What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is based on the latest research in neuroscience.

It is a blend of:

  • Hypnotherapy
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming

The therapy uses the client’s own natural resources, helping them to overcome difficulties, producing effective and lasting results.

Changes can be simple, subtle and very positive.

About me

Hi, I’m Veronique and I’m a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Clinical Psychotherapist. I trained with the renowned Clifton Practice (CPHT) and award winner Matthew Cahill.

I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and I would love to help you to change your life for the better.

I have had quite a varied career over the years, from working as a PA, to working with people with special needs and in family therapy and as a family support worker to running a ceramics business. However, I have always been interested in psychology and what makes us happy.

I loved my training in ‘Solution Focused Family Therapy’ and working as a counsellor, but still felt something was missing: Something that makes everything a bit lighter and more positive…

When I discovered the combination of ‘solution focused’ and ‘hypnotherapy’, I knew I had found heaven.

And I have not looked back since…

I was initially quite shocked at how little importance we give to what happens in our brain and how its way of coping (or not) with our daily demands and challenges truly affects our body and mind.

Today, neuroscientific research is enormous and constantly updated. The methods Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is based on and the scripts we use are tested in EEG, and therefore guarantee very high-quality work.

Although we are relaxed during trance, our brain works really hard to come up with solutions and is more susceptible to suggestions.

Our brain is an enormous power tool. By learning to understand how it works, we can send you home with a great knowledge allowing you to be back in control of your life.
