What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy?

Have you ever felt as though you were battling something?

When my clients in my Manchester hypnotherapy clinic tell me they feel like ‘something’ is holding them back, I reassure them that they are not alone. After all as much as 90% of our behaviour is driven by our unconscious mind. Whilst the intention of the unconscious is to protect us from harm, it can take over in certain situations where it anticipates bad experiences in the past are at risk of being repeated. These automatic, unconscious reactions can often feel inexplicable and difficult to control.

In Cognitive Hypnotherapy sessions we use light trance in order to guide your unconscious mind towards the solution you desire. Trance is a state that we experience every day, whether it’s becoming engrossed in your favourite TV programme or day dreaming during a boring meeting. During a Cognitive Hypnotherapy session you always remain in control and actively engage in the process, as we work towards the state you desire.

As a Cognitive Hypnotherapist I recognize that the reasons for you coming to see me are completely unique. Unlike traditional hypnotherapists, I do not rely on set scripts or approach sessions according to the face value of your issue. Instead, I tailor my approach to the way your mind works which brings you effective, lasting positive change in your life.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is the only form of hypnotherapy which is supported by an evidence base in relation to anxiety and depression. You can read about the exciting research project which evidences its effectiveness here.

‘Since working with Sally, I have noticed a change in my behaviour and in my emotions. I now notice, often after the event, how something that had previously upset me no longer does. I feel so much brighter and in control of my life and now know that I can cope with anything.  Some things may be more difficult to control than others but no matter what, in my mind, I will cope’.
