How many sessions will I need?

Suggestion “quick fix” Hypnotherapy – simple issues may require 2-3 sessions.

The Thrive Programme requires 6 sessions, although most clients feel better and more in control after just the first session. My goal is to work with you for the shortest time necessary for you to achieve your goal.

How long does each session last?

Approximately 75 minutes.

I’ve seen stage performers doing hypnosis – will I end up doing silly things?

Volunteers for stage performances are hand picked and are generally the types of people that would be outrageous in normal life. You cannot and will not be made to do anything that would be against your will. Similarly, you will not say anything in hypnosis that you would not normally wish to reveal. Although you are relaxed, you are still in complete control.

What does hypnosis feel like?

It is an nice relaxing state, rather like a pleasant daydream. You are conscious of your surroundings and aware of everything that is happening throughout the session. The brain wave patterns of people in hypnosis show alert wakefulness.

Can I be hypnotised?

Anyone can experience hypnosis unless they are unwilling to do so, are incapable of any degree of concentration or are drunk or high on drugs.

Can I get ‘stuck’ in hypnosis?

Never. You can come out of hypnosis any time

Is it normal to feel awkward or embarrassed about seeking help?

Absolutely – most people do! One of the hardest things can be just picking up the phone to make the initial booking. However, I see about 20-25 clients a week which shows the popularity and effectiveness of the help I offer.
