You have been feeling a little stressed and anxious lately and you know that you should speak to a hypnotherapist before things get worse. The problem is that there are so many of them in Cambridge that choosing between them can add to your stress. You definitely want to choose the best, one who is known for getting results. Here are the factors that you should take into account when choosing a hypnotherapist:
• The first thing that you want to check is whether they are qualified. Hypnosis is a field that sometimes attracts hacks. Fortunately, there are organizations that take care of that sort of thing. Check whether the hypnotherapist you are considering is registered with the General Hypnotherapist Register and the National Council for Hypnotherapy. You should also check which university they attended – there are some who qualify in dodgy schools. That said, a long list of letters after a name doesn’t necessarily mean that they are good at what they do.
• The second thing you should look into is how well you get along with them. Hypnotherapy requires you to talk about your problems openly. If you don’t feel comfortable with the hypnotherapist that you choose you may end up withholding information that could be of help. It is worthwhile to mention that sometimes, people get so comfortable with their therapists that they become attracted to them. If you start to get feelings for your therapist it will compromise your treatment; find a different hypnotherapist of this happens.
• Find out of the hypnotherapist you have in mind has experience treating your conditions. There are some who specialize – you could find they are experts at helping people with certain disorders. You want to find one who has experience in treating stress and anxiety.
• Any good Cambridge hypnotherapist will put up a professional looking website that has information about the different conditions that they treat. In addition to that, they provide information and advice on how people can maintain better mental health. Avoid anyone who oversells – they could be doing it because they are desperate.
• Sometimes the age of hypnotherapist matters – if they are older they could still be stuck with old remedies. Young or old, you want to find someone who practices using the latest therapy techniques.
• Although you want a therapist with good client testimonials, they are not always reliable. People manufacture testimonials all the time. If you see overly glowing reviews you should be careful. Use your gut instinct – if a review sounds too good to be true it probably is.
