Take the next step...
I know it can be daunting when deciding to take that first step to make some changes in your life. But rest assured, at our initial consultation I will explain in full how Hypnotherapy or Counselling can help you and we'll look at what you want to achieve.
This usually lasts for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
After we discuss what is going on for you and the issues you are facing, i will complete the consultation paperwork and ask you to sign the agreement and then after this i will explain to you how the mind works, including our thought processes, why we do what we do and how hypnotherapy will be used to help. We will discuss what happens during the relaxed hypnotic state and I’ll make sure to answer any questions you may have.
I’ll also give you a free download to listen to at home.
The sessions will last for approximately 50 minutes to an hour. We’ll begin each session by talking together to identify a way forward and review your progress and your goals, giving the session a clear solution focus.
You’ll then relax in a comfortable chair and I’ll talk to you and gently guide you into a relaxed hypnotic state of focused attention to help you in the process of making beneficial changes to achieve your preferred future.
All sessions are positive, respectful and confidential.
