Cognitive Hypnotherapy

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is an evidence-based solution focused therapy. It enables me to purposefully use a range of techniques ideas and tools to best support you in achieving your goals.

We are all unique. The great thing about cognitive hypnotherapy is that sessions are tailored specifically for you to achieve positive outcomes.

An Evidence-Based Approach

Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy (QCH) launched a unique research project in 2011. Using a team of QCH therapists, clients with anxiety and depression were assessed using the same outcome measures currently used to assess the effectiveness of talking therapies within the NHS. The pilot study was published in the Mental Health Review Journal in 2015. It recorded that, using 118 cases measuring the effectiveness of Cognitive Hypnotherapy for the treatment of depression and anxiety, 71% considered themselves recovered after an average of 4 sessions. This compared to an average of 42% for other approaches using the same measures (like CBT). To our knowledge, this is the only hypnotherapy approach to have been validated in this way. For further information concerning the research project and pilot study released in the Mental Health Review Journal please visit the evidence-based therapy research page.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy believes hypnotic states are a naturally occurring state of mind.  For example, when you daydream during that meeting or getting lost in your thoughts whilst driving.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is more like having a chat, where a trance state is naturally orchestrated.

Can I really change if I’ve had this problem for so long?
