Text Box: What is Hypno-CBT?

Hypno Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Hypno-CBT) also known as Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) combines classical hypnotherapy with techniques and concepts from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
There is overwhelming evidence for the use of CBH approaches. Smith and Glass carried out one of the largest and most influential studies ever conducted on comparative psychotherapy outcomes. From meta-analysis of 475 controlled studies, employing tens of thousands of participants, they pooled data comparing different modes of psychotherapy in a seminal analysis that initiated the modern era of in psychotherapy efficacy research. Measurement of the ‘effect size’ of different modalities of psychotherapy showed that only four categories performed better than the average (the mean for all therapies). Specifically, “Cognitive, cognitive-behavioural therapies, hypnotherapy and systematic desensitisation appeared most effective” (Smith et all. 1980: 124).
Hypnotherapy more than doubled the ‘effect size’ of conventional psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Even more conclusive evidence was presented in research by Irving Kirsch which proved that 70% of CBT patients experienced more improvement when CBT was combined with hypnosis, i.e., from cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy or Hypno-CBT.
Text Box: The Essence and Advantages of Hypno-CBT 

Hypno Cognitive Behavioural Therapy taught (Hypno-CBT)  is an integrative and technically eclectic psychotherapy (hypno-psychotherapy). It combines classical hypnotherapy with techniques and concepts from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Hypno-CBT is evidence based. The theory and practice of Hypno-CBT are fundamentally derived from empirical evidence produced by mainstream psychological research on hypnotism and psychotherapy.
Hypno-CBT is brief and time limited. 
Hypno-CBT is structured , active-directive and action orientated. 
Hypno-CBT is both symptom oriented and goal directed (solution focused).
Hypno-CBT is rational and ‘psycho’-educational, it espouses a skills training approach to hypnotic responsiveness.
Cognitive restructuring, didactic re-education and Socratic questioning are important features of Hypno-CBT.
The therapeutic alliance is of central importance to Hypno-CBT. Hence, it emphasises the incorporation of key “humanistic” core qualities.
Hypno-CBT is collaborative. It values co-operation between therapist and patient.
Homework is a central feature of Hypno-CBT.
Hypno-CBT is holistic. It opposes philosophically reductionist models of psychological functioning and psychopathology.
Hypno-CBT values quantitative and qualitative measurement of outcomes.
Hypno-CBT employs session agendas and planned treatment interventions.
Garry Coles of Release Hypnotherapy is trained and qualified in the practice of Hypno-CBT approaches.
