Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process and it is important to understand that change happens because you want it to and because you are prepared to take the necessary steps to allow it to happen.
The initial consultation is free of charge and is designed to assess what you want to achieve, how hypnotherapy can help you and how many sessions you are likely to need.
Subsequent Hypnotherapy sessions involve much more than Hypnosis. During the first part of each session we'll talk about the progress you have made and I'll be encouraging you to express yourself positively, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems.
I'll help you to imagine your preferred future, a future where you have a more useful perspective on the quality of your life. I'll then guide you into a relaxed state of Hypnosis so that we can consolidate what we have discussed.
Hypnosis is a natural brain wave pattern that we enter into many times a day, for example when we are daydreaming, just before we go to sleep and even when we are watching television and can be described as nothing more than a focus.
Hypnosis can also be described as 'controlled imagination', (Spiegel 2007) a mental state that allows change to take place at a neural level.
The Health Education Authority has said, "Research shows that there is more scientific evidence for Hypnotherapy than any other Complementary Therapy... by using hypnosis, people can perform prodigious feats of will-power and self-healing".
Hypnotherapy is a safe, reliable method of treatment for many problems, has no harmful side effects and is suitable for just about everybody.
