Clare Hancock RGN (Ret), DHP, HPD, SFBT MNCH(Lic) AfSFH (Mem) CNHC Reg
I trained as a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, at the prestigious Clifton Practice for Hypnotherapy in Bristol - one of the leading Schools for Hypnotherapy in the UK.
I work from my lovely comfortable Therapy Room at my home, which is a relaxed and pleasant environment. The Therapy sessions are individually tailored for each client and confidentiality is assured.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) Clinical Hypnotherapy...
SFBT Clinical hypnotherapy, uses the very pleasant relaxing application of Hypnotic techniques, to bring about therapeutic positive change.
This is not an Analytical Therapy (i.e. it does not focus on the Past). It helps people move forward in a very positive and empowering way, in a short period of time. It uses aspects of NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). We look at Solutions, not the problems.
SFBT is completely different to Stage Hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful psychotherapeutic tool used to break the negative cycles of depression, anxiety, anger and associated symptoms, and helps many other problems. It is a widely accepted and popular method of treating and alleviating many different physical and emotional health problems.

I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy and am fully accredited and insured and CRB checked. I am bound by the strict professional code of conduct and ethics of the Profession and I am recognised by the Department of Health as a Qualified Hypnotherapy Practitioner. I am also registered with The CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), and The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH).
