What is the success rate of hypnosis?
In 1970 a groundbreaking analysis of hypnosis research study was conducted by Alfred A. Barrios, which led to the mainstream acceptance of hypnosis as an extremely effective form of therapy. Barrios compared 1018 studies and articles on Hypnosis, 899 articles on psychoanalytic therapy, and 355 on behavioural therapy. In this study he compares the overall lasting success rates of the different therapies. He found that hypnotherapy had a massive 93% success rate after only six sessions compared to only a 72% success rate with behavioural therapy after 22 sessions on average, and only 38% success rate with psychotherapy after an average of 600 sessions. This led him to conclude that for changing habits, thought patterns and actual behaviour hypnosis was not only the most effective method, but that it needed less time/sessions than any other type of therapy.
