When meeting for the first time we will discuss the issues that you would like help with and identify the goals you would like to reach. You will be encouraged to ask any questions you may have about hypnotherapy. We will decide together the number of sessions it is likely you will need and the cost of this so that you know upfront.
It is important to realise however, that it can be difficult to give a completely accurate guide of how many sessions will be needed, though we will discuss
this during the sessions.
After an in-depth discussion I will ask you to make yourself comfortable and will induce a calm state of relaxation. During the session I will choose the most appropriate treatment for you and the issues to be addressed, using the variety of skills that I have to ensure the treatment is completely tailored to your needs in order to achieve the best possible outcome. During hypnosis most people are usually aware of their surroundings and can hear the noises around them while sometimes allowing the conscious mind to drift. After ending the hypnosis session we will discuss how you felt it went and again you will be encouraged to ask any questions which may have arisen. If further sessions are required, as initially discussed, we will arrange an appointment for our next meeting before you leave. After experiencing hypnotherapy most people find that they can remember all or most of what was said during the session and feel relaxed, yet energised and ready to face the rest of the day with ease.
You can rest assured that anything discussed during your appointments remains completely confidential (within the constraints of Law). Any written information i hold is securely stored for a period of time stipulated by the GHR, and is then disposed of carefully.
