Hypnotherapy

Are you experiencing stress and anxiety? Would having more confidence change everything? Do you dream of waking up contented, calm and feeling good about yourself and your life?

I understand. These are issues I see every day in my practice. 

The good news is that with evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, you can start to feel better in just a few weeks. 

CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY DRIVEN BY EVIDENCE

Hypnotherapy is amazing because it works. Not by putting you in a trance. Or empowering your subconscious. Far from it. All the evidence shows that hypnosis is a normal psychological process that delivers incredible results. Best of all, it’s something each of us can learn, so that after just a few sessions, you can continue creating change for the rest of your life. 

I am committed to an entirely evidence-based practice. This means that the methods I use are long-established, peer-reviewed interventions and are aligned with the conclusions of, among others, the British Psychological Society, the British Medical Association and the American Medical Association.

THE CBH PROCESS:

1

EXPLORE​

Using psychological assessment tools, feedback and open questioning, together we will identify your therapy goal.

2

UNDERSTAND​

With your goal in mind, we will explore and identify your blockers and explore new approaches to systematically remove them from your path.

3

IMPLEMENT​

Now we move forward, using an integrated treatment plan including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), clinical hypnosis and mindfulness-based techniques. Together, these interventions will help you achieve your goal.

What is hypnosis?

First, let’s dispel some myths. Hypnosis doesn’t involve putting you into a trance. No-one will have control over you except you (and you will, much more than ever before) and it is as pleasant and relaxing as a spa-treatment with the added benefit of huge personal growth and self-mastery at the end.

Stage hypnotists have us fooled. Real hypnosis, as used for hypnotherapy, won’t make you lose control and it’s impossible to get stuck in hypnosis.  You will retain your free will and control and in most cases will have a full memory of the experience afterwards.

So, what is hypnosis? Hypnosis is a normal psychological process during which your attention becomes very focussed on a dominant idea, to the exclusion of everything else. Hypnosis is sometimes called imagination therapy and likened to conscious daydreaming. It is both deeply relaxing and hugely effective, enabling you to create change in a very fast and focussed way..
