There are many conditions in which high anxiety levels are symptomatic. Much of my work is centered on helping people to help lower their generalised anxiety levels, in order that they enjoy freedom from their self-limiting thoughts and beliefs. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy however is extremely versatile, amongst other things it can be used to help people;

Therapy for children in Letchworth

Solution-focused hypnotherapy offers very quick results, it can be extremely effective in helping children from around the age of 8 upwards to find relief from their condition. As it is outcome and future-focused there is never any need for a child to discuss the actual problem concerning them. This allows the child to become engaged in their therapy as they are able to imagine and describe their future when the problem no longer exists.

The solution-focused method is in fact so effective, that the NSPCC use it as their approach to improving children’s mental health and wellbeing. Many parents have trusted me to help their child to improve their mental health and wellbeing. I have worked with children of many ages to take control of a wide range of different types of anxiety including; phobias, social anxiety, generalised anxiety, disordered eating and OCD.

You can watch an interview with Matt where we discuss his experience of using solution-focused hypnotherapy to help his daughter to overcome OCD here. If you would like more information on teenage anxiety please visit the highlighted link.

How can hypnotherapy help me change?

Your brain has an amazing ability to change, we call this neuroplasticity. For decades neuroscientists used to think our brains were fixed organs without the capacity to change. We now know this is not true, our brains have the ability to adapt and develop well into our twilight years. By getting you to focus on the positive aspects of your life we build up an area of your brain called the left prefrontal cortex. This is the positive, problem-solving part of your brain. By developing this area of your brain, we can help you to view your life more positively whilst at the same time lowering stress and anxiety levels.

Solution-focused hypnotherapy offers a simple 3 step approach to achieve desired change

 Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in Letchworth

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a safe, modern type of therapy that combines the use of psychotherapy and hypnosis. Psychotherapy refers to a type of talking therapy that is often used to help people explore their thoughts and feelings. We use psychotherapy to help you build up a picture of your ideal future. One where you are free from the conditions that you came to see me for.

We focus all our attention on getting you to be the best version of yourself. To get you to this end destination there is no need for you to recall negative experiences associated with the past. Whilst sometimes in life it can be of benefit to analyse and evaluate situations, in the case of anxiety and related conditions, it can be very counterproductive, creating more anxiety. That also tends to bring other matters to the fore, so time is spent addressing these issues as opposed to the condition that you came to seek help for.


Online hypnotherapy in Letchworth via Zoom

I conduct my therapy sessions via Zoom so I am able to help people from a wide geographical area. However, I find many of my clients come for hypnotherapy in Letchworth and its surrounding areas including; Willian, Radwell, Weston, Clothall and Graveley.

My clients have found working by Zoom really beneficial as it has meant that there is no need for them to make any travel arrangements. It’s just one less thing to worry about.

We are by nature creatures of habit, our brain loves repetition. When things are comfortable our brain feels safe and is able to relax more.

As long as you have a good internet connection, a device connected to it and an area in your house where you won’t be disturbed then your therapy session will be just as effective as one conducted face to face. In fact, it can be more effective as you’re much more likely to be able to enter a trance state quicker when you feel safe and comfortable in a familiar environment.
