Common Questions

Hypnotherapy london

Can anyone be hypnotised?

One of the most common questions. Anyone can be hypnotised if they want to be. We experience this natural state of mind all the time; if you’ve ever day dreamed, or become so absorbed in a book or film that you lose track of time, you have experienced a state similar to hypnosis. People cannot however, be hypnotised if they don’t want to be, since the individual remains in control at all times.

Where do you hold clinics?

I practice hypnotherapy in London.

Will I lose control during hypnotherapy?

No.

You remain relaxed and in control throughout. You are always in charge; the therapist only facilitates this process. During hypnotherapy, you will not be made to do anything you do not want to do. Hypnotherapy differs from stage hypnotism in that hypnotherapy empowers the client and the client’s best interests are at heart. It’s a feeling of relaxed focus, a bit like daydreaming.

What if I’m still undecided

If you still have questions about hypnotherapy give me a call or book in a FREE half an hour initial assessment to meet face to face. You can ask any questions you have and decide if I’m the right therapist for you.

 What are you like as a therapist?

My approach is caring and effective and I enjoy excellent results. My goal is to support you in reaching your goal in the shortest time possible to produce long lasting change that gets the the root of the issues your experiencing. Your needs always come first and you will be listened to and treated as an individual. I am here for you.

Does hypnotherapy work?

Yes, hypnotherapy can be amazingly powerful at helping people to make the changes they want to make in their lives. However it is not a miracle cure, it still requires work and commitment on your part. I don’t  snap my fingers and ‘cure’ you. It is a partnership where  myself and the client work together to overcome an issue. See testimonials  or my google reviews and my videos  for what others have said about hypnotherapy with me.


What does hypnotherapy feel like?

It feels great! It is a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable experience. Some clients describe it as being like an enjoyable daydream, and some enjoy it so much that they want to stay for longer in that relaxed state. You remain aware and in control at all times and leave relaxed yet alert.

 

How does stage hypnotism compare to hypnotherapy?

Stage hypnotists thoroughly vet their participants before hand – they choose extroverts who want to perform on the stage and who would not embarrass themselves or the hypnotist by not playing along. Since hypnosis cannot make someone do something they do not want to do, the participant subconsciously wants to do as the hypnotist asks and play along. Although this can demonstrate the power of hypnosis, it differs from hypnotherapy in a number of ways. Hypnotherapy aims to get to the root cause of your issue or problem, and I work with you to empower you and help you to make these changes. Your best interests are always at heart, and your integrity is of the utmost importance.

How much do you charge?

Lets have a chat to help you decide if hypnotherapy is right for you and if I’m the right therapist. There’s no hard sell and I’ll be happy to answer as many questions as you like. If I don’t think hypnotherapy is right for you or your issue I won’t take you on as a client but may be able to advise you on another type of therapy.

How many sessions will I need?

For stopping smoking 1 or 2 sessions are usually required, of around 1.5 hours. For most other issues my clients are happy with the results after around 3-5 sessions. It can really depend on the complexity of the problem and the number of sessions can be agreed by the client and myself together. Therapy will be completed when you feel ready and have achieved the results you desire.

How do sessions generally run?

Usually the first session is an initial assessment; it’s important to find out as much information as possible and to find the root cause of what you’re experiencing so that a treatment plan can be tailored especially for you. After that, during hypnosis, you’re conscious mind will get into a relaxed state and I will give your subconscious mind helpful suggestions designed to help you to make positive changes.

Stopping Smoking is run over 1 or 2 sessions and costs £450. If you’re serious about giving up, you’ll leave my therapy room as a non smoker.

Can you guarantee results?

I don’t guarantee results since I cannot take full responsibility for the changes you make. I can however, guarantee that you will be satisfied with how our session together goes. If you are unsatisfied with how the  session session went I will be happy to offer a session free of charge or a refund on the session.
