How Long is Each Session?

Each session is around 60mins, unless otherwise agreed upon. 

What Can I Expect In Each Session?

The first session always consists of an introduction and an intake assessment, in order to get to know you, and create a deeper understanding of what you’d like to achieve.

I then take you through a few simple and fun exercises to help me determine your powers of concentration and imagination, what subject ‘type’ you are and what the best ways to integrate your goals into your subconscious may be. We then normally have a short session, taking you into a light level of trance and testing the waters, so to speak. 

After this, having met you, integrated your intentions and performed a brief session, we begin stabilization work. (See FAQ ‘How Many Sessions Are Required?’) 

Moving forward, I will outline for you where we’re at, and what you can likely expect in the next session. It truly becomes an organic process from here on out. If we maintain good rapport along the way, and you are honest with me (as much as you’d like to be; even under hypnosis, you don’t and won’t tell me anything you don’t want to) then we can count on the timeline dictating itself in as clear a manner as possible. 

How Many Sessions Are Required?

As with so many things in Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, this completely depends on you.

While the initial consultation and first session are often very similar in terms of structure and the techniques used, this inevitably evolves. Every person is different.

As a basic guide, however, there are three general phases. The first is stabilization, in order to make sure you’re ready for the changes you’d like to see, and to find where your footing is most solid as we set the pacing. 

Then comes the actual change-work, and then, maintenance, with this last phase hopefully extending to a point where you are free from having to visit me at all!

Believe it or not, all of this can happen in one session alone! (Albeit after the initial consultation and usually in a session longer than an hour.) Or, the process can stretch out to six months or more.

The primary thing is that we move at a pace that will be most beneficial to you, over the long-term.

Can Sessions Be Done Over Phone or Video?

Video, yes. Phone, no. The reason for this is it is important for me to visually track certain physical cues (eyelid fluttering, swallowing, pulse rate, etc.) to gain an accurate assessment of your level of trance, what is working and what isn’t, and many other subtle cues as the session progresses. 

Obviously this is much easier done in person, however, given the now nearly universal use of video agents, I’ve learned to do just as good a job over video. If you’d like your consultation to be over video, it’s as simple as noting this in the box provided when you’re booking. I’ll then simply send you a link to use on the day of the appointment.

In-home visits are also available for those who may be unable to travel or use video, however there are some additional costs. Again, please indicate this as your preference in the box provided when booking.
