those issues, behavioral psychology and hypnosis go hand in hand. Someone once described a hypnotherapist as a "subconscious behaviorist," and I think that represents what I do pretty well.
It's interesting to note that with more and more research being conducted, modern medicine is increasingly recognizing the medical/clinical approach to hypnotherapy:
The American Medical Association:
"A legitimate treatment in medicine and dentistry."
The American Psychological Association:
"A powerful, effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders."
"Hypnosis can also help people change their habits, such as quitting smoking."
The Journal of the National Medical Association:
"Hypnosis can, when used by trained personnel, be of significant value to medical practice".
