Philip Roberts MNCH (Reg.), Dip. (Hyp) 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. He is a member by qualification of the UK's leading professional body in hypnotherapy, The National Council for Hypnotherapy and is registered with Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council.
Overcome your fear of flying
A particular specialism of Philip's is helping overcome a fear of flying. Phobias can have a hugely negative effect on your quality of life and a fear of flying is no exception. It can prevent you from enjoying a family holiday, a trip with friends or visiting relatives abroad. It can prevent you from progressing in your career or broadening your horizons. Even if you board an aircraft, when you arrive at your destination after a traumatic flight, the misery starts to build up again for the return journey which will be equally or more traumatic. As a licensed pilot, Philip is able to bring an understanding of flight and aircraft systems into the therapy room. Evidence suggests that gaining an understanding of the various phases of flight and the operation of the aircraft will advance therapeutic outcomes considerably. Philip can teach you coping strategies that you can put into practice to tackle the way you think, feel and behave when faced with the prospect of air travel.
A private and comfortable therapeutic environment
Philip offers a confidential service from a private, comfortable and well appointed consultation room in Bedfordshire, England. With good road and rail access, it is well situated for visiting clients based in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and London. With video-conferencing becoming a popular mode of conducting hypnotherapy sessions, Philip is also experienced in delivering hypnotherapy sessions via Skype to national and international clients.
Philip enjoys meeting clients face-to-face but offering telehypnosis in his practice provides clients with more choice (and him with the opportunity of seeing clients he would otherwise not have met). Some clients have a need for telehypnosis such as being in a location where access to therapy, or a therapist that is right for them, is restricted. Mobility issues can also be a factor for clients opting for telehypnosis. Other clients simply prefer the convenience and the reduced time and cost of travelling. Telehypnosis can be a positive experience and just as effective as face-to-face sessions.
