About Sarah Valentine Hypnotherapy I practice Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which uses a combination of cutting edge psychotherapy called solution focused brief therapy along with Clinical Hypnotherapy creating a very powerful modern technique that can help people to quickly and effectively transform their lives in a positive way that can result in lasting and effective changes. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on our awareness of the present, which can be a huge relief to people that don’t wish to focus on the problem or talk about the past. Instead, Solution Focused Brief therapy looks to highlight and increase the strengths and resources we already have. In this way, we can move forward positively and we can achieve major changes and improvements through gaining control of our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I was first introduced to hypnotherapy when a friend recognised that I was struggling with self-confidence on the back of my divorce. During my marriage I experienced first hand the full force of anxiety disorder and depression.At first, as with most people, I was sceptical at how it could help me, yet within just a few weeks began to notice changes, not only with my confidence, it in my mood and my ability to focus. I felt a lightness that I hadn’t felt in what seemed like such a long time and was more proactive in my work as well as my personal life. I can hand on heart say that those weeks gave me my life back and some! It was many years later (and with a lot of nagging from a good friend) that I took the plunge and trained as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. That was almost 4 years ago now and i am still constantly amazed at how effective hypnotherapy is at managing what seems like an endless list of conditions as well as the surge of emotion when client begins to see change, it’s one of the best feelings in the world and why I love my job! As a practitioner, I pride myself in my ability to structure sessions to the clients needs, ensuring maximum understanding and benefit from their therapy, In a friendly and professional manner, whilst retaining discretion and complete confidentiality. I was awarded my Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy at the renowned Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) in Bristol. I also hold the nationally accredited Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma – the ‘Gold Standard’ in Hypnotherapy training – awarded through The National Council For Hypnotherapy. I am a member of The National Council for Hypnotherapy along with the Association for Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy and I abide by their code of ethics.
