Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hypnosis ?
When you’re under Hypnosis you can’t be made to do anything against your will and you can’t be controlled. You’ll be aware of your surroundings and actions at all times.
During the sessions we’ll work together getting positive thoughts across to the most powerful parts of your mind.
So what is Hypnotherapy ?
Simply put, the positive changes you want to make are guided by carefully worded suggestions made by the Hypnotherapist. They are presented in a way that the subconscious mind will find acceptable and be willing to act upon.
Hypnotherapy helps to give you that gentle push to be able to make those changes that deep down you really want to happen.
How much will my Hypnotherapy Treatment cost?
I offer a free 30 minute inital consultation before any treatment begins. This can be done in person, over the phone or email.
A Hypnotherapy session which lasts one hour is £75.00 payable by cash, credit or debit card or PayPal.
How many sessions will I need?
A good, professional Hypnotherapist won’t recommend more sessions than are necessary. I always work towards the fastest, most positive route that we can take together to help you achieve your goals for well-being and happiness.
How effective is Hypnotherapy?
Below is an extract from the American Health Magazine which compared the effectiveness of different therapies with regards to their success in making behavioural changes.
(A survey of Psychotherapy literature by Psychologist Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D in the 60’s)
Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions.
Behaviour Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions.
Psycho Analysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions.
These figures are published on many websites, and are based on findings in the 1960s. Hypnotherapy is still in the lead as far as success verses number-of-sessions is concerned, even taking into account that all 3 disciplines will have made advancements
So why is Hypnotherapy apparently so effective?
By getting your subconscious to accept a new idea, or ways of thinking through Hypnosis, you automatically accept it on a conscious level. This allows you to be free of old habits, thought patterns and some physical problems. It empowers you to make the positive changes you want. Importantly, these are changes that can last a lifetime.
