Counseling &

CBT, EFT, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness techniques


What Is Hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images.


It is sometimes used as part of a treatment plan for phobias and other anxiety disorders. It is also used for pain management, weight loss, OCD, smoking cessation, and a variety of other applications.


What happens during Hypnotherapy? During hypnosis, a trained hypnotist or hypnotherapist induces a state of intense concentration or focused attention. This is a guided process with verbal cues and repetition. The trance-like state you enter may appear similar to sleep in many ways, but you're fully aware of what's going on.


Although hypnosis and hypnotherapy are words that are used rather interchangeably, the two words are not the same. Hypnosis is more a state of mind while hypnotherapy is the name of the therapeutic version in which hypnosis is used.


What happens in a hypnotherapy session?  First, you'll usually have a talk with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree what methods your therapist will use. Then your  therapist will start the guided therapy.


Is counseling better than Hypnotherapy? Counseling provides a safe nurturing space in which one can freely explore their emotions, and hypnotherapy helps us to bypass the busyness of the conscious mind and get to the root of the issues, in a deeply relaxing way.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a treatment approach that helps you recognize negative or unhelpful thought and behavior patterns. CBT aims to help you identify and explore the ways your emotions and thoughts can affect your actions.

What happens during CBT sessions? The course of treatment usually lasts for between 5 and 20 sessions, with each session lasting 30 to 60 minutes. During the  sessions, you'll work with your therapist to break down your problems into their separate parts, such as your thoughts, physical feelings and actions. A typical CBT session may include: working through exercises with your therapist to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Agreeing some activities to work on in your own time. Going over what you did in previous sessions and discussing what progress you've made.

Mental health disorders that may improve with CBT include:

  • Depression.

  • Anxiety disorders.

  • Phobias.

  • PTSD.

  • Sleep disorders.

  • Eating disorders.

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Substance use disorders.
