Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy

​Modern research on hypnotherapy is increasingly focused upon the integration of hypnotherapy and CBT since the publication in a mainstream peer-reviewed psychology journal of an influential meta-analysis carried out in 1995 by Irvine Kirsch ​research has shown that this approach is up to 80% more successful. Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy (CBH) is a core modality of modern hypnotherapy and hypno-psychotherapy.    It combines traditional techniques cognitive-behavioural theories of hypnosis, and certain elements of CBT.  Cognitive and behavioural techniques have always been implicit in hypnotherapy since the original writings of Braid and Bernheim in the Victorian era.  However, modern cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy became more explicitly formulated.


Cognitive Hypnotherapy uses the most modern knowledge of how the mind works. A therapy widely regarded as one of the most effective forms of therapy. The self-awareness that CBT offers renders it a highly successful way to quickly eliminate negative thoughts, emotions and limiting beliefs by changing the way you think and behave.


Integration of social, cognitive and behavioural psychology with traditional hypnosis. It is based upon various established models of theory and practice which pre-date the development of modern cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). Nevertheless, HCBT embraces the principle of evidence-based “technical eclecticism” (Lazarus) which encourages clinicians to seek proven methods from different modalities of psychological therapy and attempt to incorporate them within a consistent theoretical model.
