NEWS FLASH: I’m on the move!

So after a long, and rather stressful few months I am pleased to announce that I am finally on the move! I am upping sticks from my current home, and lovely home clinic in Montpelier to a new home south of the river in Southville. I will still be seeing clients in Bristol and on Skype, and this move actually means that I will be available in more areas of the city. I’ll be working out of Alma Vale Hypnotherapy in Clifton every Thursday. This is particularly exciting, as I have previously worked at Alma Vale and know what a lovely space it is (and very handy for the train station), and many...

The best and worst questions to ask a hypnotherapist

I’ll admit it, for the first few years after I completed my training as a hypnotherapist, I would cringe if anyone asked me what I did for a living. Not because I’m not incredibly proud and happy with my career, but because I would quite often be faced with stupid comments and questions. Now don’t get me wrong, I love talking about my job, I am enthusiastic about helping people and a complete geek when it comes to chatting about how the brain works, I can talk about it for hours… try me! But often when you say you’re a hypnotherapist, some people take it upon themselves to ask the most...

Now available on Skype!

Newsflash! So just to let everyone know I am now available to see clients over Skype! This is very exciting for me as it means I now get to see clients from all over the UK and abroad, and it’s exciting for you, because it now means that you can come and get more empowered, rid yourselves of phobias and anxieties, stop bad habits, or even prepare for a beautiful calm birth with me all from the comfort of your own home! Skype sessions work very similarly to face-to-face sessions, we will still discuss all the same things. The hypnosis works just the same too, as long as you have somewhere...

What is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy?

What is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy?

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is how solution-focused hypnotherapy differs from other therapies. There are many types of hypnotherapy, and most use a similar set of tools to get people into a therapeutic trance and to help their clients make changes in that trance (NLP, reframing, indirect and direct suggestions – to name a few). However, each hypnotherapist is different and there are several sub-categories of hypnotherapy. I practice solution-focused hypnotherapy, which combines solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), with hypnosis. The origin of SFBT can be traced all the...

So what do you do?

When people ask me what I do for a living and I tell them I’m a hypnotherapist they are usually full of questions, once they’ve put their eyebrows back down. So I thought I would start my new blog by answering the two most common questions I am asked. Please feel free to get in touch and ask me any of your own and I will endeavour to answer them in this blog. There are no silly questions in life, even if there are quite often silly answers. So, usually the first things people ask me is does hypnotherapy really work? And secondly, am I like Derren Brown? They also often ask me if I can turn...
