What happens in a hypnotherapy session?

The first session starts with you telling me about yourself, both generally and specifically in relation to your concern.  We’ll also discuss hypnosis, how it works and how it can be used to help you. 

You can ask any questions you want and, together, we’ll agree the content of each hypnosis session before we do it.  It is important for me to know that you are comfortable with every part of the process.

We’ll end the session with hypnosis, assuming you are happy to do so.  After this, you will be able to go about your day absolutely normally – you are likely to leave in a very positive frame of mind.  You will also most likely be able to remember everything from the session – both from our initial discussion and during hypnosis.

How many sessions will be needed?

The process by which hypnotherapy changes behavioural patterns in the subconscious means it is one of the quickest of the talking therapies.  Despite this, it is still not always possible to give a precise number of sessions.  Generally, 2 or 3 are necessary, though occasionally more can be needed – it simply depends on the condition and how it is affecting you. 

  1. Smoking, however, is always treated in a single session of up to two hours.  Hypnoband is 5 sessions.
  2. Sessions are normally one week apart to give you time to recognise any changes.  They can be further apart if necessary.
  3. In all cases, I commit to keeping the number of sessions to a minimum.

Late arrivals, Cancellations & Deposit

Please plan to arrive a few minutes early for your appointment so we can start on time.  All appointments will end at the pre-allocated time to be fair to subsequent clients.  Late arrivals will be charged for the full time allocated.

We are charged a non refundable room rental fee in the clinics we use (at the point of booking the room).  We also spend time preparing for each session and hope you understand that it is only fair this time and cost are safeguarded to a small degree with this deposit.  Deposits are returned at the end of the pre-agreed final session (usually as a deduction from the fees of the final session).  The deposit is not refundable against sessions that are booked and cancelled or are "no-shows."  Sessions may be postponed by email up until 24 hours before the appointment.
