Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a form of talking therapy which helps you to identify unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving and replacing them with more helpful ones. In Hypnotherapy, you use your imagination to picture you achieving your goals, allowing you to change the way you think, feel and behave.
Hypnotherapy is an increasingly popular and continually successful approach because of its high success rates, the durability of its results, the speed at which positive change can be brought about and then built upon and pleasant and relaxing nature of the process itself.
Research has also shown that integrating CBT with hypnotherapy is more effective than doing CBT alone (Kirsch et al, 1995). Treatment can also be much quicker with an average of 6-8 sessions compared with up to 20 sessions of CBT alone.
