Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
So what is it all about then?
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an effective combination of talking therapy and hypnosis which enables me to help people relax, regenerate & grow.
SFH combines psychotherapies with hypnotherapy, a hypno-psychotherapy. The psychotherapy I use is called Solution Focused Brief Therapy; developed in the 1980’s SFBT combines the key parts of psychotherapies such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) with a focus on positivity, the avoidance of negativity & traumatic events from the past. When used together they can be a powerful combination & which provide me with a number of tools to help you.
SFBT is a measurable therapy where clients are able to see the progress they are making week on week. I encourage my clients to find positive solutions and focus on achieving future goals one small step at a time. Very different to some ‘conventional therapy’ which involves focusing on historical issues. The ethos of SFBT is, “You don’t need to know what a problem is in order to solve it”.
Essentially, I then combine these approaches with a calming relaxing trance. This reinforces the message of the session and the goals you have set; much more effective than just talking about it. The trance also helps create change allowing you to move forward in small steps within a relatively quick time frame & break negative behaviours.
Trance is very ordinary in many ways. We go into trance many times a day, when we are driving, reading a book, watching the television or (dare I say it) in a meeting. It's that state of mind, when you are driving somewhere, lost in thought and you can't remember how you got to your destination. When we are in that state, we have access to the subconscious mind and that helps us enormously.
SFH is also influenced by modern research into how the brain works; how depression, anxiety, OCD, phobia's & confidence issues are created. Therefore, as a brain-based therapist, I am able to use the latest neuroscientific research to educate and empower you so you can understand what is happening, what is making you behave, think & act the way you are and what I am able to do to help you to use your own initiative & to innovate and get the real person back.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on positivity so I will can help you find positive solutions to your problems & avoid the negative, traumatic events from the past helps engaged clients to recover quickly & effectively. SFH is a measurable therapy where you are able to see the progress you are making week on week. I combine this with the mindfulness techniques I have learnt & practised myself – another tool for you to take away with you.
My goal is to induce a state of relaxation, where the brain will work hard to come up with the solutions you need to move forward.
My room is a dedicated professional space which is welcoming, comfortable & relaxing. Based in my home there is the advantage of plenty of free parking and few comings & goings ensuring that it is a quiet space enabling clients to relax & focus more easily.
