Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy
Cognitive Hypnotherapy uses the most modern knowledge of how the mind works. A therapy widely regarded as one of the most effective forms of therapy. The self-awareness that CBT offers renders it a highly successful way to quickly eliminate negative thoughts, emotions and limiting beliefs by changing the way you think and behave.
Integration of social, cognitive and behavioural psychology with traditional hypnosis. It is based upon various established models of theory and practice which pre-date the development of modern cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). Nevertheless, HCBT embraces the principle of evidence-based “technical eclecticism” (Lazarus) which encourages clinicians to seek proven methods from different modalities of psychological therapy and attempt to incorporate them within a consistent theoretical model.
Modern research on hypnotherapy is increasingly focused upon the integration of hypnotherapy and CBT since the publication in a mainstream peer-reviewed psychology journal of an influential meta-analysis carried out in 1995 by Irvine Kirsch research has shown that this approach is up to 80% more successful. This blend of psychological understanding allows hypnotherapists to create a personalised framework to help improve lives rapidly, achieving improvement which would have otherwise taken months, rather than the average 2 - 4 sessions which it takes today.
