How will I feel?
Hypnosis creates a wonderfully relaxed feeling that you will enjoy and look forward to in any future hypnotherapy sessions. Under hypnosis your mind may wander off at times but, importantly, your subconscious mind is always listening to everything that is said.
What if I am having trouble relaxing?
We understand you may experience some anxiety at your initial hypnotherapy session. We will discuss this and allay any fears so that when you are ready to proceed with hypnosis you will be feeling relaxed and looking forward to it.
Will I cluck like a chicken?
We guarantee you will not cluck like a chicken… or any other animal. That is purely hypnosis for TV and Stage.
How do I know if I have been hypnotised?
You may come out of hypnosis feeling that only 15mins has gone by when in fact you’ve been under hypnosis for 30-45mins. You will feel relaxed. You may feel a “weight” has lifted. It all depends on what you have come to change. Over the following hours and days you will notice changes around your presenting issue. For example, change in eating, no anxiety when discussing a previous anxious event, not smoking.
How long is an hypnotherapy session?
A session of hypnosis lasts for 50 – 75 minutes and during that time there will be counselling to discover what changes you would like to make followed by hypnosis to implement those changes.
How many sessions will I need?
This is dependent on your presenting issues and desired outcomes and will be discussed at your first session. Hypnotherapy is very powerful and can work quickly but this is dependent of the individual and their needs.
If a session is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice and not reschedule within 2 weeks then a cancellation fee is charged. If there is a No Show then the full session fee is payable.
