How long will the Hypnotherapy session last?

A normal session of hypnotherapy will last around 50-60 minutes. This will include around 5-10 minutes prior to hypnosis to discuss progress and goals. Then the therapist will begin the hypnosis which will last around 30-40 minutes, then there will be a post hypnosis discussion lasting about 5-10 minutes to arrange another appointment and ensure you are comfortable and happy to continue the day.

Can I have somebody with me during the hypnotherapy?

Yes. It is important that you feel comfortable during the therapy, so I am more than happy for someone to accompany you. However, due to the space available and the type of therapy, this will be limited to one person.

What do I need to wear?

You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. You will be sitting or lying down, so make sure you feel relaxed in whatever outfit you are wearing.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

For the first appointment there is nothing you need to bring with you. After this, the hypnotherapist will advise you for the next session if there is anything they would like for you to bring (i.e. smoking/food/dream diary) which will have already been discussed in prior appointments.

Can children have Hypnotherapy?

Children can have Hypnotherapy for many different conditions and behaviors. A child under the age of 16 will need to have a parent or guardian with them during the therapy session.

What if I change my mind on the therapy?

This is no problem as Hypnotherapy is not for everyone. We can discuss any issues with the therapy and proceed if mutually agreed or terminate the therapy at any time.

What happens if I am half way through treatment and have to pause due to holiday or unforeseen circumstances?

This will be a discussion with the therapist depending on treatment type and length of treatment completed or left. It may be appropriate to continue the therapy after the time away, and plans of self-treatment can be put in place for the time in-between sessions.

Can I wake up during the sessions if I feel uncomfortable?

Yes. You are in full control of the therapy. Although in a hypnotic state, you can wake any time and you can move and open your eyes to make yourself comfortable.

Will I be able to drive and work after Hypnotherapy?

Yes. After the hypnosis is completed the therapist will make time to ensure you are feeling awake and alert to be able to continue your normal daily life.

How many sessions will I need?

This will depend on the conditions/symptoms treatment. Therapy normally lasts about 5-6 sessions, however this can be shorter or longer, with the agreement on both the therapist and the client.

Why are Smoking sessions more expensive?

They are more expensive as the overall session will last longer, they also will include a recording as well as techniques to help to stop smoking. Two sessions are advised for full benefit and if you book the two together you will get a free ‘top up’ to be used within 6 months of the end of treatment.
