The best way to explain the therapeutic process and how my services are delivered is to explain how sessions are typically structured.
As the first step, it’s important that contact is made by the client, as it demonstrates commitment to change. Using the contact form or the telephone number shown, you’ll be asked why you’re seeking hypnotherapy. There’s no much information needed, just what brought you to me! I’ll also take some details, including basic medical information if applicable, completely confidentially.
The second step is typically a face to face consultation, so further information is gathered and goals can be set to help me shape a therapy course. You will only need to disclose whatever you feel comfortable about, though of course the more you share the better tailored future sessions will be. You will be put in trance to experience deep relaxation and maybe even be taught how to self induce hypnosis.
Depending on the presented condition, therapy will be structured over 3 or 5 sessions after that. It’s important that goals are achieved at the end of the therapeutic course, and so we will have a finite number of meetings. This solution-focused therapy feels good and will give you the tools to shape your future.
At the end of each session you will be asked to do some ‘homework’ to help reinforce the techniques used during our meetings. This will vary but will be easy to do – if you really want to change, it will be particularly easy! It could be writing a diary or practice self-hypnosis.
Sessions can be held in person or over Skype, although I prefer to hold the first session face to face at least.
You will notice changes happening straight away, even between booking your consultation and that first meeting. Sessions may also be recorded for personal use after the therapy are finished, just let me know in advance.
