Maria’s Story

I’ve always been interested in therapy and, throughout my career, have always worked with people so understanding them has been one of my life’s passions. I experienced Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapy for myself when I had a fear of flying. We didn’t talk about my fear but after 6 sessions, I took my flight to Bangkok with no fear and enjoyed the flights.  I took 6 flights in 10 days as part of my trip.

I’m a qualified Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapist and my clients come to me for many different issues – all of which can be helped by Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapy. Many people don’t want to, can’t or aren’t able to delve into their past and discover what happened to bring them to where they are today and solution-focussed hypnotherapy doesn’t require that because it uses the present and the future only.

The present: What would you like to change?
The future: What would you like to change it to?

The sessions begin with a lesson about the mind – how the subconscious and conscious minds work and how we can disrupt and repair patterns or thought processes that are causing you problems. We look at what it is you’d like to change and how your life will be once that change has been made. Crucially, I track your progress using a simple questionnaire so that together, we can see progress being made or address any dips to re-route us for our next session.

I usually recommend between four-six sessions for my clients so that we can start to make progress together and then maintain it too.
