My name is Estelle Buckley and I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. I trained at the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol, a recognised centre of excellence.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis and uses practical and proven strategies that are designed to reduce anxiety and calm the mind.
This simple, yet powerful approach focuses on the goals you want to achieve, rather than the problems you are facing; looking to the future, not reliving the past.
By learning to recognise our hard-wired responses and use the natural resources within us, we can begin to change how we respond to situations in life. It’s this positive shift in perspective that helps us bring out the best in ourselves.
When I first heard a talk being given by a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, this was a pivotal moment in my life, bringing with it clarity and understanding, and then tremendous optimism.
I offer an initial consultation, free of charge – this allows us to meet and discuss how hypnotherapy can help before you decide to go ahead.
To ask any questions or book an appointment, please feel free to call or email.

How many sessions will I need?
This can vary from person to person, and depends on your individual circumstances, it is also important to understand that being actively engaged in the process increases the opportunity for success. At the initial consultation, we talk about this in more detail and make a plan that works for you. However, for general guidelines, treatment plans are as follows:
For most concerns e.g. anxiety, depression: eight to twelve individual sessions are recommended to make lasting change.
Specific phobias e.g. fear of flying, spiders, dentist, are treated in four individual sessions.
Stop Smoking is treated in one double session.

Initial Consultation Free (50 - 60 mins) Includes free a hypnotherapy CD or MP3

I offer flexible evening appointments from Monday to Friday.
