What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is not actually a treatment, but a tool that helps me to work with you.
It is the strategies we explore together while you are in the state of hypnosis that provide the treatment.
In actual fact, hypnotherapy is only one of the tools I use. I also commonly use Emotional Freedom Technique which provides me with the opportunity to work with you to achieve your goals.
How long does it take?
I do very brief therapy using a minimum of sessions.
I want to move forward with you as quickly as possible. Typically most of my patients see a result within 2-4 sessions of 2-hours. Sessions maximise the therapy time.
Some common misconceptions about hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is a very misunderstood concept. This isn’t helped by the stage hypnotism industry, which leave people with a distorted perception! It’s worth remembering that under hypnosis:
- I cannot make you do anything against your will
- You are always in control
- You will not be asleep
- You will be able to remember everything
- You will hear everything
There are no guarantees, but as long as you work with me and want to reach your objective you will be successful. In fact the session will feel very much like a very nice, very relaxed conversation in which we work through your problems towards achieving your goals.
