FAQ’s

What is trance?

Going into trance ( hypnosis)  is almost like having a daydream where we ‘switch off ’ from what is going on around us. However, during this time the brain is actually active, processing information and creatively problem solving.

Is hypnosis safe?

Hypnosis is safe, you are in control at all times and are able to come out of trance whenever you want.

How long is each session?

Sessions lasts between 50 minutes and 1 hour.

What happens in the Initial Consultation?

This is the time for us to get to know each other. During this session we take time to discuss your concerns and find out how I can help you. I will spend time explaining how the brain works in relation to your concerns and what you want to achieve (goals). Hypnosis does not usually take place at this session. I will give you a relaxation recording to listen to each day that will help the process.

How does the relaxation recording help?

Listening to the recording is calming and relaxing. When we are physically relaxed we are mentally relaxed and during this time your mind will be able to focus its attention on the positive messages, helping you to gain new perspectives in facing your challenges. Listening to the recording regularly will support this process.

What happens during subsequent sessions ?

Sessions are roughly divided into two. During the the first half of the session we will focus on talking therapy and talk about the progress you have made and I will be encouraging you to express yourself positively, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems. I will help you to imagine a preferred future, a future where you have a more useful perspective on the quality of your life.  This is followed in the second half of the session with hypnosis. For the hypnosis you will be invited to relax back in a comfortable reclining chair.  I will play some relaxing music and guide you into a relaxed state of hypnosis so that we can consolidate what we have discussed.  Sessions are designed to be positive and uplifting as you move towards achieving your goals.

How many sessions will I need?

You will know when you have reached where you want to be, however, as Solution Focused Hypnotherapy focuses on solutions rather than analysing problems you will notice that positive changes often begin to occur quite early on.
