What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?

‘Hypnosis’ refers to the phenomenon itself - the state of heightened suggestibility where the subconscious mind is 'closer to the surface' and the conscious mind, which is often busy and thinking in day-to-day life, is more peaceful.

‘Hypnotherapy’ is the use of hypnosis within a therapy experience to help a person make positive change safely, effectively and often rapidly.
