Authoritative Research

The Department of Health states that “psychological therapy should be routinely considered as an option … [for] mental health problems [and for] patients who are adjusting to life events, illnesses, disability or losses”
{Evidence Based Practice Guideline – published DoH Feb 2001}

NHS: National Institute for Health Research, [Perry, Banon, Ianni, 1999]. “Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for personality disorders, and may be associated with up to a seven-fold faster rate of recovery in comparison with the natural history of disorders.”

A British Medical Journal medical research clinical review on hypnotherapy concluded:
•"There is good evidence from randomized controlled trials that hypnosis … can reduce anxiety, particularly ... [in] ... stressful situations."
•"Effective for panic disorders and insomnia.”
•"Hypnosis enhances the effects of … therapy for conditions such as phobia, obesity, and anxiety."
•"Randomized controlled trials support the use of various relaxation techniques for treating both acute and chronic pain”
•"Randomized trials have shown hypnosis to be of value in asthma and in irritable bowel syndrome."
•"There is strong evidence from randomized trials of the effectiveness of hypnosis and relaxation for cancer related anxiety, pain, nausea, and vomiting, particularly in children." (Vickers & Zollman, "Clinical Review: Hypnosis & Relaxation Therapies", British Medical Journal, 1999
