What We Do?

About Hypnotherapy

Solution-focused hypnotherapy is one of the few therapies that focus solely on the present and the future and not on the past. In order to solve problems, we don’t need to spend too much time analysing why they occurred; we need to look towards a future without them. Solution Focused hypnotherapy focuses on positives which often makes the therapeutic experience much less daunting for a client.

Why choose this route?

Accreditations and Awards

As part of our professional standards, all hypnotherapists working with Paul Milham Hypnotherapy are registered with recognised professional bodies.


Do not worry. The hypnosis techniques that you see on TV or in entertainment are called somnambulism and are not a feature of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Trance is very different… Think of it like a deep daydream and, as with daydreaming, you still retain control. You could not be made to do something that you wouldn’t want to do so I couldn’t make you walk like a chicken, for example! (unless that is the outcome you wanted from the sessions… I haven’t come across that one yet!)

Again, this is not a feature of hypnotherapy. You are quite in control and apart from feeling so relaxed that you may snooze through part of it, you are not in any danger of not waking up or doing irreversible damage.

People will experience it differently. Some will find it deeply, physically relaxing, some will find it a creative and dreamy experience, some will feel quite ‘conscious’ during the session whilst some may slip into a state of light sleep. There is no right or wrong but most agree that it is one of the most deeply relaxing experiences imaginable.

It depends from case to case but most people start feeling benefits immediately. Some people even notice positive change in areas of their life that they weren’t even expecting.

Yes. All data collected from clients is dealt with in accordance with the Data Protection Act. Furthermore, one of the main features of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is that we try not to discuss aspects of your life that put you in a negative place in order to create the optimum amount of change. You don’t need to worry about the therapy being awkward or delving into personal issues you would rather not discuss.

This depends on the individual but as a broad rule, ‘Stop Smoking’ is one session, ‘Fears and Phobias’ is four and all other conditions, generally, from eight to twelve sessions. This will all be explored in your initial consultation.

Paul has literally turned my life around in 16weeks. When I first contacted him I was in a very bad place both mentally and physically. He worked out very quickly what I needed and helped me get to where I needed to be. I had problems with addiction and the work that he done has shown me how to use my energy more efficiently. Thanks again. Ronnie Rackley

I needed Paul’s help more than I realised. I have always had an unhealthy relationship with sweet foods – chocolate and ice cream especially. I kept gaining weight and feeling guilty about my habits. I spent time researching hypnosis, since nothing else seemed to stick. Regardless of how the bad habits started, Paul took the time to help me figure out what I wanted to achieve and how to programme my brain to serve me when I was most stressed. I can happily say that after the first or my five sessions I saw big changes. I stopped grabbing for sweet stuff and I didn’t even miss it. If anything it’s like the sense of craving has disappeared and even though I can eat something sweet, I’ve learnt to have it in moderation, which is more than I could have hoped for. My impulse was to always finish what was in front of me. I also asked him to help me programme fitness into the messaging and I’ve now got a daily exercise habit that is serving me really well. I no longer talk myself out of doing it, I just accept that the work needs to be done and I get it done. I’ve seen my weight dropping consistently each week and I’m really happy and proud of myself, which is unbelievable! I can highly recommend Paul, he is polite, patient and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable at each session and I was able to follow each story. He knows what he is doing and he really has helped me improve my life! He retrained my brain to feel safe and satisfied. Thank you Paul for all of your kindness.

I cannot praise Paul enough. I had one session at the end of November 2021 to give up smoking and I haven’t touched tobacco since! My bank balance and health are so much better off for it.

5 stars isn’t enough, I went to Paul with sleeping problems, this progressed into other aspects to improve on my life, finishing with smoking. Completely changed my life. Seeing Paul was the best therapy I’ve done with the most amazing results. All I wish was that I saw him sooner. Fantastic service, professional and compassionate. So grateful.

I went to Paul to help me with my unhealthy lifestyle which I really needed to change for my health and to regain my self esteem. After 5 rollercoaster sessions that included crying, laughter and really looking at myself I realise it was one of the best decisions of my life. Paul is really easy to talk to and the whole philosophy of looking to the future is perfect. I have stopped all my bad habits like smoking and drinking that were consuming me and I can honestly say that I am at a stage where I wake up and feel really really great, happy and ready to take on life again. My confidence has grown, especially at work and I am living a much fuller life and most importantly looking after myself. I cannot recommend this highly enough if you want to make changes for the better in your life.

This guy is amazing, I’ve smoked for over forty years (heavy smoker) and in just one visit with Paul I have not smoked again. I feel good, I’m just really amazed that I don’t even have any withdrawal symptoms or am I craving a cigarette. Simply amazing

I have seen Paul 4 times now for a phobia of birds I’ve had for as long as I can remember! I can honestly say it is the best thing I’ve ever done! I feel like I’ve got a life now I only ever dreamed about! I have been able to take my young son to the farm and even to feed the ducks! I cannot thank Paul enough for helping me!

Had a no smoking session with Paul he spoke so much sense about cigarette smoking, and i was a bit sceptical about it at first thinking is this going to work, but Paul was lovely and so professional, it definitely does work, haven’t had a cigarette since I saw him, it’s amazing. Thank you so much Paul, for giving me my life back.

I had a car accident which caused my to suffer from anxiety whilst driving. This was compounded by the fact that I was also in a serious car accident 4 years previously. I saw Paul and explained all my symptoms to him and the horrible feeling I got when driving. Paul assured me that he could help and not only that I would not have to relive the details of the car accident again to get help. After 5 sessions my “stress bucket” has been emptied and I can drive without feeling anxious all the time. I highly recommend Paul.

I have seen Paul for 8 sessions now and I cannot believe the change in myself. I have suffered with fits since I was 18 months old, these are inflicted by pain, blood or even medical talk. I couldn’t go for a walk by myself without worrying that if I hurt myself I’d be pass out. Since seeing Paul, I’ve managed to go out for walks, go to the doctors without worry and even put a plaster on a cut that before I would have passed out on. I highly recommend Paul for anything you are having difficulties with as he has changed my life around.
