CBH aims to get to the bottom of your issues by identifying the unhealthy negative beliefs you might hold about yourself in any specific situation or in life in general.
It is these beliefs, which consciously you may be unaware of, that lead you to act, think, and feel in a particular way.
The aim of Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy is to help you move from a negative, unhealthy, belief and emotion to a flexible and more realistic belief and emotion. It does not necessarily mean that you will be instantly and unrecognisably transformed, however by encouraging flexible and more rational thinking you will be better able to deal with issues more constructively, logically and therefore healthily.
The type of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy I use is based on REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy), which was designed by an American clinical psychologist Dr. Albert Ellis. According to Ellis the suffering does not come directly from the problems that upset us but from the irrational and unhelpful perceptions we have about them. That is why it is essential to identify your unhealthy and helathy negative beliefs first of all so that you are able to identify any positives as well as the negatives. Once your belief changes from a rigid to a more flexible one, then we can reinforce such a healthy shift via hypnosis.
