Will it be like the hypnosis I see in stage shows?

Hypnotherapy is very different from stage hypnosis. Even though the two have some methods and principles in common, stage hypnosis uses psychological tricks often paired with sleight of hand or clever illusions. Not so clinical hypnotherapy.

And you won't be asleep during hypnosis; you can come out of it at any point if you decide to do so. You cannot get stuck and no-one can take over your will. Mostly you will remember everything that happened whilst you were in hypnosis.

My role is that of a guide or coach: my hypnotic suggestions stimulating your imagination and leading you to achieve personal transformation.

What is happening during a session?

We will spend the first part of each session examining your thoughts, behaviours, and feelings and look at their impact on the issues you would like to address. Then we will spend 20-30 minutes working in hypnosis. You will feel deeply relaxed and in a receptive mind set which enables you to rehearse new behaviours and thinking patterns on an internal, but 'experiential' level, involving all your senses. The final 10 minutes we will use to reflect on the work done and look at what to do next.

What is my role during treatment? What do I have to do?

The success of hypnotherapy depends on your collaboration and willingness to engage. The more open and receptive you are, the more you will benefit from the therapy. Your honesty is crucial to the treatment's success.

The hypnotherapy sessions will give you a confidential space in which you can safely practice different coping strategies and new skills and behaviours.

How many sessions are needed?

This depends on the particular issue and the individual. Even just one session can create positive change, but mostly a series of three to six sessions will bring the desired outcome and give enough room to get to underlying root causes, help deepen the transformative process and ensure lasting change.

In the first session we will undertake an in-depth assessment which is vital to agree on treatment goals, enable us to monitor progress and keep the amount of sessions to a minimum.
