Q: how many sessions will I need?

A: The number of sessions required will depend on what the issue is and how long the issue has been a problem, also how complex the issues are as well as you as an individual. Most hypnotherapy sessions are delivered as a tailor-made package unique to you. Your initial consultation is important as this enables the hypnotherapist to give you a much better idea of what is required for you.

Q: how longer sessions last?

A: sessions typically last between an hour and an hour and a half. This can vary slightly depending on the nature of the issues. The first session allows you and the therapist to become acquainted and also allows time for the gathering of information about you, your life and how your problem is affecting you. It may also be the time for the setting of goals to help you begin the process of change through using appropriate therapeutic techniques. Practical tasks will usually set at the end of each session to ensure that the changes that have been made will become second nature to you. This session usually lasts between 60 to 90 minutes.

Subsequent sessions:

the sessions will last between 45 to 60 minutes, in order that your concentration levels are maintained and you get the best from the process. At the end of each session you will be given homework to help you maintain the changes you are making and new goals may also be set.

Q: Is the therapy dangerous?

A. Hypnotherapy is a hundred percent safe and natural it’s more like a wonderful, deep relaxation. It is like the period between being fully awake and fully asleep, something we all do between a hundred and hundred and fifty times a day; we going to in and out of hypnosis or daydream. Just think about the time when you are going to work and driving your car and you wonder how you got there. That is an example of a period of hypnosis; this is when your unconscious mind takes over from your conscious mind and you just arrive.
