Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis - What is it?
Perhaps it’s easier to start with what hypnosis is not, as many people come with preconceived ideas and fears, having seen stage hypnotists getting people to do odd things for the entertainment of an audience. Well, it’s not like that at all.  Hypnosis is the process of guiding a person into a very focused state of altered consciousness, and to then talk to their subconscious mind.  That’s the part of the mind that’s thousands of times more powerful than the conscious mind, and it’s the same part of the mind which harbours the anxieties and addictions and fears and behavioural habits which we seek to change or remove.

Hypnotherapy - What’s that?
It’s the process whereby a person in that trance state can be guided through imaginative ideas, stories, metaphors and suggestions which will help them change that unwanted behaviour, or to overcome the fear or phobia which affects their health, their life and their happiness.  It’s easy and enjoyable, and it’s immensely successful in the changes which can be brought about, quickly and painlessly.

Solution Focused - What’s that about?
There is a long list of ailments, behaviour patterns, problems, phobias, fears and anxieties which have been overcome through the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.  I’m a proponent of solution focused therapy, which means we do not need to talk about your problem for hours and hours in order to get to the root of it.  Rather, we acknowledge the problem and ascertain your goals.  And we carefully and compassionately find ways to make you feel better, quickly and effectively, focusing on the solution, not the problem.

How long would you like to spend in the dark, discussing the darkness and how it feels to be in such a dark place?
When shall we start looking for the light?
