Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy

“The therapists who have been wounded could provide their clients with a deeper level of

empathy, patience, and acceptance.”  – Carl Jung

•Do you have strange uncomfortable thoughts, negative internal dialogue, lack of motivation, and do not know how or where to make changes? 

•Do you feel too tired to help yourself or please others and feel lost and empty? 

•On the surface, everything seems fine, but inside, you feel alone and misunderstood and do not know why?

•Have you experienced something bad or unexpected, something you couldn’t have ever predicted, and it has turned your life upside down?  

And you don’t even know who you are anymore? 

•Do you struggle with menopause and don’t feel like you have anything to look forward to… 

•Do you have a sleeping problem, unhelpful habits relating to food, smoking, gaming etc. and want to change them?

•Do you feel you are not living life in pursuit of your authentic and core values?

I can help you! 

I have focused intentionally on purely evidence-based practice. This means I do not practice disciplines that are as yet unable to provide satisfactory evidence for their efficacy. Modern psychology describes hypnosis ((non-state model. Not Trance or trance feelings). Focuses on suggestibility of the key idea. Not trance or trance feelings. as a ‘state of increased suggestibility’. This increased suggestibility is able to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and it’s a really enjoyable experience,

Hypnotherapy and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy integrates hypnosis and hypnotherapy with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). They are each
proven effective psychotherapeutic approaches in their own right. Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy has been shown to be an even more effective and long-lasting approach than
either individual method.

Looking back at the last several years of my life, I have been thrown into navigating the mostchallenging aspects and life experiences, and there has been a complete cracking of all masks.The most significant benefit of this process is that I am learning again, like a child, to re-evaluateeverything with curiosity and enthusiasm. I have stopped trying to change facts and hopingothers will change. I have learned I do not have to change anything; it is about finding my truenature and speaking and acting from it. Whatever our quality is, that is our wealth and ourbeauty. That is what other people respond to…. I am not perfect, but I am real…

My life has been wholly transformed, so I am dedicating it to helping other people’s lives. I loveoffering the same possibility of change, encouragement, and acceptance that I have
experienced to others through my therapy sessions.

As a clinical hypnotherapist, I know many different aspects and possible outcomes (both negative and positive) about his work. Therefore, it has not always been easy for me to let go, open and allow my unconscious to just another ‘healer.’  I had to completely trust the wisdom, the knowledge and the compassion of the professional I chose to work with.  Meltem Arıkan was that professional for me.  With just 3 sessions, filled with valuable techniques, I was able to skip over the barrier, reach the desired level of comfort, confidence, and power within myself.  With a grateful heart, I recommend Meltem and her work to anyone who seeks a higher and happier version of themselves.  With eternal love and gratitude.


Meltem is an extraordinary individual who has profoundly impacted my life in a remarkably brief period. Her keen understanding of my emotions transcends my ability to articulate them. Her therapeutic approach encompasses a diverse range of methods, from hypnosis to techniques such as breathing exercises, artistic expression through drawing and writing, and the therapeutic release of dance. The outcomes are consistently mind-blowing.Thanks to her guidance, I have been navigating my struggles with depression and anxiety. Meltem has been instrumental in reshaping my perspective and mindset on life’s challenges, and I am eternally grateful for the transformative journey I have embarked upon under her care.

In our Hypnotherapy sessions I feel I’m in control, and I’m the one who accepts or not all the suggestions. This feeling makes me relax and able to collaborate during the hypnotherapy totally.  It’s very successful, and I’m surprised.
