Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

HR-B-portraitFor most people hypnotherapy will be something new and unknown; they will want to know a bit more about it before deciding whether to try it, so I offer the first meeting at half price, and I can explain how I work.

Working with hypnosis is simply a variation of everyday experience. Disconnection is rather like daydreaming; it brings a feeling of time distortion that is a variation of “time flies when you are enjoying yourself”. My clients invariably walk out feeling lighter than when they walked in.

It is a way to allow a mood of openness & curiosity about ourselves, and the world we find ourselves in. The focus in the therapy is on the client, and the resources each person brings with them.

Hypnosis provides a unique opportunity to explore what we focus on, and how we focus on it. Focusing on the “good things” helps us to get into a more constructive frame of mind. These shifts come from the client’s discovery rather than the wisdom of the therapist, and so results are more achievable and lasting.

The relaxed hypnotic state allows the mind to drift. And arrive at new answers.

I specialise in anxiety-based issues.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy offers an opportunity to

  • Create an attitude of positive expectation towards the future
  • Emphasise action, more useful than examining causes from the past
  • Learn new skills
  • Unlearn unhelpful skills, & unhelpful habits

Trained as a teacher, I have twenty-seven years professional experience working as a therapist one to one with clients of all ages, helping physical, emotional, and mind problems; before training in hypnotherapy I worked mainly through homeopathy.

Shortly after I had experienced the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy for my own depression, I trained at the renowned Clifton Practice in Bristol.  Neuroscience-based Solution Focused Hypnotherapy incorporates the best of NLP, CBT & Eriksonian Hypnotherapy. It can lead to permanent change as new neural pathways are established in the brain, replacing old pathways, replacing old patterns.

I have raised a family and experienced many of the stresses of modern life, and I get enormous satisfaction from helping individuals to vision and implement new paths.  Working positively, we imagine the future that you want for yourself; it is above all a creative process.
