About Psychology based Hypnotherapy
Psychology based Hypnotherapy takes a scientific and evidence-based approach to hypnosis treatments. It combines the successful evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and mindfulness with the powerful properties of hypnosis. The conception being that using hypnosis can reinforce treatment expectancies and increase treatment effects (Lynn and Kirsch, 2006).
Hypnosis, alongside mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy have been shown to be effective in huge numbers of scientific studies for treating pain, anxiety, self-esteem, depression, addictions and other matters that lead to an improvement in well-being both psychological and physical.
