Solution focused hypnotherapy aims to help people overcome stress or emotional problems by reducing anxiety and calming the mind. It is often referred to as a ‘talking therapy’ and involves looking at a current situation to determine where you want to be and what you would like to change in your life. This will help you to build coping mechanisms and discover new positive solutions to make you happy.
As the name suggests, this branch of hypnotherapy focuses on solutions for the future, rather than analysing problems or discussing painful experiences of the past. This can make a therapy session an extremely soothing and positive experience.
How could solution focused hypnotherapy help me?
During a session, hypnosis is used as a therapeutic tool to help stop the negative downward spiral of anger, anxiety and depression. You will achieve a relaxed state, naturally increasing your levels of Serotonin. This chemical messenger can help you to feel happier, more positive and more refreshed. Additionally, it gives you more control over bodily functions and in particular encourages better sleeping patterns. Amazingly solution focused hypnotherapy can even give you more control over making positive decisions in your life.
I am worried about having hypnosis
The hypnosis you will encounter with me will be completely safe, and always using evidence-based practices. Solution focused hypnotherapists do not hypnotise their clients or ‘magically’ solve the problem as portrayed in the media or on the stage. For hypnotherapy to work it is important that you are completely committed and ready to make your own positive changes to your life and to your mindset.
I would like to reassure you that you will have complete control over your session and your own hypnosis. My role is to teach, help and support you to use hypnosis as a tool to achieve a positive mindset and transform your life.
Provided you are willing to make changes to the way you think, this therapy can be highly effective in relieving the symptoms of anxiety and stress.
