This is by definition ‘therapy for the mind’, and refers to the use of a variety of interventions which can enable the individual to live more easily, comfortably or confidently in their chosen environment.
Psychotherapy can help in coming to terms with who we are and where we have come from, and in changing a negative world view into a more positive and empowering one.

At Jean Chesworth Hypno-psychotherapy, an individual programme will be followed whereby approaches will be selected from various schools of psychotherapy in order to meet individual needs and requirements. Techniques may be selected from Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural and Ego State therapies, sessions supported by the ‘core conditions’ of Rogers, and in Hypno-psychotherapy, Ericksonian and NLP techniques, alongside the dynamic and liberating Ego State Therapy.

The only requirement for moving forward ‘psychologically’ is that you are ready for positive change, and that you can commit to taking responsibility for your own life and happiness. Psychotherapy can support you as you embark on a journey of discovery that can be at once fascinating and challenging, working alongside the therapist on the road to ‘peace of mind’.
When psychotherapy is combined with hypnosis, change can occur more quickly and insight can be gained more clearly. It is important, however, to ensure that your therapist is suitably qualified and experienced to deal with deep-rooted emotional issues. One way to ensure that your therapist has been properly trained is to check that they are a member of the National Register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists – NRHP. Choosing an NRHP Practitioner is your assurance of:-

  • Strict regulation of practice
  • Meaningful qualifications
  • Client confidentiality
  • Professional relationships
  • Practitioner competence
  • Post-qualification supervision
  • Ongoing professional development
  • Full professional indemnity insurance

Jean Chesworth is a full member of NRHP, and is in the NHS Directory of Alternative and Complementary Practitioners.
