Hello, I'm Jackie, from Panacea Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy in Stockport, South Manchester and surrounding areas.
Following a varied career spanning Sixteen years within the Public Sector, I have been able to build upon my existing status as an ILM qualified coach and mentor and Neuro-Linguistic Programming practitioner whilst applying my comprehensive experience and knowledge to offer you the high-quality skillset and understanding you need to realise your goals.
Despite what others may promise hypnotherapy is not a ‘quick fix’, it took you time to develop your particular issue and it will take time to make the long-term changes in thinking and behaviours you need. The good news is that with your determination to make those changes and my support, you will succeed.
When choosing a suitable hypnotherapist, a number of factors should be considered to ensure you make the correct and most informed decision. I have listed these below as a guide to help you make the right choice, with these in mind, I hope to see you soon.
Is your hypnotherapist trained by a 'Gold Standard Hypnotherapy' training school over a full year period rather than just a short weekend introduction course? Is their training up to date, covering the latest advances in modern neuroscience, including how and why we think the way we do and what action can we take to change our thoughts?
Your hypnotherapist should be dedicated and committed to moving you from where you currently are to where you want to be in as short a timeframe as possible. They should be positive, supportive and highly focused to help you reach your goals - just as you yourself are.
Have they undertaken real life supervised case studies throughout their training, ensuring that by the time they qualify they already have 200+ hours of completed direct therapy work with a wide range of clients and issues under their belt? Be aware that some training schools do not let their students work directly with clients until they are qualified.
Will the hypnotherapist you are considering encourage you to develop and grow as an individual, helping you to identify and remain focused on your solutions (instead of your problems) Identifying what you need to implement in your life to improve your wellbeing? A good hypnotherapist will nurture you whilst growing your confidence?
Make sure that your hypnotherapist is prepared to provide quality time to concentrate on and actively listen to you. The environment needs to be a place where you are comfortable, can be open / honest and secure in the knowledge you will be treated with respect and your confidentiality is assured.
A professional hypnotherapist should possess a genuine and demonstrable interest in helping people. Providing support to overcoming difficulties and negative experiences by working directly with those whose lives have been adversely affected. This may involve their childhood, their partner, mental or physical abuse, substance abuse and a wide range of other issues.
Receiving ongoing supervision ensures a high standard of service is provided at all times. Registered members of an overseeing body maintain a professional level of work and can demonstrate a high level of commitment to their own continuous professional development for the benefit of all concerned. Ensure that an enhanced DBS is in place along with professional insurance for their credibility and your peace of mind.
A good hypnotherapist will encourage you to start looking at and viewing the world in a different way. Showing you how to open up your eyes and see the various opportunities available - this process takes time. Honesty about the timescales for your therapy will show they are putting integrity before personal profit.
