Cognitive Hypnotherapy

Cognitive Hypnotherapy in London, Internationally and via Skype

I see clients for Coaching and Cognitive Hypnotherapy in London, at retreats and beautiful locations around the world and via skype. In this page I talk specifically about Cognitive Hypnotherapy but do check out the rest of this site for more on coaching with me.


So What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy?

All of us get assume habits, beliefs and behaviours which we come to realise are reducing the quality of our lives and yet somehow feel unable to change. Cognitive Hypnotherapist think of the unconscious as an area of the mind, separate from the conscious mind, which is capable of making decisions and producing its own behaviour. It is where problem patterns are stored and maintained. All of our problems have arisen because this part of our mind seeks to protect us by keeping us away from situations that have brought about a difficult or unpleasant experience in the past. When a similar situation occurs, we are emotionally hijacked by our unconscious mind, resulting in behaviour we often can’t control or explain.

‘Being completely new to hypnotherapy, I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect and was at first a little apprehensive. I was put at ease straight away and the sessions helped me make sense of difficult life experiences allowing me to recall memories without a strong emotional connection. I hadn’t realised how entwined all these past experiences had been on my wellbeing and talking them through with Kirsty helped me find an inner strength to move on with my life and not let my past dictate who I am now.’ BG, London

Hypnotherapy in London

Cognitive Hypnotherapy uses ideas from the schools of Hypnotherapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Evolutionary Psychology and Positive Psychology to form a powerful way of changing unwanted behaviours or ways of thinking. We believe that just as each client is truly unique, the way we individually experience our problems are unique – therefore there is no one approach fits all. Unlike many hypnotherapists there are no set scripts, I tailor each session completely to you, allowing the most effective change to take place in the shortest time possible. Together we create a therapeutic partnership to best work together to achieve the changes you want for your life.

If you have a minute do watch this great animation which explains more about Cognitive Hypnotherapy:

‘I can not recommend Kirsty highly enough. What a wonderful person she is – instantly putting you at ease and with an incredible ability to get straight to the heart of the ‘problem’.

I went to Kirsty to get over my inability to pick up the phone and talk to people about my new business – something that was crucial if it was to succeed. I realized that it was my fear of being judged and rejected that was stopping me. However, after an hour with Kirsty, and to my total amazement, I left the session and immediately made five phone calls!

I will certainly be using Kirsty again, should other issues arise in my life, and would urge you to do the same if something in life is holding you back from being the best you can be – life is too short not too! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Kirsty!’ P.H, London

Cognitive Hypnotherapy uses a relaxed, light trance state, just as you might experience when you are absorbed in a good book and miss your stop on the train, or when you’re just daydreaming. The hypnosis and the hypnotic state allows the unconscious the ability to accept solutions as permanent and ongoing.
