What is Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy?


Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (CBT with hypnosis) is a cutting edge therapy which offers powerful techniques to help with a wide range of both emotional issues and physical ailments.


Designed to manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave, cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy will equip you to deal with your problems in a positive way by integrating hypnosis with traditional cognitive behavioural therapy.


Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy and looks at current problems rather than past traumas or events. When you add hypnotherapy into this mix and we enter a ‘day dreaming’ state, we are able to accept beneficial directions while our conscious thoughts are suspended. So although hypnosis is not a requirement of the therapy it can influence the effectiveness of the process.


What can Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy be used for?


CBT has conventionally been used to treat depression and anxiety disorders, but can be used for physical health conditions from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and skin conditions to pain management and bed wetting for both adults and children.


A vast range of emotional issues can be helped using cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy including low self-esteem, panic attacks, anger management, fear of failing, bereavement and relationship problems.


Another area that CBT with hypnosis can assist is dealing with bad habits such as smoking, teeth grinding and other unwanted habits. The same principles apply to phobias which react well to cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy treatment.


Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important and many of us struggle with weight control, weight loss hypnotherapy is an alternative treatment which can assist with losing weight.   Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy can go as far as you need such as gastric band hypnosis or helping with eating issues.


Even in business and your every day working life, CBT can help you to achieve goals that have felt out of your reach, from improving concentration and focusing on achievements to assistance with public speaking and performing.


Is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for you?


CBT focuses on an individual’s capacity to change themselves, altering how you think, feel and behave. Treatment doesn’t address outside problems or families which can impact on a person’s health and wellbeing. Therefore to benefit from cognitive behavioural therapy, it’s essential that you commit to the process, a therapist can advise and treat you but needs your full co-operation.
