Sessions & Fees


Initial consultation

The initial consultation will take 50 minutes. Firstly, it gives you the opportunity to explain why you are seeking help. It allows us to build rapport and to decide whether we would like to work together. I take some basic details and ask you what you want the hypnotherapy to help you with, for example, anxiety, confidence, panic attacks, stress, phobias, insomnia or sports performance. Secondly, I explain the workings of the brain with regards to your particular issue. Finally, I outline the process of hypnosis, which is a much more ordinary experience than many people think. We will agree an approximate number of sessions. I will give you a YouTube link to a hypnotic induction track to listen to before we start the process.

Subsequent sessions

The subsequent sessions last for 50 minutes. We begin by reviewing how things have been since our last session. Furthermore, we highlight things that have gone well. As a prelude to Solution Focused Therapy questions, a review is then done reminding you about how the mind works. These questions are specifically designed to encourage positive responses. Importantly, this is the part where the client has to work the hardest! Lastly, we complete the session with hypnosis, which most people find very relaxing. This is designed to consolidate the therapeutic work.

Phobia therapy

Phobia treatment takes 3 sessions following the initial consultation. This involves the Rewind Technique and concludes in a reframe or visualisation session.

Smoking Cessation

Smoking cessation lasts up to two hours and the initial consultation is included as part of this session. Full client commitment is essential and willpower is required.

Hypnotherapy is effective however, success is not guaranteed. Full client commitment is important. Listening to the Hypnosis track between sessions is a vital element in the process and participation is necessary. This will be fully explained during in the initial consultation.
