A little about me; my name is Jemma White, and I live in the lovely coastal town of Bangor, Co. Down. I offer Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to both adults and children from Nice Touch Treatment Rooms in Bangor as well as online. Along with one to one sessions I also offer corporate group work. You can find a list of services I offer here. Along with my private practice I am also one of the lecturers of the new CPHT Dublin school.
During my years studying Economics at Aberdeen University I was heavily involved in the Welfare Union and student listening services. My passion to help others never diminished and during my time working as a Trading Analyst in the Utilities sector I joined the Samaritans as a listening volunteer, having also previously trained with Women’s Aid. It was at this point I also decided to complete my Masters (MSc) in Counselling and Therapeutic Communication at the University of Ulster in 2017.
I eventually left the corporate world and decided to complete my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH registered). Although Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is relatively new to Northern Ireland the Solution focused approach to problems by using Psychotherapy along with Hypnosis and including elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) resonated with me. I studied at the Clifton Practice Belfast, which is considered the Gold Standard in Hypnotherapy Training. For this qualification I completed 150 hours of case studies, 120 hours of classroom study and required reading over a period of 10 months. I am now studying for my Advanced Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma which is currently the highest level awarded in Hypnotherapy. I have also gained qualifications as a Mindfulness practitioner.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be beneficial for a range of issues and for a range of individuals. As a therapist I provide a safe space and help facilitate change, but the success of the therapy is down to the client’s input and commitment.
The greatest part of my job is seeing my clients move forward to become their real selves, no longer being inhibited by the issue that brought them to therapy. If you would like to know more please feel free to contact me.
