Frequently Asked Questions
What Can You expect at a hypnotherapy treatment?
A first session is to establish the background to the issue that the client wants the therapy for and to establish what they want to achieve through having the sessions. As this is a crucial part of the therapy, it may take up to 30 minutes of the first session. The first hypnotic intervention will take the remainder of the first session, with its main purpose being to relax the client and start the process of making lasting changes. The second and third sessions will build on this accordingly
How many treatments will I need?
I usually recommend at least 3 sessions for most conditions, but some may require more. For anxiety, for example, I usually recommend 4 sessions and matters to do with health may require 4 or more, to establish a new pattern of health.
Will I be aware of what is happening during hypnotherapy sessions?
Absolutely. There is no feeling of ‘losing control’ and you will still be aware of your surroundings to an extent during the therapy. A hypnotic state is a slightly altered state of awareness, more akin to
a meditative or daydream state.
How long does a hypnotherapy session take?
Standard sessions are typically around one hour in length, however, they may often be longer, depending on the complexities of individual sessions. No extra charge is made for any additional time, the most important thing is completing what needs to be completed in the session.
A first session will usually be between 75 and 90 minutes in length, as it will include an in-depth consultation.
Where are the treatments done?
Treatments are usually done at my home in Olton, Solihull, where I have a dedicated treatment room that is separated from the rest of the house and has beautiful garden and sky views.
Address: 34 Dene Court Road, Olton, Solihull, B92 8DL
Or, if travelling to my home is not possible, treatments can be done in the comfort of your own home if you are local to Solihull or South Birmingham, for an extra £5-10 per treatment (depending on distance to travel) to cover additional time and travel expenses incurred.
How early should I arrive before my appointment?
It is best to arrive as close to your appointment time as possible, as I may have other clients booked in either side of your appointment. The treatment room needs to be fully prepared for each client prior to the treatment, so if clients arrive more than a few minutes before the appointment time I may not be ready and there may be no one around to let you in!
Where can I park?
Dene Court Road is a relatively quiet street, so parking is usual possible right outside or very close to the property. If the drive is free, there is usually space for one car for a few hours before 4pm each day.
