About me

Hello, my name is Annette Sloly and I am an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist. BA Hons. DHP HPD CNHC AfSFH MNCH(Reg). I coach adults and children who need help to manage stress, anxiety and fear.

I believe that people are capable of making dramatic changes in their lives with the right strategy and support.   I enjoy helping clients realise their power, by working with them to 're-train' their brains and create positive change in their lives and achieve their goals using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. This is a modern, evidence and research based combination of hypnosis and psychotherapy, which promotes relaxation and helps clients to make beneficial lifestyle changes, increase awareness and cultivate presence. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses a combination of disciplines that can include Mindfulness, CBT, SFBT, NLP, Positive Psychology, Compassion and acceptance focused therapy.
