What is it?
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is an evidence based, modern approach. It works by using a combination of some elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, Evolutionary Psychology, Counselling, Gestalt, Hypnosis and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP).
Cognitive Hypnotherapy has been used in a study published by the Mental Health Review Journal in 2015 for anxiety and depression, where 71% of the participants moved to recovery, versus 42% recovery when using other approaches.
Because everyone is unique, each individual is treated as such, so we tailor the sessions and plans just for you. Cognitive Hypnotherapy works with how you experience the World.
There are no pocket watches involved and you are always in control. I believe that trance is an everyday state and if you ever experienced going from home to work without remembering the actual route, that is trance.
We work together to reprogramme your brain, to help you achieve what you are looking for. Learning more about yourself. Because, all behavior has a positive intention; and the brain is always trying to protect us; we need to reprogramme the brain to learn how to react to some situations.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy believes in the body-mind connection, and the effect that the mind can have in our bodies as well as the effect of our bodies in our mind. So when working together, we have a holistic approach.
