Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is evidence based on the latest research and neuroscience. It is a gentle and effective therapy combining elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Psychotherapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy that utilises the client’s own natural resources to bring about positive and lasting changes.
The therapy is positive and solution focused in its approach to a range of emotional, nervous or psychological problems including anxiety, stress, depression, fears, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorders and unwanted habits. It is also very effective in improving sleep, confidence, motivation and performance. Cathy offers an initial consultation during which she will take a brief health history. This will help to develop an individual treatment plan for you. She will then explain how the brain works in simple, straight forward terms. This often reassures people that they will regain control of their life.
Cathy studied with the prestigious Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training group.

Kay Stafford at Alderley Acupuncture – Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist, BSc (Hons), MBAcC, Lic Acu
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture has been practiced for over 2000 years. Classical text books have been translated and are used with new academic works and research to provide the knowledge for today’s teachings of TCM within our colleges and universities. In China TCM is practiced in hospitals alongside and complimenting Western medicine.
TCM will look at signs and symptoms not necessarily significant to Western medicine. A practitioner will use these signs and symptoms to try and identify an underlying cause. They will use this information along with other characteristics, demeanour, voice, complexion, pulse and tongue etc. to identify patterns of disharmony creating the imbalance. Because of this approach two patients with the same complaint e.g. IBS could have different underlying causes and would receive different point prescriptions. Many complaints benefit from this approach. For a full list of conditions that may be helped with acupuncture please check out the British Acupuncture Council website www.acupuncture.org.uk.
At your consultation Kay will aim to get a full understanding of your main complaint. She will then make a diagnosis and create a treatment plan, this may involve acupuncture needles, cupping, moxa or auricular needles. Acupuncture needles are single use, pre-sterilized and extremely fine.
Kay studied at the Northern College of Acupuncture, York.
