What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses well researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives within a relatively short period of time. As the name suggests Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a type of treatment that looks for solutions to the crisis rather than the problem; we do not examine the past. My aim is to alter the way we think, by changing our thought patterns and behaviours to new, healthy and positive ones. The way we accomplish this is through natural trance. We go into go into natural trance on average every seven minutes. For example when you walk or drive somewhere and you suddenly become aware that you cannot remember getting to your destination. You may think your brain has switched off however, this far from the truth. Your subconscious mind will be retaining a huge amount of information and processing it adequately. When you are in a natural trance I can access your subconscious mind and give you positive subliminal suggestions. It will help you change the way you think, feel and give you the tools to help you achieve all the goals that you thought were never attainable. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a non-evasive, gentle safe and a very relaxed effective mix of psychotherapy and hypnosis, where you are always in control. It is not like you see on television. You are free to move and talk if you wish, although the majority of clients take this time to relax, as this is their time where they have no worries, anxieties, stresses or anger, nothing at all to preoccupy their mind. It can help to manage with stress, depression, anxiety, weight problems, stopping smoking and much more. It will give you the tools to gain the ability to look forward in life, make the right choices, think, feel and act in a positive way, giving you the crutch to succeed with anything you can put your mind to.
I am a solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy based in the vibrant ocean city of Plymouth. I am married, have three children and a dog. I studied Psychology, Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies at the University of Plymouth where I achieved my degree BSc (Hons). I continued my studies at the renowned Clifton Practice, which is one of the leading schools of hypnotherapy in the United Kingdom. I have attained my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH), and the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) qualification. I decided to make a career in hypnotherapy to help people of all ages who are struggling with life. Coming from a background of service and medical personnel I was getting increasingly concerned about the lack of help for our service and medical workforce. The waiting list on our wonderful NHS is extremely lengthy and using the private sector can be expensive. Thus I made the decision to use my knowledge of psychology to train and become a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I will give a discounted price for those who work or have worked in our forces or NHS*. I am a member of the British Psychology Society (BPS) and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH). I am fully insure
