about me

I’m Andy Charles HPD, DSFH, AfSFH-Reg.

I’m a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I trained at the CPHT, which is widely considered to be the gold standard in hypnotherapy training, where I gained a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (approximately only 20% of hypnotherapists achieve this level). I am fully insured with an enhanced DBS check which allows me to work with children and young people, am a member of several professional bodies and adhere to strict codes of conduct. I also am committed to updating my knowledge with continual professional development.

I’ve experienced, from a personal perspective, the power and elegance of hypnotherapy and love my work with clients; there really is nothing better than seeing people regain control of their lives!

I live in South Buckinghamshire with my partner, two cats and a dog and can often be found cooking, painting, or walking in the beautiful Chiltern Woods.

frequently asked questions

FAQs

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis or trance describes periods where we experience a shift in our conscious awareness. We go into these states often throughout the day – it’s that day-dreamy feeling we might experience when out walking, listening to music, or even doing the washing up! Trance is natural and safe and not at all the same as stage hypnosis; you are always in control and not unconscious. It’s really relaxing and helps us reflect and consolidate new information.

How many sessions are required?

This of course will vary from person to person depending on the issue and the level of stress or anxiety associated with the issue. I find, with most issues, six to twelve sessions are typical to ensure the positive changes are made in the mind and for new patterns to be created. Phobias are usually successfully treated in three sessions.

What can I expect at an Initial Consultation?

I’ll ask you to complete a consent form and inform you how your data will be utilised and protected. I will discuss the issues for which you are seeking help and spend time finding out how you’d like things to be different. I’ll gather general information from you together with any history or conditions that you feel are relevant.

I’ll discuss how the mind works and what’s happening in your brain and body when you’re experiencing the issue you’d like help with. I’ll inform you how many sessions I think we’ll need to see each other for. The Initial Consultation is a great way for us to get to know each other and for you to ask any questions to help you be informed and comfortable about the process and fully understand how it will help. There is no obligation to continue treatment following the free Initial Consultation; it’s a chance for you to feel totally happy before you make any decisions to continue.

How is SFH different?

Unlike other forms of Hypnotherapy, SFH uses a specific structure which incorporates several aspects of Solution Focused Brief Therapy. And, unlike other therapies, we don’t dig into the past and revisit traumatic events – this is not necessary to formulate plans and hopes for the future. You know what you don’t want to experience, so we focus on what you do want to experience.

How does online therapy work?

It works exactly the same way as a face-to-face session and is just as effective. It’s a convenient way for you to access therapy from the comfort of wherever you happen to be, there isn’t any travelling involved and many clients just find it much easier to fit into their schedules.  All you need is a reliable internet connection, a laptop or device with good sound and camera and some headphones to be fully involved in the process and to block out distractions.
