I am Ros Knowles, a Clinical Hypnotherapist practising Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis, which gently produces enduring results. From the first consultation you will understand more about the way you can control your thinking and your behaviour, and how to approach life in a more positive way. You will feel calmer, more relaxed, and in a good place to make decisions.

If you are not sure if Hypnotherapy can work for you, give me a call or send me an email and we can have a chat.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis and it can help with a number of conditions:





Chronic Fatigue


PTSD and Trauma

Weight Loss

Lack of Motivation

Smoking Cessation


Fear of public speaking

Lack of confidence

and more...

The great thing about Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is that it helps you to create new habits of positive thinking and behaviour.

Initial Consultation

We establish what it is you want help with. I explain how the brain works, and how we can use this knowledge to change our approach to life and problems.

I will give you a free MP3 to listen to every night as you go to sleep, which will help you to relax and begin the process of hypnotherapy. This recording is an important part of hypnotherapy and must be used throughout our work together.

Full Sessions

In full sessions we spend the first half of the session talking about what may have changed, and how you can move on to achieve your preferred future.

The second part of the session is the Trance bit where you lie on the couch and relax. Trance is not mysterious, it is a normal state of relaxation, we go into trance many times a day - when we are driving, walking, running, watching TV, those auto pilot moments when we allow our subconcious to take over.

PTSD and Trauma

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening or distressing events.

PTSD can develop immediately after someone experiences a disturbing event, or it may occur weeks, months or even years later. The sufferer may be the survivor of the event or a witness, someone who heard about it who then imagined the event, or they could be the perpetrator. This disorder can persist for many years if not treated.

Weight loss

I love running this course! As a Hypnotherapist, my mission is to help people take control of their life and their thinking, and this course does just that! This Weight Loss Course is helpful for anyone who struggles to maintain a healthy eating pattern, and to control their weight. It is designed to help people to change unhelpful eating habits to new habits that result in a healthier approach to eating, and a more positive relationship with food.

About Me

I live and practice in Farnham, Surrey.

Hypnotherapy, and the neuroscience behind it has always interested me and I was fortunate enough to train in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with The Clifton Practice, based in Bristol. It is wonderful to be a practitioner and to help people change their lives for the better. It is as positive for me as it is for them, and I have found my clients to be so inspiring as they discover how they can take control of their lives.
