CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) is a talking therapy. It has been proven to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions. CBT looks at the way in which we think about a situation and how this affects the way in which we act. In turn our actions can affect how we think and feel.
Hypnotherapy utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. The process itself aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focusing the subconscious part. This heightened state of awareness - reached using skilled relaxation techniques - allows the therapist to then make appropriate positive suggestions.
CBT and Hypnotherapy compliment each other very well. You, the client, can learn how to make changes in your thinking, perceptions and behaviour. Hypnotherapy helps the process and can effect change quickly and effectively.
