Frequently Asked Questions
I understand that the idea of therapy can be quite daunting and can raise a few questions so I have collated a few common questions to help with any concerns you may have. But of course if there is anything I have missed, then please get in touch.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened awareness and increased suggestibility, often accompanied by deep relaxation. In hypnosis, we can bypass the conscious mind’s critical faculty and tap into the power of the subconscious mind. This process creates positive changes to our beliefs, thoughts , habits and behaviours.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
You’ve probably been in a state of hypnosis already today, and will be again before the day’s end. When you get engrossed in a good book or a film, lose yourself in a daydream, or arrive at your destination however have no recollection of the journey, this is because your mind was somewhere else … you’re in a light trance.
So you already have the ability to be hypnotised; and you’ve already been doing it easily and effortlessly by accident. With Hypnotherapy, you’ll learn to use that ability on purpose to help you achieve your life goals.
Can a therapist take control of my mind?
Hypnosis is a “do with” process, you work together with your therapist, You are completely in control of yourself during hypnosis, aware of your surroundings, and capable of making decisions. You remain selective: you take in suggestions that only evoke your goals, So clinical hypnosis can’t make you do something against your principles or moral beliefs.
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No. You may find hypnosis so pleasurable that you’re reluctant for it to end. But, you will return to your wide awake and alert state, feeling relaxed and refreshed.
How Many Sessions will I need?
I’m totally dedicated to clients that are determined to help themselves, Once clients are happy and confident to go it alone I’m more than happy to encourage them to do so, if they then decide to return for a few extra sessions at a later date , its really down to you and the progress you make.
Everyone is different and the number of sessions will often depend on the symptoms and situation a client presents with. As a guide, generally 3 / 4 sessions is the point where we assess progress and for some that’s all that is needed.
Anxiety and depression, weight management, IBS are usually more.
Stopping smoking is however is a 2 hour session and is completed in one session.

I take payment by cash, debit and credit card and payment is due by the end of each therapy session.
