Hypnotherapy is a very safe, drug-free form of therapy. The effectiveness of results depends on the willingness of the client to open their mind and the client’s desire to improve their condition. It is essential to understand that full participation and an active role on the client’s part will ensure success and long-term positive results.

After making your booking and completing a brief questionnaire, we meet online for the first session. At this time, we talk about what has led you to seek help and discuss your tailor-made treatment plan. We then work with a combination of strategic psychotherapy and hypnotherapy to help you achieve positive outcomes.

All sessions are conducted online. They are convenient, easy to access and just as effective as working face to face. In fact, many clients prefer the ease of not having to travel to an appointment.

 

Online hypnotherapy sessions do not require special equipment. All you need is:

 

  • High-speed Internet connection
  • A computer or smartphone with a webcam/camera
  • Headphones/earphones
  •  A quiet space
  • An online video chat program (such as Skype, Zoom or Facebook Messenger Chat)

After you have booked your first session, we will discuss the best platform to use. I’m happy to give guidance if you are new to the online environment.

Most people will experience positive results within the first session, so much so that they may feel that they only need to have one session to be totally free from their problem. It usually takes between 3-6 sessions to solidify the retraining of the brain and to ensure success. Sometimes it may be useful to have a top -up session every 6 months to keep the positive changes in place.
