Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy is a research based therapy that combines psychotherapy with hypnosis and uses solution focused and cognitive behavioural techniques. These techniques focus on finding solutions to problems, utilizing your own capabilities, and setting and achieving goals, in order to change your life to how you want it to be.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis can be likened to a state of relaxed, focused awareness, which most people experience every day. This state is experienced when a person becomes deeply relaxed and highly focused, for example, when daydreaming, going for a run or watching a good movie. You will be guided into this relaxed state by listening to the sound of my voice. Most people describe hypnosis as being extremely pleasant and deeply relaxing, giving them a feeling of well-being.
What should I expect?
The Initial Consultation
I offer a 50-minute consultation focuses on what you want to achieve. This also allows me to explain more about Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and the neuroscience of the brain, an understanding of which is pivotal to achieving success. During this time I can also give you a better assessment of how many sessions you are likely to need.
Solution focused hypnotherapy is very much a collaborative process and it is important to understand that change takes effort and commitment. This consultation also gives us both the opportunity to assess if we feel comfortable and have enough rapport to enable us to work together effectively.
This will involve talking about the progress has you have made and what is going well. We will look at any helpful tools or techniques to enable you to achieve your goals and spend time on focusing your thoughts in positive and effective ways. We concentrate on finding solutions to problems and focus on creating and achieving small steps in order to achieve goals. During the session the client in most cases, is guided into a relaxed state of hypnosis or other visualisation techniques are used. Sessions are 55 minutes.
