WHAT TO EXPECT
Approximately 50 minutes
During the Initial Consultation we will spend the time discussing the reason you are seeking hypnotherapy and what your expectations of hypnotherapy are.
Once I have taken some basic information from you and assessed your case I will spend some time talking to you about the workings of the brain and give you an insight as to why you are suffering and what we can do about it. This is usually when a client has a 'light bulb' moment and becomes excited at how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help them.
I then give you an overview of how we would proceed in the hypnotherapy sessions, including the trance process. which is a far more usual experience than most think.
At this point I would ensure you understand the process and we would discuss your commitment, including an agreed approximate number of sessions you would need. I would also give you my relaxation Cd or a link for the download if you prefer.
This time spent together helps us to develop a bond and form a working relationship, at this point you can decide if you wish to proceed with the treatment process.
Approximately 50 minutes
These sessions are usually made up of 25 minutes of positive communication where we discuss your progress and recap your ultimate goal. You will talk about the positive things that have happened in your week – things that have made you smile or feel good. We will focus on solutions only and will not dwell on any negatives.
I will then help you to imagine the future you envisage, a future where you have a positive perspective on life, where you can think of all there is to look forward to.
Once the therapy part is completed I will guide you through a relaxing journey of Hypnosis where I will use positive suggestions and metaphors to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with a calm, relaxed mind.
When we are in a hypnotic trance we can be more responsive to suggestion, using positive suggestions will help alleviate any negative thought patterns.
It is very common for us to achieve a hypnotic state several times a day - when we are engrossed in a tv programme, when driving on the motorway. I’m sure we have all had that feeling of arriving home and not remembering coming through the town or coming off from the motorway?
The trance session usually lasts 25 minutes, this is hugely relaxing and helps you feel positive and confident and ready to embrace the week ahead.
