Hypnotherapy in Bideford
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a form of talking therapy, like counselling, but while counselling is generally sought out by people who have something on their minds that they feel they need to talk about and explore, Hypnotherapy is generally a more solution-focused approach: people come with a specific issues/s that they want to resolve as quickly as possible.
Hypnosis is often thought of as a quirky, off-beat approach, but clinical hypnotherapy is now gaining a well-deserved reputation as a serious, evidence-based, powerful therapeutic intervention that can be applied to almost every issue.
At Sage Hypnotherapy, the first half of each session is spent engaged in talking therapy, with the emphasis on discussing the problem in the language of aspirations e.g. what your preferred future would look like, rather than how bad things are now. Far from swerving over clients’ very real problems, this encourages them to approach the issue/s with a problem-solving mindset rather than a ‘stuck’ one.
The second half hour is when the hypnosis comes into play: utilising trance as useful tool that helps us to access the parts of the mind that engender change. By tapping into this we can often speed the healing process up significantly.
People understandably worry about trying hypnosis for the first time, imagining a shady hypnotist from those TV shows ‘getting into their mind’ and revealing their darkest secrets. In reality, you are completely in control at all times and most experience a deeply relaxing and restful state in which they can sit back and allow their mind to best interpret the hypnotist’s positive suggestions, based on their own description of what they want.
