The type of hypnotherapy we offer is a very powerful combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis.
Each session will begin with a period of Psychotherapy, which is designed to encourage you to think positively and is in itself extremely beneficial. It's effects are enhanced by the application of Hypnosis in the second part of the session, which enables the subconscious mind to make beneficial changes.
What to expect
Some people believe that Hypnotherapy is something that is 'done' to them, that they explain their issue to the therapist who then simply hypnotises their problem away, as if by magic. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a much more collaborative process between you and the therapist. Therefore, 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 your therapist will be encouraging you to express yourself positively, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems. Your goal is to imagine your preferred future - a future where you have a more useful perspective on the quality of your life. You are then guided into a relaxed state of Hypnosis in order to consolidate what has been discussed.
What is Psychotherapy?
There are many different kinds of Psychotherapy, all of which aim to help people overcome stress or emotional problems. Psychotherapy involves talking together to help clients overcome their difficulties. Psychotherapy is often referred to as a 'talking treatment'.
What to expect from Solution Focused Psychotherapy
Solution Focused Psychotherapy is future oriented: The type of Psychotherapy we practise is 'Solution Focused Brief Therapy' and is designed to reduce anxiety and calm the mind. As the name suggests this therapy focuses on solutions for the future and encourages you to think about how you want things to be, rather than focusing on and analysing problems of the past and the reasons why you are feeling in a certain way. Provided you are willing to make changes to the way you think, the therapy can be highly effective in relieving a wide variety of symptoms such as anxiety and stress. Focusing on solutions means we do not dwell on problems. Instead we acknowledge where you are currently, identify where you want to be, and help you to make the necessary changes. Once you have a clear picture of your preferred future, provided it is realistic, through the application of Hypnosis, your subconscious mind will help you find ways to make that future your reality.
Solution Focused Psychotherapy avoids problem talk
The type of Psychotherapy we practise with Hypnosis does not involve analysing painful memories from the past. If you have experienced unpleasant events, we acknowledge they happened and help you get from where you are to where you want to be.
What is Hypnosis like?
Actually, we all experience the Hypnotic state in our everyday lives. Have you ever driven home and not remembered anything about the journey, or been engrossed in a book and not been conscious of time passing? If so, you've been in a state of focused attention, not unlike the feeling of being hypnotised. During Hypnosis you will be guided into a similar state so that beneficial suggestions can be directed towards your subconscious mind.
