Introspection Hypnotherapy

Introspection Hypnotherapy
I am a qualified and experienced solution focussed hypnotherapist, with a background in coaching and counselling. I combine psychotherapy techniques with hypnosis and coaching to help people like you achieve balance, purpose, focus and happiness in your life.

About Me

My name is Francis Carter, and I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. My fascination with Psychology began during my A-levels, where I learnt about mental health disorders and the inner workings of the brain. 
In order to further pursue my new dream of becoming a therapist, I then went to university to study Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring. 
here, I gained a deep understanding of Psychodynamic therapy, Person Centred therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy). As a result of comparing hypnotherapy and counselling for my dissertation, I decided that good quality solution focused hypnotherapy results in the most affective, long-lasting changes for clients. 
So, I pursued this at Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT), where I learned about neuroscience and hypnosis, as well as the best solutions to facilitate both a mentally and physically healthy life.
What to Expect

1. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

In short, this type of therapy focuses on solutions and positivity. We do not collude with negatives, as that is counterproductive. We will explore your idea of your positive future, one where you have control over your life and your mental health, and session by session we will work towards that goal, whilst creating and maintaining a positive outlook on life.

2. Initial Consultation

The initial consultation is there to discuss the reasons why you are seeking hypnotherapy. I will gather information regarding your symptoms, experiences. I will then outline the treatment plan for your specific case, followed by exploring the workings of the brain to give you an insight into why you feel the way you do and how that can improve.

3. Following sessions

Each session will be approximately 1 hour long, and it will typically consist of 7 psychotherapeutic techniques (depending on treatment plan explained in the initial consultation) including 2 positive communication techniques, brain revision, scaling, miracle question and last but certainly not least trance/hypnosis.

4. Hypnosis/Trance

Trance is completely normal, in fact, we all experience trance more often than you think: when we’re driving, out for walks, watching TV and so on. This will last around 20 minutes at the end of each session. The trance will leave you feeling relaxed, calm, positive and confident. It also has the added benefit of improving the quality of your sleep each night.

A work/career performance client
The Introspection Hypnotherapy programme genuinely boosts your confidence and gets you thinking more positively, which can lead to very positive outcomes. I was applying to jobs while doing hypnotherapy sessions with Francis and the techniques he showed me to help build confidence and think positively had a significant impact on my interview performance. Thanks to Francis and the Introspection Hypnotherapy programme I have now been accepted to a new role that I didn’t think I would be able to get. I would recommend these sessions to anyone who is applying for jobs or is thinking about a career change.
A client with depression and anxiety
Hypnotherapy has helped me to change my perspective on everyday events and interactions. I have become more aware of how my brain works and how to help myself when I’m feeling low. I have noticed significant improvements in my mood and felt much more able to deal with day to day inconveniences. My sleep routine has also been much better - I have been able to fall asleep faster and stay asleep throughout the night. Francis is a great listener and has been a really supportive and professional therapist.
A work/career performance client
Having never engaged in any form of therapy before, I was sceptical about the affordances that it would bring me at this point in my life. Francis was quick to reveal such affordances. I excelled in an interview, getting myself a great job, increased my presence towards my friends with more awareness of how to tackle tricky social situations, and I’m confident in saying that none of this would have been possible without the sessions that I had. From what I have seen within my sessions, I truly believe that Francis will go on to be a perennial, nationally recognised therapist, and his eagerness to learn and develop within his young career has given me great confidence that I am with a therapist that values his craft, and his patients lifestyle and wellbeing. I’d strongly advise anyone to book in for a session. Thank you Francis, and I look forward to our future sessions together!
A client with anxiety and motivation issues
After months in lockdown and personal stuff going down, it really took a toll on me, I really felt like I was losing myself. I really didn’t know who I was anymore. Had no motivation, always anxious about things, couldn’t think straight and my mood was all over the place. I lost confidence in myself. Then I started seeing Francis and tried out his hypnotherapy. It was one of the best decisions I’ve done. I did not know what to expect but then I was welcomed to very kind and caring, professional environment/sessions. It has helped me cope with my anxieties and change up my perspective on life. I have more self confidence and it has opened my eyes to new ways of thinking. Everyday I wake up motivated and full of energy. It has helped me massively in every aspect of my life and the results are very good, I highly recommend it.
