As we head towards a darker, colder, and wetter Autumn, it can be a time of year when dull aches and niggles can bring our mood down a notch or two.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) may be able to help people experiencing certain types of discomfort or chronic pain. Fully qualified and insured SFH practitioner Sally Potter, who is based in Ivybridge, Devon, explains how the therapy can help.
“When we experience pain, it can be a real drag and things we normally take in our stride can become overwhelming for us”, says Sally
“Our ability to cope diminishes as our stress levels rise and our focus on the pain itself may increase.
“Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is designed to reduce our stress levels to help us focus on the aspects of our lives that we enjoy and, in turn, increase our ability to cope with the discomfort, which we may be experiencing.
“In short, the brain produces its own natural feel good chemical, serotonin, which helps us to cope with life, and it can also help us when we are dealing with discomfort.
“The therapy aims to increase serotonin production by focusing on the positive areas of our lives from positive thinking to positive interaction and positive action.
“By focusing on these three key areas, we see that people’s moods can lift, which, in turn can help ease discomfort for some people. I provide a full, comprehensive, free initial consultation, which explains how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works in the management of some types of physical discomfort.
“If you are concerned about a physical condition, it is important to remember to consult your doctor.”
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also ease stress, aid in weight management, help with stopping smoking, improve sleep, and allow you to feel calmer and better able to cope with daily life.
Sally is a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which insists on the highest standards of practice among its members.
Members are expected to be fully qualified, insured, and attend regular supervision sessions and engage in their own Career Professional Development portfolio to ensure best practice.
