CBH - Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy places great emphasis on the premis that it is not events, situations or experiences in our lives that cause emotional disturbance but the views and beliefs held about the events, situations or experiences.

A model is used to enable clients to understand & accept that we are mainly responsible for the way we feel and act about life events because of the beliefs or views we hold about these events. The beliefs held can be healthy or unhealthy & therefore unhelpful.

CBT uses techniques to dispute and weaken unhealthy beliefs in order to replace them with healthier and helpful beliefs allowing an effective healthier outlook.

Beliefs are held in the subconscious part of the mind so hypnosis is an effective tool to assist the work in changing unhealthy beliefs. In a state of hypnosis the subconscious part of the mind is more accessible to the client and therapist. During hypnosis weakening or strengthening of a belief that has already been disputed in an alert state is more effective and much more powerful.

Studies have been done which have found that CBH leads to a 70% greater improvement than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy alone.
