What I Do - Hypnotherapy Treatments

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

Based on an understanding of how the brain works, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy utilises specialist techniques to implement positive changes within your life.

The information gained right from the start with the Initial Consultation will give you a new understanding  of yourself and the ability to bring about transformation for your own benefit.  This has a knock on affect and will often spread through all areas of your life.

When working with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I focus on what you would like to achieve rather than on any problems that prompted you to seek change.

This approach concentrates on the present and future and not on the past. 

I will ask you to consider your preferred future, to build a picture up of how you would like to be when things have improved and to describe in detail what would have changed.

This enables your possible solutions to be experienced and visualised and then worked towards manifestation.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy differs from earlier forms of therapy by encouraging you to formulate a positive image of your problem-free future rather than analysing the cause or symptoms of the problem itself. 

In subsequent sessions we will work together in making progress, monitoring, scaling and using hypnosis until the required result is reached.

It is a highly effective and liberating approach.


Hypnosis is the single most powerful tool for breaking through the negative trance states of depression and  anxiety.  This is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing you to focus on the positive aspects of your life which encourages a shift in perspective.

Hypnosis is a relaxing and pleasant experience in which I link through to the your subconscious with the purpose of  bringing  the required changes into effect.


Through working with you, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help treat...

The use of CD's or MP3's are an integral part of therapy.  This continues to focus the mind and produces solutions between sessions. All interventions have a profound affect on the way your problems, whether past, present or future, are both viewed and dealt with.  A major re-evalutation takes place.  They are also second to none as a route to greater self knowledge enabling you to become the person you were always meant to be.

It is advisable, except where Anti-Smoking Therapy is involved, to have an Initial Consultation to discuss the problem and to help decide on the method of treatment.  Subsequently the fee for a normal 60min session is £70 in school hours and £85 for later or weekend appointments.  This is inclusive of back-up CD's/MP3's. 

Occasional reductions are available in extreme circumstances and for multiple bookings.

The Anti-smoking Therapy is done in one session and lasts for about 2hrs, the cost of this is £200.

There is also a Stop Smoking weekend Retreat held regularly at the cost of £900 including accommodation, vegan meals, yoga, acupuncture and healing space.​

Recent research by Insurance Company AXA indicates that stress levels have doubled in 4 years.
According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), stress is one of the most common causes of workplace absence costing the UK economy billions of pounds in lost productivity. 

There is no doubt that illness caused or made worse by stress is on the increase.  Conditions such as anxiety, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), agoraphobia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and migraines are all ways that excess or sustained stress can affect our well-being.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) can help reduce stress with relaxation and hypnosis enabling the client to concentrate on making those positive changes in their life.  SFH tackles these conditions by reducing anxiety and helping clients to regain a sense of perspective; once anxiety is under control many troublesome symptoms are alleviated. 

The therapy encourages positive thinking by helping clients to focus on solutions to problems, rather than dwelling on the problems themselves. Clients usually find their sleep patterns improve and motivation, confidence and self-esteem are all restored.
