Cognitive Hypnotherapy draws from disciplines including – Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/tapping), Eye Movement Integration (EMI), Gestalt Therapy and Transactional Analysis.
There are three main principals behind Cognitive Hypnotherapy.
Trance is a state we all experience
When you start to daydream at the end of the team meeting or miss your tube stop because you’re so absorbed in your thoughts, you’re in a sort of trance. It’s during these trances that you might find yourself doing things you don’t want to do, like getting stressed or scared.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy helps you to come out of this altered state of consciousness and act in the way you really want to.
All behaviours have a positive purpose
Almost everything you do is driven by your unconscious, including the habits or behaviours you want to change. Your brain tries to guide you away from things that might harm you. But it can makes mistakes.
Luckily, you can change the way your brain is programmed, with the help of Cognitive Hypnotherapy.
People are unique
Cognitive Hypnotherapists listen to what their clients tell them and ask themselves ‘what’s that about?’ and ‘how can I use it?’ This means that every session is tailored specifically to you.
As a result of the work we do together, you’ll learn to stay in control when you’re in a situation that would once have worried or scared you.
