What happens in the free 30 minute consultation
There is no hypnosis in this session but I think it is really important that you have an opportunity to meet me before you decide to proceed with hypnotherapy. You can tell me all about yourself and the issue you would like to work on. I can then explain how hypnotherapy could specifically help you. It is most important that you feel comfortable with your decision so I am very happy for you to go away and think over our meeting before you make a decision. However, you might decide you want to book up straight away, so we can then timetable your first session and I would email you a short audio file to listen to at home. This starts the process of associating my voice with relaxation and means you can get the most out of the therapy sessions right from the very beginning.
What does it feel like to be hypnotised ?
Hypnosis is a very natural state. We go into it by ourselves many times a day if we are daydreaming or performing a behaviour that is ingrained in our subconscious minds and doesn't require the input of conscious thinking. Have you ever driven safely along a really familiar road but realise you have no actual recollection of the drive. Then you were in trance and allowing your unconscious mind to take over. During a hypnotherapy session I will help you relax and go into trance simply by listening to my voice.
People usually describe being in trance as a very relaxing experience. They enjoy the feeling of deep relaxation and letting go but still feel they can be in control if they need to be. Once you are in trance then the therapy part of the session can take place .You can make the changes you want in your unconscious mind, the part that is driving the unwanted thoughts and behaviours.
If you have any worries or concerns about hypnosis why not getting touch and I would be happy to give you the specific reassurance you need.
What happens in a hypnotherapy session ?
Once you are in a hypnotic state the therapy part of the session begins. I will tailor the session to your particular issue and needs and have many different techniques to call upon. These gently guide your unconscious mind let go of the thought patterns that are hindering you and replace them instead with supportive and encouraging ways of thinking. Once your thoughts and perspective change, then so do your behaviours and then so does your experience of life .
If you are interested in finding out more then why not book one of the free introductory sessions and we can discuss this further.
The issue I have doesn't appear on your list, can hypnotherapy still help me?
Hypnotherapy can help in any situation where your conscious and unconscious thinking is hindering you rather than helping you. Therefore this list of things it can help with is almost endless.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this further or arrange a free 30 minute consultation when I can explain how hypnotherapy could help with your particular issue.
Where is your practice?
I practice from my home in Redland. I have a lovely peaceful consultation room where I am sure you will feel very comfortable, safe and relaxed.
We are in one of the resident parking zones. You should be able to park close by but you will need to pay for parking by getting a ticket from the machine. If you are coming for one of the free 30 minute sessions then the first 30 minutes of parking is free. However you must still get and display a ticket .
How long are the sessions, how much do they cost and how many am I likely to need?
Sessions are an hour long and cost £70
The number of sessions required can vary with the type of issue and the client. Obviously we can discuss this when you come for the free session but I will be working to help you make the maximum changes in the minimum number of sessions. Most clients come for between 3 and 6 sessions.
