Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, I am working remotely using video link.
Apart from this, we’re ready to go!
Not all sessions will involve hypnotherapy. Some will consist of psychotherapy, counselling, NLP techniques or EMDR and others will incorporate a combination of these.
The length of each session varies but will normally last between 1 and 1½ hours.
First Therapy Session
At the first appointment, I will initially ask you to complete a Client Registration form (unless you have already received one prior to the appointment), which gives me some basic details about yourself. Then we spend as much time as is necessary to talk about what it is you’d like to achieve from the sessions and the therapies which may be most suitable for you. When you’re ready and feel comfortable with everything we’ve talked about, we proceed with the therapy itself.
This appointment tends to be longer than subsequent ones owing to the additional background information I need to obtain from you at the start.
There are several different forms of hypnotherapy. At Inspiring Changes, I predominantly use Ericksonian hypnotherapy, which uses a more informal, conversational approach to induce hypnosis. There are no swinging watches or staring into eyes which can sometimes be associated with hypnotherapy! I simply talk to you until your unconscious feels comfortable about entering a deeply relaxed trance state. Therapeutic suggestions and techniques are then used to change the patterns of behaviour, thoughts and feelings, that you no longer wish to have.
Subsequent Therapy Sessions
Depending on the issue(s) you wish to resolve, a client can expect to need between three and six sessions. However, sometimes just one session is sufficient for effective, permanent change. Similarly, there will be some who require further help and therefore more sessions may be required.
In subsequent sessions we will build on the progress made in previous ones. We will discuss what changes have occurred and how your thoughts, feelings and behaviour have changed in-between appointments. Sometimes new issues may come to light and we can work through those as well to ensure that all issues have been resolved, until no further therapy is required.
In some instance, self hypnosis may be taught to the client in order that they can then use this as and when required.
You are under no obligation to continue therapy and may of course, terminate treatment at any time.
I believe that the trust between client and therapist is crucial to the success of the therapeutic process. All information disclosed is treated as confidential, as is any information discussed in reviews. No details are disclosed to any third party without the client’s permission.
If in my opinion, however, a client is either a danger to themselves or others, or where a criminal offence has been or is about to be committed, I reserve the right to inform appropriate agencies. In addition, confidentiality can only be offered within legal boundaries. It is my practice wherever possible to inform the client first should this confidentiality need to be breached.
I keep brief notes regarding the sessions which you are entitled to see at any time if you so wish. All notes and records are kept securely locked away within the terms of the the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations).
Guarantees are considered irresponsible and disallowed by many of the top hypnotherapy associations, including the GHR with whom I am registered. As a result, I offer no guarantee with any type of therapeutic intervention. Each works differently with different people and at different times. The cost of each session pays for my time. I do, however, assure you that I will work with you to the best of my abilities, applying my years of experience with the aim of achieving the result you are seeking.
