What to Expect

What will happen during your treatment

Let’s get started

In a free initial phone consultation, I can answer your questions and tell you about the therapy and how it will help you.  This will allow you to decide if you would like to take the next step.  

In Session 1, we get straight down to business.  It is probably the most important session.  I ask more about you and what your best hopes are from the therapy.  Then I explain how the brain works in relation to the issue you have brought and, most importantly, how we can work together to fulfil your hopes.  We will discuss the logistics, (appointment times, costs etc.)  and you will take a soundtrack away with you as well as some techniques to get you started.  You will have lots to think about and plenty of encouragement to start off your journey!  This session is scheduled for an hour but may take a little longer.  Your first hypnosis is in Session 2.

Subsequent sessions will last around 55 minutes to 1 hour. Each time we will identify the positive changes you are making and build on them, finishing with a relaxing hypnosis.

Week by week, you will be moving towards how you want things to be, rather than focusing on how you don’t want them to be.

Therapy sessions focus on finding solutions

Therapy sessions focus on finding solutions – positive steps towards your preferred future, rather than analysing the past. We cannot change what has already happened, but we can change our way of thinking about it, as well as the way to progress into the future. If you have had negative experiences in life, we acknowledge these and help you get from where you are to where you want to be.
In this way, we will :

Recognise where you are currently

Identify where you want to be

Help you to make changes to get there.

The procedures for Smoking Cessation and Phobias are different and I will happily tell you about those if you wish.

Number of sessions

The number of sessions will depend upon your individual needs and progress. Many people attend a Consultation followed by four sessions and we review as we go.

Phobias can often be resolved within three sessions. If you have additional anxieties, we may need to work together for a little longer.

Smoking Cessation normally requires two appointments.

Weight Loss – A Mindset Approach This short course requires a consultation/planning session (charged at £50) followed by two 90 minute appointments. However, sometimes we need more than two to ensure that you are ready for the course.

My ‘studio’ is a large, comfortable, ground floor room in a private house which is easy to find. There is plenty of space in the driveway so there is no parking hassle and you will arrive feeling calm. There is a downstairs cloakroom available. For your hypnotherapy trance sessions you have the choice of a couch or a soft leather reclining chair.
