About Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy


 Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy involves the utilization of trance (slower brain wave states) for psychologically therapeutic applications. A Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapist is trained and skilled in the adjunct use of clinical hypnosis in evidence-based, trauma-informed psychotherapy.  The Hypnotherapy technique uses  professional competency in the safe and ethical use of hypnotherapy in the psychotherapeutic setting, specifically in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and mindfulness based approaches, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).


There is much research behind clinical hypnotherapy as an effective adjunct psychotherapy intervention, and it has been used in an integrative fashion to successfully treat


 •PTSD; •phobias;



 •chronic pain and migraines;

 •habits such as teeth grinding (bruxism);

 and •body focused repetitive behaviours
