What is Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy?

Curative hypnotherapy is a term that refers to any type of hypnotherapy treatment that seeks to permanently cure and resolve (rather than temporarily repress) your issue or symptom.

I specialise in an advanced form of curative hypnotherapy known as Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy (LCH). This effective and enjoyable form of treatment has been gradually developed and refined since it was first developed in the 1980s by David and Helen Lesser.

Every year thousands of people across the UK seek help from a registered and licensed Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapist to help them permanently dispose of unwanted symptoms and issues. Yet despite this success, Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy remains relatively unknown –  welcome to therapy's best kept secret!

How is Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy different?

Whilst being equally as relaxing and enjoyable as other traditional forms of hypnotherapy, Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy is distinguished from these other therapies by its unique aims and objectives. 

Other forms of hypnotherapy often focus on examining the issue or symptom itself, rather than exploring why this issue has arisen or occurred in the first place. Many traditional hypnotherapists use positive suggestion and the enjoyable state of hypnosis to help a person to cope with or manage a problem that has been troubling them - perhaps encouraging them to avoid certain triggers or situations or working towards suppressing or overlaying their symptoms. This can show good short term results up to a point, but top up sessions are often required to keep the issue or symptom under control.

In contrast to this, Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy (LCH) uses the enjoyable state of hypnosis to full effect – not to control, suppress or merely manage symptoms through suggestion, but to discover the cause at the root of any problem. LCH treatment is therefore different from many other forms of hypnotherapy in that it does not overlay problems with positive suggestions but instead seeks to locate and then correct the root cause of the issue.

How Does Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy Work?

This advanced way of working is based on the following principle: if your subconscious mind is creating a certain issue, symptom, reaction, response or behaviour within you (albeit one that you are consciously desperate to be free from), then your subconscious mind has created this for a reason.

Therefore, simply suggesting or encouraging the subconscious mind to behave differently can have only a temporary or partial effect, perhaps providing short-term relief or redirecting the symptom elsewhere. After all, if the subconscious mind has a need or reason to be causing such a symptom (be that a physical, emotional or behavioural symptom), then it will always seek to continue doing so, despite what you may consciously want or what anybody else may suggest.

So wouldn't it instead be worth finding out, from the subconscious mind itself, exactly what this reason or need is?

Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy does exactly that - by seeking to discover the reason why the subconscious is creating the symptom, LCH is able to work directly with, rather than against, the subconscious mind.

Treatment works towards identifying and understanding this reason and then ultimately correcting the misunderstanding behind it, all while you are beautifully and enjoyably relaxed. Only by correcting this root cause can a lasting and permanent relief from symptoms be facilitated, allowing you to be entirely free from your unwanted problem rather than merely managing or controlling it.

Why people choose Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy

Over the years many hypnosis practitioners have included the word 'curative' when describing their treatment, despite using methods of hypnotherapy that do not resolve the underlying cause of the issue or in any way effect a 'cure'. In the past, clients were often seeking out help from 'curative' hypotherapists, only to find they were having their symptoms merely repressed or managed through traditional suggestion hypnotherapy, rather than fully resolved as they had hoped. 

Due to concern over the confusion that this was causing for clients, the trademark Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy was registered to clearly distinguish those therapists who provide a truly curative method of working by seeking to correct the root cause and provide lasting relief.

With a licensed Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapist such as myself, you can be guaranteed that you are working with a professional who will appreciate the uniqueness of your individual issue.

A licensed Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapist will work with you and your subconscious to discover and correct the root cause of your issue in a way that is not only beneficial but also highly enjoyable and relaxing.

Only those therapists who achieve and maintain a standard of excellence in examination and continued training and professional development are licensed to work as Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapists. For more information on the trademark, please see the FAQ section.
