What’s different about Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

How is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Different?

Solution focused hypnotherapy is different to other types of traditional hypnotherapy. It is a more modern approach combining solution focused brief therapy, elements of NLP, and neuroscience, with hypnosis. Traditional methods were more about the hypnotherapist ‘doing something to you’, but these days, we work with clients in a more collaborative way.  

How does it work?

If you are seeing a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist you will find they all work in the same way as each other. You will be offered an initial consultation. This includes information gathering and an explanation of how the brain works to create anxiety, anger and depression and what we can do about it. Already, with this information, we are giving the client autonomy, to feel more in control. You will be given a relaxation audio to start listening to each night before you start your first session.

You will be asked some open questions during sessions to help you identify your preferred future. Your outcomes can be measured so you can see your progress along the way.  As a result, this is confidence inspiring for the client, and for the new therapist ! Of course, life happens, and we may see dips in progress that are situational. However that’s OK because we can easily get back on track. It’s lasting change that we are aiming for, not just for this week or month, but for years to come.

Who Can it Help?

Solution focused hypnotherapy can help with a whole range of issues. From anxiety and stress, through to mild to moderate depression, phobias, OCD, PTSD, weight management, sports performance, smoking cessation, and much more !

If you could help just one person feel better, wouldn’t that feel great? That’s what our solution focused hypnotherapy graduates are experiencing every day. It is such a positive therapy, that it’s energising for the therapist too.

We won’t miss our Graduates!

Having just waved goodbye to our lovely students who’ve just graduated in November, we know that we won’t miss them too much as we’ll be bumping into them again.  This will either be via Continual Professional Development events or simply because we’ve made friends with them and they’re still emailing us and commenting on our posts on Facebook.  

The Diploma course has been carefully structured to ensure the students have built momentum with their new businesses by the time they qualify.  This means, as they graduate, they move smoothly from being a student to a part-time or full-time therapist depending on what they want as a career.  

Because we’re a very hands-on practical course, our graduates are confident about seeing clients with a very wide range of issues.  They will have also selected a Supervisor to touch base with for advice and guidance when needed.

We’ve been rather impressed with how resourceful our graduates have been in finding a location to practice from.  Some have rented rooms at a therapy centre, one at a GP surgery and another at a spare room in a hair salon.  Luckily, in this profession, we can also work from home if that suits us. Whatever the location, we can be sure they will all provide a professional, caring environment, enhancing their clients’ experience of the therapy.

As we move forward towards our next course, we are smiling at the feedback we’ve received from this last course. Feedback such as:

“I really cannot thank you enough for leading me down this exciting path in life and teaching me the skills to help so many others it is so rewarding.”

Through to “Thank you both for being the most amazing lecturers, your knowledge, your humour and the wonderful way you impart information has made the course thoroughly enjoyable and I think you have been absolutely fantastic. When ever I have asked for guidance you have responded promptly and given expert practical advice which I have valued enormously. I have loved the course and would recommend it to anyone as being of the highest standard”.

 No doubt it’ll seem like theblink of an eye before we’re reading some good feedback on our next course!
