Is hypnotherapy safe?
Yes, hypnotherapy is perfectly safe. So safe in fact that the UK government doesn’t consider a regulatory body necessary. This means that anyone can set up a hypnotherapy practice. However, to gain the benefits of this technique, you should always use a therapist who has undergone a recognised training programme and is a member of at least one professional body. After all, you would not take your car to a self taught mechanic.
Who is hypnotherapy suitable for?
Under normal circumstances, just about everybody. It’s worth noting that hypnosis is not recommended for people who have been drinking alcohol or taking recreational drugs. There are also some forms of psychotic illness that hypnosis is not recommended for, except by a psychiatrist. In general almost anyone can benefit from hypnotherapy.
Am I too young or too old?
My youngest client to date was 6 years old. My oldest has been in their late 70’s. (Please note that I have chosen to no longer work with children under the age of 16.)
Who can be hypnotised?
Anyone who wants to be and no one can be hypnotised against their will.
How many sessions will I need?
Because we are all unique and our problems are too, the ‘right’ number of sessions will depend on your individual needs.
As a rule of thumb most people will attend between 3 and 6 sessions. I will be happy to discuss your individual requirements before beginning any treatment and we will work together to create a plan for your success.
You are never tied into any contracts and are free to stop treatment at any time.
Where are you based?
Consultations are held in the privacy of my home which is situated within walking distance of Worksop town center and very close to both the A60 and A57. The environment is discreet, professional,comfortable and welcoming.
While I would always prefer to work with you in person I do work by video call (zoom, skype etc) and have worked successfully with many clients in this way. Please call me to discuss.
When do you offer appointments?
I offer appointments any weekday between the hours of 9am and 5pm.
I also offer early morning, evening and Saturday appointments on a limited basis. Please call for availability.
