Siobhan Gilmore Hypnotherapy – Hypnosis & CBT Cork – East Cork Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy

Are you based in Cork and considering hypnosis or hypnotherapy to bring about positive change in your life? If you are reading this then you already have made an important step on your journey to better health. My name is Siobhan Gilmore and I am a cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist based in East Cork. I offer a range of hypnosis and hypnotherapy services at my clinic in Midleton, East Cork. I also work with clients online via Zoom. Online hypnotherapy is just as effective as it is in person but it allows you to experience hypnosis from the comfort of your own home.

As a cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist, my approach combines hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques. I help my clients to break bad habits (e.g. stop smoking, nail-biting, eating habits etc.), increase self-confidence, reduce stress, lose weight, beat insomnia and overcome anxiety or phobias. I am trained in Hypno-CBT®, which is an evidence-based integration of hypnosis and CBT techniques. Hypnosis and CBT are proven effective approaches in their own right, but research has shown that when combined they can be even more effective with more long-term results (Kirsch et al, 1995; Ramondo et al, 2021). 

My approach is focused on helping you uncover what is holding you back and what unhelpful thoughts, behaviours or emotions are maintaining your particular issue. These can be hard to identify on your own, as over the years they will have become automatic. We will focus on the thoughts, feelings and behaviours which are responsible for maintaining your problem, and through various techniques from hypnosis, CBT and mindfulness we will establish more positive alternatives. Throughout this process we will work together to build up your self-belief and confidence in your ability to achieve your goal. Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy is a very brief form of therapy, usually requiring only a few sessions or just one session for habits (e.g. smoking, nail biting, eating habits etc.). To make the most impact and to get results as quickly as possible, we will collaboratively decide on some helpful things to try in between sessions (e.g. listen to a recording or try something new). 

Not all hypnotherapy is the same. If you are considering hypnotherapy, then I would recommend that you chose a hypnotherapist trained in CBT techniques to really maximise the benefit from each session. While hypnosis on its own can be very powerful, it often doesn’t address many of the underlying issues, which is where CBT come in. 

I have a BSc in Psychology and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, which is approved by the British Psychological Society, the National Council for Hypnotherapy, the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Register for Evidence-Based Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. I am a registered member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and am bound by their comprehensive Code of Ethics.
