Effectiveness of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Various empirical studies have shown that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy  is effective and  helps around 70 per cent of people. According to a 2004 review by INSERM of three methods, cognitive behavioural therapy was either “proven” or “presumed” to be an effective therapy on several specific mental disorders. According to the study, CBT was effective at treating schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress, anxiety disorders, bulimia, anorexia, personality disorders and alcohol dependency (INSERM Collective Expertise Centre (2000). “Psychotherapy: Three approaches evaluated) .

It is important to be clear however, that ultimately the most important driver in determining success rate is the motivation of the client to want to effect change, and their commitment to practicing the techniques taught during the course of the therapy. 

Availability & Fees

Jana is available 7 days a week between 10am and 10pm.

All one to one sessions take approximately 50 minutes and cost £80. The fee includes any e-mail, text or phone feedback discussed between the sessions.  

Jana also offers Skype and phone sessions for £65 per session. 

Cancellation Fee

The usual 24 hours cancellation policy applies to all  appointments, therefore you are liable for the full cost of the session in case of a missed appointment. However, personal tragedy is the only exception when this policy won’t be applied.  

I accept payments in  cash , or by cheque, PayPal and online payment. All online payments have to be made prior to an appointment. 


How many sessions will I need?

Effectiveness of the therapy doesn’t only depend on the number of sessions, but also on your commitment to practice learnt CBT or/and Hypnotherapy techniques between the sessions. They need to be practiced on regular basis to make desired difference. That said, most of my clients begin to notice changes towards their ultimate therapy goal within 4 to 8 sessions, but this largely depends on the severity of their problems. 

Effectiveness of Clinical Hypnotherapy

Randomised controlled trials support the use of various relaxation techniques for treating both acute and chronic pain. A systematic review has found that hypnosis enhances the effects of CBT for conditions such as phobia, anxiety, obesity, depression and anxiety. Hypnosis and a regular practice of self-hypnosis may significantly reduce general anxiety, tension and stress ( the Professional Affairs Board of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
