Alex Parsons - DSFH
I'm a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist practicing in East/Central Bristol.
I help people with problems arising from stress, anxiety, fear, anger and depression. Working closely in therapy we can find strategies to leave behind problems of the past and so focus on growing into the real you.
Please see all the areas I work with below.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is supported by my clients understanding how their brains work, examining what a better life would look like and using the power of Hypnosis to create positive change.
I have worked in senior roles in the corporate world and as a creative in the music industry. I have a passion for writing and so have always been extremely interested in the creative process. As such I have always been active in following the latest research into the workings of the mind.
I have been practicing mindfulness, and other meditation techniques, for several years and I enjoy bringing these ideas and beneficial practices into the therapy room. I volunteer with a charity, the Mindful Life, that offers mindfulness training for Carers.
I have a young family and am very proud to say that my wife gave birth at home, twice, helped by hypnotherapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am fortunate to have been trained by David Newton of Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training, a recognised Centre of Excellence for Hypnotherapy which was awarded Gold Standard in 2006. It was here that I gained my Diploma in Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy (DSFH) in 2015.
I am also a trained mindfulness practitioner.
I have extended CRB check status to enable me to work with children and teenagers.
I continue to study, attend lectures and regular supervision to keep up-to-date of any advancements in the field.
Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.
