FAQs

Solution focused hypnotherapy is a psychotherapy which uses the latest findings in neuroscience and uses trance. It is brain based: each session involves explanations of how the brain works, in an interesting and easy to comprehend way.

Solution focused hypnotherapy incorporates elements of cognitive behavioural therapy and neurolinguistic programming. It is a client lead therapy, which operates from a place of seeing the client as the expert in their own life who has all the necessary solutions and resources to make changes.

It is a future orientated, positive approach that focuses on the solutions needed to create your desired future, rather than delving into past problems or current issues. It’s about focusing on how you want things to be, rather than on how you don’t want them to be. It helps you to envisage realistic goals and for you to go on to achieve them through discovering your own inner strength and resources to make changes for the better.

Solution focused hypnotherapy uses trance to help you to access your own inner rehearsal default mode. It may be a brief therapy yet the deep changes can last a life time.

No. A common myth about hypnosis is that is mind control and is used to make one behave foolishly. This myth is inaccurate. Firstly, you have awareness throughout the trance, you will not lose control of your mind and you cannot be controlled anyway. As far as you acting embarrassingly, this myth comes from stage hypnosis and fiction, where participants allow themselves to participate in frivolous suggestions. Hypnotherapy is clinical and based on many decades of research from famous psychologists. Clinical hypnotherapy is not entertainment.

Hypnosis is a state of focused attention, a deeper level of consciousness, when your conscious and unconscious mind are both focusing on the same thing. When you are in this state you still have awareness, it’s like daydreaming. You will be more receptive to the positive suggestions via imagery language patterns and guided mediation, when in this state and this can help with changing negative patterns of thinking. There is so much you can learn while you’re there.

In case you’re still scared to be hypnotized, remember:

We go into a light trance/hypnosis many times a day, when we are absorbed in the moment, blissed out and in a relaxed focused state, whether this is when we are walking, listening to the music, exercising, cooking, meditating, dancing, praying and chanting. I’m

sure you’re familiar with doing things on auto pilot; driving somewhere that you’ve driven so many times, that you are driving without thinking. This is trance, it is a natural every day state of consciousness. In fact, trance is our default mode; when we are daydreaming, we are coming up with solutions and creative ideas.

Yes, you will be fine to drive afterwards. That chilled out yet focused feeling that you feel after yoga or a massage is very similar to how you feel after hypnotherapy. Post hypnotherapy, you will be relaxed yet energised and focused.

 

 

 

You will have no problem waking up; when you are in a trance state, you still have awareness and control and will hear everything I say.

The process starts with reinforcing self-belief.

Being able to control negative thoughts and emotions is the basis of sports psychology. Hypnotherapy can help to remove negative thoughts or beliefs from your subconscious mind, replacing these with feelings of confidence and self-belief.

The relaxation techniques incorporated in hypnosis help to control anxiety and stress management, with sports psychology to help athletes and sports people overcome self-doubt and perform to a better level.
It’s not only professional athletes that can benefit, though. The pressure can be experienced also by amateur sports people who can benefit from sports hypnosis just as much as professionals. Perhaps you have committed yourself to a tough physical challenge and are worried about completing it. Whatever your reason, if you are looking to make a change to your mindset in order to improve your physical performance, hypnotherapy could benefit you. Sports hypnosis can be helpful for coaches and managers, too.

When treating phobias, you will need 4 sessions, with other conditions it varies from person to person. Treatment of depression or anxiety may require approximately 6-12, though could be less or more.
