What is solution focused hypnotherapy?
‘Solution Focused Therapy’ techniques are used along with hypnosis to reduce anxiety and bring about a feeling of calm and relaxation. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on solutions for the future, rather than digging up problems of the past.
If you are willing to make changes to the way you think, then this type of therapy can be extremely effective in relieving the symptoms of anxiety and stress as well as other conditions normally helped by hypnotherapy.
You have my promise that I will:
- acknowledge where you are at the moment.
- help you to identify where you would rather be.
- guide you, as you make the necessary changes to get you there.
Will I have to tell you about my painful past?
You only need to tell me what you want to tell me. Rather than analysing painful memories from the past, I will recognise that unpleasant events have happened. I will then help you to get back to living the life you choose.
What is Hypnosis like?
The hypnotic state is very common, one we all experience every day of our lives. Whenever you become engrossed in a book and lose touch with time passing, then you’ve probably entered a self-induced hypnotic state.
When we are in a state of Hypnosis we are extremely relaxed yet in a state of focused attention. In a hypnotic trance your mind is more responsive to suggestion. These suggestions are designed to help you change unhelpful thought patterns.
Can Hypnotherapy make me do something I don’t want to do?
Contrary to the popular stage or film image, Hypnosis does not involve the therapist taking control of your mind. No one can hypnotise you against your will and get you to do things that you do not want to do. If a suggestion is inappropriate for you, your mind will just ignore it.
