Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

I practise this simple and modern hypnotherapy. This approach differs from other methods of therapy by focusing on the solutions and how you want things to be, rather than analysing problems or the past. It is a safe and powerful psychotherapeutic tool and an extremely relaxing and pleasant experience. It is a positive experience which uses hypnosis to help you achieve your own desired outcome. This therapy will help reduce levels of anxiety, which can be the cause of many conditions or make conditions worse. It will help you have a clearer outlook on life and enjoy it.

In the initial consultation I will begin by explaining how the brain works with respect to your condition. This will help you to understand your experiences and problems. I will give you a CD, which will help with this process. The subsequent sessions will consist of two parts. In the first part we will work together, focusing on your goals and positive solutions. The second part of the session is hypnosis or trance, which is designed to consolidate the therapeutic work in the first part – it is also the relaxing part!

The hypnotic state is very common, one we all experience every day of our lives. Whenever you become engrossed in something you are doing such as driving a car, reading a book or walking and lose touch with time passing, then you’ve probably entered a self-induced hypnotic state. When we are in a state of hypnosis we are extremely relaxed yet in a state of focused attention. You are in control and aware of your surroundings at all times. In a hypnotic trance your mind is more responsive to suggestion. These suggestions are designed to help you change unhelpful thought patterns.

This therapy is a two way process so it is vital that you commit fully and be open to change. I help you find the solutions, which are usually buried deep inside, and, with the help of hypnosis, get the real you back. My aim is to change your life for the better.
