In traditional therapy many patients might form resistance to therapy. Meaning there can be an impasse after a few sessions where patients might not be satisfied with the feedback or help they are receiving from their therapists. This holds true for many patients. Traditional therapy along with self-awareness and hypnotherapy might be able to break that barrier. For example, individuals with different addictions, couples facing marital issues, individuals with gender identity issues, people with phobias and stress do not have any control over their lives. They want to "find themselves", but they can't consciously "find" what they are looking for. They want to make their relationships better and more productive, but they don't know how. They want to be more motivated and study or stop having anxiety and stress, but they can't control themselves emotionally. They are simply being guided by their psycho-physiological forces. Research indicates therapeutic change can happen by becoming more aware about yourself through the use of therapy and sometimes with the help of hypnotherapy.
