How do I know hypnotherapy will work for me?

Hypnotherapy is amazingly powerful at helping people to make rapid changes in their lives.   However falling into hypnosis is only one half of the treatment, for you to get the most out of hypnotherapy it still requires work and commitment on your part (think of it like staying in shape).  I can't just use a magic wand and instantly cure, like with most challenges it will be what you do and think between and after the sessions that will determine the effectiveness of the hypnotherapy.   If you want to see the amazing results of my hypnotherapy clients please see the testimonials section of my website.

Is hypnotherapy suitable for everyone?

Everyone with normal brain function can be hypnotised.  Some people will find it easier to fall into hypnosis than others, but this depends on how easily and quickly a person can reach a state of mental and physical relaxation to allow themselves to be hypnotised.   Hypnotherapy is not suitable for everyone and is not recommended for people suffering from severe depression, personality disorders, dissociative disorders, neurological, intellectual or severe disabilities and dementia.

Is hypnotherapy safe? Will I lose control when in hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy is completely safe and you will be in complete control throughout the entire session.  When in hypnosis I cannot make you do anything you don't want to do and you will remain relaxed and in control throughout our session. You are always leading your mind on the journey, I am only facilitating this process using the techniques I have learnt during my training and past experiences working with clients.  

How long does it take to work?

Everyone is different and some people can respond to treatment much faster than others, many people start seeing results even after a single session.  Some clients need to be seen for just one session (typically smoking) and some slightly longer, most clients generally book in 3-4 sessions.  Ultimately it will depend on the complexity of the problem you wish to solve and the progress you feel you are making after each session together.   Your therapy will be completed when you feel ready and have achieved the results you wished at the beginning of the journey, many clients realise that the solving this problem has a domino effect to other areas of their life too such as self-esteem and confidence.

Where is your clinical hypnotherapy practice located?

I practice at multiple locations depending on what time you book with me.  Currently I am practicing in South London, specifically at two locations one being an 8 minutes walk from Clapham South Underground station or 5 minutes walk from Balham Underground Station.  Details and a map will be provided of either therapy practice when you book any 1-to-1 therapy session with me in your booking email.  You can rest assured that both of my therapy locations offer a peaceful, safe environment, comfortable furniture for you to relax and feel at home.  If you want to drive, there is metered street parking available directly outside my Clapham South therapy practice.

How much do sessions cost?

As with most things quality is often synonymous with price. The more skilled and experienced hypnotherapists tend to charge more. When investing in your health, it is usually better, to go with the hypnotherapist who you feel provides the most value, you feel comfortable and can relate with.  I always try to over-deliver with everyone I work with and your course of therapy includes the following,

  • FREE initial phone consultation session  (typically 15-20 minutes in length)
  • Personally tailored hypnotherapy sessions designed by me
  • A recording of the personalised hypnotherapy from our face-to-face sessions for you to listen to and reinforce what we have learnt
  • Email support throughout your course of hypnotherapy
  • Guides and suggested reading on the relevant issue or problem you are wanting to treat
  • Recommended links to other products or services that I believe will help you and speed up your progress

See my latest pricing on the BOOKINGS page.

What if I need to change or cancel my booking with you?

All bookings you make can be scheduled using the automated booking email sent to you when you first booked your appointment.  Please note that I require at least 48 hours notice to cancel an appointment.  For all paid appointments you will get two reminder emails at 72 and 24 hours before your appointment time. 

Do you offer a guarantee on getting results?

Hypnotherapists like other health professionals cannot guarantee results.  I do however guarantee you will be satisfied with our session together and feel like it has been of value in helping you get closer to your desired result.  If after attending any face-to-face therapy session with me you are unsatisfied with how it went then I will be more than happy to offer another session FREE of charge or refund the cost of the session.  I am giving you a risk free way to see if hypnotherapy will help you, so now you have nothing to lose!
