About Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern and well researched techniques. It can help people to rapidly achieve significant, positive changes in their lives.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on the client’s strengths and resources, enabling them to move forward to a more positive future where they are more in control of their thoughts, feelings and actions.

With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy the client and therapist work together to focus on the changes that the client wants to make in their life.  

Beneficial results are often achieved faster than with other therapies because we do not focus on the problems, we focus on the goals that the client wants to achieve.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a potent combining of Solution Focused Therapy, NLP, Ericksonian techniques and Clinical Hypnotherapy.  I also work with NLP, Mindfulness and breathing techniques .

As well as providing a potent tool for dealing with anxiety, depression, sleep problems and other stress related issues, we utilise very effective specific procedures for working with Phobias, Addictions, Eating disorders and Weight Issues and Exam Nerves, etc. which directly address the origins and causes of these and other common problems.

However Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, as its name suggests, is also focused on positive results in the life of you, the client. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy does not involve repeatedly dredging up traumatic experiences from the past or re-analysing the historic causes or present perceptions of problems. Instead it works most effectively by helping you become fully aware of the positive changes you want to make and experience in your life now and the resources you already have available to achieve those goals.  

Hypnotherapy is used to attune and prepare the client’s subconscious mind, clearing it of negative patterns and reducing anxiety to powerfully support this process.

This focus on positive experience in the past, present and future is combined with an empowering understanding of the workings of the mind based on the latest neuro-scientific research, which further assists you to take back conscious control over your life and forge the future of your choice.

It is so effective and quick because it empowers my clients with a real working understanding of the way our minds work and gives them the tools to change the quality of their experiences and direct themselves successfully towards the goals of their choice.

How does Hypnotherapy work?


With Hypnotherapy, we do not set out to repress or manipulate your personality or personal expression. Through hypnotherapy we actually free you to be, and express more fully your true self, free of the negative conditioning which has previously undermined your confidence and freedom of expression.

With Hypnotherapy we can bypass the conscious mind, which otherwise can often hinder the success of counselling or psychotherapy with its analytical or anxious thinking.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is the bringing together of the conscious and subconscious minds in a trance state. It is a safe, powerful technique creating a deeply relaxed state of the body, mind and emotions. It is also a perfectly natural state that we are often in during our everyday lives whilst reading a book, watching television, or doing repeated tasks.

Using the tool of hypnosis the therapist guides the client into a relaxed state enabling direct access to their subconscious mind. This is where our instinctive behaviour patterns and natural reactions are formed. Using positive suggestion and imagery the therapist is able to focus on the behaviours that the client wishes to change.

Is it safe?

No-one can be hypnotised against their will and even when in trance people can still reject any of the suggestions given if they are not appropriate.

About Trance

Trance is a very normal everyday experience. We all experience trance states naturally every day, whenever we drive, watch television or go for a run, for example. It is not necessary to be rendered “unconscious” in order to benefit powerfully from trance states which can be very varied in their depth./
