The rationale for referring to 'hypnocounseling' rather than to 'hypnotherapy' lies in the rejection of the medical model for dealing with behavioral problems. Hypnocounseling is a modality of mental health counseling, a body of knowledge which can be applied to the framework of any personality theory by a trained mental health counselor of any established approach or theoretical background. Some of its features are a de-emphasis on hypnotizability as a trait, an emphasis on voluntary activation of skills in a creative cognitive/experiential process, and the change of control focus from hypnotist to client. Clinical uses of hypnocounseling include exploration, evaluation, symptom alleviation, ego enhancement, and mental rehearsal. (Author/HLM)
