Frequently Asked Questions

How does Solution Focused Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy work?
Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy that relies on the commitment and motivation from both the therapist and the client to get the best results.  Part of the treatment occurs in the consulting room and part of the treatment is cognitive reflection, homework or behavioral change on the client’s part outside of the sessions.  As the client, when you agree to undertake a course of treatment you also agree to engage with the process, complete any home tasks that you are given and listen to the CD’s at appropriate times.  It is with commitment and partnership working that you will see the best results.

Does Hypnotherapy work online as well as it does face-to-face?
I have worked as a Clinical Hypnotherapist since 2008.  Most of that time I have been  working in my clinic and getting very good results. Now, since 2020 I work a lot online and I am getting the same results.  The only area that changes is it possibly takes slightly longer to build therapeutic rapport, but luckily this comes quite quickly anyway.

You will need to consider where you will be for your online session though. you will probably want to be in a private space where you won't be interrupted. You will also need to have a reasonably good internet connection.

Can I have some face-to-face Hypnotherapy?
It is now possible to have some face to face sessions as the restrictions are easing out.
I will be seeing people face to face from 26th of August 2020. 
There are some important things to consider:
  1. You must not be ill or in the Vulnerable category (check here to make sure you are not a  vulnerable person:
  2. You cannot do online sessions. So, this will apply if you do not have a computer at home or a stable enough internet connection; cannot have enough privacy in your home environment, do not feel safe having therapy at home, or whatever other reason we will discuss.
  3. You are prepared to follow social distancing and related rules within the clinic.
