My name is Alexandra Ashida. I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and the owner and founder of Green Tree Hypnotherapy.

My background is in Occupational Therapy, and I have worked for many years in the NHS in a variety of health specialities. I have a particular interest in the psychological impact of physical injury as well as chronic pain conditions.

During my years in the NHS, I have seen first-hand how emotional and psychological problems can become overwhelming and affect every area of life. My approach to helping people with these difficulties has been transformed since I trained in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I found a therapy technique that absolutely made sense to me, professionally as well as personally. It is a technique that is based on the most up to date neuroscience. It is effective, efficient, safe and can give you back control over your life.

You can read more about how I became a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist in this blog and why I think it is a great alternative to more traditional techniques in this one.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has benefited my life, my health, my work and relationships in so many ways, and it can help you too. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I’m passionate about what I do and always happy to chat about it.

Alex offers her services on Tuesdays in Nottingham and on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays in Derby.

“Hi, I’m Niki. My background is in teaching and I’ve worked educationally with youngsters from 6 months to 6th form students as well as with special needs children with a range of abilities.

Throughout my teaching experience, one thing is completely clear; The link between how we are feeling impacts on how we learn, and the ability we have to make good choices for ourselves.

Dealing with the emotional needs of my students as a priority has been a strong ethos in all my teaching life, and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is by far the most useful tool I have found to help youngsters, and their families achieve good, healthy emotional well-being.”

What is solution focused hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is first, and foremost, evidence-based. It uses the most up-to-date neuroscientific research in every area of its application.

The ‘Solution Focused’ part refers to a therapy that allows people to overcome difficulties and vastly improve their quality of life without dwelling on problems of the past. A Solution Focused Therapist will ask you to think about what life would feel like if you didn’t feel rubbish? What would be different? And what do you need to do to feel better? In this way, we can help our clients to facilitate lasting change, often remarkably quickly.

The ‘hypnotherapy’ bit is actually very ordinary. We all use trance every day. It’s easy to achieve and is an amazingly relaxing and reviving experience (and has absolutely nothing to do with walking around like a chicken!). 

What is solution focused hypnotherapy?

How many appointments do I need?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is designed to be a brief therapy, so you might be surprised just how quickly you see a difference. Length of therapy is entirely led by your individual progress, but to give you an idea:

Simple phobias: Four sessions

Smoking Cessation: One single appointment, lasting up to an hour

Anxiety, Depression: Around eight to twelve sessions.

What to expect.

We always offer an absolutely no fee, no-obligation first appointment. This means you can tell us about yourself, and what you’d like to achieve, and we can explain how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help.

If you decide at that point that hypnotherapy is not for you, that is, of course, absolutely fine. If you decide are ready to make a change, and book further appointments, even better! We’ll provide you with some simple exercises and a relaxation download to listen to at home to get the ball rolling straight away.

Your following sessions will follow a similar pattern each time of talking therapy and trance work until you feel that you have reached a point where our input is no longer required. Our aim is for you to become your own mental health expert. We just provide the tool kit.

What to expect.

Committing to a block of therapy sessions is a cost-effective way to take control of your life. You can book a block of 4 (for specific phobias only) 6, 9 or 12 sessions and will receive a confirmation email. Payments can be made in person by cash or card, or, if you prefer, we can send details for a bank transfer. You can then decide, in consultation with your therapist, suitable dates and times for your therapy sessions. There are no ‘use by’ limits on these packages.
