What Happens in a Session
Each session normally takes an hour and a half and is tailored to you specific requirements. You start by physically relaxing and then I talk you down into an altered state.
Everything disclosed by you to me remains strictly confidential and is not disclosed to anyone without your specific written permission. At all times I adhere to the strict code of ethics of the National Guild of Hypnotists
and the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association

How Many Sessions Should I Expect
The majority of problems can be resolved in anything between two and four sessions. Typically I do not go beyond three sessions. It does depend on how you respond and how difficult your problem is. Hypnotherapy
is a rapid and brief therapeutic technique, and it recognizes that no one wants to spend hard earned money on a therapy any longer than needed. I always use techniques that I deem most appropriate and which enable you to move on as quickly as possible.
I am often asked "can I address more than one problem or issue in the same session"
The answer is "it depends"
. If the problems are reasonably closely related, then often you can address both problems in the same session, and it saves time and money. If, however, the problems are poles apart, then it can be impossible or indeed unwise, as the unconscious mind might get over-burdened, and then neither issue is addressed adequately or solved.
What Can I Do After the Session
Upon request I record a CD, or a tape if you wish, for all hypnosis sessions. This is done with your specific permission and at no extra charge. Many find these useful to review, and can positively reinforce aspects of the session.
I also teach you techniques for use by yourself outside my consulting rooms, including self-hypnosis, which will be beneficial in assisting you reaching the goals that we set at the first session.
Free Initial Consultations
If you are uncertain whether hypnosis and NPL can help your problem, I give a Free Consultation
of up to 45 minutes (except a stop smoking session). At the end of the consultation, you will be able to come to an informed decision as to whether you wish to proceed.
If you decide to proceed, I will normally schedule another appointment, but sometimes I can proceed straight away. After the consultation I’m able to give you an idea of how many hypnosis sessions you may require.
