Hypnotherapy can be used to help alleviate mental health issues including anxiety, depression and sleeping problems like insomnia.

According to The National Student, a new mental health survey has shown the variety of mental health issues at Cambridge University. The Mental Health Survey carried out by local student focused magazine The Tab; found that the most popular form of mental illness was depression. Of 1,749 respondents, around 40 per cent of those have already been diagnosed with depression and a further 20 per cent believed they were depressed although undiagnosed. Second to depression was insomnia followed by anxiety and eating disorders.

The findings are of interest to The National Council for Hypnotherapy, an online directory of hypnotists in the UK. The professional body helps those looking for qualified and experienced hypnotists in their local area who can aid with a wide range of issues including mild mental health problems. In response to the findings a spokesperson from the Council added:

“Hypnotherapy can be used to help alleviate mental health issues including anxiety, depression and sleeping problems like insomnia. The client can be taught self help techniques which reduce the negative feelings and help them stay in control as well as using hypnosis sessions to establish the root of the mental health issue.”

The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to follow mental health issues and highlight the benefits of hypnotherapy.

NCH represents over 1800 hypnotherapy professionals within the UK and is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst our members. 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. As one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) is actively involved with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and strives to develop standards for the benefit of the profession, now and into the future.
