Is now the time for you to take control and find solutions? Then I can help you - I have gained a vast amount of experience since I started seeing clients in 2014 and I am very passionate about the work I do with each of them. I used Solution Focused Hypnotherapy successfully myself (to overcome a needle phobia), and it continues to be a powerful tool in my life generally and for the variety of clients I see.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is all about what you want to achieve in the future, and not about dwelling or digging into your past, because the mind works better when it has positive goals to aim for - understanding that we cannot change the past, but that we can shape and affect our future path in life gives the mind purpose and the techniques used in my sessions help support each client in achieving their own goals in their own way.
And my warm personality and non-judgemental approach, together with a passionate wish to help people, make my sessions informative, reassuring and, above all, enjoyable. I love seeing my clients leave the session beaming and with renewed optimism & determination to succeed!
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with a wide range of issues, whether rooted in the stress of life today, or overcoming a phobia, to many more complex issues related to anxiety or depression. The number of sessions needed very much depends on the individual client and their ability to embrace and seek positive change – and being allowed to do so at their own pace, without pressure - this is discussed in more detail at the Initial Consultation.
The only thing you need for hypnotherapy to be successful is a willingness to change and together we can make it happen, so whether you want to book an Initial Consultation or have a chat first about what Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is all about and see if it could benefit you, feel free to get in touch and I’ll be happy to help.
