    You can be the manager of your own mind

    Learn to manage your thoughts, rather than your thoughts manage you!

Our thinking can change our reality...

You know that nobody controls your mind apart from you!  If you remember this one simple fact, you can move yourself away from the trap of 'I should' or 'I ought to', and move towards 'I can' and 'I will'.

Our reality is shaped by the way we think.  What we think effects our behaviour, how we behave impacts what we experience and these experiences than make up our reality.  So, if we want to change our reality, we have to be able to change some aspects of how we think.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps you think in a different way by offering you a different perspective and invites you to explore alternative options.

Get the Focus Right

First of all we help you identify what it is that you would like to move towards. We are trained to get this vision clear in your mind, so your brain can hold this image as a focus in the forefront of your mind as a reminder of what you are working towards.

Habits and Loops

Our brain can get stuck in old patterns and loops. These are habits. Once we start to identify and question the habits, then you will begin to move the habit from a default pattern of thinking into a choice, where you will be able to choose differently.

The Three P's

It's really quite simple. We need 3 things in our life to keep us feeling calm, happy and balanced:

Positive Thought

Positive Activity

Positive Interaction

Staying on Target

Once we have identified the small action steps that you will be taking, each session will be a motivational drive to keep you aiming towards your planned outcome and these small steps will ensure you reach your ultimate target, or solution.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is the Way Forward

Book your Initial Consultation with Dipti and we can tailor your individual plan for you.

Your Hypnotherapy programme is tailored specifically for you to help you identify the goal or purpose, and supports your progress in a way that is gentle and subtle.

Your action steps become apparent along the way that are achievable to your own suitability and pace.  The actual sessions on the couch are designed to get your mind in a positive trance state, where you learn how to relax at a deep level.  

During this trance-like relaxation, your brain is working at least 70 times as hard for you accessing your own internal resources and abilities within you that will be useful for you to move along the path of your purpose in a measured and disciplined way.  

Your focus will improve as well as your confidence.

Trance is of course a natural state that our brain finds itself in approximately every 6-7 mins.  The brain needs to be in this state often to be able to process events and experiences that are happening around us on every sensory level.  The brain is like a sophisticated computer processor that responds and reacts through what is being coded into it, and then performs the operations and tasks that are necessary to function.

When we go into trance on the hypnotherapy couch, this experience is called REM and is very similar to a deep relaxation, where, your body feels comfortably heavy, but your mind feels comfortably light.  you begin to notice a detachment from the everyday thoughts and it's almost like the drifty, floaty feeling you have just before you wake up in the morning, where you are not quite awake, but not quite asleep.

This state is hugely beneficial, as your brain is at it's optimum resting point, but also at it's optimum productivity.  So, all suggestions that are positive and solution focused will be taken on board and given an action plan by you when you return to your daily tasks.



Dipti puts her own hypnosis skills to the test at the dentist and has ROOT CANAL SURGERY using self-hypnosis with NO ANAESTHETIC or PAIN RELIEF!!   

What happens in the Sessions?

Book your Initial Consultation with Dipti - which lasts approximately an hour and a half.  

In this session, this will be your opportunity to tell us how you would like hypnotherapy to help you, and we will be able to give you a thorough explanation of how the brain works and you will leave the session with a good understanding of how we work, and how hypnotherapy helps and whether you think that it is something that you feel you can benefit from.  

If you decide it is for you, then we can tailor the sessions to suit you, and you will be given an audio - which you will be asked to listen to it every night to support your sessions.  

Usually, we will see you for eight consecutive weeks to build momentum for the changes to start taking place and then we can discuss the route depending on how you feel your progress is developing.  

You are ALWAYS in control.
