"We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking that created them."
Solution focused therapy is a modern approach with intent on positivity and future developments. While we are in therapy we do not get too involved with why the problem developed but more with how we can relieve the symptoms. We do not usually resolve problems by drawing on our deficits and instead we can build through our therapy, on the positive aspects of here and now, enabling for us to think from the intellectual part of our brain, where we generally feel good about things and not the primitive part which is where or emotions/fears originate from. Our intellectual mind helps us to cope better with scenarios and keeps us brave, confident, relaxed, determined and generally helps us to get things right in life. So by learning to think from that part of the brain we can cope better with our problems.
Our brain in an amazing tool which many people do not know how to utilize to its fullest potential. Some of you will be amazed to hear that our brain cannot tell the difference between real and imagined thoughts. This research has shown that rehearsing an event mentally can improve performance alone, without physical practise. However this works both ways! Remembering our mind cannot tell the difference between reality and real then we can negatively forecast the future and create anxieties.
Our understanding of how the brain works, your motivation to help yourself achieve your goals are just a few ways to bring about therapeutic change.
Solution Focused Therapy combines cognitive behavioural therapy with hypnotherapy to achieve trance, much the same used in meditation to enable you and the therapist to concentrate on a single idea or focus. Ever driven a car and not remembered part of the journey? Or become lost in a conversation and wondered what was just said? This is trance! It is very ordinary in many ways and we go into trance by ourselves many times a day. It is very natural and therefore the most easiest thing in the world to contrive.

Missed appointments or appointments which are rescheduled with less than 24 hrs notice are chargeable at the full fee. This is further clarified at our initial meeting & is a minimum requirement to ensure fairness to other clients who may need that appointment.
Exceptions can be made for emergencies in some cases but, I am unable to accommodate employers' changes to working patterns with short notice.
Appointments need to be kept to make the necessary progress with your recovery.
Most sessions are for one hour and any lateness cannot be accommodated by adding additional time to the end of the sessions due to the impact on other clients.
