Hypnotherapy and cognitive therapy in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire


Cognitive Processing and Integration Therapy:  

Cognitive Processing and Integration therapy is for more deep seated emotional problems. Unprocessed or unhelpfully processed past experiences or conflicts can lead to symptom formation. CPI can help you to process and integrate these unresolved experiences. CPI can help you to make sense and put these experiences into context so they are processed in a helpful way. CPI can help you to recover and resolve your symptoms and move on in your life.

Many therapeutic interventions aim to modify or reduce unwanted symptoms and behaviours.  The fundamental difference with C.P.I. is that it treats the root cause of the problem. Once the cause of the problem is resolved then the unwanted symptoms and behaviours will be significantly reduced or permanently disappear.


Symptoms treated:

Stop Smoking

Weight Loss

Sexual Problems

Phobias and Fears

Panic Attacks and Anxiety

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state with a sense of deep relaxation. When someone is in hypnosis they are not asleep, and their senses are highly tuned with a greater depth of awareness.  It can be experienced differently by the same person and by different people, so there is no particular ‘state’ if you like. It can also be described as a state of focused attention. So hypnosis is a very pleasant feeling that combines relaxation with a focus of attention or concentration. Anyone who wants to be hypnotised can be hypnotised. 

It is a myth that some people cannot be hypnotised. The only exception is if someone is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  In fact we all experience the state of hypnosis every day. It is very similar to when you are daydreaming or about to fall asleep.  It is that lovely blurry state just before you fall asleep or as you are waking up first thing in the morning. Other examples of natural hypnosis are:  if you are engrossed in reading a book, or watching a film or painting or anything that absorbs your concentration.  Anything that really absorbs you, that takes (or grabs) your concentration and allows you to lose yourself in it.  So hypnosis is a naturally occurring psychological process that we all experience daily.

Clinical hypnotherapy or Suggestion hypnotherapy:

Clinical hypnotherapy only takes one or two sessions and it is ideal and very effective for the more simple problems and symptoms. It is very effective for problems such as: stopping smoking, losing weight, confidence boosting, driving test nerves, exam nerves or dentist nerves. Clinical hypnotherapy is not recommended for the more deep seated problems.  As hypnosis induces a heightened sense of awareness, the relaxed state of mind is more susceptible to accept beneficial positive suggestions.  


How clinical hypnotherapy can help:

The unconscious mind stores all your emotions and behaviours. Hypnotherapy can treat many psychological problems by accessing the unconscious mind. When you are in a relaxed state of hypnosis, carefully worded positive suggestions are given.  As you are in a relaxed state of hypnosis, these suggestions will bypass the intellect and this will enable them to take root in the subconscious part of the mind. When an idea or suggestion takes root in the subconscious - the subconscious mind will express or discharge the idea or suggestion.


Clinical hypnotherapy can be very effective for changing maladaptive behaviours and treating anxieties.  Many personal improvements and lifestyle changes can be achieved by using clinical hypnotherapy. Clinical hypnotherapy is suitable for lifestyle changes that have a low level of stress or anxiety and do not have any severe underlying emotional problems.
