About Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy

At Recovery Hypnotherapy, Nina Davies will encourage you to learn how hypnosis can help you in your everyday life and will teach you skills that can be used independently in the future. She will help you to identify how balance rest and activity to maintain physical and emotional health. She will share problem solving skills that will build resilience into your recovery.

Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy helps to identify the thoughts and behaviours that are making life more challenging. The cognitive-behavioural approach to hypnotherapy is evidence based, which means it is supported by psychological research on hypnosis and suggestion. There is a strong body of evidence that suggests that CBH can help manage depression and anxiety disorders, phobias and smoking. Hypnotherapy also contributes to pain management and the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Research has shown that there is no identifiable 'trance state' and that the more active the role taken by the client in 'imagining', the better the treatment outcomes.

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy uses a combination of techniques including relaxation, suggestion, imagery, mindfulness and problem solving. At Recovery Hypnotherapy, Nina Davies uses these techniques to treat the following conditions as a part of a recovery program:
muscular tension,
pain (as part of a pain management plan),
anxiety (including social anxiety),
panic attacks,
phobias (including fear of needles, flying and driving),
low self confidence
smoking and other addictions.
