I’m Gillian Forrester and I offer a professional, solution focused approach to hypnotherapy. I offer a free 15-minute initial consultation to discuss how hypnotherapy can help you. So please use the contact form or online booking form to organise an initial consultation or session together.

The Solution Focused Hypnotherapy I offer is a  collaborative process and it is important to understand that change happens because you want it to and because you are prepared to take the necessary steps to allow it to happen.

Sessions involve much more than hypnosis. During the first part of each session we’ll talk about the progress you have made, and I’ll be encouraging you to express yourself positively, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems.

I’ll help you to imagine your preferred future, a future where you have a more useful perspective on the quality of your life. I’ll then guide you into a relaxed state of hypnosis so that we can consolidate what we have discussed.

I will review and adjust sessions according to the needs of the client. It is advised that sessions should be attended on a weekly or biweekly basis where possible, to optimise the use of this service.

Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.

In a typical hypnotherapy session the hypnotherapist and client will discuss the intended alterations or therapeutic goals desired. The hypnotherapist will ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for the individual.

Hypnotherapy is found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal. Hypnotherapy is a powerful system which can bring about lasting positive change.
