About me

Thanks for visiting my profile. If you’re feeling anxious, stressed, lacking in confidence, finding it difficult to sleep or perhaps want to feel more motivated to achieve your goals, then I can help.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps you make the changes you need to take control and feel better, so you can move forwards and achieve a better enjoyment of life.

Why Choose Me as your Hypnotherapist?

I’m a professional qualified Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist with a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, (DSFH). I’ve also been awarded the prestigious Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), considered to be the ‘gold standard’ hypnotherapy qualification. I’m passionate about what I do, what could be more rewarding than helping people make the positive changes they need to feel better, happier and more motivated to enjoy life?

What should I expect at my sessions?

The process begins with an initial consultation, together we’ll explore how you’d like hypnotherapy to help you and agree what we aim to achieve. I’ll explain a little about how the mind works helping you understand why you have been feeling the way you have and how you can move forward in a positive way. 

You’ll also receive a free relaxation CD or mp3 to take home which supports the process. There is no hypnosis at the initial consultation, but it is an informative and relaxed session which allows me to design a tailored treatment plan for our subsequent hypnotherapy sessions together. For many clients, it’s the beginning of real focus and positive change.

At subsequent hypnotherapy sessions, we’ll begin by talking about your progress, exploring the positive things that have happened. I'll be encouraging you to reflect in a positive way, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems. We’ll be imagining how life will be when your problem is gone, when you’re feeling more relaxed, confident and moving towards your goals. We’ll then consolidate our discussion using guided relaxation into a state of hypnosis to help bring about the therapeutic change.

How can Solution Focused Hypnotherapy help you?

When you’re ready to make changes in your thinking and behaviour, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a safe and powerful psychotherapeutic tool which can help a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Anxiety & Stress
  • Sleep & Insomnia
  • Depression and Low Mood
  • Confidence & Self Esteem
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Anger Management
  • Addictions and Stop Smoking
  • Weight Management
  • Motivation & Performance
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process and several sessions are often required. If you’re considering hypnotherapy, it’s important to understand that change happens because you want it to happen and when you’re ready and motivated to take steps towards making those changes.

Further information

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a type of ‘talking therapy’, which uses a powerful combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis. It’s a modern psychotherapeutic approach which uses practical, structured, and well-researched strategies to help you make significant, positive changes in a relatively short period of time.

Each therapy session begins with a period of psychotherapy, designed to encourage you to think positively. We also look at how the brain works so you can understand why you feel the way we do and what you can do about it. This is then followed by hypnosis to consolidate that positively.

Rather than dwelling on past problems or the reasons why you are feeling a certain way, we’ll focus on what you want to achieve by encouraging you to think about how you want things to be. Once you have an idea of your realistic goals, your subconscious will help you find ways to make that future a reality.
