    Do you want to be more motivated?

    Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by helping you identify your goal or desire, then gets you moving towards that goal in an incremental way.

    Tell me more...

Just get on with it!

You tell us your goal, or your plan and as we understand how the brain chemistry works, we help you identify your action steps and move towards the goal you have set.

Hypnotherapy helps you get into the resourceful place in your mind to be able to 'just get on with it'.

Feeling Overwhelmed?

When your brain is not in its optimum state of clarity and resourcefulness, you may feel like you have too much to do, in too little time.  Hypnotherapy will help you identify and plan your goals and take the necessary steps forward, in bite size chunks.

Putting things off?

Procrastination is an indicator that your enthusiasm and motivation levels could do with a bit of a boost.  The brain releases a chemical called Dopamine when it's in the 'restful' trance, which helps with motivating us and getting things done.

Performance Enhancement?

Do you want to perform better?  Beat a record?  Win a title?  Train for a triathalon?  Improve your game of golf?  Whatever it is, we use a technique called an inner rehearsal, where the brain becomes familiar with the goal and knows how to move towards it.

Keeping on Track

Hypnotherapy sessions are very much tailored for you and your individual goal or purpose.  We, as Solution Focused Hypnotherapists know how to help you stay focused and keep on the right track that moves you forward with the goal you have set for yourself.

How Hypnotherapy Works!

When you book your Initial Consultation Online, Dipti will tailor your Hypnotherapy programme 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 much 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.

What happens in the sessions?

You will have an Initial Consultation online, 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.
