What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is different from other therapies. It is drug free and there is no physical manipulation.

It is the subconscious mind which can often hinder the success of other forms of psychological work such as counselling or psychotherapy. With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, the client and therapist work together to focus on the changes that the client wants to make in their life.

Beneficial results are often achieved faster than with other therapies because we do not focus on the problems: we focus on the goals that the client wants to achieve. The client will be given an overview of the workings of the mind, helping them to understand how sometimes we can feel like areas of our life are out of our control.

Using the tool of hypnosis, the therapist guides the client into a relaxed state enabling direct access to their subconscious mind. This is where our instinctive behaviour patterns and natural reactions are formed. Using positive suggestion and imagery the therapist can focus on the behaviours that the client wishes to change.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is the bringing together of the conscious and subconscious minds in a trance state. It is a safe, powerful technique creating a deeply relaxed state of the body, mind and emotions. It is also a perfectly natural state that we are often in during our everyday lives i.e. whilst reading a book, watching television, or doing repeated tasks. The therapist guides you into a relaxed trance state by the sound of their voice. It is not sleep.
