Approach to Therapy & How I Work
Philip is a proponent of evidence based practice. His studies in the field have lead him to examine the empirical evidence supporting therapeutic interventions in clinical hypnotherapy and integrating the best research evidence into the decision making process for client care. His approach to hypnotherapy is heavily influenced by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which provides a wealth of evidence to support his techniques and advance therapeutic outcomes. The field of hypnosis alone benefits from over 12,000 published studies which lend weight to its effectiveness. Studies have shown that combining hypnosis with CBT can be more effective than employing techniques in CBT alone. As a qualified practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), he often draws on techniques from this field to enhance the client experience.
