Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy has demonstrated 70% enhanced treatment outcomes and long term remission compared to CBT alone, in meta-analysis of 18 relative studies. 
Additionally, hypnosis sessions can also deal with associated phobias, substance abuse, eating disorders, low self esteem, social behavior patterns, motivation development, etc, commonly encountered in such patients, at the subconscious level. 
Methods like reframing, ego reinforcement, releasing tension, taking responsibility, age progression, physical dissociation, metaphor, anchors, confusion techniques for facilitating specific amnesia, have profound long term impact.
Dr Stavros Saripanidis is also certified in providing clinical hypnotherapy interventions.
