I am a fully qualified and insured Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DHP) and the prestigious Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD). The HPD is widely considered to be the ‘gold standard’ in hypnotherapy qualifications. I am also a qualified Speech and Language Therapist with specialist experience in the field of stammering.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with a wide variety of issues, including:
- Stress and anxiety
- Fostering a positive attitude to life
- Overcoming fears and phobias
- Improving confidence
- Increasing focus and motivation
- Improving sleep
- Smoking and other addictions
- Enhancing sports performance
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Reducing pain
- Stammering / stuttering (combined with my specialist experience as a Speech and Language Therapist).
It is of course important that medical advise is sought for any serious medical concerns.
My approach uses a powerful combination of Solution Focused Therapy, Brain Based Therapy and Hypnotherapy, based on up to date research from neuroscience as well as the very best elements of cognitive behavioural therapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming.
Solution Focused Therapy – clients explore their preferred future and are supported in identifying the small, positive steps that will help move their lives forward. The past can’t be changed so we don’t focus on it. Our thought processes can change. Every day is a new start, an opportunity to move forward in a positive way.
Brain based therapy – explains how our mind creates unwanted behaviours and symptoms and allows us to see how we can harness its power to work for, rather than against, us.
Hypnotherapy uses the very natural state of hypnosis, experienced by us all daily, to create change at a subconscious level.
Hypnosis is a very naturally occurring state – we all go in and out of this state of trance several times a day, often without noticing. Examples include driving on the motorway without hitting anything, but you can’t remember the last few junctions, becoming so engrossed in a book or TV programme that you don’t notice someone entering the room or focusing so intently on a task that time passes in an instant. It’s very similar to day dreaming and many people are surprised at how natural it feels. You will remain in complete control, just as when driving or engrossed in a book – if someone pulls in front of you or calls your name, you immediately become consciously aware of what is happening again.
Hypnosis opens your subconscious mind to positive suggestion. Hypnotherapy uses this to your benefit.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process between client and therapist and several sessions are often required. The combination of your commitment to the therapy process and my skills and knowledge in the field of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy makes the achievement of your goals and a brighter future a real possibility!
