About Sharon Dyke


Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, Trainer and Clinical Supervisor-Sharon Dyke

I am a senior practitioner, qualified in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy, with over 35 years experience working in adult social care, primarily managing community mental health services and currently, as an adult social care regulator.

I became interested in hypnotherapy 15 years ago whilst working specifically with people who experienced mental health problems, this included trauma. Following much research into the use of positive psychology it became apparent to me that hypnotherapy, (also known as positive mental rehearsal, or guided relaxation), and the use of trance, could be a valuable tool, and when offered as a theraputic intervention, could help many people take back control of their lives. One way we promote this is through positive thinking, positive interaction and positive action.
