Assured Effects Hypnotherapy - Accreditation

The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) was established with government support to regulate complementary therapies including hypnotherapy.  

Their key purpose is to protect the public. The Department of Health has recommended that, where CNHC registers the complementary therapists in question, you consult with someone who is CNHC registered.

One drink too many too often?   

Assured Effects Hypnotherapy - Alcohol

It is estimated that 2.6 million children in the UK are living with parents who are drinking hazardously and 705,000 living with dependent drinkers.

There are an estimated 1.6 million people dependent on alcohol in England.

Many individuals suffer from alcohol dependence and find it hard to acknowledge their problem, and the result is that the addiction remains undetected for many years. But many who accept their problem have controlled their addiction and rebuild their lives with the right help and support.  Often, medication alone is not enough to combat alcohol dependence. Hypnotherapy is very quick treatment and usually only requires just 3 or 4 sessions

Problems losing weight? - Sleep on it!

The BBC reported recently that scientists in the US have found that in order to combat obesity we should manage our sleep and stress levels. The study of 472 obese people over a six month period showed people were less likely to lose weight if they got too little or too much sleep.

And the advice by a UK sleep expert is people need to eat less, move more and sleep well to have a healthier life.

Insomnia - Assured Effects HypnotherapyThe size of the problem is that around 25% of adults in the UK are clinically obese (having a Body Mass Index greater than 30).

Andy Cox, clinical hypnotherapist a in Poole, Bournemouth, Dorset said “The connection between sleep, stress and weight loss is very well known. If we suffer from stress our sleep naturally suffers. When we are tired we boost our energy by snacking and over-eating. We also use treats such as chocolate and cake to combat stress and anxiety in a hope that they will make us feel better. And of course then when we put on weight we lower our self esteem, increase our stress and then our sleep suffers more. Also being overweight can have a detrimental effect on our sleeping patterns so it is a vicious circle”

“The good news is that hypnotherapy is proven to be very effective in stress reduction, weight loss and combating insomnia. This all helps to make us feel a whole lot better about ourselves!”

Testimonials -Hi Andy

Hypnotherapy in Poole - Testimonial 2Thought you might like a little feedback after my gastric band 'op' yesterday.  I ate very little at the party last night and didn't feel any worse for it and had a breakfast of egg and mushrooms this morning.  The interesting bit was I gave myself a small prawn cocktail and crackers at lunch which was lovely until I ate a handful of nuts afterwards. Now I feel overly full and a little sick so I won't be doing that again!



What is the hypnotic state?

The hypnotic state is a very natural state of physical relaxation with heightened mental awareness.

We go into different states of consciousness all day long, and often enter a hypnotic trance state when wide awake, doing something boring and “switching off” or watching TV and suddenly the programme has ended. We all can regularly go into “hypnosis”

How does hypnotherapy work?

Our waking patterns of behaviour are based on associations we have made from our thoughts to our emotions. Certain thoughts trigger certain emotions, and likewise, certain emotions can trigger certain thoughts.

Within hypnosis, you learn to tune into your feelings and link your thoughts with your feelings, and then learn to be more perceptive in your conscious waking state when a certain feeling or thought arises. In this manner, merely by recognizing the connection of the thought and emotion, you are stopping the automatic, or trigger reaction. This is essential when dealing with behavioural changes.
