Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a type of 'talking therapy' that combines the use of psychotherapy with hypnosis. Hypnosis is a very natural state of concentrated focus, encouraged by using guided imagery and relaxation techniques allowing the mind to become open to positive thoughts and suggestions.
As a modern psychotherapeutic approach, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is underpinned by evidenced-based research which clearly demonstrates that it helps clients make significant and positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.
Crucially, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is future orientated meaning that we work on what you want to achieve rather than dwell unduly on whatever issue or problem prompted you to seek help in the first place. This means that therapy sessions take a friendly, proactive and positive approach to managing your issues.
