An interesting piece of news recently informed us that a girl in London who developed a ‘phobia’ of Michael Jackson after watching his music video Thriller is seeking the help of a hypnotherapist to address the fear she had been hiding for years!
Hypnotherapy is perhaps one of the most misunderstood subjects associated with psychology. The subject often evokes disbelief or misconceptions among common people. Truth is that hypnotherapy is a very effective form of complementary psychotherapy that has the potential to heal serious issues originating in the mind. Sometimes, when counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy or even medication fails, hypnotherapy helps address the issues buried in the human subconscious mind.
Interestingly, we often fail to realize the power of our subconscious mind exercises over our perception and our day to day interaction. Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic tool that is usually clubbed with psychotherapy and counselling to help one enter the subconscious state of mind.
