Penny Leek

Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, Calmer Mind Hypnotherapy

My name is Penny Leek and I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. I decided to practice hypnotherapy after seeing how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helped transform the lives of two family members.


Helping people achieve a calmer mind and returning them to a happy and fulfilling state of mind gives me great pleasure and combining hypnotism and therapy is the most helpful technique to achieve positive results in a calm and relaxing non invasive manner.  I am currently offering sessions online with my clients so please do get in touch for an appointment if you need a little help. 


What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) is a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis allowing clients to make positive changes in a relatively short space of time. SFH is a positive, forward-focused form of hypnotherapy. We do not discuss what has caused the problems in your life, there is no regression and going over old ground, like some therapies. We concentrate on your current situation and your preferred future (where you would like to be with the help of the therapy) to make positive changes in your life.

Achieve a Calmer Mind


Depression is quite a common mental disorder and when we have a low mood
it can be difficult to feel positive again. Hypnotherapy gives you the tools to
think more positively and help you maintain a positive outlook on life. Solution
focused hypnotherapy is now recognised as one of the most successful

Sleep Problems

Losing sleep has an impact on all aspects of your life. Hypnotherapy can
help you sleep better and get the most from your sleep so that you can feel
refreshed and gain back your motivation in life.

Smoking Cessation

Smoking may have appealed at one time but perhaps now you no longer want
smoking in your life. A stopping smoking session will last for 1 ½ - 2 hours and
is a fast and effective way to help you break that habit and become the non-
smoker you always wanted to be.


Many people suffer from stress and anxiety and can find it interfering with
daily life. Stress and anxiety can cause physical as well as emotional symptoms
and can even manifest as panic attacks. Hypnotherapy can help reduce the
symptoms associated with anxiety and stress and, using the most successful
and up to date Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I can help you to feel more
positive and enable you to start enjoying life again.

Weight Loss

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works for weight loss by retraining your brain
and reducing your anxiety allowing you to refocus and create a new
relationship with food. Eating disorders can also be successfully treated, such
as binge eating, bulimia etc.


Phobias are extremely common and can be related to one specific thing such
as spiders, dentists, needles and flying (simple phobias). This type of phobia
can be dealt with in 4 sessions using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. When
the phobia is more complex and has started to take over a person’s life such as
agoraphobia, then this may require 8-10 sessions.
