Some hypnotherapists cite a comparison study published in American Health Magazine, stating that psychoanalysis results in 38% recovery after 600 sessions, behavior therapy results in 72% recovery after 22 sessions, and hypnotherapy results in 93% recovery after 6 sessions.
Obviously, this information is cited to imply that hypnotherapy is a superior approach through which to achieve recovery. I find no evidence-based research that supports these findings. In my professional opinion, the dissemination of such misleading and self-serving information is irresponsible!
Hypnotherapy is proven to be very effective in areas of self-improvement counseling. It also works very well as a complement to treatment by way of referral from a psychologist, dentist, or medical doctor.
