Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist

What is hypnosis?
Do you ever catch yourself daydreaming? Perhaps you have been watching a film and then suddenly you realise your mind has wondered somewhere else.  As though you temporarily zoned out of the film? Or perhaps you’ve been driving to work and suddenly you’ve arrived and wonder how you’d even got there. As though you switched onto auto pilot? Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state we go into all of the time without really realising. When we are in a hypnotic state we are relaxed, our attention becomes focused and our peripheral awareness is reduced so our capacity to respond to suggestion is enhanced.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Let me explain metaphorically. So you are an iPhone… you come to me because your storage is full (capacity to deal with stress). Your battery is not charging properly (sleeping problems) and your apps (work, relationships,money etc) are not working. You come to me into the store (practice) for support (therapy). What we do over a relatively small timeframe is do a ‘Factory Reset’…. not only that but we update you to the latest software as well. So you walk out the best version of yourself! Hooray!

I could also explain by suggesting you’re perhaps a piece of tapestry, should you be creative. But you’re worn around the edges and your colour has faded. All we are doing is unstitching the picture and sowing it back up with newer and more sturdy thread. The picture is beautiful, the colours sharper and the stitching is tightly secured.

What is Solution-focussed

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is entirely different from ‘conventional therapy’ which involves placing emphasis on discussing and analysing problems of the past. One of the main models to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is Solution Focused Brief Therapy – clients are encouraged to find positive solutions to issues and focus on taking the necessary steps towards their goals.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy coupled with hypnosis is an incredibly powerful combination. Clients are able to see dramatic improvement in a relatively small timeframe. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a brain-based therapy. We use the latest Neuroscientific research to reach a better understanding of the brain, not only for our benefit but to also educate and empower our clients with this crucial knowledge.
