Being in hypnosis is not in itself therapeutic, but the specific suggestions made to a person in this state can profoundly alter their behaviour. This is the underlying principle of hypnotherapy and recent research confirms the view that hypnotic suggestions can effect positive change in physical and mental functions. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach that seeks to understand problems in terms of the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours. An extensive research base demonstrates its effectiveness in treating a wide range of problems, including depression and anxiety in many different forms. Many studies have shown that the combination of hypnosis and CBT – which is the philosophy guiding our practice – offers significant benefits in terms of speed of recovery and acquisition of life skills.
Research evidence shows that these methods are effective in achieving a wide range of desired outcomes in many different situations:
- stress management
- overcoming phobias, including fear of flying
- smoking cessation
- overcoming dental anxiety
- supporting the accomplishment of goals
- weight management
- improving performance (eg, sports and public speaking)
- controlling panic attacks
- managing stress-related psychosomatic problems (eg, insomnia and headache)
- coping with tinnitus
- raising self-esteem
- relieving social anxiety
- wart removal
- calming exam nerves
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Hypnosis + Psychotherapy = Hypnotherapy. We offer a scientific approach to hypnotherapy by basing all our treatments on substantiated psychological research findings. The success rate for hypnotic treatments is impressive, often achieving the desired result where other methods have failed. With consulting rooms in Thanet, Kent, and in central London, our hypnotherapy practice is well-placed to offer a personalised professional service to clients from across south-east England.
We offer all of our clients an initial consultation of approximately an hour-and-a-half. This gives you the opportunity to discuss whatever is causing concern and to learn more about the undeniable benefits of hypnotherapy. Each subsequent consultation runs for about an hour.
