I'm very cautious and concerned about booking a Hypnotherapist, how do I know if you are right for me?

We pride ourselves on being able to gain an instant friendly rapport with our clients, please feel free to contact the practitioner to discuss suitability for your particular case.

Can anybody be hypnotised?

Yes, anyone can be hypnotised as long as they want to be and have an ability to concentrate, everyone goes into natural altered (otherwise known as 'trance') states at some point. It is not appropriate for very young children or people with certain mental disabilities. I can not force you to go into hypnosis against your will.

Will I lose control?

No, you remain in control at all times. We or any other Hypnotherapists cannot have control over you.

Will I be made to do something silly?

Any Hypnotherapist will not make you do anything you would not normally do. This area of misconception is left for Stage Hypnotists.

What is the ’trance state’?

The trance state is simply an altered state of awareness, in which the client's attention is focussed on inner resources. Although everyone's experience of trance is slightly different, you'll always feel both comfortable and relaxed, and may experience a pleasant sense of 'drifting' and detachment from your surroundings.

What does the Hypnotherapy session involve?

Although every session is different, we will first discuss in some detail the changes you want to achieve, and then explain how it all works so it will relate to the therapy used. Everything is then geared to achieving that positive outcome. Progressive relaxation will be used to achieve a resourceful and relaxed physical and mental state. We then induce trance and make powerful therapeutic suggestions, tailored to the client as a unique individual, to the unconscious part of the client's mind, in order to achieve the positive outcome.

How many sessions will I need?

To stop smoking, usually just one single session will be required. For anything else, that depends on your motivation and desire to change. Everybody is different. However, hypnotherapy is a very effective therapy and I will want to help you in the minimum number of sessions possible. We will review your progress so that at any time you can make a valued judgement about how the therapy is progressing and if any more sessions will be required.

How long does a session last?

Sessions last between fifty minutes, and two hours.

Is all information and personal details kept confidential?

Yes, 100%

Will I be OK to drive or work after the session?

Yes, this is not a problem.
