Empowering you to create positive change.
It’s a blend of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and is a gentle tool to help you cope with life’s challenges. It’s scientifically and clinically proven to be an effective treatment for anxiety, stress and panic attacks, phobias, low mood, IBS, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, OCD and so much more.
This potent blend of therapies enables you to move forward with your life in a calm and relaxed way, alleviates any underlying anxiety and allows your mind to focus on making positive changes.
Personally, I think SFH could be described as a form of therapeutic coaching, as it looks at where you are now and then guides you how to get where you want to be by helping you access your own existing inner resources.
Although it acknowledges your past experiences will influence your present and have possibly led you to where you are today, unlike many other talking therapies, it doesn’t require you to re-live painful events from the past in any great detail if you don’t want to and allows you to focus on your positive and ideal future. And it’s the same for the other therapies that I offer.
Every client is booked in for an Initial Consultation, a 60 – 90 minute session which allows us to get to know each other a little better, lets me to find out in more detail what you are struggling with and is a chance to see if we think we are a good fit to work together. It also gives you the opportunity to find out how the brain works and you to ask any questions.
Once that is done and dusted, you then go on to book your first session and go from there. It is difficult to predict how many sessions you will need as everyone’s circumstances are different, but to give you an idea, fears and phobias usually require 4 sessions, depression or anxiety may require up to 8 sessions and addictions will probably require 10+ sessions. However smoking cessation takes place in a single 2-3 hour session. Find us on Facebook

Hypnosis is a safe and natural state that allows the mind to process information effectively, rather like daydreaming. In fact, we slip into hypnosis several times a day without even realising it, such as when watching TV or driving somewhere familiar and then not remembering the journey.
A hypnotherapist uses hypnosis in a therapeutic setting in order to facilitate positive change but it is not something that is done ‘to you’ – you are actively participating and remain in control at all times. Its primary function is to enable the mind to be more responsive to beneficial suggestion, allowing you to focus on making positive change so you can move forward with your life.
And remember – stage hypnosis – the kind of thing you see on TV – is for entertainment purposes only and is NOT what happens in a hypnotherapy session!
