Solution Focused Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy
Hello, and welcome to my website. I’m a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist, with a practice in the centre of Bristol (Whiteladies Road). On this website you can find out the advantages of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, as well as the Common Issues it can treat. If you have a specific enquiry, please send me an email using the Contact form, and if you wish to book an appointment please use the Online booking facility or contact me via email.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines talking therapy (Psychotherapy) with clinical Hypnosis (Hypnotherapy). During a session we use a combination of techniques and suggestions based on the latest research in neuroscience and solution focused therapy. This powerful combination helps clients reduce stress and make positive changes in their lives. It uses an approach that is focused on building solutions, rather than dwelling on problems or past issues.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy looks at what the client wants to achieve rather than on the problem that prompted them to seek change.
By making small changes to the way we think, the therapy is highly effective in relieving a wide range of Common Issues. By focusing on solutions we :
- acknowledge where you are currently
- identify where you want to be
- help you to make the necessary changes
Although I acknowledge present problems and past underlying issues, I mainly work with your current resources and vision of how you want your future to be, helping you to look forward and use your own inner strengths to feel calmer, happier, more confident and in control, freeing your mind to allow you to go on to achieve your goals.
If you would like more information please book a non-committal free initial consultation where we discuss hypnotherapy and how the mind works. I look forward to seeing you soon.
I grew up in the seventies in Queensland, Australia, on a cattle farm before my family moved back to Cornwall for 5 years and then to the South-West of France in the early eighties to restore a traditional French farmhouse, surrounded by sunflowers. Within 3 months I was attending the local French Secondary School.
After taking a French degree in Gas, Plumbing, Heating and Electrical installations, I moved to Portugal where I set up my own successful business for 12 years. In 2006 I moved back to England to work for major contractors – Aquatonics (UK) Ltd and Shire Integrated systems, working on such major projects as the London 2012 Olympic Park, the Royal London Hospital and Dyson HQ.
Through out my professional career I always maintained that “calm and collective” appearance on the outside, with many coping mechanisms in place to deal with the pressure. But after an emotional event, the cracks started to appear, moments when I felt completely overwhelmed, stressed and anxious. My mind would just go over and over the same thoughts and always with worst case scenario outcomes.
Professionally I was struggling to concentrate, losing that confidence in myself to take those important decisions, and even not being able to answer the phone. At home I was becoming distant, distracted, short tempered and argumentative. And the worst was that I didn’t know how to put into words how I was feeling inside and why. I started shutting out close friends and family, all consumed with negative thoughts, what if… what if…
About 15 years ago now I was fortunate to be asked to design some graphics and drawings for the Clifton Practise Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) school, founded by my father David Newton a few years earlier, after a very successful career as a hypnotherapist. I read the whole course from cover to cover, understanding the whys to so many symptoms I’d experience over the years.
Being involved from the side-lines with the expansion of the CPHT schools to now 29 across the country, I decided to follow in my father’s footsteps and completed my training at CPHT Bristol with the lovely, all knowledgeable Susan Rodrigues and charismatic Stuart Taylor.
I now assist in CPHT operations and enjoy a successful career helping clients in my own practice.
