Clinical Hypnosis Q&A

What is clinical hypnosis?

Clinical hypnosis is a therapeutic tool for the treatment of mental health symptoms. It’s an evidence-based complementary therapy that places you in a trance-like state to encourage cognitive, physical, and emotional healing.

When in a trance, you feel relaxed and focused, and your mind is more open to suggestions. 

Dr. Jaffe holds a Doctorate in Philosophy and Hypnotherapy from the American Institute of Hypnotherapy in Irvine, California. Through clinical hypnosis, he may be able to change your thoughts, behaviors, and perceptions to help you reach your mental health goals. 

Am I a candidate for clinical hypnosis?

Dr. Jaffe takes an individualized and holistic approach to therapy. After he identifies the areas he wants to focus on following your initial consultation, he customizes your therapy sessions to best meet your mental and emotional needs.

You may be a candidate for clinical hypnosis if you want to gain control over undesired behaviors or learn better ways to cope with stress, anxiety, or trauma. 

Dr. Jaffe may also recommend clinical hypnosis for specific mental health conditions such as an anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

Clinical hypnosis is a safe and effective treatment, however, you must be open to this complementary treatment to gain the most benefits.

What happens during clinical hypnosis?

Dr. Jaffe customizes your clinical hypnosis based on your specific needs and treatment goals. He reviews the details and what you can expect before your hypnosis session. 

During clinical hypnosis, Dr. Jaffe uses his advanced training to help you relax and enter into a trance-like state. Then, he uses verbal repetition and mental imagery to help you achieve your goals. 

You’re in complete control of your behavior during clinical hypnosis, and you remember the session afterward. 

What can I expect after clinical hypnosis?

Dr. Jaffe uses clinical hypnosis to help you reach your mental, emotional, and physical health goals. If open and receptive, you may experience positive changes following your session. He may include other forms of psychotherapy along with clinical hypnosis, so you gain the most benefits.
