Mindful Equilibrium: 1 to 1 Therapy: Inner Peace Through CBH & Detached Mindfulness
Introduction to Detached Mindfulness & CBH in Therapy
Detached mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy (CBH) are groundbreaking approaches in the realm of therapeutic interventions. While they hail from different origins, their confluence in therapy offers a unique and potent pathway to healing and well-being.
Detached Mindfulness: At its core, detached mindfulness emphasizes a non-judgmental observation of one’s thoughts and feelings. Rather than being swept away by emotions or becoming entangled in negative thought patterns, individuals learn to view their internal experiences from a distance, like a spectator. This detachment fosters a profound sense of inner calm, enabling individuals to respond to life’s challenges with equanimity rather than reactivity.
Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy (CBH): CBH combines the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy with the transformative power of hypnosis. It targets maladaptive beliefs and behaviors, replacing them with healthier alternatives. When intertwined with hypnotherapy, clients can delve deeper into their subconscious, accessing and altering long-held beliefs that often lie at the root of distress.
The Synergy in Therapy: When detached mindfulness and CBH come together in therapy, clients are equipped with a dual arsenal against distress. They gain the clarity to discern their thought patterns, and the tools to reshape them. The result is a heightened state of relaxation, a fortified resilience against stress, and an enduring inner calm. This blend not only alleviates symptoms but also empowers individuals to navigate future challenges with grace and poise.
In today’s high-paced world, the benefits of relaxation and inner calm cannot be overstated. They serve as protective shields against the onslaught of daily stressors, promote mental clarity, and pave the way for holistic well-being. Through the combined power of detached mindfulness and CBH, clients are ushered into a sanctuary of peace, where relaxation isn’t just a fleeting moment, but a sustained state of being.

The role of the initial assessment in session 1, is in partnership with you the client, is to build the case formulation and development of a treatment plan. This plan will be a working document that will change over the course of all therapy sessions.
Therapies and strategies employed, will be selected to meet the treatment plan goals and objectives.
No 2 therapy sessions are alike.
No therapy can guarantee 100% success. This is not unique to talking therapies, even clinical medicines have an efficacy of far below 100%.
In Therapy we will develop together SMART goals which are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and time bound.
Learning to reframe and cope with a pressing issue is sometimes what is necessary to rebalance mental health and to live a life that is acceptable and manageable.
Real problems require real solutions, and many problems involve factors to which we have no control over. To borrow the wise words from psychologist Viktor Frankl
“WHEN WE ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO CHANGE A SITUATION, WE ARE CHALLENGED TO CHANGE OURSELVES.”
On balance, sessions run for an on average of 6 sessions.
This approach to therapy is not designed to become someone’s life support, that rolls in year in year out.
The plan is to define a treatment plan in session 1, agree goals and objectives and set about to achieve those objectives in the following sessions.
When things are not working. The plan is reviewed and amended where necessary.
