9 Advantages of Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy 

There are so many wonderful methods for improving well-being, so we asked the question: “What makes Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy a good and worthwhile choice for so many people?

In this article we’re going to get right to the point, because there are so many benefits and advantages to Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy.


1- Versatile

Firstly, hypnotherapy can help with a long list of problems, including anxiety related issues, confidence, insomnia, fears, phobias, stress reduction, chronic pain, self-esteem, public speaking, low moods, management of anger/emotions and much much more. This versatility makes it so beneficial to so many people and it would be wise for people to consider Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy when they may not have thought of it before.

2- Simultaneous improvement

What makes it even more special and gives it a real advantage over some other forms of therapy is that not only is it so versatile but that if a person has multiple problems, a number of them can be tackled at the same time.  For example, a person may improve their sleep problems, their anxiety and their relationship concerns all at the same time. This powerful effect of creating simultaneous improvement across different areas of ones life is great value.

3- No Unwanted Side Effects

One of the best advantages of Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy is that it’s totally natural. Natural means no medication or even herbal tinctures are involved. The Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy approach helps to naturally activate a person’s parasympathetic nervous system to creates rest and restoration and it taps into the body’s natural pharmacy so a person feels the benefits of more feel-good brain hormones (neurotransmitters) in their system.

As no medication is involved, there are non of the unwanted side effects that go with them. This is great news for all those people who (in consultation with their doctor) are trying to move away from medication or reduce their dosage.

4- Complementary Therapy

Because it has only positive effects, hypnotherapy has been used in many hundreds of cases as an adjunct or complementary treatment (with positive results in hospital trials) for accelerated wound healing, bone healing and for cancer care, as well as for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, migraines, insomnia, anxiety, weight-loss, and more studies outside of the hospital setting.

So, another great advantage of Hypnotherapy is that it’s a complementary therapy. As such, Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy does not attempt to be an alternative to the mainstream but rather works as an additional complement for the treatment of many conditions. 

It’s worth mentioning that, unless specifically stated, a hypnotherapist is not a medical professional, so if you have a medical condition it is always advisable to consult your doctor first regarding your condition.

5- Pleasant Process

One of the nicest advantages of Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy is that it’s a pleasant process. The focus of this branch of Hypnotherapy is always positive. The hypnosis itself is through visualisation and relaxation, rather than drawing up or dwelling on unpleasant episodes (which is what some therapies have been doing a lot of for many decades now).

6- Modern therapy

Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy is a modern therapy, based on neuroscience and a scientific understanding of how the brain works. Neuroscience has reviled already that the brain cannot tell the difference between what you’re thinking and what is actually going on. It has also reviled many things about how we perceive reality, what neurotransmitters are responsible for etc. Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy takes on-board these and other discoveries into its therapy methods, to create a modern, powerful and pleasant therapeutic process.

7- An Education

Another very valuable advantage unique to Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy is that it’s not only a therapy but an education. During the process you have the benefit of learning a lot about how the brain works and how to maintain well-being in the most effective, efficient and lasting way based on this knowledge. In short, it teaches you how to be and stay as your best self without long-term support from the therapist.

8- Very Accessible

A little known super advantage of Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy is that it can be, and often is, done online via Zoom, Skype or other video conferencing apps. People sometimes have false ideas about what Hypnotherapy is and what’s possible with it. The fact is that Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy is a neuroscience based branch of psychotherapy, as such the only thing that’s necessary is to see and hear each other. This type of Hypnotherapy doesn’t need physical contact or physical proximity.

This makes Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy a very conveniently accessible service for people. You can be anywhere in the world and still access a Solution-Focused Hypnotherapist at Clarity Flow Hypnotherapy for example. You can even be in the same city as your therapist but choose to have sessions online which saves you time and money.

9- Affordable

This brings us to the last, but not least of the advantages, which is its affordability. There are two factors which make it affordable. The first is that online sessions save not only the client time and resources, but also save them for the therapist and these savings can be passed onto the client. The second factor that makes it affordable is that, unlike some therapies, services and activities people engage in, Hypnotherapy doesn’t drag on indefinitely. It varies on the person and issue presented, but most people are able to resolve their problems within 12-15 sessions and do not need to revisit the therapist except if they choose to do a sort of periodic ‘maintenance’ because they find it enjoyable and empowering, but not out of necessity.

So, as you can see there are many advantages to working with a Clinical Hypnotherapist, in short, it’s natural, complimentary, pleasant, educational, accessible and affordable, so if you’re at a point where you think you could benefit from some support, it’s best to start sooner rather than later.  Procrastination never solved anything, manageable small steps with support along the way often takes you a very long way, so don’t hesitate to book a consultation, it’s currently free at Clarity Flow Hypnotherapy.
