Siobhan Gilmore Hypnotherapy – Cork & Online
Firstly, thanks for visiting my site. I’m Siobhan Gilmore, a cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist based in Midleton, East Cork. I am the only hypnotherapist in Cork, specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (Hypno-CBT®) and one of a few in Ireland.
Are you considering hypnotherapy to make positive changes in your life? If you are, then simply reading this is an important step in the right direction. I offer a range of hypnosis and hypnotherapy services at my Cork clinic. In addition, I also work with clients online. Not only does this allow you to experience hypnosis from the comfort of your own home, but it is also equally as effective.
What is Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy?
As a cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist, my approach involves using a variety of techniques to help bring about change. As part of this, I combine hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques. This work sees me helping clients to break bad habits such as smoking, nail-biting and unhealthy eating etc. In addition, I work with clients to help them overcome anxiety, phobias, confidence issues, stress and sleep problems. It’s important to know that hypnosis and CBT are both effective approaches in their own right. However, research has shown that combined they can be even more effective.
If we were to work together then I will help you to uncover what is holding you back. Therefore, we will focus on the thoughts, feelings and behaviours maintaining your problem. It’s this type of solution focused approach at the beginning of therapy that is central to the CBT model. These maintaining factors can be hard to identify on your own. That’s beacuse they will have become automatic over time. Through various techniques from hypnosis, CBT and mindfulness we will establish alternatives and solutions. Also, we will work together to build up your self-belief and confidence. When we look at your problems in the way just described, the solutions become clear. From there then, we can develop a treatment plan to help you overcome whatever it is that is holding you back.
Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy is a brief form of therapy, usually involving only a few sessions. For example, one session for habit breaking and between 3-6 for other issues such as anxiety. In order to help get results as quickly as possible, there will be work to do in between sessions. It usually involves listening to a recording but can include other activities such as journaling etc.
The only place for Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy in Cork!
It’s important to highlight that not all hypnotherapy is the same. That is why I would recommend you chose a hypnotherapist trained in CBT techniques to get the most from hypnosis. Hypnosis can be very powerful, but it often doesn’t address many of the underlying issues. So that’s where CBT come in.
I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology, and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy from the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy. This means I have a combination of skills and training that is based on scientific research. Also, I am a registered member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). This means that I am bound by their comprehensive Code of Ethics.
