Hello, I'm Claire and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist here at BrightStar Hypnotherapy.
Modern life is hard. It is easy for the stresses and strains of life to get on top of us without us even realising, so we carry on until it feels like we are on a never-ending treadmill that we can’t get off.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Hypnotherapy can help with many different issues from general anxiety, stress and depression, to helping with pain management and overcoming phobias.
With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I empower you to take back control of your life, make those positive changes you want to make to get the real you back and to create the future that you want.
In our first session we will talk about your goals and what you want to achieve. I help you to understand how your mind works to give you greater clarity and awareness over your thoughts and behaviours. This understanding helps you to begin to take back control of your thoughts and get to where you want to be.
Over subsequent sessions we will uses a combination of talking therapies (psychotherapy) and hypnotherapy to help your reduce stress, start focusing on the positives and start making changes towards to future you want.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. There will be no 'looking into my eyes' or pocket watch waiving here, just me guiding you into a lovely relaxed trance state. Trance is a perfectly normal and very safe state that we naturally go into ourselves throughout the day when we are concentrating or daydreaming. It is simply a relaxed state of focused concentration where we have access to the conscious and subconscious minds.
There is no need to go back over all old life traumas or for you to feel at all uncomfortable we focus on more positive thoughts and what you want to achieve.
You are in control throughout and you determine your own solutions.
When we are struggling with stress, anxiety or depression we can get stuck in a cycle of negativity, overthinking and worrying. This can impact our confidence, leading us to feel demotivated or withdrawn. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to break this cycle by helping you to relax, focus on the positive aspects of life and open up your mind to a better future.
It can be difficult to achieve our goals if we lack self-confidence or motivation. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help to build up your confidence, improve your motivation and help you to start taking the steps needed to break habits and achieve your goals.
Poor sleep can make us feel exhausted and miserable and if this continues over time it can affect so many aspects of our lives. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps you to relax deeply and reduce stress and anxiety which will help you sleep better, give you more energy and help you feel motivated for the day ahead.
Phobias can be really limiting. They can cause us to avoid situations, lead to panic attacks and can greatly impact our lives. Our 4 session phobia package will help you to take control and conquer your phobia.
If you are ready to stop smoking once and for all, we offer a 2 hour, one-off stop smoking session to empower you to stop smoking completely and for good.
In addition to our 1:2:1 services we also offer 4 week group classes to help with breaking the cycle of thoughts and behaviours that lead to us eating more than we should.
45 minute group classes, combine positive discussion, visualisation and relaxation to relieve stress and anxiety, and help you to relax and re-focus.
We offer regular scheduled, 5-week HypnoBirthing courses on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Individual courses are also available outside these times by arrangement. Visit our HypnoBirthing website for more information.
