Further information

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines solution focused talking therapy with hypnosis, to help people make significant positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.

Before we start our hypnotherapy sessions, I offer a FREE initial consultation. This is so that you can decide if this form of therapy is the right fit for you and if we will be the right fit for each other.

You will also gain an understanding of the workings of the mind, including the reason why we experience anxiety, depression and anger or irritability.

You will learn about the 'stress bucket' and what we can do to keep this empty. This understanding can be vital in order keep us mentally healthy and able to cope with life's ups and downs.

Towards the end of our sessions, I can teach you how to use self-hypnosis, so that you can continue to take control of your subconscious mind. Allowing you to keep working towards your goals and overcome perceived limitations in the future.

I can also help you create an anchor for confidence and calm to help in future situations.
