Hypnotherapy Research – Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression:
Over the last few years a group of Quest Trained Cognitive Hypnotherapists and their clients have taken part in a hypnotherapy research project. As a result in the September 2015 issue of the Mental Health Review Journal, a peer-reviewed article comparing Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy with national results for the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme suggested that….
‘QCH may offer a brief effective treatment for clients with clinically significant levels of anxiety and/or depression, widening client choice’.
This is a wonderful and unique achievement demonstrating the robustness of Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy as a therapy model. In an average of six sessions, 71% reported themselves recovered, compared to 42% of people using other IAPT therapies.
Quest is committed to demonstrating effectiveness, one client at a time, and in doing so we believe we are setting the standard in transparency. This article also highlights the little known fact that dropout from treatment in statutory NHS services is so high that it’s hard to really have any confidence in the outcome of statutory treatment. Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy is positioned to offer a real alternative and we are working hard to bring this to the attention of both the public and the commissioners of services.
