In many cases, three to six appointments are sufficient, however, it can vary from
person to person. A key part of each session will be the opportunity to discuss progress
with the hypnotherapist to ensure each session benefits you the most.
How long is each session?
Sessions are around an hour, or slightly longer. The fee is per session, not per
hour, so however long your appointment takes, you will never be asked to pay more.
When are appointments available?
My working hours are 9am-6pm Monday to Thursday, and 9am-12pm on Friday. Please call
me to discuss a time that works well for you.
What happens in a hypnotherapy session?
At your first appointment a detailed case history will be taken, and a plan for therapy
will be agreed with you. Hypnosis will be explained and you can discuss any questions
you have. During the actual hypnosis, you can lie or sit, as you relax deeply and
listen to the hypnotherapist.
In subsequent sessions, progress will be discussed, self hypnosis will be taught,
and tailored hypnosis will be given.
Will I be asleep/unconscious during the hypnosis?
No, definitely not. Although hypnotherapy talks about sleep, it is ‘hypnotic sleep’
and is not the same as conventional sleep. Hypnosis is a deeply relaxed state, similar
to the feelings just as you begin to wake on a morning or fall asleep at night. Most
people describe hypnosis as a very pleasant, relaxed sensation.
Will I be under the hypnotherapist’s control?
No one can be made to enter a hypnotic trance against their wishes. Hypnotherapy
is a partnership between client and therapist, and you remain in control at all times.
