Cognitive Hypnotherapy – What is it About?
If you’re looking for pocket watches and stage antics – I’m afraid that’s not me! We will simply start with a good old chat.
Cognitive hypnotherapy dives into the subconscious workings of our mind and the connections we make to events from the time we are very young. Together we will explore the relationship your conscious and unconscious mind have developed over the years. Whether some of the connections and the meanings that have been attached to behaviour, emotions, environment and your own capabilities may need to be addressed and reframed.
As humans we love patterns….. the brain loves repetition – it means it doesn’t have to work so hard! Very often we can get stuck in negative patterns that are doing nothing to help us move forward and achieve what we know, deep down we are capable of.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a modern approach to therapy – it uses various elements and techniques from therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Traditional Hypnotherapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) – among others. This enables us to create a bespoke therapy plan for every individual tailored to their problem and more importantly – their solution!
Below are some of the key foundations that Cognitive Hypnotherapy are built on and all aspects are taken into consideration during our time together.
Trance is an everyday state
Trance is an everyday state that we find ourselves in more often than you might realise. Ever been on the train and wondered how on earth did you reach your stop so quickly. Ever been staring out of the window and lost yourself for a moment? This is trance and it’s a state we all go in and out of many times a day. It is during these time that the subconscious is in the driving seat and we go into auto pilot. If you have developed patterns that hold you back in life and stop you from leading the life you want to – then take a deep breath because you are exactly where you need to be!
Every behaviour has a positive intention
The subconscious is always working to protect you in the best way it knows how….
At times you might find yourself behaving in ways that seem to be damaging to you and are doing you no favours. This could just be where your software needs updating! The subconscious will continue to run the same programmes over and over again unless it is updated.
The definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result…. !?
Unique and tailored approach
We won’t be coming at you with a book of scripts when you come to see a Cognitive Hypnotherapist. One of the core beliefs is that everyone’s story is unique to them. No one person’s journey is the same as another’s – therefore all the work that we do needs to be tailored to you in order to make it effective and create lasting change.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy explained in 3 minutes…..
I offer online sessions for those who prefer to work in this way. It means that we can be really flexible on times and days and of course it doesn’t matter what part of the world you are in.
It is an incredibly effective way of working and we can work through either Facetime or Zoom equally well.
Face to Face
Should you be more comfortable with face to face sessions I use a lovely therapy room in Hornchurch RM12 which has nearby parking or is a short walk from Emerson Park over ground train station.
