The value of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy can have a powerful impact on our minds, enabling behavioural differences. Through hypnosis; an inner state of focused attention, we can remove resistance and create change on a deep, formative level, change that lasts.

The NCH is the UK’s leading not-for-profit Hypnotherapy Professional Association. All our practising members are fully insured and trained to the highest standards, so you can choose a hypnotherapist with confidence. All NCH training schools offer the HPD (NCH), an externally qualified diploma, so when you choose to train with an NCH accredited school you will be assured that your training will be robust and ethical, and will give you the foundations to be a highly skilled professional Hypnotherapist.

August Research Snippet: Hypnosis, Pain, Expectation & Placebo

This snippet discusses a recent experimental study which attempted to quantify (as a percentage) the extent to which expectation contributed to the pain-reducing effects of hypnosis, imagination, and a placebo medication. Strong evidence was derived from statistical analysis suggesting that the effect of hypnotism is “partially-mediated” by expectation, albeit to a lesser degree than the placebo effect.
