Hypnotherapy has come a long way since the unfair misconceptions derived from its use on entertainment shows and Saturday night TV. Once recognised for its ability to make an unsuspecting relative bark like a dog, it is now more commonly associated with the positive changes it can have on a person’s mental health and well-being.
Karen Dunnet of K.D Hypnotherapy in Skipton, has embarked on a new career in the field, after qualifying with a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and registering as a member on the Hypnotherapy Directory and with the Complimentary Natural Healthcare Council. She offers one-to-one sessions to private clients in addition to her voluntary work with Keighley and Airedale Cancer Support group and Cancer Support Skipton.
Unlike other forms of Hypnotherapy, the type of therapy Karen offers to her clients eliminates the need to delve into the pasts of her patients, thus avoiding the revisiting of unpleasant or traumatic memories. This modern approach aims to inspire changes by focusing on the present and future and often achieves positive results within a short period. Rather than asking the patient to search their past in order to identify the source of their problem, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy will provide them with actionable goals aimed at solving the issue.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is effective when addressing issues such as anxiety, depression, employment stress, low self-confidence, phobias, insomnia, OCD and IBS. It can also help those who are trying to lose weight or stop smoking.
