What happens in a session?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy sessions last 60 mins. The first half of the session is spent engaging in solution focused brief therapy – where we look at where you are now and what you want to achieve. I help you to change unhelpful thinking patterns, to focus on the outcome that you want and discover small achievable goals. Sessions end with hypnosis, where you are guided into a state of focused attention and deep relaxation called trance. Here you will be guided through ideas and suggestions which will help you to achieve the changes you desire. During trance, although you feel as if you ‘have switched off’, your brain is actually highly active – processing information, embedding learning and searching your brain to come up with solutions. In this state, your mind is more responsive to suggestions that are designed to be beneficial to help you change unhelpful thought patterns and behaviours.


How many sessions will I need?

The amount of sessions required will vary from person to person and the issues you need to resolve. Clients decide when they are ready to stop therapy. Generally 8-12 sessions are required. However, smoking cessation is generally one long session of approx 2 hours. Specific phobias such as fear of spiders or flying etc can usually be resolved in approx 3 sessions after an initial consultation.

Smoking cessation is generally one long session of approx 120mins. Please note everyone is different and results vary from person to person – results cannot be guaranteed. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is not a ‘magic wand’ treatment and requires clients to be motivated to change and to engage with the therapy.

What about confidentiality?

All information discussed during our sessions is fully confidential and treated with care. Your information is not shared unless you provide express permission for me to do so.

Am I accredited?

I hold a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and a Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) from the NCH (National Council of Hypnotherapists). I am also fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

I would like to have online sessions but unsure about using online meeting apps.

Don’t worry it is straightforward to use and I can talk you through the process before our sessions so that you feel confident in using it.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Shifting perspectives..changing lives

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a modern yet tried and tested therapy for effectively reducing stress, anxiety, fear and overwhelm, and increasing your ability to cope with whatever life throws at you. Sessions will give you an understanding of how your brain creates anxiety, depression and anger and many other issues such as OCD, panic attacks, fears, phobias, insomnia, IBS, skin complaints and many other issues. If you are unsure if hypnotherapy can help you – do not hesitate to get in contact with me.


Over a course of sessions you can learn how to manage and control your thoughts, calm your flight or fight response, help to change your old patterns of thought and behaviour, gently rewiring your brain – using the brain’s ability to change itself, called neuroplasticity, which helps to create positive long-term changes to thoughts, behaviours and attitudes. Working together I help you to identify small steps to get you working towards your goals and help you live the life you really want. Solution Focused hypnotherapy encourages you to focus on the possible solutions and your preferred future rather than the problems that brought you to therapy in the first place.

Are you ready to unlock your full potential ?
