I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist working in Cheshire and based in Stockport. I have twenty years of supporting children, young people and families with a wide range of issues which has given me significant experience of how to effectively work with people who are needing support to make positive changes in their life.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy differs from other forms of hypnotherapy because the focus is on the positive outcomes you want to achieve and not the past problems that are holding you back. Progress is made at each session through setting positive, manageable, incremental goals that lead to your success. The techniques I use are backed by the latest neuroscience alongside hypnosis to give you lasting results as quickly as possible.
At the initial consultation I will take some brief details before explaining how the brain works and why you feel the way you do in simple terms. You will be free to ask any questions you may have and you will be given a hypnotherapy recording of mine to listen to in-between sessions to reinforce the work being done in the sessions and assist you in relaxing and improving your sleep.
I use Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to help people manage a range of conditions such as anxiety and depression, exam and interview nerves, phobias, weight management, addictions, stopping smoking and many other conditions. If you are committed to making positive changes in your life then Solution Focused Hypnotherapy could work wonders for you.
Experienced in working with children and young people from the age of ten upwards.
