Hypnosis for Dementia
In August 2008, I came across a study about hypnosis for dementia in the UK by Dr. Dan Nightingale and Dr. Simon Duff. They found that people living with dementia who had received hypnosis therapy showed an improvement in concentration, memory and socialization compared to the other two treatment groups. Relaxation, motivation and daily living activities also improved with the use of hypnosis. And, what really impressed me, is the improvements continued in a followup study 12 months after the hypnosis sessions had concluded.
That study excited me as I have been using hypnosis for dementia with clients since 1998.

Relaxation, motivation and daily living activities also improved with the use of hypnosis. And what really impressed me, is the improvements continued in a follow-up study twenty-one months after the hypnosis sessions concluded.
