What to Expect
The initial phone consultation consists of gaining as much information as possible and answering any questions or concerns that you may have. During this phone call, a discussion will take place in regards to your goals for therapy and whether hypnotherapy would be beneficial. If we believe that it is, and you are committed to making a change, then we will book you in for an appointment that is at a convenient time for you.
The first session is a consultation and first treatment session whereby we will explore the issue in detail, gather a detailed case history, create an outcome/goal for the sessions, take down general client information (medications, doctors details etc) and allow you to build up trust in us. The next step will be to conduct a first treatment (this may be some simple techniques or short hypnosis session). This is why the first session can vary between 60-90 minutes in length. Some clients require the full 90 minutes just to explain the issue whereas others may only need 30.
Subsequent sessions will be 60 minutes in length and will focus on reviewing successes or challenges since the last session and conducting relevant treatment.
There is no set number of sessions as each individual case is different. To give you an idea what to expect, most clients will undertake between 3 and 6 sessions depending on their differing needs. We generally suggest that you budget time and money for 3 sessions.
