“ I found the treatment very relaxing and was reassured that I was completely aware of
my surroundings and in control at all times.”
What do I do and how do the sessions work?
Once you have made the decision that you want to change an area of your life, the first step is to contact me.
Following a brief chat, I will send you a form to complete. The form will allow me to ensure that there are no reasons (ethically or medically) that we may not work together and give me some important information that will help us to make the most of our first session together.
During the first session we will discuss your goals and ensure that the 3 critical conditions are in place to support you being hypnotised, namely:
You give your consent to be hypnotised – this means we have addressed any fears that you have.
You are willing to trust me to hypnotise you.
There is good communication between us.
With all those in place I will give you an experience of hypnosis.
The first session will be approximately 1.5 hours long. It aims to give you all the information you need to
you want to pursue hypnotherapy as the route to achieving your goal.
In future sessions you will experience increasingly deeper levels of hypnotic sleep and I will work with you
to help you achieve your goals. It is important to recognise that I do not ‘cure’ you, I guide you by
showing you the route but you decide if you want to go down it! There is no magic wand and no drugs, I just using
the power of your mind to help you make the changes you want to. And it is this sense of empowerment, the
that the answers are within, that is a big factor in delivering long term change.
You may be given exercises or activities to do between sessions and it is likely that you will be given a personalised
CD to listen to. The speed of your progress will be strongly influenced by your willingness to do these activities and listen
to the CD.
