About Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

Have you got changes that you’d like to make to your life? Do you feel that stress and anxiety are stopping you from living your life to the full? Perhaps you’d like to feel more in control of your weight, overcome a phobia or maybe you’d like to stop smoking?
- Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help people suffering from anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and phobias.
- It can also help people to control their weight, stop smoking, and enhance their performance amongst many other things.

​- Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy that combines psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.
- It is based on the latest neuroscience and brain research and has some similarities to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in this respect.
- It also utilises some aspects of Neuro Linguistic Programming, particularly when dealing with phobias and traumas.
- The basis of the Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is that we have all the resources and strengths that we need to make positive changes to our lives and, as the name suggests, we focus on solutions not problems.
- There is no need to delve down into why a problem exists, it can be counterproductive to revisit past, perhaps painful, events. The key is to look forward and to aim for a happy, positive future.
​- We can work together to help you make these changes and shift your focus to a brighter future, help you to achieve your goals.

My training, work experience and any achievement

Who am I?
​- Hello, my name is Karen Dunnet.
- I am a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with a Diploma
in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and a Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma.
- I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, the National Council for Complimentary Medicine and I would love to help you to make improvements to your life.
- I have had quite a varied career over the years, from working in pharmaceutical research and academia to running a cafe and delicatessen.
- However, I have always been interested in psychology and how our brains work and did an Introduction to Counselling Skills Course, thinking that I would retrain as a psychotherapist.
- I then discovered Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and decided that this was the one for me!

Further Information

Why and What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?
- Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses a modern, well researched approach to help people make significant and positive change to their lives relatively quickly.
- The solution focused approach is all about the present and the future, there is no need to delve into the past to try and make sense of the here and now.
- This means that it is a very positive experience, we aim to have lots of fun along the way!

Life can be challenging, sometimes we find it hard to cope and notice that our anxiety levels rise making us irritable and unhappy. High anxiety can affect many aspects of our lives: sleep, self-confidence, weight, aches and pains to name but a few. By recognising that we are suffering, and taking action, we can get back in control of our lives. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to understand what is happening, why you may be suffering and what we can do about it. We work together as a team, with commitment and effort from both you and me.

Mike, , November 14 2017

For as long as I can remember I have been afraid of heights. Started out as an issue I acknowledged with mild anxiety but some 40 years later became a full blown fear which affected my life and filled me with dread. To the point that I had to check what I was doing daily to ensure that I would avoid doing anything involving height. Particularly edges. Especially bridges. I met Karen sometime ago on a counselling course and it was when she posted that she was studying hypnotherapy I contacted her to challenge her to help me get over this.. what was to me an irrational but real fear. I didn’t expect much but was willing to give it a go. The result was astonishing. When I next had an issue to deal with, even though I was aware of my tension, I was able to relax enough to get through the situation which has now perpetuated my confidence. I am now able to function with many situations where in the past I would have moved heaven and earth to avoid. I can wholly recommend this therapy with Karen.

Just want to say a BIG THANK YOU. I felt really positive all the way round 102 miles. I have never felt like that in any event before. Even knowing I could have been 4-5 hours faster has not made me feel negative and annoyed. I’m deffo in a much better place now.
