Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

The chief difference is that hypnotherapy includes therapeutic techniques as used by a councillor, psychotherapist or psychologist.  The only time we use a simple therapeutic technique in the hypnobirth course is when we are doing the Anxiety Release exercise.  If any of your clients have a mental health issue and are undergoing medical treatment, they should consult their healthcare practitioner before doing this exercise in class.  It may be appropriate to devise an individual care plan for them.
