Appointments - What can I expect?

At our first consultation, I’ll explain how the brain works in relation to what you’re feeling and experiencing, and how hypnotherapy could help in enabling you to make the changes you want. Hypnotherapy work is uniquely tailored to you: the first step is for you to decide what you want to achieve from the process. This session is free of charge.

 

Subsequent appointments will include a discussion of progress and goals, followed by hypnosis. For example, in IBS-focused hypnotherapy, we would explore your experience of troubling symptoms and how we might minimise their effects. For other conditions the focus is also on moving towards your preferred future: a future in which the problem is no longer holding you back. For the second half of the appointment I guide you into a trance to engage your brain’s natural ability to adapt and make changes. Relaxing and dreamlike, it is a natural state in which you stay fully in control. You will be given a relaxation MP3 to listen to every night to begin the process of change.

Hypnotherapy works best as a partnership: your involvement is an important part of the process. Often I need to take a detailed history, and in some cases, may request your permission to write to your doctor to let them know you are having hypnotherapy. 

I work quickly and aim to help you achieve significant, positive change in a relatively short period of time.

Sessions last for 1 hour. I would normally expect to see you for 6 - 12 sessions for IBS- focused hypnotherapy and the majority of other issues, and 3 - 4 sessions for work to remove phobias and deep-seated fears. 

 

Skype or Zoom sessions are also available
