What is Online Hypnotherapy?
Online hypnotherapy is exactly what it sounds like – hypnotherapy online via zoom. Colloquially this is often called Skypenosis, but since the coronavirus pandemic Zoom has become the platform of choice for most online hypnotherapy sessions.
The advantages of Zoom over Skype are mostly technical, but of most interest to hypnotherapists and hypnotherapy clients is that Zoom seems to be more reliable and work better over slower or mobile connections.
Can you really be hypnotised over the Internet?
Hypnosis and hypnotherapy via the telephone have been on offer from some practitioners for years, and with the advent of video chat, it has become very easy to conduct hypnosis and hypnotherapy sessions via the Internet.
Hypnosis can work using just a recording of a voice, so an interactive video call is a very practicable medium for delivering hypnotherapy online.
It is no accident that broadcast of a hypnotic induction via radio or television is banned in most countries, and has been for many years.
Some adjustments need to be made to accommodate the technology, of course, but these don’t affect the outcome of the session and the results we get are just as good, regardless of whether we are working in-person or online.
Why would someone choose online hypnotherapy?
Most recently many hypnotherapists have started working online due to the restrictions put in place during the coronavirus pandemic.
Reasons can also include the location of a preferred or specialist practitioner, Agoraphobia (fear of being out in public places), incapacity or other reasons that make it difficult to leave the home.
Now we are all getting used to doing all sorts of things via Zoom, it’s becoming more and more common that working via online video platforms is just a preference for therapists and clients alike.
Whatever the reason, the opinions of those in the know is fairly unanimous, online hypnotherapy is a perfectly reasonable choice and is in no way a compromise.
