Iva Hittmair

Solution Focused Hypnotherapist

I qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with Clifton Practice in order to help others to reach their full potential and life balance. Many great and talented people are being held back by their unhealthy beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviour patterns, traumas, low confidence and unnecessary suffering. My extensive training along with my life experience enables me to remove the stumbling blocks out of my clients way to help them utilise their full potential. I gained my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and the Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma which is considered the gold standard in hypnotherapy training and is externally accredited by the National Council for Hypnotherapy.  As a member of the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) I am bound by their codes of conduct. It is always fascinating to observe my client’s individual journeys of transformation and working through their individual issues.

More about me


Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a modern approach that combines the best of the evidence based psychotherapy and a therapeutic hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy is very effective in bringing relief to many problems. The hypnosis  that is used during each session allows the brain to consolidate the desired changes faster than just talking therapy alone. It helps to align and synchronise the conscious and subconscious mind. It is like finding solutions by back door.

Many outcomes from a modern neuroscience and brain research form a cornerstone of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and these are successfully integrated within  client’s therapy goals. It is a powerful combination that is able to deliver a fast, significant and positive changes in the clients’ lives.

The therapeutic process supports clients in their desire to resolve their issues that are causing suffering or creating problems. It focuses at what the client wants to achieve rather than at the problem itself. The focus is on the present and future rather than on the past, so there is no need to revisit past traumas. Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety, and this is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing the client to focus on the positive aspects of their life that is encouraging a shift in perspective.

All of us sometime reach a point when we need to de-stress and try a different solution to our issues.
