Abby (Hypnotherapist)

Abby Smail

I am a Newcastle based Solution-Focussed Hypnotherapist. I was born and raised in Washington in the UK and currently reside in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. I work with clients entirely online and I am fully qualified and registered as a Hypnotherapy Practitioner. I trained at the Clifton Practice in 2019 built by the founder of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy – David Newton.

Prior to setting up the Havensfield Hypnotherapy Practice I worked for the NHS for 9 Years and I completed an MSc in Health Psychology and a BSc in Psychology at Northumbria University.

During my studies at university my academic focus has been on Eating Disorders, I have particularly focused on Orthorexia, however I have studied and conducted research on all eating disorders. I have worked with clients with a broad range of disordered eating patterns, who have presented physically from extremely underweight to morbidly obese. However, my therapeutic work since training in Hypnotherapy has covered a broad range of issues and is not limited to only those with disordered eating and weight management issues.

I provide confidential, calm, and non-judgemental solutions. My therapy sessions are efficient and educational. I help my clients focus on solutions and achieve the goals they set for themselves, we focus on positive behaviours and thoughts and focus in particular on healthy life changing ones. My clients use my services, not to feel better but to get better.

Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy

Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy is a form of ‘talking therapy’, that mixes the use of psychotherapy with hypnosis. 

Hypnosis or ‘trance’ is a very natural, relaxing state, supported by using guided relaxation, where the mind can unwind and then concentrate on thoughts and suggestions that may be beneficial. 

As a modern psychotherapeutic approach, Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, organised, and well-investigated approaches to help people make important, positive changes in their lives in a rather short time frame. 

Fundamentally, in Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy, therapists examine what the client wants to achieve (the solution) instead of whatever encouraged them to ask for help (the problem). 

Therapists support clients to set their own realistic goals, helping them to break things down into smaller chunks or mini goals, so improvement can be measured and the progress being made is easier to see.
