Will I be in control?
Yes! You will always be in complete control.
What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the whole session, hypnosis is the trance part. ‘Trance’ is a very relaxed state of focussed attention which your mind is more responsive to ideas. In this therapeutic setting suggestions are made to help you change unhelpful thought patterns to positive solutions.
Is everything I tell you confidential?
Yes, everything you say is kept in the strictest of confidence. However, if you disclose an illegal activity, or if it is believed that you are in danger of harming yourself or someone else, then it becomes my professional duty to report this to the relevant organisations/authorities.
Do I need to be referred by a GP?
No, although GPs do refer people to hypnotherapy it isn't a requirement. However, if you have certain medical conditions it may be prudent to visit your doctor before commencing treatment.
How long is a hypnotherapy session?
Sessions last approx. 50 – 60 minutes. The first session is the initial consultation so this might vary slightly.
How many sessions will I need?
There is no way to know how may sessions will be needed as everyone responds differently to hypnotherapy. This will be discussed at the initial consultation.
How far apart should appointments be?
Ideally sessions should be weekly or fortnightly but this can be varied if necessary.
How will I feel after a hypnotherapy session?
Many people feel refreshed, invigorated and more confident after their hypnotherapy session. It's also very common to feel a sense of relief in starting to tackle the issue that has been affecting their life.
