Is hypnotherapy for me?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy isn't just for those with past trauma. It is forward focused, calm therapy to support everyday life. Most commonly, hypnotherapy treatment supports:


Feeling low, no energy, hopeless and helpless and struggling to interact. If you are finding it hard to get joy and see the positives in life it's time to learn new thought patterns and make positive behavioural changes.


Low confidence, over worrying, can't switch off or relax, irritable, intrusive thoughts. Physical symptoms: palpitations, IBS, brain fog, panic attacks. Replace unhelpful 'coping strategies' and false beliefs and take back control.

Sleep problems

Struggle to fall asleep, wake up in the night - wide awake and find it hard to get back to sleep, or just wake up far too early. It's time to  re-organise your sleep patterns!


Finding it hard to focus, always feel like there is too much to do and it's unachievable or just don't know where to start. If you focus on what you can't or didn't do, its time to change.


What to expect from a first session

An initial free consultation will involve an informal conversation to help highlight areas that you want to work on to be your best self.

Typically this can include life's challenges such as:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • OCD
  • Phobia
  • Trauma
  • Body image
  • Public Speaking

What is 'solution focused' hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused – It is what it says on the tin! I work with you to identify the solutions to your problems which allows you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.

The Hypnotherapy part uses ‘Trance’ a technique that allows you to go into a state of relaxation which helps you to focus on the positive things in life. All the sessions are focused on how to move forwards in a positive and focused way.

How do the sessions work?

Sessions are an hour long and depending on the goal will follow a very similar format. Trance is roughly 25 mins at the end of the session, you will feel very relaxed afterwards but perfectly able to continue with all activities.

Sessions can be face to face in Stamford, Lincolnshire or alternatively online via Zoom.

I see many clients online and it is just as effective and exactly the same content and format as a face to face session. Some clients prefer this for various reasons but mainly the convenience of being in your home.

Why do I need a consultation?

The Initial Consultation is really important as it sets out the goals and lets me know what you want to achieve by the end of the sessions. It is also an opportunity for me to explain a bit more about how the brain works and what to expect from the therapy.

There is the opportunity to discuss any specific questions or concerns and most importantly to make sure you feel at ease and comfortable with me as a therapist. It's extremely important that you find a therapist that you like to work with.

Is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy the same as other hypnotherapy?

The fantastic thing about this type of therapy is that it is a positive talking therapy, there is no need to go over the problem and talk about any of the issues that might be troubling you.

In fact we actively encourage you to focus on the positive things rather than the negative. Using neuroscience and taking the best parts of other therapies such as NLP and CBT, this therapy is extremely effective and doesn’t require as many sessions as some of the other psychotherapy options.

How many sessions will I need?

At the consultation we will discuss the areas you would like to work on. Usually for general anxiety disorders or to achieve behavioural changes we would have between 6-10 sessions. Ideally sessions would be weekly to have the most benefits but these can be flexible.

For specific phobias 4 sessions are required and these can be as close together as needed but ideally over 2-3 weeks.

Smoking is one session that lasts 90-120 mins and is a one off specialist session. If anxiety that causes smoking or concerns around giving up on your mental health we might require a few sessions prior to the smoking cessation session in order to make the transition.

what clients say

Client testimonials

7 sessions with a goal to reduce feelings of overwhelming anxiety.

"This therapy is so powerful as it gives you the tools to take control of your anxiety. We break what can sometimes feel overwhelming and impossible down into actionable and achievable steps where the results are noticeable.

And the sense of achievement is motivation to continue to do more than you thought you would. The benefits aren’t only for the individual in therapy but all relationships will benefit from the positive changes that come from therapy."

- Phoebe

4 sessions with a goal to be able to spend quality time outside without ornithophobia.

"I have learned so much about my brain and how it has processed these episodes of fear. Solution based hypnotherapy has meant that I have been able to pinpoint the moment where this stemmed from and have been able to replace those thoughts with more calming ones.

The sessions I've had have helped me relax and think about the ways I can enjoy life without being so afraid. Emma has massively helped me replace my thoughts with positive ones and I'm so grateful. These new processes have also helped me elsewhere."

- Nicola

7 sessions with the goal of increasing self confidence.

"From the moment I met Emma, she made me feel completely at ease and relaxed and like I could talk about anything.

She’s really taught me how to look at things in a different way to which I have changed my approach to things mainly at work and it has made a huge difference to my confidence and self esteem.

I would 100% recommend Emma, she has massively changed my outlook on life in only a few weeks!"

- Hayley
