'A meta-analysis was performed on 18 studies in which a cognitive-behavioural therapy was compared with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. The results indicated that the addition of hypnosis substantially enhanced treatment outcome, so that the average client receiving cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy showed greater improvement than at least 70% of clients receiving non-hypnotic treatment. These results were particularly striking because of the few procedural differences between the hypnotic and non-hypnotic treatments'.
We also deliver treatment plans if you need more than one session. Hypnotherapy works best when you have the drive, determination and belief to succeed.

The Science Behind Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis is generally regarded as an altered state of consciousness, a broad category that includes meditative states, the “flow” state, psychedelic drug-induced states, and psychosis. But since consciousness isn’t understood, alterations to it aren’t very well understood either.
More specifically, hypnosis is a state of extreme “suggestibility,” a phenomenon that includes the placebo effect, advertising, and religious cults, but may also include any context-specific behaviour. If a stranger at a train station asks you to take off your clothes, you would call the police. But if a stranger wearing a white coat at a hospital makes the same request, you would comply naturally.
Have you been hypnotised?
The hypnotic induction procedure generally involves three components: direction of attention, unusual use of language, and reaffirming. The direction of attention determines what will or will not enter perceptual awareness. The unusual use of language can divide consciousness, so that suggestions are made indirectly while reasoning and scepticism is distracted. Reaffirming is used to reinstate all that has been learned, and to create a sense of well-being which then helps to get the brain to accept its new programme.
During the induction stages of hypnosis, the body becomes more and more relaxed and the brain enters changing levels of brain wave pattern. There are five brainwave frequencies, however there are four main different brainwave patterns when looking at hypnosis. These are Beta wave pattern, Alpha wave pattern, Theta wave pattern and Delta wave pattern as measured by an EEG (Electroencephalograph).
Brain wave patterns
In the fully engaged and focused state, the brain will show a Beta wave pattern which is from 15 to 40 cycles per second.
In a restful state, the brain will show an Alpha wave pattern which is from 9 to 14 cycles per second.
In a deeper state of hypnosis, similar to dreaming and some meditative states, the brain shows a Theta wave pattern which is from 4 to 8 cycles per second.
And in the deepest state of hypnosis, the brain shows a Delta wave pattern which is from 1 to 4 cycles per second and it is associated with deep dreamless sleep. The deeper the sleep, the higher the amount of delta waves.
