Solution-focused hypnotherapy combines solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), with hypnosis. The origin of SFBT can be traced all the way back to the grandfather of modern hypnotherapy, Milton Erikson. He was a rather unorthodox practitioner that believed therapy didn’t have to be a long, drawn-out process (hence why solution-focused therapy is considered ‘brief’), and that with the right support and guidance, most people have the power to come up with their own solutions, in a relatively small amount of sessions. SFBT recognises that everyone who comes for therapy is ultimately looking to feel ‘better’. So in sessions we look more at how solutions can be created, rather than simply analysing the problem (that does not mean that there isn’t space to talk about the problem if that is what is needed first). This is a process of creativity, insight, and self-enquiry. At the Alma Vale Centre, we have a couple of Hypnotherapists available during the week to support you through a wide range of issues.
