Learn about CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy)

  CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) is recommended by Doctors and Psychiatrists and has been found to be helpful in alleviating anxiety, depression, panic, agoraphobia and other phobias, social phobia, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. Used in conjunction with hypnotherapy it provides clients with the means to quickly and easily change their negative thought patterns to more positive and supportive patterns.

  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help you to make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect you.

  • A Situation - a problem, event or difficult situation

  • From this can follow:

  • Thoughts

  • Emotions

  • Physical feelings

  • Actions

  • Each of these areas can affect the others. How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. It can also alter what you do about it. There are helpful and unhelpful ways of reacting to most situations, depending on how you think about them.

    Learn about EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

      EFT (emotional freedom technique) is the Ambassador of the energy psychologies, which are also known as energy therapies or meridian therapies. Developed in the 1990's by Gary Craig, a Stanford Engineer, EFT has quickly become a much valued tool in many therapist's repertoire of helpful techniques, as well as a stand alone therapy. Other energy therapies include TAT, BSFF, EmoTrance and ECT, and you can read about these on the UK Meridian Therapies Association website.

      EFT is based on the premise that the cause of negative emotion is a disruption of our electrical energy system. By focusing on a particular emotional problem or traumatic memory, and then stimulating the ends of the major energy meridians which run throughout the body (mapped by traditional chinese medicine thousands of years ago), the disruptions can be smoothed and the proper flow of electrical energy around the body restored. The emotional charge on the negative thoughts or memories is then dissipated.

      Tapping on the end of the meridians has a similar effect as stimulating them with acupuncture needles, in fact EFT is often referred to as acupressure or acupuncture without needles.

      As it is so very simple and easy to learn, many people around the world have been successful helping themselves with simpler problems through the use of EFT, without the need for a trained therapist. However, more complex or long standing problems can be more thoroughly cleared up with the aid of an EFT practitioner, who can guide the client through all the different aspects of a problem.

    Learn about NLP (neurolinguistic programming)

      NLP (neurolinguistic programming) is used extensively is all forms of therapy. It is based on the study of excellence and high performance in individuals who excel in their fields. By emulating or modelling their behaviour, we can access the same type of blueprint for success. NLP principles can helpful for modifying all types of behaviours including phobias, habits, goal setting and much more. For more information about neuro-linguistic programming please click here and also see our articles and resources page. Modern Psychology Magazine recently declared "NLP may be the most powerful vehicle for change in existence".

    What is NLP?
    The term NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming and was coined in the early seventies by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. They began their work by studying: Fritz Perls, psychotherapist and originator of the Gestalt school of therapy, Virginia Satir, well-known family therapist and Milton Erickson, a worldfamous hypnotherapist. Their intention was to model outstanding therapists (i.e. identify patterns) in order that others could use these patterns to generate similar results. You may say that NLP is about identifying excellence, and then devising means for others to use those patterns to achieve similar results.

    NLP also draws on earlier work, such as Ivan Pavlov’s conditioned reflexes
    (1904). In NLP this is called anchoring. You could say that NLP takes theoretical
    results developed by others and makes them available to you and me so that we
    can improve our lives and well-being.
    NLP had its origins in therapy and is now applied in all areas of human
    endeavour - education, health, sports, business, and the list goes on. Let us look
    at the terms Neuro Linguistic Programming.
    Neuro refers to your brain and your neurology. It is about how you take in
    information. For example, you can use your eyes to see something. Other ways
    to experience an event include: hear, kinesthetic (tactile touch or emotional
    feeling), gustatory (taste) and olfactory (smell).
    Linguistic refers to the language -- pictures, sounds, feelings (kinesthetic),
    tastes, smells and words -- that you use to remember a particular experience (or
    NLP & EFT A Powerful Combination
    to forecast a future experience). For example, did you have breakfast this
    morning? When you remember having breakfast, can you see a picture in your
    mind, can you hear sounds (maybe a radio was on or someone said something
    to you), what about tastes and smells, how were you feeling - happy, tired,
    For a future experience, do you see yourself being successful? Or failing? The
    pictures, sounds, feelings, tastes, smells and words that you use to describe
    future experiences have a bearing on what actually happens! You do create your
    own reality!
    Programming refers to your habits, patterns, programs, strategies, etc. If it is a
    workday, do you follow a particular pattern, as you get ready for work? Maybe
    you like to lay in bed an extra 5 minutes after the alarm goes off. Do you shower
    right away or have breakfast first? If you take time to look at what you do, I am
    sure that you will see a pattern that you follow in getting ready for work. If for
    some reason you do not follow that pattern, do you find yourself feeling that
    something is missing?
    You have patterns, habits, strategies, programs for everything you do. Some of
    these patterns serve you, others do not - resulting in unwanted outcomes. You
    may be fully aware of some of your patterns. You may become aware of other
    patterns only when someone else brings them to your attention. And you may
    choose to quickly forget about these patterns because you do not want to
    address that part of your life. And there are still other patterns that you are not
    aware of at all; yet they continue to influence how you look after yourself,
    communicate with others, etc.
    If the patterns serve you - generate positive results in your life - great! If you find
    that some patterns do not serve you, would it be useful to discover which
    patterns they are and to change them?
    Question: Who put your patterns, habits, strategies, programs in place? You did!
    So who can change them? You can! First, you must be aware that you run these
    patterns. This is one of the biggest benefits of NLP - becoming aware of the
    patterns, habits, strategies, programs you have been running unconsciously and
    then use NLP techniques to change them so that you achieve the outcomes that
    you desire.
