Many people have at least heard of Cognitive Hypnotherapy before, but not everyone is aware of the hard-hitting benefits that it often comes with. Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective treatment method for many people, and it may be the perfect approach for you. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits that Cognitive Hypnotherapy can bring and schedule your first session at Revibe Therapy in Winter Park and Lake Nona.


One of the major benefits that comes with Cognitive Hypnotherapy at Revibe Therapy is the assistance in staying present. This may sound strange at first, but Cognitive Hypnotherapy often involves people reliving and processing past traumas and painful memories. When reliving painful memories/trauma, it can be easy for the person to get swept away in the moment and become lost in the trauma rather than staying present. Being present and understanding you are safe is a massive benefit when it comes to Cognitive Hypnotherapy and working through past trauma.


Because of its ability to help people stay present, among other therapeutic tools, Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a highly effective mode of therapy for treating PTSD and other disorders involving past trauma. This is in part due to Cognitive Hypnotherapy helping you stay present and feel safe while remembering past traumas. But Cognitive Hypnotherapy also uses positive guided imagery to replace the damaging and painful thoughts and memories with something positive/pleasant. Due to the way Cognitive Hypnotherapy is structured and administered, it is a commonly implemented method for treating PTSD and other trauma disorders.


The calming and positive imagery is one of the benefits of Cognitive Hypnotherapy that clients seem to enjoy the most. The positive guided imagery that Cognitive Hypnotherapy aids clients in feeling more relaxed, lowering blood pressure, and influences their overall emotional state. The guided imagery process attempts to replace painful thoughts and memories with more pleasant images that help you to meet your goals and overcome any psychological hurdles. Cognitive Hypnotherapy does not “erase” your trauma or painful memories so much as it equips you with the psychological/emotional tools to properly handle them. This essentially lessens those effects and takes away the power that the memory holds over you.


While Cognitive Hypnotherapy is very often used to treat PTSD, it can also have promising results when used to combat other mental health disorders. In some cases, Cognitive Hypnotherapy is used to help those with:

  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Compulsivities
  • Phobias
  • Grief
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • And More

While Cognitive Hypnotherapy may not be the best treatment for every situation, it is a very effective mode of therapy when applied to the proper situations and clients.

There are no one-and-done treatments that exist. But, there are some modes of therapy that often require fewer sessions relative to other treatment methods. Cognitive Hypnotherapy takes time, dedication, and effort. That said, Cognitive Hypnotherapy can typically be performed from start-to-finish in six to eight sessions. Your specific situation may vary due to the severity of symptoms, how long ago the traumatic event occurred, the condition being treated, and other factors. It’s also worth noting that once you have completed all of the sessions, you will still have to work to implement the tools you gained in therapy and maintain your improved state of mind.
