I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist based in North Wales and Chester AfSFH DHP HPD MNCH CNHC.
I practise a simple and modern hypnotherapy technique called Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy. This refreshing approach focuses on the future improvements and changes that can happen. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a highly effective cutting-edge combination of positive psychotherapy and relaxing, pleasant hypnosis.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern and well-researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.
Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety and this is achieved very simply. Using a combination of relaxation and visualisation, we allow the client to focus on the positive aspects of their lives. This encourages that all important shift in perspective.
I work with difficult areas of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia and OCD. Weight loss, sports performance and stopping smoking are other areas that can be addressed and can offer rewarding results.
The vital start to the process is the initial consultation, giving the client the time to explore the benefits of the therapy and giving me the chance to explain how I can help. The sessions are conducted professionally, confidentially and in a relaxed environment. A relaxation CD/ Download is given at this stage and this helps with confidence and aids sleeping. It is important that the client listens to this between sessions to cement the therapeutic work.
My background is in teaching and counselling. I have been a teacher for 25 years and have over 8 years counselling experience. I specialise in working with Teenagers and Young People.
I am a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH), the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) and as such am bound by a strict Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
