What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy

Cognitive Hypnotherapy helps you find your own solution to your problems with me being the facilitator. Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a brief solution based therapy that guides you towards your own goals giving you the tools to reach them. During trance you will be in complete control and aware of what is going on unlike the impression given by stage hypnosis. Being in trance means I can communicate with your unconscious and the unconscious is more open to suggestion. Cognitive hypnotherapy helps identify negative problems and lets you gain control of your mind again.

We all go into trance several times a day, you will not stay in trance, if left, indefinitely and you don't even have to have your eyes shut, as many of us go into trance when driving or stroking the dog e.t.c

Cognitive means how we aquire knowledge and give it meaning. This type of therapy also deals with the imbalance between the conscious mind, which gives us logical thinking and the unconscious mind, which deals with instincts and habits.

The British Medical Association recognised hypnotherapy as a valid therapeutic intervention since 1955.

Which? Magazine reported that hypnotherapy is supported by more scientific research than any other complementary therapy (Which? Guide to Complementary Therapies, 2002).
