At the Solution Focused Studio we help you take control of your life, focusing on where and who you want to be

Welcome to the Solution Focused Studio. My name is Elaine Way and I am an experienced and accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist, Solution Focused Brief Therapist and owner of the Solution Focused Studio, an established and thriving therapy practice in Farnham, Surrey. 
Specialising in anxiety and anxiety-related issues, I use the most up-to-date and effective techniques of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused  Brief Therapy, Psychotherapy (talking therapy) with elements of CBT to help my clients move forwards and make positive changes in their lives. I am passionate about keeping a scientific understanding of the brain central to the process of change, because if we understand how our brain works then we stand a much better chance of getting unhelpful thoughts or behaviours under control.

People come to see me when they find themselves feeling, thinking or behaving in a way that is unhelpful to them. For others, it is about getting 'their old self back'. If you have something that has become a problem for you, an unhelpful habit, or you are seeking to reduce issues such as anxiety, insomnia or gain control in your life, it is my mission to help you move forward and achieve your goal as effectively and efficiently as possible by working with your thought and behaviour patterns. Online Therapy

Solution Focused Therapy & Hypnotherapy is future-focused rather than 'problem-centred' and immediately starts helping you work towards your preferred future. Unlike other forms of psychotherapy we don't need to dwell on detailed discussions about what caused the problems. Solutions lie in the future, not the past. Events that have happened in the past can't be changed, but our thoughts around them can be altered, helping people to break free from self-limiting thoughts and gain control over their lives.

I am a registered member of the the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) recommended by the Government and NHS/NICE guidelines; an accredited member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy and the UK Association for Solution Focused Practice. Further to my postgraduate studies, I hold a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH), a Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) and have also studied extensively and directly with BRIEF London, the home of Solution Focused Brief Therapy in the UK, Cruse Bereavement Care and as such am fully committed to delivering you a high quality, up-to-date, professional and ethical practice. I am also working towards a postgraduate qualification in Applied Neuroscience.

If it is time to make a change, contact us today and find out how we can help you. My main therapy practice is based in Lower Bourne, Farnham - a comfortable and discreet therapy room in easy reach of many areas in Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire and beyond. It is located a few minutes from central Farnham and there is plenty of parking space at the location.

Following a lovely feedback from a past client who visited for smoking cessation sessions, we look at how we use Solution-Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy at the Studio to help clients quit smoking.... and why we're a little different!
