The challenges we face in our daily lives can be numerous

Often things just keep piling up, resulting in worry, sleepless nights and anxiety

Sometimes we’re not even aware of these symptoms until they give us a cause to finally slow down and be gentle to ourselves

and find the balance within

Silvia Oakes-Wilson
Clinical hypnotherapist

Hello and welcome to my hypnotherapy clinic in Bristol!

I am delighted to see that you are considering making positive changes in your life. Whatever objectives you may have in mind I am here to support you and enable you to realise your full potential. I use a combination of psychotherapy (Solution Focused Brief Therapy) and clinical hypnosis to help you make significant and positive changes and gain control over your life. My concern is not for you to feel just OK. I want you to feel great about yourself and to regain that zest for life, that inner glow that has been missing.

You already have all the tools and the means – within you. I merely facilitate the process.

Whichever symptoms you’d like to work on, we can discuss it at our initial consultation and then make a plan on how best to proceed. All sessions are tailored to your needs and if there are any particulars about your situation that you want to keep private, you are most welcome to do so. In my hypnotherapy sessions past experiences can be left behind as the focus is on the present and the goals you wish to achieve.

Through working closely, hypnotherapy can help you deal with various symptoms – ranging from anxiety and fear to weight management and childbirth, as they all have their root cause in the human psyche. Deep state of hypnosis allows you to reach these causes and to remove the emotional charge associated with them, so they become just a narrative memory.
