Powerful Motivational Techniques

What’s Medical Hypnosis?

Did the word “hypnosis” make you skeptically raise your eyebrows? You’re not alone. Most people think of wacky hypnotists in capes and weird hats swinging a pocket watch in front of someone and telling them to cluck like a chicken. 

That is NOT what this is.

Medical hypnosis—also known as clinical hypnosis, self-hypnosis, visualization, and mental imagery—simply involves creating a highly  focused state of mind that allows you to access your internal ability to change a pattern of thinking and behaviors.

It is a learned skill that is strengthened with continued practice.


What is CBT?

In simplest terms, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT for short, is a set of therapeutic techniques that helps you change your thoughts, which helps you change your feelings and your behaviors. The belief is that your thoughts lead to feelings, which usually lead to actions. So by going back to the source—the thought—and replacing a negative one with a positive one, or figuring out a new way to look at something, your feelings and behaviors will likely change as well.

Negative thought > Negative feeling > NEGATIVE BEHAVIOR

So the goal of CBT techniques is to change this sequence to:

Negative thought > Positive thought > Positive feeling > POSITIVE BEHAVIOR

TEAM-CBT was developed by David Burns, MD. It is an evidence-based framework that can be used to enhance all schools of therapy. For more about TEAM-CBT, click here.

Cognitive Techniques
Cognitive therapeutic techniques focus on retraining your mind to achieve a specific goal. Some common examples include:

  • Identifying and challenging irrational or negative thoughts
  • Becoming more confident in your own internal resources
  • Calming self-talk

Behavioral Techniques
As the name implies, behavioral therapeutic techniques specifically address the actions that result from negative or anxious thoughts and feelings. These might include:

  • Tolerating fear rather than avoiding it
  • Breaking prior patterns of behavior and learning to respond in new ways
  • Deep-breathing exercises

What are Motivational Techniques?

These methods involve the clinician asking certain questions that help patients find their own internal reasons to become more open to change. Common motivational interviewing approaches include:

  • Asking open-ended questions
  • Making statements that support the patient’s self-efficacy
  • Eliciting “change talk”
