Anything that works towards helping those suffering from mental health issues is a great cause. Regular hypnotherapy classes could be used in conjunction with the prescribed books helping to reinforce any practices learnt in the hypnotherapy classes.

According to an article published on the 11th June 2013 in the Gazette and Herald, a new scheme has been introduced to help some six million people in England who suffer from conditions such as depression and anxiety. The Reading Well Books on Prescription will enable GPs and other health workers to recommend 30 self help titles for people to borrow from the local library on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, phobias, panic attacks and eating habits. Jonathan Seed, cabinet member of libraries in Wiltshire explained:

“This scheme will allow anyone in Wiltshire, in need of such support, to access self-help books locally and for free. Our libraries are friendly, community focused places, so I am delighted we are able to participate and help support the health and well being of many local people.”

The scheme is welcomed by The National Council for Hypnotherapy who regularly deals with clients who are looking for some complementary therapy with issues such as anxiety, panic attacks and depression. A spokesperson from the Council added:

“Anything that works towards helping those suffering from mental health issues is a great cause. Regular hypnotherapy classes could be used in conjunction with the prescribed books helping to reinforce any practices learnt in the hypnotherapy classes.”
The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to highlight the benefits of using hypnotherapy for a wide range of issues.

Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites.
