Consultations & Treatments
The first free 20 minute phone consult is to establish whether working with me is the best path for you and whether I can be of service at this stage.
This is then followed by an initial in person consultation which is a 1 to1.5 hour session in order for me to best grasp and assess the issues you would like to address and the most efficacious way for us to move forward.
It is a paramount stage of the process of Hypnotherapy for the sake of clarity and to enable us to have a mutual understanding in regards to proceeding with a course of therapy that will yield the most beneficial results in as short a time as possible. All information gathered is always held in the strictest confidence & inline with privacy laws.
It is the best way for me to have a deeper understanding as to what the clients goals & aspirations are in order to provide the best service possible.
A thorough initial assessment can save time & money in the long run.
If time allows and it is appropriate we can proceed with a Hypnotic induction or some NLP immediately after the assessment.
The initial consult is then followed by a Hypnotherapy session that is more in-depth & further strategically tailored given time I have spent inquiring & analysing the information previously gathered
There may or may not be further sessions needed depending on the clients goals, commitment to change & the complexity of the issue. For example a client who is a student and only wishes to improve their memory in regards to a specific exam, may only need the one session and will get great results.
A client who may be presenting issues with depression may take significantly longer depending on the severity of the issue.
A rough guide can generally be most presenting issues can take between 3 and 6 sessions, with smoking usually treated in one lengthy session.
However it is important to realise each individual client has unique needs and it is paramount to tailor each course of Hypnotherapy appropriately as client needs evolve and change.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a beautifully relaxed & highly pleasant trance state of consciousness akin to daydreaming. A trance state in a therapeutic setting is deliberately induced. However we all experience varying degrees of trance states. These can be whilst reading a book, watching TV or Film, watching sport, doing a repetitive task like washing the dishes, watching the waves break on the beach or playing video games. However the level of trance in a therapeutic setting is deliberately induced at a deeper level than most ordinary trance states.
All Hypnosis is essentially self Hypnosis. I will merely be facilitating the process. The suggestions I will be giving will be derived from your own clinical needs & goals and your Subconscious mind will automatically remove those that it does not wish to retain. At all times you have control in regards to going into a trance & bringing yourself out. You will be able to talk to me at any stage of even the deepest trance. You will be able to disengage from a trance at any point in time.
What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming?
NLP can best be summarised generally as the study of human excellence and how best to model the behaviour. This can then be integrated into an individuals life where appropriate to affect change. It can also be described as the study of subjective experience or the art & science of communication.
NLP can also obviously reveal areas of subjective experience or programming which may not be of benefit for the individual and can quite quickly & effectively begin to address those issues by changing or reframing the negative behaviour patterns.
NLP is often used in the clinical environment in conjunction with Hypnosis to effect rapid change with many issues such as Phobias, Conflicts, Confidence Building, Changing Careers, Starting A Business, Eating Disorders, Addictions, Public Speaking, Exams & Sports Performance.
