What does it feel like?

You go into trance several times a day without being aware of it, such as when you are watching TV, reading, daydreaming or driving your car. When you are on the couch you will be aware of what's going on in the room, you will be in full control, but feel very, very relaxed

How does it work?

The intellectual mind consists of two parts, the conscious part and the subconscious part. We may, on a conscious level, know what we need to do to make things better but we also have to tell our subconscious mind. During trance, we can reach the subconscious mind and change the unwanted information stored in there.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on the solution, on how you want things to be. A solution focused therapist does not dwell on the problem or on the past, preferring instead to focus firmly on the future.


It's important to understand that change happens because you want it to, and because you are prepared to take the necessary steps to allow it to happen.


The initial consultation  is designed to assess what you want to achieve, how hypnotherapy can help you and how many sessions you are likely to need. Subsequent Hypnotherapy sessions involve much more than Hypnosis. During the first part of each session we'll talk about the progress you have made and I'll be encouraging you to be positive and to focus on solutions rather than dwelling on problems whilst at all times being sensitive and empathetic to your feelings.


I'll help you to imagine your preferred future, a future where you have a more useful viewpoint on the quality of your life. I'll then guide you into a relaxed state of Hypnosis so that we can reaffirm what we have discussed.
