Tailor-Made to You

We don't use standardised scripts, each intervention is bespoke to your needs, we agree a tailor-made treatment plan for you in the first session. The great thing about Cognitive Hypnotherapy is its flexibility, that's why it's so effective in treating a wide range of issues in a broad range of people.The skill comes from the therapist knowing which technique to use at what time.
