Frequently Asked Questions...

Here are some of the most common questions I’m asked, let’s face it, we all have them.


Is trance the same as sleep?

Sleep and trance are two different experiences! When you sleep, you aren’t aware of anything apart from maybe your dreaming, and on occasion, being woken by a snoring partner! If you do fall asleep, well, hat doesn’t matter because your subconscious never sleeps anyway, and this is where change happens!


How many sessions will I need?

Many people ask how long will I need therapy for? This is really is dependant on individual needs. As solution focused hypnotherapists, we work really fast because we are focusing on the preferred future, not focusing on the problem. I encourage my clients to book in for five consecutive weekly sessions, and at that point you will know if more work needs to be done. Some clients are fixed after as little as two sessions! Stop smoking is just one session up to two hours. Fears and phobias can be fixed in as few as 3/4 sessions.

Terms and Conditions

The initial consultation is a time to meet and chat informally about the suitability of hypnotherapy. At this free session, I will explain in more detail how hypnotherapy works. Its also a time for you to evaluate if we could work together.

As my practice is very busy, I ask you to give at least 48 hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment. Missed appointments will be charged at the full rate.

Please ensure you are on time for your appointments as I normally see clients back to back, meaning the time of your session will be reduced.
