I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist working in North Dorset and Salisbury. My Primary focus is to help clients achieve their full potential, overcome any limitations and make lasting positive changes in their lives.
I work from my own private therapy room in Gillingham, Dorset and also from The Practice Rooms in Salisbury.
What is Solution- Focused Hypnotherapy?
It combines modern hypnosis with Solution-Focused and NLP techniques. Hypnosis (trance) is when we concentrate our attention on a single idea or focus, rather like meditation. Trance is not sleep: the client is very much in control and in touch with their surroundings. If anything, the trance state is a heightened state of awareness. This modern Hypnotherapy utilises the clinically proven techniques of CBT, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and other approaches which combined with a state of trance helps people make significant positive changes within a relatively short period of time.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained and qualified as a Counsellor in 2006 and have gained a wealth of experience working with clients with a range of different issues.
I then went on and trained as a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, at the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol - one of the leading Schools for Hypnotherapy in the UK.
I am also fully trained and qualified to work with Children and Adolescents. I am DBS approved.
I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy and The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I am fully accredited and insured. I am bound by the strict professional code of conduct and ethics of the Profession. I am registered with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).
