Through a variety of simple techniques, I can work with you to look at your unconscious level beliefs and help you to change your experiences. I am a fully trained cognitive hypnotherapist and member of QCHPA professional body.
What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy?
Cognitive hypnotherapy is a gentle therapy that helps you make the changes you want in your life. Simple techniques are used to alleviate:
- Panic attacks
Sessions help to:
- Promote self confidence and self esteem
- Improve body image or weight loss
- Deal better with life challenges
- Manage relationships
- Facilitate career change
- Quit smoking
- Improve performance in work (e.g. public speaking), competitive sports and exams or
- Help you with chronic health conditions (such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Tinnitus, chronic pain management, post traumatic stress disorder and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to name but a few).
It's all about the unconscious mind….
Much of what we experience on a day to day basis is driven by the unconscious mind and when we experience unhelpful emotions, or responses to situations, it can feel like no matter how hard we try, we can't break out of them.
Chronic health conditions can also be affected by unconscious decisions and beliefs, and managing everyday life can be a struggle.
But the simplest things can create a shift in our perspective, and when this happens those unconscious responses are beginning to change.
Cognitive hypnotherapy uses techniques that help to communicate with the unconscious part of your mind to bring about the changes you want.
The therapy sessions are tailored to you and develop out of an initial consultation. The sessions will involve a number of techniques best suited for the change you want to make.
I trained in cognitive hypnotherapy with its founder, Trevor Silvester, at the world renowned Quest Institute in London. The techniques we use are taken from:
• Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and
• Positive psychology
Techniques used include Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or tapping, Regression and Gesalt.
Uniquely, cognitive hypnotherapy combines these techniques with the use of client-tailored 'Wordweaving'™ scripts - a way of speaking to the unconscious mind developed by Trevor himself.
If you are looking for increased confidence and self-esteem, reduced anxiety and stress or something more specific like performing better in exams or in sports, stopping smoking, losing weight, stopping nail bitting, changing your relationship with food or with your body, managing phobias or improvements in your health and wellbeing (including post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and ill health, tinnitus and irritable bowl syndrome, to name but a few), get in touch and we can discuss how cognitive hypnotherapy can help.
