Vicki Bugden Hypnotherapy (DSFH, HPD)
I offer Solution Focused Hypnotherapy from my therapy room at my home in Hertfordshire. I work with anybody who wants to make a change in their lives, whatever that may be, and achieve their desired goals and ambitions.
'Train your brain' is my mantra, when we understand why we feel the way that we do then that's a huge help in realising what we can achieve and how we can create change in collaboration with the use of hypnosis. I work with you to help you understand why you're suffering in the way you are and what can be done towards create positive change. Hypnotherapy is a natural and highly effective way to manage the stresses and strains of everyday life which manifest themselves in unhelpful symptoms, feelings and behaviours.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy incorporates reasearch about the brain and neuroscience to help you understand why you feel the way you do, and focuses on the positive aspects of your life rather than going over negative events from the past. As stated in the name session will focus on how to solve unwanted behaviours or symptoms and get you focussing on the positive aspects of your life and getting the real you back! During the free initial consultation clients will also receive a free sleep MP3 to help with the process.
If you have any further questions as to whether hypnotherapt will be suitable for you or not please feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to answer any queries.

What to expect from sessions with me
I offer a free initial consultation which is a great opportunity for us to meet each other, and for you to decide if hypnotherapy is suitable for you. In the initial consultation we will discuss what you would like to achieve from the sessions. I then provide an explanation on how the brain works, to help you to understand why it is that you are feeling or suffering in the way that you are, and then what can be done about it. The session is a fantastic opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have and for me to dispel any misconceptions about the process like 'hypnotherapists taking control of your mind'. It's important to remember that I work with you and do not 'treat' you so that together we can help you towards achieving your desired goals and get the real you back!
The number of sessions will depend on the reasons for attending and your commitment to sessions; specific fears/phobias take 4 sessions, stop smoking is a one off 2hour session, general anxiety and stress related symptoms or conditions vary from person to person but on average between 8-12sessions.
All the sessions are confidential and held in a comfortable safe environment.
