Anja Oelbracht ~ DHP, HPD Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy, SF Supervisor
I am passionate about facilitating positive changes in people's lives and giving them the opportunity to find a solution that really fits in with their immediate life leaving them feeling empowered about being able to deal with what ever life challenges them with by themselves in a positive, peaceful and forward looking manner.
Solution Focused Therapy is mostly about knowing which part of the brain does what and why these parts of your brain make you do what they do and how you can easily achieve intellectual control and live your life the way you want to: peacefully, positively, energetically, efficiently and happy, with good coping mechanisms for the challenges that you meet in your life and free from self-limiting thoughts and behaviourisms.
The reason for most conditions that hypnotherapy can help with, be it Stress, Shyness, Low Self-Esteem, Low Motivation, Weight gain or loss, Insomnia, Phobias, Smoking, Depression, Panic Attacks, IBS and much more are based on anxiety. These are symptoms of the fight, flight and freeze area of the brain being too much in control of the sufferer's life. Even though you might not feel anxious – like many smokers would tell you, not being able to let go of a habit is the Amygdala deeming it unsafe to stop smoking.
It’s simple really and this has been proven again and again through neuroscience and many years of practice of this method. Solution Focused Therapy is being seen as the Gold Standard in therapy for a good reason. It has the reputation of being very fast and positive as each session aims at creating another stepping stone towards being better, rather than going back into the past as the traditional problem focused approaches do, where you never know what you meet. This is why Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a wonderful tool.
In 2017 I added another skill to my bow because chronic pain – physical or emotional is close to my heart. Rapid Pain Elimination Therapy is a method that helps to let go of pain messages that are no longer needed because the actual injury has long been healed. NHS trials have been run by the founder of the method in cooperation with a NHS doctors surgery in Chesterfield and were deemed very successful and greatly help reduce the amount of pain management medication the NHS prescribes
I will tailor every session to your personal needs and will combine both methods for a fast outcome where appropriate.
