Does the NHS Recognise Hypnotherapy

If you have been considering hypnosis or exploring how hypnosis may be helpful to you for a particular medical condition. It is worth talking to your GP or healthcare provider.

Hypnotherapy could be recommended as part of a treatment plan for certain conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, stress and other conditions. However, it should be remembered that hypnotherapy is not usually available on the NHS and therefore you should talk to your healthcare provider. In addition, in certain circumstances hypnosis may not be suitable for you. Certain mental disorders such as severe psychosis or certain types of personality disorder would not warrant the use of hypnosis.

It is important, should you decide to explore hypnosis, that you go to a fully trained therapist. One that is registered with the GHSC (General Hypnotherapy Standards Council). The GHSC and GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register), are the UK's most prominent organisations and provide practitioner credibility.

At Hypnocares a free (no obligation) telephone consultation is always provided and further information is requested prior to working with you, if you wish to proceed. As part of this we do request medical detail from you, including any medications currently being taken. It is important that you feel comfortable with the hypnotherapist, as you will be working together.

If it is felt that hypnosis is not suitable for you, Hypnocares also offers EFT (emotional freedom Technique), often referred to as "tapping" or "acupuncture without needles".

Please feel free to contact Sharon Mason an advanced level trained hypnotherapist and EFT practitioner to organise your free no obligation consultation Tel. 07538 470420 and to discuss how hypnotherapy or EFT could help you.
