I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapy Supervisor with clinics in Warminster, Melksham and at Roundstone Surgery in Trowbridge. I am also a Senior Lecturer for CPHT Bournemouth where we train Hypnotherapists in the modern way and keep up-to-date with neuroscience and research.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern and well researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time. Working with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I look at what the client wants to achieve rather than on the problem(s) that prompted them to seek change. The approach focuses on the present and future and not on the past.
Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind. When under hypnosis you will feel very relaxed, just like that wonderful feeling when you are tired lying in your bed and you are so overcome with comfort that you wish the moment could last forever.
Research shows that there is more evidence for hypnotherapy than any other complementary therapy by using hypnosis people can perform prodigious feats of willpower and self healing
