Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Initial Consultation (IC)?
The IC is the introductory session and in it we will note down your details, discuss a very brief medical history and discuss your best hopes from your sessions (the solution). We will then have a look at how our brains work and what’s happening in relation to your situation in a simple, understandable way.
I will explain the process going forward and give a rough estimate on how many sessions will be required for you to achieve the outcome.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is another name for ‘Trance’.
If I was to ask you now “what did you eat for breakfast 2 days ago?” it is likely you will look away from your screen, possibly in to space, while you recollect and ponder the question. This is a very basic level of trance.
We enter a trance state many times a day, the most common and relatable is when we are driving. How many times have you arrived at a destination or completed a section of a journey and have little recollection of that journey? This is simply because you have temporarily entered a trance-state.
In a clinical setting, the relaxed mind is much more open to suggestion and we use this to illicit positive change in your thought patterns.
