The Hypnotherapy Session
In the first instance we will have an initial phone conversation, to discuss what you want to achieve and how the process will work. Our Hypnotherapy session will then be booked for either Online usually via Zoom, or, for us to met face to face. Most of my clients prefer Online Hypnotherapy as they have the added security and comfort of being in their own home, plus no travelling time or costs.
During the actual Hypnotherapy sessions, you will feel relaxed but will be able to talk to me throughout. This involves being in a light trance, similar to when you find yourself day dreaming or on autopilot. You won’t do, or say anything that you aren't aware of, or aren't comfortable with. Working with your subconscious mind in this way, utilising visualisation and suggestions, can help to shift unhelpful ways of feeling, thinking or behaving.
There are no fixed ways of working and as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist I am trained to use a mix of proven techniques including Traditional Hypnosis, NLP, Time Line Reprocessing, Positive Psychology, and/or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. There will be no swinging watches in sight!
I will not be "doing" this to you - you will remain in control and I will be there as your facilitator and guide.
Why Cognitive Hypnotherapy
Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy is an Evidence-Based therapy.
I was trained by The Quest Institute. We are the only hypnotherapists that have evidence-based research specific to our approach to therapy.
The Mental Health Review Journal published a study in 2015, which discovered that Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy was 71% effective for the treatment of anxiety and depression in comparison to other pure talk therapies, like CBT which is often used within the NHS, and which had a lower result of being 42% effective. Published research
We believe all behaviour has a positive intention.
Studies suggest that approximately 90% of our behaviour is unconscious. Imagine what it would be like if we had to consciously make a decision about every behaviour we did - we would never get anything done!
We are all motivated to move towards things such as people, activities or behaviour, which our unconscious mind believes deliver a benefit. Whilst using its knowledge of what has happened to us in the past, we avoid doing things which we our personal belief system believes will bring us harm. For example, if you find yourself avoiding making a presentation, or hiding from spiders, then it’s probably because your unconscious has decided, at some point in the past, that these are a threat.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy aims to update our negative beliefs whether they are about ourselves, others or the the world around us, so they can be shaped into something more positive and supportive. So you can begin to feel in control of your life again.
We believe you and your issues are unique.
Traditional hypnotherapy is often a one size fits-all approach, sometimes just using hypnosis, and is heavily dependent on set scripts. However we all experience life in different ways and our problems are unique.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy, treats the individual and not just the label given to the problem. So I will completely tailor the treatment plan for you using a variety of different techniques depending on what is right for you.
I will give you mp3 recordings, to listen to at home.
This helps to further embed the hypnotic suggestions after the session.
