The number of sessions required does vary from client to client. In rare cases one session is enough, but most clients will need between 3 and 6 sessions to achieve their goals. For deep-rooted issues we may need to work together for longer and will discuss this during the initial consultation.
A session lasts between 1 - 1.5 hours. I adapt each session to individual clients but on the whole about half the time is spent in hypnosis, and the rest of the time is devoted to pre- and post-hypnosis discussions.
This format helps us to effectively explore the root causes of the condition, in order to be able to neutralise them and so maximise the potential of providing you with a life-long solution.
Hypnosis is a completely natural state of deep relaxation. All hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis, with the hypnotherapist acting as a guide to your own subconscious. Hypnotherapy is the art of using this state in order to achieve therapeutic goals: hypnotherapy for anxiety, for dealing with phobias, to stop or reduce unwanted behaviours to name but a few. You remain in control at all times, and will never be made to do or say anything that you don’t agree with. You are not actually asleep, and will be able to rouse and respond should an emergency occur.
Hypnosis is a state that we experience several times a day in our ordinary lives. For instance:
•being engrossed in a book or a film to the point of not being aware of what’s going on around you
•that ‘day-dream’ state we sometimes experience whilst driving along a familiar route, then we arrive at our destination without consciously recalling part of that journey
•the moments before we fall or asleep, or just before we awaken
It happens when our conscious thought processes ‘take a back seat’, and our subconscious takes over. Our subconscious is capable of processing multiple thoughts and ideas at the same time, as opposed to our conscious mind only being able to handle one question at a time. Accessing our subconscious through hypnosis allows us to effectively tackle issues in a very short space of time.
Your initial session will cost £55 for 1.5 hours. Subsequent sessions will last 1 hour and cost £40.
