Your subconscious mind is your superpower and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can unlock your amazing potential for change.
The health of our minds is intrinsically linked to our overall health. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to facilitate relaxation and to change the way that you perceive stress. You can’t eliminate stress, but you can change the way that you respond to it.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy reinforces positive thoughts, beliefs, and leads to positive actions that will support your health, well-being, and almost any goal you wish to achieve.
I believe Hypnotherapy is a form of self-care and it should be viewed in the same way as other wellness and stress reduction practices such as yoga, massage, or meditation.
I am passionate about wellness and want you to pay as much attention to the health of your mind as you do your body.
Often, we spend so much time attending to the needs of others (family, work obligations, etc) we don’t think about ourselves. I believe you need to ditch the guilt, put your own oxygen mask on first and prioritise your well-being.
Change is possible. By accessing the power of the subconscious mind, and focusing on your future, you can make amazing changes in your life. Sessions are structured to be relaxing, enjoyable, and fun. Work with me via telephone, online, or in-person at Vintage Therapies in Altrincham.
Please take a look at my website, drop me an email, or give me a call, I would be delighted to speak to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with the Clifton Practice and am a registered member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, and the General Hypnotherapy Register. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and worked in Occupational Therapy for nearly a decade. I have a professional and light-hearted approach to treatment and though I recognise that I think that I am funnier than I am, I do hope you are smiling at the end of a session.
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.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
I offer a complementary 15 minute phone consultation and subsequent sessions are £60.
