Solution Focused Hypnotherapy: Helping to reduce the “Autumn Blues”

Written by Julie Showering

As we start to get ready to go back to work towards the end of the holiday season, and the children are getting their uniforms sorted out, then people’s perceptions of stress may start to increase.

With the start of autumn just a few weeks away, and with the prospect of the nights beginning to draw in, this time of the year can prove itself to be a little daunting.

A possible change in the weather from sunny summery days into a more autumnal outlook can, for some people, also prove to be a little unsettling.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can really help people who may find they need help to manage the change of seasons combined with the return to work.

Julie Showering, a fully insured and qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner, based in Chipping Sodbury, says, “September can be a tough time for some people as they start to try to settle back into a routine of deadlines and meetings.

“Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can really help to reduce stress and promote a calm and relaxed approach to work and life as a whole.”

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective treatment which uses science and psychology to utilise the mind into its most positive state.

Sessions last for an hour and a client may see their practitioner over a number of appointments to gain the most from the therapy itself.

“It really is amazing”, says Julie. “We see people whose ‘stress buckets’ might be overflowing when they initially come to us, and it’s wonderful to see the transformation over a number of appointments as they become noticeably more relaxed in their approach to life.”

Julie gained the Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Diploma (HPD) in 2012 and is a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), which sets out to ensure its members adhere to its high standards and code of conduct.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help improve confidence, aid in sleep, ease anger and anxiety-based issues, help with weight management, and also in focusing someone’s mind on stopping smoking in a single session.
