At Clifton Down Hypnotherapy in Clifton, Bristol I practise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy together with a cognitive approach to move towards your required goals.
Together we use hypnotherapy ,mental exercises and positive thinking to move you toward your goals.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy encourages you to use resources already within yourself to make the changes you require. We achieve this by focusing on the solutions rather than dwelling on problems of the past.
It is commonly assumed that you can explain your problems to the hypnotherapist who is able to hypnotize them away, but this is not the case.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is very much a partnership and joint effort between you and the hypnotherapist.
The hypnotherapist requires you to focus on the solutions which enable the hypnotherapist to help you make the necessary changes.
Personally I have a wide range of interests and a well-rounded experience of life, having worked as a teacher, a physicist, and in various capacities in the business world.
My broad life experience has contributed to my personal qualities which I would characterise as understanding, sensitive, and empathetic yet realistic.
I understand that for some people with disabilities it is impossible to come to me for in certain circumstances I am willing to do home visits in the near vicinity. Weekend appointments can be made available
