Hypnotherapy is therapy conducted in hypnosis. In the UK, hypnotherapy is sometimes considered to be a branch of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), although it is also regarded by many as the original psychological therapy of the modern era.

Hypnotherapy was first developed in 1841 by the Scottish physician and surgeon, James Braid. He intended hypnotherapy to be a common sense and scientifically-sound method of using ordinary psychological and physical processes to achieve sometimes dramatic therapeutic benefits.
