Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis or hypnotic-trance is a totally natural (& much needed) state for your mind & body. When we are in this state we move into our 'default healing mode'. This relaxed physical and mental state has been utilised by mankind for hundreds of thousands of years as a way of coping with this world of ours. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has helped people the world over cope with specific issues, change unwanted habits, overcome addictions, fears and phobias. To deal with trauma or loss, cope with chronic pain or illness, as well as to cope with unwanted symptoms, behaviours, emotions or thoughts.

"We don't need to visit the problems of the past to create a brighter future but we do need an understanding of how these things may have occurred in order to understand what small steps we can take to move forwards"

How It Works

Neuro-Science has revealed to us how the brain functions. This research gives us an understanding of how we are affected by our thoughts and emotions, what we do with stress, anxiety and all those negative thoughts. Solution Focused Hypnotherapists use this understanding to help people take control of their thoughts so they can do the things they want to do.

Why It Works

When we are in control of our thoughts & emotions we feel confident, we feel great and we can achieve the most amazing things. Positive thinking & positive forecasting help us create positive activity which leads us to achieving what we want to in life, achieving the happiness we want for ourselves. Positive thinking allows us to remove feelings of fear and danger so we can move forwards and enjoy our lives.

How Will I Know Its Working?

We monitor your journey weekly using a system specifically designed for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists. We are able to show you the progress you are making thereby ensure you achieve the changes you want. The pace of you journey is decided by you and you will be in control of all your goals.

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of relaxed focused attention (a bit like having a controlled dream). In this relaxed mental state your mind is open to positive change and you will be able re-evaluate your thoughts and behaviours in order to create positive change. Technically we gain access to the conscious, subconscious and primitive minds (the Primitive Mind opperates our Fight, Flight, Freeze / Self-defence system).

What You Say About Us

A small collection of nice words we received from our happy clients over the last year...

  • Testimonial from a person struggling with retirement


    After being made redundant from the NHS after 53 years I had a routine visit to my GP who surprisingly diagnosed depression and feelings of loss and although I knew I felt down was unaware of how much my perceived lack of role had affected me. My GP wanted to refer me for counselling and gave me an appointment for this.

    However  I was told about motivational hypnotherapy and the benefits of positive thinking and so I did some research and found a practitioner. (The Milton Practice)

    After 2/3 sessions I found I was sleeping better, and experiencing a sense of calm and feelings of positivity.
    I was no longer feeling negative about the future and could successfully address other issues such as weight gain and insomnia that had been upsetting me.
    Richard explained the process of positive thinking and gave the researched evidence for this in a calm and professional manner.
    Thank you Richard for your expert help to enable me to get back on track and for facilitating some Skype sessions to keep up the momentum.


  • A testimonial from an O.C.D. sufferer:

    I decided to visit Richard after suffering from anxiety and OCD on and off for over 10 years. In the first session he gave me a thorough, yet easy to understand explanation of the neuro science behind how the brain works and the likely reasons behind the thoughts and feelings I was experiencing. It really resonated with me and that knowledge alone significantly aleviated my anxiety and left me feeling so much more reassured and confident that with some more of Richards help I could make the improvements I needed to get back to my normal self. In just a few more sessions of hypnotherapy and implementing Richards advice I was able to make consistent progress towards a much happier and healthier state of mind. Richard has a very genuine, caring and positive attitude in the approach to his work and I will be forever grateful for his help in my time of need. I would highly reccomend him to anyone that seeks professional help of this kind

  • Testimonial relating to a PTSD Sufferer:

    As a person who have suffered multiple traumas both as a child and as a young adult I have always seen myself as broken in some way. Many of my experiences were hidden from me, in that I had very few memories, but manifested in my life as physical and psychological pain and I was diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome). From what I had read and from what my doctors told me I had had to come to terms with the fact that this was something incredibly difficult to treat and recover from, and that it probably was something that I would have to live with for the rest of my life. Prior to starting the hypnotherapy I had suffered from sleepdeprivation for many years, but had started suffering from nightmares, anxiety-attacks and was diagnosed with severe depression. It is an understatement that Solution focused hypnotherapy saved my life. Eventhough it sounds dramatic, it is the truth. After three months of weekly sessions my sleep-pattern is now back to normal, meaning I enjoy full night sleep and rarely suffer from nightmares. I have learned to control my anxiety and I have also gained the confidence to unearth hidden memories. The biggest change that the hypnotherapy has accomplished is that I now look forward to living my life, rather than just surviving it, and that is the greatest gift of all!
    I no longer regard myself as broken, instead I have mended myself and become something amazing and beautiful!"

    Thank you so much Richard for your time and your skills which have given me a new kind of life! A better life!
    I will always be grateful to you! 


  • Testimonial from a teenager with anxiety:

    I am starting this new year with a completely different outlook than the one I had 12 months ago and that is thanks to the help you provided me in restoring my ability to say no to my anxiety! Whilst there are still things I struggle with, it's a lot easier for me to see a way out of the horrible hole that is anxiety and that makes all the difference. It is also so reassuring knowing whenever I need to I can message you and arrange another session.
    Thank you so much for everything you did for me at the start of this year, I cannot express how much I (and my mum and dad) appreciated it.
