A consultation is an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable interacting with me and vice versa. It also provides a one-to-one situation to talk about the issues you would like help with and ask any questions before booking therapy sessions with me.
Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation that allows the subconscious mind to be more easily communicated with, the trained hypnotherapist is then able to utilize this state to encourage changes that are beneficial to the person seeking change.
Yes! as long as the individual is willing to be guided into a hypnotic state at the time and they also 'want' to make changes.
No, during hypnosis a person is actually in a heightened state of awareness and focus and able to open their eyes and end the session at any time. No one can be made to do or say anything they wouldn't normally do or say under hypnosis.
Ever driven somewhere and not remembered part of the journey?
have you ever sat and watched a movie that has drawn you in so much that you lost track of time and awareness of your surroundings until the end of the movie?
Well that's just two examples of a trance state, hypnosis is being guided into a 'trance state'.
that will depend on a few factors but we can discuss that at your, free, half hour consultation. Rest assured most issues can be identified and resolved within quite few sessions. I prefer to build my practice on word-of-mouth referrals, not keeping people in therapy.
