Hypnosis is a relaxed state of focused attention during which your subconscious mind is much more receptive to learning and more open to suggestion. In a therapeutic context, suggestions are designed to help change unhelpful thought patterns. Trance is a very ordinary state; we all experience it many times every day. Have you ever driven somewhere and not remembered part of the journey, or been so engrossed in a film or a book that you’ve not noticed the time passing or other things going on around you? Hypnosis is this sort of state of focused attention. You can often hear everything that’s being said whilst being deeply relaxed. Clients often comment on how relaxed they feel at the end of a session.
Solution focused hypnotherapy is a modern evidence-based therapy combining a form of psychotherapy called Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) with some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques and hypnosis to reduce stress and anxiety and help achieve positive changes quickly through gaining control of our thoughts, our feelings and our behaviour. It is forward looking and focuses on finding solutions rather than trying to uncover or analyse the origin of problems. The techniques I use do not require you to talk about problems or relive traumatic past experiences. If you have experienced distressing events, we acknowledge that they happened and help you move from where you are to where you want to be.
