There are more than 2 million people in the UK and between 6-10 million in the US who suffer from Trichotillomania (TM). Hypnotherapy is a very effective tool in the treatment of this self mutilating OCD.
Anne Thornton-Patterson, a specialist in TM and who is also National Council for Hypnotherapy recognised expert, has co-authored a manal for hypnotherapists with author and OCD hypnotherapist Steven Harold.
Anne and Steven have over the years developed a eight session protocol to aid other professional hypnotherapists to carry out this work successfully.
The manual details an eight session protocol in a step-by-step approach to helping clients who pull hair from the head, eyelashes and eyebrows and hair from many other places on their body in an obsessive way.
The manual includes fact gathering forms and questionnaires, drawings that your clients complete that provide crucial convincers to use that proves that your clients are progressing.
Each session is divided into tasks including:- What forms to complete and when
What information is important to extract and use in later sessions
The review of your client's progress and what to ask and at times what not to ask
The order of each session
Adapting each session to fit your style
What to do inbetween sessions The manual provides a thorough structure and yet also has the freedom to allow you to adapt it to suit your training, experience and style. This is your chance to specialise in an area that needs effective hypnotherapists. Click here to
