Sessions and fees
I offer an initial consultation lasting an hour which serves a number of purposes: it gives you the opportunity to explain why you are seeking help, and enables me to assess whether hypnotherapy can help. It allows us to build rapport and to decide whether we would like to work together.
After taking some basic details and asking about your issue, I explain the workings of the brain with regards to your particular situation and how, if our subconscious mind perceives a threat to our wellbeing, it can have an unhelpful effect on our thoughts and behaviours; most people find this explanation enlightening.
I explain the process of hypnosis, which is a much more ordinary experience than many people believe. We will agree an approximate number of sessions, but to give you some idea of what's involved, I typically see clients on average for between 9 and 12 sessions on a weekly basis to begin with, although this is reduced as you maintain your progress through the sessions.
I will give you a complementary Relaxation CD (my own) to listen to between the sessions which will continue to support the work we do together. Please note hypnosis is not offered as part of this initial consultation.
Subsequent appointments last for an hour and are completely tailored to you. We begin by reviewing how things have been since our last session, with particular emphasis on things that have gone well. We review how the mind works as a prelude to Solution Focused questions designed to elicit positive responses. This is a pivotal part of the therapy and is also the part where the client has to work the hardest! This is followed by hypnosis, which most people find very relaxing, and is designed to consolidate the therapeutic work.
Smoking cessation lasts up to two hours and the initial consultation is included as part of this session. Full client commitment is essential and willpower is required in order to achieve long term success.
The fee for an Initial Consultation and a standard session is £50.
The fee for a 2 hour Smoking Session is £150.
All fees are to be settled at the end of each session by cash or cheque.
NB: Please note I require 48 hours notice for cancelled appointments. I reserve the right to charge the full session fee outside of this notice period and for missed appointments.
