Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an enjoyable, relaxing and effective way to make the changes you want in your life.
Its great strength is that it focuses on what you WANT to happen rather than what you don't want; the solution rather than the problem; looking to the future rather than dwelling on the past.
My aim is to help you feel positive and motivated to move forward and get the very best out of life.
Hypnotherapy can help with;
Stress and Anxiety
Symptoms of Depression
Addictions and Breaking Unwanted Habits
Fears, Phobias, Panic Attacks
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Persistent Pain Management
Confidence and Self Esteem
Coping with Loss and Bereavement
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Performance Issues - sports, exams, presentations etc.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis or trance gives you time to really relax and help you move forward and consolidate ideas and decisions. Unlike images portrayed in the media, there is nothing weird about trance - in fact we go in and out of trance quite naturally several times every day. Neuroscience shows that hypnosis helps us to form new neural pathways in our brains and so change unwanted patterns and develop new ones.

What To Expect - Initial Consultation
We will have an initial consultation to meet each other and find out how you want hypnotherapy to help. I will explain how the brain works and what you can do to help yourself feel better. there will be no trance work in this session (with the exception of smoking cessation sessions). I will give you a free relaxation CD which forms an important part of the treatment.
Sessions last up to an hour and combine psychotherapy (talking therapy) to help you set achievable goals for change and some hypnosis. SFH tends to be brief - the number of sessions we will need depends on why you come to therapy.
I trained as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist after experiencing how this therapy helped me to make changes in my own life. I find its positive goal - oriented focus an inspiration and I hope you will too.
I have always worked with people and am passionate about helping people achieve the changes they wish for. After university I trained as a counsellor and have worked for over 30 years in a variety of health and social wellbeing roles, in the NHS and the not for profit sector.
I create a warm, friendly environment within my practice, combining my counselling experience with hypnotherapy.
I trained in the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol and am a member of The Stroud Hypnotherapy Practice, a centre of excellence within The Cotswold Health Centre.
