How I started
In 2010 I trained as a clinical hypnotherapist/solution-focused psychotherapist with the most experienced and forward thinking hypnotherapist in the country at The Clifton Practice in Bristol. Here, I mastered techniques based on the very latest in brain research using solution-focused therapy including the miracle question, neuroscience, scaling and hypnosis.
I am a registered member of the Association of Solution-Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH) which has a strict code of ethics and attend regular supervision and continued professional development to keep up to date with the very latest in brain research and the solution-focused approach. I am also a member of the UK Association of Solution-Focused Practitioners (UKASFP) and an accredited member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Recently I have rejoined the National Council of Hypnotherapy as an accredited member and become a Level 5 Solution-Focused Brief Therapy supervisor for other hypnotherapists. Now in a position to teach others what I have learned along the way, I look forward to more of this in the future.
Over the years, a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise has been gained from endless hours of working with clients, students and other professionals and from attending conferences, professional development courses and workshops in the UK and abroad. All to ensure the best service for those I work with.
I taught solution-focused hypnotherapy as a senior lecturer teaching the gold standard Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) with the Clifton Practice in North Wales and really enjoy the teaching aspect alongside being a therapist too and have qualified with the Level 5 solution-focused supervisors qualification SFBT Sup(Hyp). I hold one to one sessions in SF supervision and SF supervision group sessions online and at all my locations.
Since qualifying in 2010 with the gold standard Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma, (HPD), a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, (DHP), the Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Diploma for hypnotherapists (SFBT) and the Level 5 solution-focused supervisors qualification SFBT Sup(Hyp). I am currently working on the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma which is the latest qualification in our field.
