Questions and Answers

What happens next?

Every new client will be booked in for an initial consultation to discuss in more detail what your needs are, to answer any questions you may have and confirm terms of working. This also gives you the opportunity to meet me and decide whether I am the right therapist for you.

You will be emailed an intake form to complete with payment details. Appointments will only be confirmed once payment has been received. 

Are you accredited and insured?

Yes I am fully insured and accredited through the National Hypnotherapy Society and The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society. This means I comply with there code of ethics, which includes supervision and continued professional development throughout the year.

How do you work with children?

I work in the same way as adults except parents may be present during the hypnotherapy sessions with the child’s consent if this is useful to aid relaxation. 

Anything discussed will be completely confidential except for legal responsibilities set out by the code of ethics which are detailed in the contract. 

Please be aware that I will only work with someone who is fully engaged in the process and consents to therapy and this will be confirmed at the initial consultation.

Will Hypnotherapy work?

Hypnotherapy is an incredible tool that can help you in many areas but like all treatments its not a guaranteed cure or a magic wand. Results vary and this depends on your motivation and commitment to the treatment. This is because we are complicated beings and react in different ways to different experiences and this can change and develop during our sessions. It’s a work in progress and we will be working together to reach your goals.

What does hypnotherapy feel like?

Its different for everyone, some experience a light trance like a day dream and others feel a deeper relaxation. Its a very natural relaxing state of consciousness to access the part of your brain where all your thought processes, conditioned responses and behaviours are stored. By accessing this database of ‘You’, we can amend and retrain the brain to think and act in more positive ways and get rid of the unwanted behaviours and feelings that are not benefitting you anymore. You will not be asleep, I will not make you cluck like a chicken and you will be in total control at all times. How deeply will depend on how relaxed you are.

What is included in the hypnobirthing course?

All course manuals for home practice, 5 relaxation audios to prepare for birth, Hypnobirthing book, birth preferences template and affirmation cards. As a trained hypnotherapist I can also offer extra support for morning sickness, breech babies, birth trauma resolve, emotional wellbeing and relaxation. These are private courses so completely tailored to your specific circumstances and includes email support between sessions should you need any more information or if your circumstances change. Suited for anyone who is feeling anxious about their birth or prefer private sessions rather than attending a group course.

There are 4 sessions provided over 4 weeks. Sessions are currently offered online or in person.
