Derek Fraser Crosson HPD, Dip. Hyp, MNCH (Reg), NLP Prac
I work with individuals, using solution-focused techniques, primarily from the fields of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Gestalt and Problem Solving Therapy.
We will agree your goals together and devise a treatment plan which is specifically tailored to your needs and consistent with your personal values and preferences.
I will explain the hypnotherapy process as we go along in detail, and I encourage you to participate fully in the process and ask questions if there is anything you don’t understand.
I like to offer clients several techniques and coping skills and a toolbox of mindset personalities that they can use outside the therapy setting, and indeed this is encouraged as clients often find that these skills can then be used in all aspects of their everyday lives.
Practising at home in between our therapy sessions can be a key step towards achieving your goal. I will often suggest that you practice or carry out related tasks between the hypnosis sessions in order to build on what you’ve gained during the therapy sessions. This will increase the efficacy of the agreed treatment plan. I also offer one to one Skype therapy sessions.
Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and client and this is how I work in my sessions.
Where there may be physical causes of a condition (e.g. pain, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome), a medical diagnosis is required to confirm that this has been investigated. This will be required before any therapy can commence.
