What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

The initial consultation is for me to understand your goals, assess how best to help you and answer any questions you may have. It is also for you to make sure you feel comfortable and informed. You are never under any obligation to book sessions it is important that we both feel your goals are achievable and are happy to work together.

During the hypnotherapy session you will be guided into hypnosis. You will be fully in control and aware of your surroundings – you are not “put under” as many people wrongly believe when thinking of hypnosis. Some people will feel in an altered state during hypnosis, maybe noticing changes in bodily sensations, however others will hardly notice the shift and it will feel akin to daydreaming. how you experience trance will vary from session to session and also vary with the type of therapeutic work we are doing, some sessions may need an alert awareness yet others may benefit from a deeper more relaxed state of trance. Once in trance the therapeutic work begins, this could be post hypnotic suggestions, analysis, regression, metaphors or visualisation whatever I feel is best suited to you and your goals. Having a wide range of skills and in depth knowledge across the broad field of hypnotherapy allows me to tailor sessions to each clients unique requirements to get the best results.
