Katherine Finn answers your questions about Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy
How does it work?
Hypnotherapy is a little like a garden hose … you know the connection is secure, you’ve turned the tap on and there’s nothing wrong with the pipes or water supply but you’re standing at the other end of the hose in your veg patch and … nothing … You track back along the hose and notice a couple of kinks which when straightened out mean the water can flow easily again. Hypnotherapy (alongside NLP which I also incorporate) is the process by which we get rid of any kinks. I believe you have all the skills and strengths you need to find your solutions, my job is to help get you into the best mindset possible so that you can make decisions and move forwards freely towards your preferred future.
What does ‘Solution Focused’ mean?
Instead of dwelling on and analysing any problems, I’ll encourage you to picture yourself without those challenges so that you have clear goals to work towards.
Can you make me do something against my will?
No. This isn’t about you relinquishing control but rather taking back control. I’ll teach you how your brain works, so that you can understand why you’re thinking, feeling and acting the way you currently are and how to create positive changes.
Who needs Hypnotherapy?
Incorporating a positive mindset into your day-to-day life can benefit everyone. My clients range in age from 8 years to mid 80s; it’s never too soon or too late to equip yourself with a toolkit of techniques and coping strategies ready for whatever life throws at you. The brain is more playdough than porcelain, each of us is a work in progress and that wonderful neuroplasticity means there’s always the opportunity for improvement.
How long does it take?
I honestly can’t answer this because it’s very individual but I’ll do my best to help you as quickly as possible and after each session you should feel more upbeat, motivated and ready for the next step. You’ll know when you feel better.
Face-to-face or online?
That’s entirely up to you. Some prefer the convenience and comfort of their own home (just find a quiet space where you won't be disturbed) and others would rather meet me in my garden room.
Please call for a free introductory chat if you have any other questions.
I look forward to hearing from you,
