What Zak Powers Clients Say
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in Dublin
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) aims to assist clients to overcome their difficulties by identifying and changing there thinking errors, behaviour, and emotions. This involves helping patients develop skills to change beliefs, identifying thinking errors and changing behaviours.
Treatment is based the collaboration between the client and Zak. Once those thoughts have been challenged, your feelings are easier to change. Zak believes that most people can overcome any emotional disability by working harder. So be prepared for some homework, as CBT does require you to record your progress and challenge your behaviour in between sessions with Zak.
But its not just about working harder; Zak will help you to work clever. The techniques of CBT will allow you to see your world from a new angle and this often brings relief and a new found ability to change behaviour that up until now, you may have felt would never change.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be used to successfully treat the following conditions and disorders:
Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis - Dublin
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and concentration which brings you to a place of heightened awareness. It is a natural trance state, like daydreaming, when the mind is relaxed and focused.
Hypnotherapy is a treatment that is based on an understanding that the mind and body are working in unison. By achieving the hypnotic state, the body's mental and physical self-healing processes, which lie in the subconscious, are activated.
When undergoing hypnotherapy, you are both conscious and aware and more sensitive to the power of positive suggestion. Everyone is capable of sleep and trance experiences such as daydreaming and can therefore be hypnotised. Simply put, when in the self-hypnotic state, you are in a more open frame of mind to take on board the idea and suggestions which can help you change your behaviour and responses to your problems. For many clients change happens quicker when re-enforced with hypnosis.
There are some exceptions, such as young children, people with mental difficulties, patients suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar conditions, suicidal tendencies, senility, alcohol or drug psychosis, epilepsy, pathological personalities or manic depression. If you have any of the above conditions, hypnosis is not helpful and you should not undergo hypnotherapy.
But hypnotherapy is useful for treating a wide range of problems and difficulties. It should be considered as an option after your doctor has made a diagnosis and recommends hypnotherapy as a course of treatment. If you self-refer for hypnotherapy, depending on the presenting problem, Zak may have to refer you back to your doctor before beginning treatments. This will not be necessary for problems such as quitting smoking, assisting with weight loss or self-esteem issues.
Hypnotherapy, used in conjunction with CBT, can successfully treat the following conditions and problems:
