Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy that utilises other therapies that are best appropriate for the individual client including: Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Positive Psychology, Evolutionary Psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and aspects of Psychotherapy. It is unique in concept and differs from traditional hypnotherapy by not reading from already written hypnotic scripts (all hypnotic suggestion in Cognitive Hypnotherapy is bespoke to the individual) and does not believe all clients need to be hypnotised – some clients, such as those with phobias, need to be dehypnotised. A main principle of Cognitive Hypnotherapy is that all clients have the tools to help themselves; the Therapist is the guide to finding these tools.
As a professionally qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist I use various techniques that are most appropriate to my clients. I do not treat the ‘label’ the client has been diagnosed with, I treat the individual. For example, two people with the same phobia can have very different treatments: the reasons why they have their phobias is unique to them and therefore their treatment is unique to them. This applies to every single client I treat, no matter what they come to see me for.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is continually evolving to include all the latest research in the above disciplines. This makes Cognitive Hypnotherapy a very effective method to treat all conditions and can help you with whatever you need assistance with.
