So what can I expect?
How much is each session?
Please see the individual therapist pages as prices differ between Ipswich and London.
What typically happens in a hypnotherapy session?
At the initial consultation we will discuss with you what you want to achieve through hypnotherapy. We will then begin to assess your problem through a series of questions, taking details of your history connected with the issue and your psychological health. Whilst doing so we will also explain how the mind and therapy works, so you feel informed and comfortable at all times. From this information we should be able to give you a guide to the amount of sessions required and for you to have plenty of opportunity to ask questions, express any concerns etc. We will also introduce you to hypnosis and NLP during this first session which will be recorded 'live' on to a CD for you to take home and continue listening to until the following session.
Subsequent sessions consist of discussion time of your progress and any changes you have noticed, as well as areas you may still need further progress on. NLP will be continued into subsequent sessions as well as hypnosis and/or EFT as applicable (please see below and the separate pages for NLP for further information). Wtih each subsequent session we will be continually moving you towards your goal, we very much work together, this is your therapy and therefore your input on your progress and any concerns are taken seriously and welcomed.
Typical Length of a Hypnotherapy session?
The first session is 1.5hrs and thereafter each session is 1hr. Longer sessions can be booked where there are time constraints i.e. for our National / International clients who may only be in London or the country for a short period.
Smoking Cessation Sessions are 2 hrs
How can we check your Qualifications?
We have links to the Governing Bodies we are registered with above, so you can check our listing and also our certificates are clearly displayed in our offices for your reassurance.
How can we check your Testimonials?
Our Testimonials are randomly checked by our Governing Body, the NCH, whereby we need to be able to provide evidence to verify the authenticity of the testimonial. For many years the NCH disallowed testimonials as these can be fabricated, but, later last year, they decided, with strict guidelines, that testimonials can be used, therefore, due to the short period of time we have been allowed to use testimonials, we currently only have a small amount on our website.
What are the typical number of sessions required?
This depends on the condition we are treating and the severity. Phobias are treated generally in about 1-3 sessions and smoking in one session, whereas eating disorders and addictions for example benefit from a minimum, generally, of 3 as well as career coaching etc.. We are happy to see clients on a long or short term basis depending on your needs. Please see the individual therapy pages for further information and do contact us with your individual needs.
Will I feel safe? Are your clinics located in central locations?
Yes, we want you to feel safe and comfortable at all times. Our clinics are clean and fresh, designed with your comfort in mind and are based in central locations. Your comfort and safety are our number one priority. We are warm, open Hypnotherapists with vast experience not only in therapy but also in life.
What happens if I can't keep an appointment?
If you cannot keep your appointment, please let us know at least 48hours prior to your appointment to free the time for another client. We often have a waiting list for appointments, therefore, if we have plenty of notice, another client can benefit from our services. We also spend time prior to your appointment tailoring the session for you and working on your treatment, therefore, by giving us plenty of notice, this will also free up our time further. If at least 48hours notice isn't provided, the full fee will be charged to cover our costs.
What if I want to end therapy?
We can bring your treatment to an end any time you choose. If you want to discontinue your treatment do call us so we feel assured you are making the right decision and to give you any further advice you might need at that stage for the future. We can also refer you on to another Hypnotherapist or Psychotherapist depending on your needs.
