Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy & Life Coaching 

 

It is an effective, relaxing and drug free choice for change. 

 

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy combines cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnosis with theories based on modern neuroscience.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a psychological approach rooted in scientific principles. It provides a framework to recognise and change from unhelpful thinking patterns which can cause difficulties in our lives to a more realistic and helpful one. It's based on the idea that it is not the event that causes us to respond in a particular way, but how we interpret the situation. Usually, based on our beliefs, that we have developed over time. It is a proven and effective therapeutic approach.

 

Hypnosis is common sense and down to earth therapy. It is a state of heightened suggestibility (focussed attention on a dominant expectant idea) where through thinking positively and using visualisation, hypnosis enables the desired response to take place. Thereby helping in achieving the desired goal. 

We all go into natural hypnotic trances every day without even knowing it. It's comparable to being so absorbed in a book or film that the hours seem to fly by, or being in a meeting where your mind has wandered. It is this natural state of mind that is used in cognitive hypnotherapy. You never lose control and are certainly never put under the control of anyone else. 

It directly influences the negative thoughts or irrational fears that prevent us from experiencing the full flavour of life. 

 

Combining the above two powerful and evidence-based approaches, an effective and long-lasting result can be achieved in just a few sessions.  Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is recognised as an effective intervention for stress-related disorders. It is recognised by the British Psychological Society, the American Medical Association and the National Institute of Clinical Excellence.
