Hypnosis As A Tool In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy by George Pegios published on 2020-06-09T17:39:36Z Hypnosis as a tool in cognitive behavioral therapy Hypnosis is a tool that can be used in cognitive behavioral therapy. There is a process of hopelessness that leads the patient to request therapy. In this process, the patient realizes that, despite all the efforts he is making, he cannot get out of the problem he has and that he needs to ask an expert for help. In this process of feeling hopelessness, solutions that do not require effort, such as hypnosis, have a special attraction for the patient, because he feels unable to do anything by himself to solve his problem. However, hypnosis is not a therapy, it is only an aid or auxiliary tool, in all therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy.
