You have probably noticed how by distracting the mind we can alter the awareness of our discomfort e.g. being engrossed in a TV film and forgetting a headache etc. This happens because we cannot focus on two things at once.

When we first meet it will be for the Initial consultation, I will introduce myself and we will spend some time getting to know each. We will discuss what you want to achieve from therapy. I will note down some general background and medical information.

I will then explain to you how your brain works and how we use hypnosis to help us move forward. These explanations form the foundations for all that we will do as we go forward. You will be introduced to simple tools and techniques that you can start to use straight away to start making really positive steps to achieving your goals. It is amazing how many of my clients find this session enlightening and rewarding.


Subsequent sessions will last for 50 minutes. The first half of the session is spent helping you focus on what you want to achieve. This is called brain based theory and involves understanding how the brain works. It is at this stage you will set a goal to work towards between sessions. This therapy relies upon you fully committed to change. I will do my very busy to facilitate change and give you a helping hand but ultimately your success will depend on your commitment. Change can be difficult for reasons I will explain but with commitment progress will be made and quickly. The second part of the session is conducted with you on the couch. I will put you into hypnosis and use a combination of relaxation and positive suggestion to begin creating and modifying the neural pathways in the brain. This helps you to start moving forward in your life. My clients really look forward to going into trance as it is really enjoyable.

The actual nature and length of treatment will of course depend on you and your circumstances, but the majority of clients experience a significant improvement and are ready to cease therapy after 4 to 6 sessions.*

Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy for pain management can either be used alongside prescribed medication or alone, but if you are considering hypnosis then it is essential that you have been to visit your GP for appropriate advice and medical information around the causes of your pain.
