Contra - indications for Treatment

Contra Although hypnotherapy is complementary to medicine, it is not a substitute for help that should be obtained from your GP, a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist. Therefore if you have severe or disabling anxiety, feel very depressed, or have any unexplained physical symptoms, please see your doctor as well as coming to see me. With your consent I may contact your doctor for advice. Hypnotherapy may help you to feel better quite quickly, but do not stop taking any medication without first consulting your doctor.


I will sometimes seek written advice from your doctor before continuing with therapy


Although hypnotherapy is a choice treatment for neurotic disorders, it is contra-indicated in psychosis (it is likely to make you worse).

You should consult your GP for suitable treatment for psychosis
