About HeadFirst Hypnotherapy®

I assist people in regaining control of their lives by retraining their brains to overcome limiting thought patterns, master their emotions, and cultivate resilient behaviours for a brighter and more positive future.. I know… It’s awesome! 🤩

Get in touch to book your FREE 45 Minute Discovery Session where all your questions can be answered. 

In a nutshell, I get you ‘out of your own way’. Because, let’s face it, a lot of us are. 

My approach is based on the latest research from neuroscience and incorporates the very best elements of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines a non-invasive form of ‘talking therapy’ with a gentle trance-like state that puts you in control, replacing negative anxious thoughts, allowing your mind to be open to positive changes. 

It harnesses the principles of neuroplasticity to facilitate positive neural pathway changes, allowing you to reshape your thought patterns, emotions and behaviours towards a desired outcome (feeling better and coping better).

  • Are you often feeling stressed or anxious?
  • Have you lost your confidence, self-esteem and/or motivation?
  • Is fear holding you back?
  • Does life feel really overwhelming right now?
  • Do you feel like you’re stuck in a not very helpful cycle (a funk!)
  • Do you wish you could find a way to cope better?

If you're like 'YESSS' to any of these, then Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you! It's a relatively quick therapy process usually taking between 8-12 sessions (depending on the issues). Simple Phobias can take a shorter time.

I frequently use the analogy that anxiety and debilitating anxiety conditions and symptoms can be likened to facing a threat like a polar bear 🐻‍❄️

Our primitive brain instinctively engages the fight, flight, or freeze response, which is an essential survival mechanism when confronted with genuine threats. However, this automatic response isn't always helpful  and can overreact when dealing with the challenges we encounter in our daily lives, such as work-related stress, relationship difficulties, feeling unworthy etc.

In Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I aim to help you gain insight into why you experience these symptoms, how the mind operates, and how to regain control over these responses. By developing new neural pathways (working in different part of your brain) and working collaboratively towards the positive outcomes you desire, you can learn to manage your difficulties and build a more positive, constructive and resilient path forward. 🚀

Get in touch to book your FREE 45 Minute Discovery Session. You will also find lots more helpful information on my website, including a FAQs section. Or just give me a call with any questions. 🤩
