Denise Barkham, DHP, HPD, AfSFH (Exec), MNCH, APHP
I practice Solution Focused Brief Therapy which is a powerful combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis.
Each session begins with a period of psychotherapy which is designed to encourage positive thinking, followed by hypnosis which consolidates the positivity.
Psychotherapy is a “talking therapy”. Solution Focused Brief Therapy means that we will not focus on your problems or the reasons why you are feeling a certain way. Instead I will encourage you to think about how you want things to be rather than how you don’t want them to be.
Once you have a clear, realistic idea of your preferred future, your subconscious will help you to find ways to make that future a reality.

I am an Executive Member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and a member of the NCH (National Council of Hypnotherapy) and the APHP (Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy) and am bound by their Codes of Professional Conduct and Ethics. I am fully insured and hold Enhanced DBS clearance and have CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) registration.
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.
