CASE STUDY: Transforming Self-Doubt: A Journey to Inner Peace through Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy


In this case study, we explore the transformative journey of Client C, who grappled with self-doubt and longstanding negative behaviours in certain relationships. Through the power of Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH), Client C embarked on a path of self-discovery, gaining confidence and inner peace.


Client C struggled with self-doubt and negative behaviours within certain family, friend and workplace dynamics. Her confidence wavered, leading her to cave in, minimize her work, and spin into negative self-talk during challenging conversations. This case study sheds light on how CBH addressed these issues, fostering personal growth and positive change.

CBH Intervention:

1. Affirmation and Mindset Shift:

Together, Client C and the therapist crafted new, empowering affirmations: "I stand strong in what I do; I believe in what I do." These affirmations aimed to counteract negative self-talk and instill a more positive mindset.

2. Assertiveness Training:

CBH sessions included practicing assertiveness in various scenarios, particularly during conversations where Client C would typically succumb to belittling or minimizing her skills and knowledge. Role-playing exercises helped her navigate these situations with confidence and assertiveness.

3. Breaking Negative Patterns:

Hypnotherapy sessions delved into the root causes of self-doubt and negative behaviours, aiming to break these ingrained patterns. Client C learned to recognise and interrupt negative thought cycles, fostering a more positive and self-affirming inner dialogue.

Results and Feedback:

1. Major Breakthroughs:

Client C experienced significant breakthroughs during hypnotherapy sessions. The process of self-discovery and addressing negative patterns led to a newfound understanding and acceptance of herself.

2. Inner Peace and Calm:

As a result of the CBH intervention, Client C reported a growing sense of inner peace and calm. The sessions allowed her to release long-standing tensions and anxieties, paving the way for a more serene and centered state of being.

3. Increased Assertiveness:

The assertiveness training in CBH translated into real-life changes. Client C began speaking more openly with assertiveness and confidence, marking a positive shift in her interpersonal interactions.

4. Positive External Feedback:

Those around Client C noticed a tangible change in her demeanour. Others perceived her increased calmness and confidence, fostering a more positive response from her social and familial circles.

Client Feedback:

Client C expressed gratitude, stating,

"Kerry quickly puts you at ease with her compassionate approach. It has definitely helped break a habit and given me more inner peace and confidence."

This feedback underscores the transformative impact of CBH on Client C's self-perception and overall well-being.


Client C's journey exemplifies the profound impact of Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy in addressing self-doubt and negative behaviours. Through affirmations, assertiveness training, and breaking negative patterns, she experienced major breakthroughs, gaining inner peace and confidence. This case study underscores the potential for positive change and personal growth through CBH, offering hope and inspiration to others on a similar path of self-discovery.
