I help people to use their imagination to uncover what their best self would be like and the steps they can take to get there. 

Q. What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy? 

A. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a modern form of hypnotherapy that uses practical, safe and well-researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time. It is based on current neuro-scientific research of how the brain works and has a wealth of evidence supporting its effectiveness.

 

Whilst the past is acknowledged and respected, the therapy focuses on where you are now in your life and where you would like to be. 

 

The mind can't tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined so we don’t talk about the ‘issue’ in sessions. This only magnifies it and tricks the mind into thinking more about the problem. Instead, I help you to use your imagination to uncover what your best self would be like, which is totally unique and individual to each and every person. 

Free, no obligation initial consultation 


Before we begin sessions, we will meet online for an initial consultation which normally lasts around 30 minutes.  

This provides you with a valuable opportunity to understand more about how the therapy works and discuss whether it is a suitable intervention for you.  

Following the initial consultation, I will send you a free hypnotherapy recording for you to listen to that will help to reduce anxiety and stress and thereby facilitate a mindset that is increasingly solution focused.

Q. What happens in the sessions? 

A. From the very first appointment I will explain and discuss how the brain works. This is so empowering as it allows us to understand why we suffer the way we do and what we can do about it.  

The sessions comprise a combination of talk therapy and hypnosis. Hypnosis is simply a state of focused attention that is completely natural; we all experience going into a hypnotic state of mind in our everyday lives!  

 

Have you ever driven home and not remembered anything about the journey, or been engrossed in a book and not been conscious of time passing? These are both examples of being in a hypnotic state of mind!  

In this relaxed, natural state, your mind is more responsive to suggestions and we are able to quieten the voice in our head that stems from the conscious part of our brain. In doing so we gain access to the subconscious mind, allowing the mind to focus on and become much more receptive to beneficial suggestions and changes.  

In therapy sessions we harness the power of hypnosis to dissolve unhelpful past programming, break the negative states of anxiety and depression, and move you towards your goals.  

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process whereby clients must be willing to engage with the process and hold a desire to change and improve their own lives.  

I will help you utilise this state to encourage positive change, allowing you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
