Sessions

Sometimes, to achieve the goal we desire, we need some tough love to get us there. With a warm, caring approach underpinned with a solid strategy that delivers results, I work with you to identify and overcome the blocks that hold you back, realise your confidence again and create a measurable positive change. We work together to help you to learn how to manage your thoughts and feelings in order to live a more rich, full, and meaningful life. Using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, this clinical, evidence and research-based combination of hypnosis and psychotherapy can help promote relaxation and achieve beneficial lifestyle changes. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on what you want to achieve rather than on the problem you are seeking to change.

Modern neuroscience and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy are natural partners that have been proven scientifically to facilitate positive mental change. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy draws on the best of Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness, CBT, NLP, ACT and Positive Psychology. A recent ‘Clinical Review’ of hypnosis and relaxation therapies published in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) looked at the existing research on hypnosis and concluded, ‘There is good evidence from randomised controlled trials that both hypnosis and relaxation techniques can reduce anxiety […]’, the same report also concluded that hypnosis was proven to be effective in treating panic attacks and phobia. (Vickers & Zollman, ‘Hypnosis and relaxation therapies,’ BMJ 1999;319: 1346-1349)

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind which can be induced by concentration on a single idea or focus. In a therapeutic setting hypnosis provides a powerful tool to access subconscious thought patterns and behaviours and resolve issues that lie beyond the capabilities of the conscious mind.  The deep state of relaxation and solution focused awareness offers a perspective for new insights and understanding to develop with the skilful help and support of the Hypnotherapist.  Hypnosis can also be described as ‘controlled imagination’, (Spiegel 2007) a relaxed mental state that allows the client to ‘daydream’ and positive change is encouraged at a deeper level. Hypnotherapy is a safe, reliable method of treatment for many problems, has no harmful side effects and is suitable for just about everybody.
