When it comes to hypnosis as an alternate form of therapy, many clients experience that it is overwhelmingly more effective and faster acting than behavior therapy and even psychotherapy.
Compared to other forms of therapy, hypnosis is the obvious choice for many issues.
Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. reviewed the overall lasting success of various psychological approaches. This study revealed the following success rates:
Hypnotherapy — 93% success rate after 6 sessions
Behavior Therapy — 72% success rate after 22 sessions
Psychotherapy — 38% success rate after 600 sessions”
