Please see my frequently asked questions below

How does therapy work?

Completed by drilling down into the issues and pin pointing where the issues lie.  Depending on the issues presented therapy may commence on the second session or may take a little longer.  The aim is that each time you come to see me you will feel a little lighter and better.

How long is each session?

Each session lasts about an hour, except smoking assistance which is 90 minutes.

Do you have insurance?

Yes I have public liability indemnity insurance

How often would I come to a therapy sessions?

How often you come to see me is up to you, and can suit your availability and finances.  Most clients tend to come on a weekly basis at first and then move to a fortnightly basis.  Weekly or monthly appointments can be accommodated.
Excepting Hypnobirthing which requires the course to be completed by week 35 of the pregnancy.

Is what we discuss in sessions confidential?

Yes it is, however the only exception to this is where it is believed that the client was about to endanger themselves or others, but they would be informed if this was the case.

How do I know if a therapist is right for me?

Hypnotherapy is a highly respected field and recognised by the British Medical Association. Take a look at this handy checklist below when researching the right therapist for you.

  • Choose one that clearly states that they have trained and are qualified with a professional education centre which is recognised by a well known Association such as  Association of Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP). 

  • Ensure that your hypnotherapist has a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. 

  • In addition to this it is also imperative that they are registered with independent professional bodies such as the CNHC, APHP, NCH, NRPC, GHR, etc and receiving regular CPD as this will ensure that your therapist is at the top of their game and abiding by a strict code of conduct.

  • Word of mouth is probably the best way of finding the best therapist as a tried and tested practitioner their results speak for themselves.

  • Seek a therapist who offers a free initial consultation so that you can meet with your therapist to see if they are right for you.  Never underestimate your gut instinct, in therapy rapport is everything.

  • When deciding which therapist you go to see ensure you ask about the structure of the therapy.  A good therapist should explain all this to you, whilst it is not possible to say exactly how many sessions you should have you should feel you are in control as to how many sessions you have to ensure it is affordable to you.

  • The most expensive therapist may not be the best, likewise the cheapest therapist may also not end up being the cheapest if you have to see them for longer in order to receive results, you can get a good gauge about the therapist and therapy in your initial consultation and a good therapist should want to review your situation after 3 or so sessions to ensure the best results.

How many sessions will I need?

It is difficult to say how many sessions as each person is unique, but there is always a review after the 3rd session to ensure progress is being made.  The aim is that each time you come to see me you feel a little better.  That said most presenting issues are resolved in 2-4 sessions, more complex issues or multiple issues can take longer but you are always in control of how often and when you come to see make sure that if it was the first time you were visiting the site, you’d understand your answer.

Where is your office located?
