In 1995 a review of 18 different studies involving 577 participants showed hypnotherapy to be consistently effective for treating most types of psychological problems. In total there are over 11,000 studies showing positive benefit using hypnotherapy as an intervention. "CBT combined with Hypnotherapy has a synergistic effect and showed even greater benefit" (Kirsch et al. 1999:4). No intervention (treatment) can ever claim to be 100% effective. It would not be ethical for a therapist to say then can cure you.
However, hypnotherapy is an established practice and has a long history behind it with various famous hypnotherapists in the past such as James Esdaile and Dr James Braid who carried out thousands of painless operations including amputations in the 1800's, James Braid, Franz Anton Mesmer, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Dave Elman and in more recent times Milton H. Erickson. Always check out symptoms with your G.P first, and look for a therapist approved by National Professional UK organisations such as the CNHC or APHP
A Managing Director came to see me suffering from anxiety attacks, and sudden loss of confidence. New staff members seemed to be the cause of the initial attack. But underlying the acute symptoms it became apparent that this person was suffering from long term stress as a result of placing too much pressure upon themselves as a 'high performer' and leader'. After a few weeks there was a vast improvement in this person's health and whole new personal approach to the work situation.
