What is Cognitive or Clinical Hypnotherapy?
Cognitive Hypnotherapy combines cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnosis with theories based on modern neuroscience. It uses the natural state of mind that we can all enter when absorbed in a book or film or daydreaming and is an extremely effective way of making positive change. Amazingly, 90% of our behaviour is driven by our sub conscious mind, rather than our conscious mind. Cognitive Hypnotherapists treat the individual based on extensive research that demonstrates how we can create issues in our lives by repeating patterns and filtering information to keep the problem being a problem. Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a brief, goal orientated form of therapy in which the therapist works in partnership with the client to create healthy and realistic alternatives to current problematic thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
The transformation we see in clients, who choose hypnotherapy to free themselves from all sorts of issues, is truly inspirational!

Hypnotherapy is widely regarded as the most effective way to stop smoking - and more effective than nicotine replacement.
The harm that tobacco smoking causes to the human body and to the bodies of children and others inhaling someone elses smoke is undisputed. New studies also indicate that vaping may cause unique health problems as dangerous as smoking.
Asana has several hypnotherapists who help clients break their smoking habit very successfully - often in just one session! Therapists may have slightly different approaches or even employ additional techniques to suit particular clients.
