The global pandemic has caused many physical businesses and clinics to close. Luckily, the online world has paved the way for effective communication even when at home. With that, if you’re worried you may not be able to get your hypnotherapy session anymore, don’t fret—you can still get the therapy you need online.
There are many benefits to online hypnotherapy compared to clinic-based hypnotherapy. Whether you do it online or physically, hypnotherapy is a respected treatment for anxiety, depression, insomnia and irritable bowel syndrome. It also aids in weight loss, smoking cessation and sports performance.
Indeed, with hypnotherapy, you can overcome a lot of internal issues you’re going through without the need to take any medications for it. That’s why if you’re struggling due to lockdown restrictions in your area, online hypnotherapy can help you.
Can I Just As Easily Receive Hypnotherapy Online?
Yes, you can receive online hypnotherapy just as easily as booking face to face, if not even easier. With all of the technology available now you can have online hypnotherapy via Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp, or Goole Meet (formerly Google Hangouts).
Most online therapy sessions I undertake are via Google Meet due to the simplicity of it. You don’t need to download any software to use it and you can receive a link for online hypnotherapy within a minute of arranging the appointment. We will have an initial online consultation where you can ask questions about what to expect and share details about what you would like help with. Just as with in-person sessions, all online hypnotherapy consultations are completely confidential and a great way for you to get to know your hypnotherapy practitioner.
You can have your online hypnotherapy on your mobile phone, table, laptop or desktop computer from the comfort of your own home. Each therapy session you have will be run in a very similar way to having hypnotherapy in person.
Here Are The Benefits of Online Hypnotherapy:
- It’s More Convenient
The most obvious benefit of an online hypnotherapy session is its convenience. You don’t need to travel to the clinic because all you need is to join a video call and you’re all set.
You can even schedule your sessions at times that are more convenient for you. Moreover, you are not restricted to when the clinic is open because many therapists offer evening and weekend online sessions.
- It’s More Affordable
Another advantage of online hypnotherapy is that it’s more affordable compared to a clinic-based one. You don’t need to worry about the cost of petrol and wear and tear on your car. Or, you don’t need to pay for the commute to the clinic. With that, you get significant savings.
- It’s More Relaxing
For some people, travelling to a physical clinic can be anxiety-inducing. Now, with online therapy, you don’t need to worry about that because you can do it from the comfort of your home. By doing so, you get to be more calm and relaxed before and after your session.
- It’s More Flexible
One of the good things about an online hypnotherapy session is that you won’t be limited to one therapist. You can choose from a lot of therapists than ever before from all over the world. That means you will be able to find someone who will perfectly match your needs. Don’t worry; the search is easy!
- It’s More Private
When it comes to hypnotherapy sessions, you want them to be as private as possible. Through online sessions, you can keep your issue between you and your therapist.
How Does Hypnotherapy Work Online?
Will online hypnotherapy work pretty much the same as face to face hypnotherapy? Much like in face to face sessions, you will be able to go into the hypnotic state with online hypnotherapy. When you are receiving hypnotherapy online there are some things to consider.
It is important for you to make sure that you aren’t going to be disturbed. Organise deliveries to go to another address, silence your home phone, put a do not knock or disturb sign on your front door, keep children and pets somewhere where they won’t interfere with your online hypnotherapy, etc.
Doing hypnotherapy online means you have to be more responsible about making sure that the sessions go ahead smoothly and without incidents. Whereas, with face to face hypnotherapy sessions, it is the hypnotherapist’s responsibility to make sure that you won’t be disturbed while visiting their hypnotherapy practice.
Is Online Hypnotherapy Succesful or Worthwhile?
The good news is that, yes online hypnotherapy is as successful and worthwhile as face to face therapy. Some believe that online therapy sessions can even be better that face to face sessions! A review in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (Vol. 14, No. 4) stated that results “indicate that e-therapy seems to be at least equivalent to face-to-face therapy“. Online therapy lead to better progress according to the aforementioned report concluding so.
An online session is a safe and convenient alternative that you can enjoy in your own home. If you are having mental health issues that make it difficult for you to travel, then online services can be received anywhere that you have a reliable internet connection.
Some people like to have an initial chat online in their own home before deciding they would like to meet face to face instead. Only you know what is best for you.

- lose weight
- lower anxiety levels
- increase self-esteem
- learn how to be more relaxed and comfortable in your life
- beat depression
- pain management
We can have an initial chat online to look at how online hypnotherapy or in-person sessions can benefit you. This quick chat also gives you the opportunity to make sure that you are working with the right therapist for you.
