Science is finally catching up with many of us already know to be true, Hypnosis really does work! Irving Kirsh, lecturer at Harvard Medical School, He states that research has found, people had more success losing weight and managed to keep it off when using hypnosis. Using hypnosis with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) was more successful than using CBT on its own. This is an interesting finding and one which we understand as hypnotherapists. Hypnosis is a powerful tool when accessing the part of the mind that is responsible for habits, creating beliefs and for the emotions. Therefore it stands to reason that CBT is much more effectively carried out when that part of the brain is engaged. The conscious mind can understand on a rational level what the problem is and what needs to be done. However, it is ill-equipped to bring about the desired changes. Its like searching for the solution in the wrong place. CBT in the Hypnotic state gets to the part of the brain responsible for forming and keeping the maladaptive habits and beliefs going and therefore much better chance of success. This applies to any area where change and new ways of feeling are desired. Call today for a free consultation to see how Hypnosis can help you today.
