What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a beneficial way to assist you to achieve positive changes and alterations in your life in a more comfortable manner.
It's about you gaining control over those thoughts behaviours or parts of your life that seem out of control.
Hypnosis is completely natural and normal. All hypnosis is self hypnosis. We dip into and out of  this state each day so it feels natural and normal. 
 The state of hypnosis allows us to access the subconscious. Through hypnosis we can often find the root cause of a problem and deal with it for good.
Hypnosis has been officially recognized by both the English and American medical associations and is recognized as a good supportive option to help manage I.B.S., psoriasis and eczema as well as habits, fears and phobias etc. 

Can I be hypnotised? 
If you can understand and follow instructions you'll be fine. 
-Have the intent and allow it to happen.
We naturally pass through the hypnotic state when waking or drifting off to sleep and alsowhen daydreaming or getting really involved in watching a movie or reading a book. If you
 have ever driven somewhere and thought. "I'm here, but I don't remember a particular part of the journey." You were in that same state - it is normal and natural. 
How many sessions will I need? 
     It is completely understandable that you want to know this.  It is a bit like phoning a mechanic and asking him how long it will take to fix your car without telling him whether it won't start, if it's leaking, has a flat tyre or if it has been in an accident. A mechanic also needs to know make and model...  

Expect to feel improvement after the first session. Be open, engage with the process, follow instructions and be prepared to change. Hypnosis can have magical results but it is not a 
magic wand. I cannot make you (or anyone else) do anything other than what you (or they) want to 

Generally, 3 -5 sessions are sufficient with most people and most issues although some people do achieve their desired outcomes in 1 or 2 sessions.  

All sessions are personalised to you and your desired outcomes so it's not one session for this desired outcome and three sessions for another. We are all different. We can vary in our 
needs and respond to things in different ways. 

Will I be made to do anything I don’t want to?
The person being hypnotized ( that's you) is in complete control. I'm merely a facilitator.  It’s not possible to make someone do anything they don't want to or that is contrary to their own values or ethics. Nor would you say anything you would not want the therapist to hear

How Long is a Session? 
A first session is about 90 minutes in length. 
Subsequent sessions are usually around 60 minutes in length. Children's sessions can be shorter but it is very difficult to give an exact length. To be safe I ask that you allow up to 90 minutes per session. Please be on time. Please inform me if you have to be away by a fixed time.

What does it feel like? The short answer is it feels very normal and natural and is very pleasant. There is no one "hypnotised feeling" what you feel is personal to you. -
Some people say it'like daydreaming or zoning outYou are not asleep but instead are relaxed with a sometimes unexpected sense of awareness. You're in full control
 and can hear all that is being said to you. 
Some folks say they experience a heaviness or lightness or tingling and some say they feel just nicely r-e-l-a-x-e-d. One client calls it  a 'Massage for the Mind'.


How long do the effects of hypnotherapy last?

The effects are usually lasting and actually don't ‘diminish’ over time. The more you engage the changes and deal with the difficult situation, the stronger the effects (and you) will become. Your new success in dealing with difficult things reminds your sub-conscious mind that things have changed.

Can I fix this as well as something else at the same time?

In hypnotherapy we address one topic at a time. Working on this and that other thing splits your intent. For example, if a client has a fear of flying, as well as a habit of over eating, each would be dealt 

with separately and at a different time. 

Of course, some issues can be related and sometimes clients have even found one problem resolves itself as the other is dealt with. Other times there is no connection and issues need

addressing separately.


If I am with a client, please clearly 
leave your name and number on the answer machine and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.
