Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we all have experienced at many times in our life, just as we awake from sleep or are about to fall asleep. You may have experienced a trance like state when driving and you arrive somewhere without really noticing how you got there, or have you ever been listening to someone or something and realise that you have ‘switched off’ and then come back to full awareness, that is the state of trance that hypnosis induces. It is a state of total mental and physical relaxation with a heightened awareness and you will always be in control.

Hypnotherapy is a very personal experience and choosing the right therapist is important if you are to succeed in your goals. At Cheshunt Counselling we offer a free telephone assessment so that you can feel at ease with our therapist and know that this is the right choice for you. Everything discussed is private and confidential.

Our hypnotherapist uses a combination of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Counselling techniques to deliver the healing and create the new you that you are looking to achieve.

The British Medical Association has accepted hypnotherapy as a serious and useful treatment for over 50 years.

In 1955 the BMA commissioned a two year study into hypnosis and it’s final report was published in the Britsh Medical Journal (BMJ). It stated that: “For the past hundred years there has been an abundance of evidence that psychological and physiological changes could be produced by hypnotism which were worth study on their own account, and also that such changes might be of great service in the treatment of patients.” (British Medical Journal, cited) and hypnosis was then approved in official BMA policy.
