logo CPHTDo you ever struggle with unwanted and intrusive negative thoughts like OCD? Do you sometimes find yourself checking the front door is locked or ensuring the kettle is definitely switched off for the umpteenth time?

Do you find obsessive thinking is getting in the way of leading a positive life?

If the answer is “yes” then you may find Solution Focused Hypnotherapy may help to ease your mind away from thinking endless negative thoughts which can lead to, in extreme cases, people struggling to leave their own home.

“We teach how to deal with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD in month 5 of our 10 month accredited diploma course,” explains David Mclean, the senior lecturer and course leader at Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) here in Edinburgh.

“As our daily lives are increasingly stressful in the modern world so, sometimes, our brains struggle to adapt to the challenges we face.”

“As such, it tries to protect us by re-checking things again and again, or introducing obsessive thinking into our lives. Negative thoughts then end up in something we term as a “stress bucket.”

“Learning how to deliver helps you to understand how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy aims to empty the stress bucket so allowing the client to have a more relaxed and confident outlook to their life which, in turn, helps them to stop worrying and focus on the positive aspects of life as a whole.”

The number of sessions to help people who have feelings for strong negative compulsions can vary and, obviously, as with any medical issue then it is important to remember that your GP is also there to help with OCD.

If you are interested in learning how you can become a hypnotherapist to help people with many issues including OCD then please contact us here info@cphtedinburgh.co.uk or call 0131 235 2303.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help improve sleep, aid in weight management, reduce phobias and fears and help people to stop smoking.

  1. Modern day life is full of pressure and whilst we may be able to “cope” the vast majority of the time with the stress this creates, there can be times when it all gets a little too much
