What is the difference between hypnotherapy and psychotherapy?
I have tried to solve the problem myself and so have others, how can you help?
What is hypnotherapy?
You will not fall asleep or go unconscious, if you did you would not hear anything! It is a bit like daydreaming. I will use hypnotherapeutic techniques to guide you to make your own beneficial changes. You will not be asked to speak, just listen.
Lots of therapies claim they can fix the problem in one session can you?
My approaches are low on psycho-babble, high on common sense and long term effectiveness. I post a link here of a Scotsman newspaper reporter I helped in one session overcome here fear of spider.
How quickly can I arrange an Hypnotherapy appointment?
I try to see you within three days of the initial contact as I know that you want to get better quickly.
I consult from 9.00 am until 7.00 pm Mondays to Saturdays.
I am available to present my British Psychological Society accredited seminar REBT: An Interpretation of its Theory and Practice with Hypnotherapy, please inquire.
How do I contact you?
What are your fees?
Cancellation policy: I require 48 hours notice otherwise full fee is payable.
How many Hypnotherapy sessions will I need?
I would hope for significant improvement within one to three Hypnotherapy sessions, however the honest answer is, it takes as long as it takes, I use an indirect approach in hypnotherapy and often the results can be experienced once your unconscious has processed the information .
How is your approach different from others?
It is educational and kept very much in the present and I do not make unrealistic claims.
