The Practice Rooms: Serious about your wellbeing
All hypnotherapy sessions take place at ‘The Practice Rooms houses beautifully furnished consultation rooms. If you do not live in locally or you are not able to travel, I am happy to visit you at home or arrange a Skype consultation.
When you book a hypnotherapy session there is no need to worry. It will be safe, confidential and above all a relaxing experience. But if you feel it will make you more comfortable, you are welcome to bring a friend or relative along with you.
The initial consultation will give you the opportunity to determine whether solution focused hypnotherapy is the right approach for you. No hypnosis will take place during this session.
This 60-minute initial consultation involves:
- An open discussion about the goals you would like to achieve, and how I can help you do this.
- A full explanation about how the brain works with regards to solution focused hypnotherapy.
- Development of a personal care plan and estimate of the number of sessions required.
- The opportunity for you to ask about anything that concerns you.
After your initial consultation a FREE relaxation MP3 track will be emailed to you.
Listen to this about half an hour before you go to bed each night and you should notice an improvement in the quality of your sleep.
What happens in a hypnotherapy session?
Further Hypnotherapy sessions last 60 minutes. But solution focused hypnotherapy is about more than just the hypnosis itself.
In the first part of your session we will talk about the progress you have made. I will also be encouraging you to express yourself positively, focusing on weekly solutions. We will use a number of well-renowned techniques to allow us to review and discuss your progress. This will allow you to see the very real positive progress that you are making throughout the therapy.
In the second part of your session, I will guide you into a relaxed state of hypnosis by using guided language patterns set to relaxation music. During hypnosis I will help you to imagine your preferred future, a future where you have a more useful perspective on the quality of your life.
Hypnosis enables us to relax our mind and body to go into a subconscious state – often called a ‘trance’ or ‘daydream’. This may sound scary, but it is not. On average a person goes into a trance every seven minutes. This is considered a very ordinary and normal human activity. We can go into a trance when we are reading a book, doing housework or working out at the gym.
During hypnosis you will be guided into a similar state so that beneficial suggestion can be directed towards your subconscious mind. Hypnosis is simply a state of focused attention. In this relaxed state, your mind is more responsive to suggestion. In a therapeutic setting, the suggestions are designed to help you change unhelpful thought patterns.
Clients often comment about how “ordinary” Hypnosis feels – you can hear everything that is being said whilst in a deeply relaxed state. I often describe it as guided daydreaming.
How many sessions will I require?
After your initial consultation you can choose as many further 60-minute sessions as you wish to undertake. The number of sessions is dependent on factors such as the condition you presented with at your Initial consultation, your ongoing progress with the sessions, and your progress. I may advise, but you will have complete control.

Care agreement and cancellation policy
At the end of your initial consultation, assuming you wish to continue with hypnotherapy, I will ask you to sign a ‘care agreement’. This contract is there to protect you, the client, and to clarify any legalities. Once we have both signed, I will give you a copy and retain the original.
Your time is valuable and I will always be punctual for your appointment. If you are unable to make the appointment, I politely request that you give 48 hours notice to allow me to reschedule another client. All cancellations must be made verbally by telephone (if you leave a message that is fine). Unfortunately emails or text messages cannot be accepted. Due to overheads incurred, same day cancellations, forgotten or missed appointments will be charged in full.
