As you consider the different aspects of my site, probably, your first question may be "What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy"
(To view an explanatory video go to "Cognitive Hypnotherapy"at the top of the page and click on "video explanation")

When I am approached by someone interested in Cognitive Hypnotherapy this is the question that I have to answer most often. And it’s not surprising; the term clinical hypnotherapy is used by many hypnotherapists who operate from many different organising beliefs.  It is my aim to provide accurate information that will enable prospective clients to have an idea of the basic idea of the components that constitute Cognitive Hypnotherapy and, in so doing, allow them to ask relevant questions that may guide them towards the answers to those questions. I want people to be able to recognise what Cognitive Hypnotherapy can offer that may be applicable to the concerns that have caused them to seek a solution to the problem that concerns them. Briefly, Cognitive Hypnotherapy borrows many of its principles from Cognitive theory, neuroscience and evolutionary psychology and uses a very different approach with regard to the nature of hypnosis and trance than the traditional approaches that commonly fall within the labels of clinical hypnotherapy or clinical hypnosis. In conclusion mai I suggest that there is significant evidence to indicate the effectiveness of utilising "trance" in therapy. The biggest ever meta analysis of therapeutic approaches indicated cognitive approaches to be the most effective, followed closely by hypnotherapy. Would you consider that a fusing of these two approaches could lead to even more powerful means of assisting individuals to deal with whatever problematic situations are affecting their lives?.

Project You


Project YouWhat is "Project You" Coaching?

We get stuck sometimes, don't we?

Whether it's in our relationships, in business or in life itself, most of us at some point come to a grinding halt. Why is a big question, and certainly a lot of factors can come into it, but I believe that a big one is that we don't know enough about ourselves. We're ignorant of the unconscious factors that guide our life down blind alleys, or seem to block the direction we think we want to go. Many of us live with a feeling that we're not living the life we could; or that the choices we've made are wrong, but we can't find a way out of the consequences of them. If that fits your situation then Project You may be for you.
