Alison Alexander HPD DSFH AfSFH
I am an Experienced,Successful and Professional Solution Focused Hypnotherapist seeing clients face to face in Exeter, Devon and also Online in London
The type of hypnotherapy that I practice is Solution Focused which means that although we acknowledge a problem, we don't need to concentrate on it and instead focus on how you would prefer things to be be. It is a very relaxing and positive process and has been shown to help many disorders and conditions. All sessions are tailored around your individual needs and are enjoyable as well as therapeutic.
As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, I have helped many people and have experience of helping those with issues such as anxiety, low mood, fears and phobias, stress, panic attacks, confidence issues, relaxation, motivation issues, coping problems and much more.
I have many years experience of working with people, mainly in the health sector and am passionate about helping individuals to overcome their issues and move forward to a happier future. It was during my Nursing career that I first encountered the positive and very therapeutic qualities of Hypnotherapy. This inspired me to undertake hypnotherapy training for myself at the Observatory Practice in Plymouth, part of the renowned Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training.
I have a practice in Exeter, Devon and also work online seeing clients mainly in Devon and London. I offer a free Initial consultation which is a time for you to meet me and for us to discuss how Hypnotherapy can help you.

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.

Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Each face to face in Devon session is £60 and lasts approximately 50- 60 mins. Online These sessions are a combination of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy, using modern Solution focused techniques.
The Initial Consultation is FREE and is a chance for us to meet and discuss the changes that you want to make, so that you can decide if this is the right therapy for you. I will explain the way the brain creates the conditions we experience, and this in itself is a powerful catalyst for change. I will let you know how many sessions we can expect to be working together – specific phobias and fears usually take 3 sessions following the initial consultation, whereas general therapy requires 8-12 sessions, although this will vary from person to person. No trance work is included in this consultation, which lasts for approx 40 minutes.
