Procedural Hypnosis At The Abbey

Reduce Stress and Anxiety

This is a technique to help patients use their internal resources and focused attention to have a comfortable experience of any medical or dental procedure they wish to undertake.


What is Procedural Hypnosis?

This is NOT hypnotherapy in its usual sense. We teach a ‘self-hypnosis’ technique to help you to deal with any stresses and anxieties that occur.

This gives the patient a skill they can use on their own for future procedures in any setting. It is a useful asset to have.


The Benefits of Procedural Hypnosis

Having learnt the self hypnosis technique, patients can extend its use to help them:

  • deal with stress and anxieties that occur
  • manage chronic pain
  • improve their compliance with wearing dental, occlusal and sleep apnoea appliances
