What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Like all Solution Focused therapies, this form of hypnotherapy is a highly collaborative approach between the therapist and the client focusing on the changes that are most important to you.  In many cases it can be a brief therapy, enabling you to move forward and make positive changes in a short space of time.

These benefits can be achieved quickly as a result of shifting the emphasis of our discussion away from the problem to really focus on the goals that you wish to achieve, using your own strengths and resources.  It is with commitment and working in partnership with me that you will see the best results.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis (or trance) is simply a process that brings together the conscious and subconscious parts of the mind to a state where they are working together in full cooperation.  It is a safe, powerful technique that creates a deeply relaxed state of mind, body and emotions.

In fact, it is a perfectly natural state we reach in our everyday lives when reading a book or watching television.


I have been asked by clients whether I will be getting them to bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken!  The simple answer is, no.  Clinical Hypnotherapy is a totally different experience from Stage Hypnosis.  I use only Clinical Hypnotherapy where you are always in control and cannot be made to carry out suggestions that are inappropriate.

When you see TV shows where people are doing all sorts of weird and wonderful things, much has to happen behind the scenes in order to ensure the show can be successful.  The individuals who take part, generally, really don’t mind making a fool of themselves so they are very open to suggestion.

A vast range of suggestibility tests are carried out on these people before they can play a part.  Only 70% of the population can actually be hypnotised, hence, these shows are set up for success by only including individuals who have the most suitable characteristics.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The number of hypnotherapy or combination therapy sessions required are based on individual circumstances and what you wish to change or achieve.  This will be discussed at your Initial Consultation.  As a rough guide, on average, most people see a positive difference within 4 to 6 sessions but results can be much quicker.  Ultimately, I leave it to my clients to decide when they are in a good place and you will not be encouraged to have any more sessions than you feel you need.

During the Initial Consultation I will give you an overview of how our minds work enabling you to understand how we can sometimes feel out of control of certain areas of our lives.

The most successful outcomes are with clients who are committed to the process of building a constructive and positive future.
