Susan prefers to utilise a Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) approach and firmly believes that all the resources we need for positive change are to be found within each of us.

See below for a list of some of the techniques which Susan can offer within this context:

Havening Technique (amygdala depotentiation therapy) helps to re-process negative memories of traumatic events which have not been processed effectively. Unprocessed events can contribute to a range of symptoms, such as flashbacks, panic attacks and phobias. Havening also helps to “clear out” negative emotions from past events which may be underlying contributing factors to unwanted habits / addictions.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) helps to reduce anxiety and deal with negative emotions or memories. It involves tapping a series of “pressure points” on the face and body and is a great technique to learn for yourself!

Past Life Regression can help a person to gain insight into issues arising in the here and now. The idea of “past lives” may not fit into the belief system of the client, or the hypnotherapist, but can still offer valuable perspectives into ongoing symptoms.

Inner Child work under hypnosis can help to process childhood trauma which has caused symptoms in the present; healing the inner child through fulfilling unmet needs can help the adult person to release unhelpful thoughts, anxieties and behaviours.

Parts Therapy involves recognising dissociated “parts” of the self which have been “pushed away” and “ignored” at some time in the past, causing a wide variety of symptoms in the present, such as feeling “stuck” or recurring internal conflicts. Parts therapy under hypnosis uses the subconscious mind to bridge the communication gap between the dissociated “part” and the client, helping to resolve unfulfilled needs and thus bringing the part back “home” into the self.
