Welcome to
Fresh Thinking Hypnotherapy

If you are suffering from anxiety related issues, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help.
I am continuing to offer online and telephone sessions in addition to face to sessions.
Online sessions have proved to be just as effective as an in person session, all from the comfort of your own home.

Are you troubled by anxiety, lack of motivation or stress? Perhaps you are agitated by a continual stream of negative thoughts?
Do you feel that you have lost your way or stuck in what seems to be a never ending cycle of low moods and pressures that leave you feeling overwhelmed or exhausted?

Maybe you suffer from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), fears, phobias, the symptoms of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) or insomnia?
Or do the thoughts of an upcoming test, exam or performance fill you with panic? Perhaps you would like to worry less, feel more confident and focused?

Life can be very difficult at times and often we aren’t aware of the impact this has on our thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
You may wonder what life would be like if you could overcome your difficulties, make positive changes and achieve your goals.

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is based on the latest research and neuroscience. It is a blend of Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The therapy utilises the client’s own natural resources, helping them to overcome difficulties, producing effective and lasting results. Changes can be simple, subtle and very positive.

The therapy does not involve analysing past traumas, negative experiences or painful hurts. Rather it acknowledges where you are at present and what your preferred future looks like. Using a forward looking approach and focusing on solutions, the therapy can be highly effective in helping you achieve your goals.

    Mel from Royton who suffered from depression and anxiety
    August 2015
    " Before my sessions with Cathy, I was just getting by from day to day. I’d had two bereavements several years ago which resulted in me not feeling confident or good about myself, I had low self esteem and life was a struggle. I felt that I had nothing to look forward to. Cathy explained how the mind works and taught me valuable techniques for life. I feel back in control of my life now and more confident! I have walked out of the dark and into the light…thank you Cathy! "

    MF from a Primary School, Rochdale.
    January 2015
    " Cathy delivered a guided relaxation session in the workplace to a small group of participants who had recently experienced situations which they found stressful. Cathy introduced simple meditation techniques allowing the staff members to de stress and give their body and mind the chance to recuperate.

    As a direct result, at the end of the session the participants said they felt refreshed, could think with more clarity and generally felt more positive. "

    " Hi Cathy, I just wanted you to know I think I’m cured :) my flight was fine even when there was turbulence I was calm, it didn’t bother me! Thank you so much for your help! "

What to expect ....

I offer a 45 to 75 min initial consultation during which I will take some general and health related details. This helps to clarify your needs, identify your goals and how I can help and the likely number of sessions required. Then, using a basic diagram, I will explain in simple terms how the brain works, helping you to understand how you are suffering in the way that you are and what we can do about it. The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to ask questions, for me to offer clarification on any aspect of the therapy and to see if we can work together.

Following our discussion, I will give you a complimentary CD which is yours to keep. The CD contains a blend of relaxing music and positive imagery that supports the therapeutic process. Subsequent sessions will last for an hour and include a blend of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy to bring about the changes required.
