OCD is an anxiety related condition affecting around 1.2% of the population here in the UK.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps sufferers to manage the symptoms of OCD by focusing, not on the obsession, but on reducing the anxiety which is commanding these behaviours or thought patterns.
In our Initial Consultation, I will give you an understanding of how our brains work and why we think and behave as we do. It’s incredibly powerful to have this understanding and enables you to make the first step towards change and help break the vicious cycle of negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours that help keep anxiety alive.
When we step back from a negative situation and understand why and how our thoughts and feelings influence us, that awareness can be the first step into making positive choices and change.
In subsequent sessions, using a combination of "talking therapy" techniques and hypnosis, I will help you to move further out of this negative mind-set and bring back a more balanced perspective on life, increasing your positivity and reducing your symptoms of anxiety. This will also help you feel calmer and more in control of your thoughts and behaviours.
We will focus on how you want your life to be (and not how you don't) and identify the steps needed to get you there, all of which will be personal and appropriate to you.
If you feel it's time to act, please contact me to make an appointment or simply to have a chat.
Thank you for visiting! Please note that I am now practicing in Stockbridge, having moved from my previous clinic in Chandlers Ford. Google is still showing the old address, but I hope that this will be corrected very soon.
