You will find Steve’s sessions are caring, practical and efficient. On average and depending on the issues brought forward, many who receive counselling / therapy with Steven, do so for 6- 12 sessions.
I use both direct inductions and Ericksonian Indirect conversational inductions to access the resources you hold at both pre-conscious and unconscious levels.
My counselling services will use and reference the information that emerges from your hypnotic sessions Much of this “subconscious emergent information” is often helpful for you to address and resolve your immediate issues.
Forward focused solutions coaching is my preferred method as it focuses on results and requires you to be accountable for your own success. Sometimes my coaching is informed by and uses “imergent subconscious information”, but most often uses information from your conscious level
Interpretation and Narratives
Whether I am using hypnosis, councelling or coaching the focus is on addressing how you describe your situation and life in general. This “personal narrative” is the script bywhich you live your life, react and respond, pick an choose. Personal narratives and their related interpretations contain both healthy and helpful components as well as limiting unhealthy components. Both are replayed over and over again and have become unquestioned habits and patterns that either serve you well or continue to raise the same old problems.
Narrative therapy helps you to identify the story or stories that guide your life, identify sources for this story then works to sort out the negative from the healthy components. Often your personal narrative is constructed at an unconscious level and has been learned without you even being aware of it. Traces of this learning are stored at both the preconscious and the subconscious levels of your mind and can be reached by using hypnosis. Unhealthy components of the story can be re- written / re- authored and subsequently replaced with more rewarding and helpful components.
