In 1970, Alfred A. Barrios undertook a ground-breaking study, which led to the mainstream acceptance of hypnosis as an extremely effective form of therapy.
Barrios compared hypnosis, psychoanalytic therapy and behavioural therapy and noted the overall lasting success rates of the different therapies.
He found that hypnotherapy had a massive 93% success rate after only 6 sessions compared to only a 72% success rate with behavioural therapy, and only 38% success rate with psychotherapy.
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.
