What is cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (CBH)?
Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy (CBH) combines cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with hypnosis. This gives you the tools to manage and overcome daily stress, and feelings of anxiety, as well as manage physical ailments.
Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy is designed to help you manage your problems by changing the way you think, and behave. By integrating techniques from CBT and combining it with hypnosis, CBH can provide you with the tools to deal with your problems in a positive way.
CBT is a talking therapy, which looks at current problems, rather than past traumas. It focuses on our ability to change by altering how we think, feel and behave in certain situations. When you add hypnosis into the mix, we’re able to access the ‘daydream state’ in which we are more able to accept positive direction and suggestion, while our conscious thoughts are suspended.
Conventionally used to help manage depression and anxiety disorders, cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy can also assist in overcoming unwanted habits, such as smoking or teeth grinding, and dealing with emotional issues, such as low self-esteem.
