How Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help you


Your mind is responsible for your mental, emotional and physical health. This happens subconscious to your normal awareness: ever since your birth you have been unconsciously programming your brain to enable you to be safe and successful in the world. Sometimes this programming needs updating and as hypnotherapy works in the subconscious realm of mind, it can therefore be used for a wide range and variety of issues.

What is hypnotherapy and how does it work?

Hypnotherapy is a safe and relaxing way of changing yourself and your experience of life. Have you ever drifted off in a business meeting or family gathering? Ever driven a car and found you were daydreaming for the previous few miles? Well, while your conscious mind was daydreaming, your unconscious mind was driving the car. Daydreaming is a normal everyday ‘mind in neutral’ light trance. Cognitive hypnotherapy uses this natural light trance state, to prime new connections in the unconscious mind that lead to a more positive outcome i.e. the change you want. As in a daydream, you remain in relaxed control throughout.


What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy?

Cognitive Hypnotherapy was developed by renowned author and trainer Trevor Silvester at the Quest Institute in London, it combines hypnotherapy with recent discoveries in Evolutionary Psychology, Positive Psychology, Cognitive theory and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), to change the meaning you make from your past experience. Thus you become free from inhibiting thought patterns which can hamper your current thinking and behaviour.


How many sessions will I need?

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a creative and productive process that can make a difference surprisingly quickly; problems can often be resolved within a small number of sessions – sometimes just one – and in this way provides great value for money.


Is it medically supported?

Yes. “Hypnotherapy is supported by more scientific research than any other complementary therapy”.

The Which? Guide to Complementary Therapies, 2002


"Enough studies have now accumulated to suggest that the inclusion of hypnotic procedures may be beneficial in the management and treatment of a wide range of conditions and problems encountered in the practice of medicine, psychiatry and psychotherapy."

The Professional Affairs Board of the British Psychological Society, 2001


Hypnotherapy has long been recognised as a successful intervention, even as far back as 1892 by the BMA (British Medical Association): “The Committee are of opinion that as a therapeutic agent, hypnotism is frequently effective in relieving pain, procuring sleep, and alleviating many functional ailments [i.e., 'neurotic' or 'psychogenic' conditions].
