What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy and how does hypnosis work? How can a hypnotherapist help you?

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a modern form of hypnotherapy. It can help people overcome their issues and create change in areas that they feel need some attention. It’s a unique approach that is highly bespoke to each client.

‘Trust your unconscious. It knows more than you do.’ – Milton Erickson

It’s important that clients each receive a personal approach that is individual to them, as we all construct our experiences differently. Helping clients to understanding the way their own personalities work is a major part of Cognitive Hypnotherapy.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is constructed around transforming the unique way clients experience their symptoms to help them find a solution.

Most of the issues we face in life are created by limiting ideas, thoughts and beliefs that we have formulated from our past without actually realising what we are doing, much of it unconsciously. Such ideas, thoughts and beliefs can create a negative impact upon our everyday lives.

‘If you make friends with yourself, you can never be alone.’  – Maxwell Maltz

Many of our thoughts and ideas function below our conscious awareness. This can cause us to feel negativity without actually knowing why. When this happens, our minds can create repetitive, habitual problems that can feel difficult to understand or even control.

Cognitive hypnotherapy helps to reprogramme unwanted neural pathways that have been previously formed. When reprogramming has been achieved, you can experience freedom and an increased ability to take responsibility and to positively manage your mind.

‘Remove anger, regret, worry, resentment, guilt and blame. Then watch your health and life improve.’ – Charles F Glassman

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is best described as a natural phenomenon. It is a state of relaxation and concentration combined with heightened awareness.

Hypnosis is a deep natural state of physical relaxation, combined with a relaxed yet focused mind. Hypnosis is a state almost anyone can enter if they want to. You cannot be forced into hypnosis. It has to be voluntary. 

The client has to permit the hypnotherapist to enter the state of hypnosis. The hypnotherapist is simply the catalyst that enables a person to enter the state, by helping the client to relax their body and focusing their mind using their imagination. In many ways the hypnotherapist becomes the bus driver of the client’s mind. The client climbs aboard the bus and allows the hypnotherapist to take them from stop to stop, with the client’s agreement.

‘Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.’ – Henry Ford
The Cognitive Hypnotherapist

When a client enters the state of hypnosis, they are always completely aware of what is going on around them. The client can be completely oblivious to normal conscious distraction, but at the same time remain in complete control.

Some people believe that they cannot be hypnotised, which would suggest or imply that they cannot relax or enter a state of relaxation. The only reason for this belief is that most people do not realise when they are actually in the state. They do not feel any different other than the overwhelming feeling of being relaxed. 

There are many depths in the hypnotic scale, from a very light trance, where the client is almost in an awake state, to a very deep state. However deep the client goes, they are aware of their surroundings and nothing that affects their core values can occur.

‘Forgiveness is giving up hope of a better past.’ – Milton Erickson

Imagine how amazing it must be to uncover the true you, in a way that enables you to fully appreciate who you are. Be who you really should be. Don’t just be the best you can be, be even better!
