During the Initial Consultation, we will discuss what you want to change and I will collect important information from you to enable me to tailor the subsequent therapy to your needs. I will also, very importantly, explain how the brain works, why issues arise in the way that they do and how we will work together to help you achieve your goals in life. There is no hypnosis during this initial session but I will give you a relaxation CD to listen to at home which will help us make progress more quickly.
During subsequent sessions we will spend some time talking carefully about your progress and what changes you still wish to make before getting you on the couch where you will spend approximately 30 minutes in a relaxed state of hypnosis. During hypnosis, your state of relaxation will allow us to access the subconscious mind which helps to make the changes you want to see happen in a positive and calm way.
Smoking Cessation is a single 2 hour session during which we will spend approximately half the time in discussion and half in hypnosis.
