What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines the latest methods of Solution Focused Brief Therapy with Clinical Hypnotherapy to create a powerful modern technique that enables positive change quickly and effectively. By focusing on the present and moving forward positively we can achieve major changes and improvements through gaining control of our thoughts, our feelings and our behaviour.

Hypnosis is a powerful technique for affecting change. Through deep relaxation and trance we bring both the conscious mind and sub-conscious mind into balance and focus them on how you want things to be. Working this way can help in the treatment of depression, anxiety and specific phobias such as fear of flying and driving. It also helps increase confidence and can be a very effective tool for performance enhancement.


Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help many conditions including:

  • anxiety
  • stress
  • depression
  • low self-esteem
  • insomnia
  • anger
  • IBS
  • OCD
  • specific phobias (eg. fear of flying, lifts, driving, spiders)
  • PTSD
  • panic attacks
  • weight management
  • stop smoking
  • performance enhancement
  • exam stress


During a session we use guided relaxation and visualisation techniques. Hypnosis is simply a natural state of deep relaxation, where the powerful sub-conscious mind is open to beneficial suggestions. You remain conscious and in control of everything you say and do.

I offer a free initial consultation so that we can discuss your particular situation and how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy might be able to help you. You can then decide if it is the right therapy for you. After the initial consultation, subsequent treatment sessions last for 50 minutes.

“I was 55 when I met Christian for treatment for PTSD, which I had suffered from for most of my life, not discovering what the problem was until I was in my mid 40’s. From my first treatment with Christian my life started to change, I could feel the changes immediately. The work Christian has done with me is fundamental, changing the very basis from which I engage with my life, the world and everyone around me. I no longer live from a place of fear and fright, but from a place of deep connection, trust, joy and peace. I am feeling confident in being just who I am. I cannot tell you completely how this has changed my life.” Lucy F.

“Christian’s treatment had an incredibly powerful and beneficial effect on me. I tried it in the hope that it might help me deal with some old emotions which I felt were consuming energy and making me feel low and tired. His method is practical and outcome focused which I liked. He explained very clearly at the first session (which was free) exactly what the process was and how it worked, and that helped me appreciate what was happening as I went through it over a period of about 8 weeks. It gradually seemed to change how I felt and how I reacted to what was happening in my life. By the end I felt more positive and energetic, less anxious, and significantly happier.” Margaret P.
