What is cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy?
My work uses a common sense “cognitive-behavioural model of hypnosis”, which is integrated with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based approaches, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is based on experimental and clinical mainstream psychological research. There is no mystical ‘trance’ state, nor is there anything like you may have seen in stage hypnosis entertainment!
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy teaches self-hypnosis as a skill that almost any client can learn and practice. The client is actively “doing” self-hypnosis rather than being a passive recipient.
