Radical Rest Study RESULTS!
The study commenced from June 2020 to October 2020. During the Radical Rest Hypnotherapy study participants were offered 5 x 1 hour Hypnotherapy sessions (with the 5th session free of charge, as an incentive to get involved in the study) to work with a particular issue of their choosing and which presented as appropriate to treat with Hypnotherapy. The Participants were offered one session per week on a specific day, to promote consistency and a better opportunity of a positive result.
Participants were from the UK and America and all sessions were carried out over Zoom. Promotions were done to gather interest through social media and The Radical Rest informational and FAQ’s blog post.
Participants identified a wide range of symptoms that they wanted to work with below;
- Low mood
- Severe anxiety issues around a particular situation
- Mild anxiety symptoms
- Low confidence
- High stress
- Feeling irritable around specific issues
- Intrusive thoughts
For the purpose of this study similar symptoms were grouped together and some symptoms were generalised for anonymity.
The clients also had been experiencing these symptoms from 3 months to over 5 years.
The following MYMOP2 form was used to capture symptoms and ratings as pictured below.
Questions were asked around those particular issues and clients scored as follows:
Main Specific Symptoms - Before any Hypnotherapy intervention
In between sessions participants were asked to do a particular task/s that were identified and agreed in session that would help them towards their overall goal of reducing their specific symptom.
Participants were also asked to update on any issues outside of session that could possibly affect their progress towards their goal.
MYMOP2 Follow up form used as pictured below at the end of session 5.
Main Specific Symptoms - After Hypnotherapy Intervention
The participants’ symptoms towards a specific goal in Hypnotherapy were improved; with the total shift being moved towards being improved overall and the lower scores identified. See bar chart below of before and after Hypnotherapy treatment of specific symptoms. The Mean was taken for the Mild Anxiety and High Stress results in order to present the results on the bar chart. However, the table below shows the individual results.
BH = Before Hypnotherapy
AH = After Hypnotherapy

Table of Results
Participants also made the following comments:
“Serena made my sessions extremely relaxing. She provided me with tools to work on my anxiety, which I must say have worked. Her soothing voice and caring nature helped the process. I strongly recommend her services to anyone”
“I love her approach to each session and could tell she listened intently and learned of areas to work through together. A couple of weeks after finishing and I’ve taken those practices with me, to help me in times of need”
“I was amazed at how my life improved within one session! And by the end of the course I was sleeping better, feeling much less anxious, finding joy in life again (even with the spectre of Covid-19 hovering over our shoulders), and being less self-critical.”
“Family members have commented on how less stressed I seem to be, I am sleeping better and, since starting working with Serena, I haven’t had any of the debilitating nightmares that have plagued me for decades.”
