A comparison study by Dr. Alfred Barrios, published by American Health Magazine, shows the effectiveness of hypnotherapy compared to other forms of mental health counseling:
– Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
– Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
– Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions
My own clients have made comments that seem to substantiate the findings of this study.
Dr. Barrios received his BS from CalTech, and his PhD from UCLA.
According to Wikipedia, Barrios lectures to medical professionals across the country on the psychological approach to reviving the body’s natural defenses against cancer, an area in which he has achieved international recognition. In 1996, he received the first annual Cancer Federation Award from the Cancer Federation in psychoneuroimmunology, and was nominated for the Norman Cousins Award in Mind-Body Health.
