Have you thought about what to expect during your first hypnotherapy session?
Your first session will be just like any other – awesome!
This page will give you more detail about what to expect on your first session and you can see how many sessions you may need by watching the video below.
What happens before your first session
Before we can do your first session we need to do what we call an intake.
An intake is simply an informal chat where we get to know each other a bit and discuss what the problem is. You don’t have to tell me the issue if you don’t want, we can do what we call “content free” sessions where we fix the problem without me ever knowing what it was.
I currently offer a 20 to 30 minute intake for free before booking in paid sessions. This makes sure we’re happy to work together and that you have an issue I can help with.
There is no hypnosis on the intake. It’s just to get more details.
What happens on your first session
OK so the intake is done and we’re both happy to proceed.
Next we arrange a time for your session and you send the payment over.
Your first session can be as soon as the next day depending on how busy I am.
Experiencing hypnosis for the first time
You’ll experience hypnosis on each session after the intake, providing you have no health issues that would stop it such as on my page of important things to know.
You’ll get to see how it feels to be in the lovely state we call hypnosis and learn how it’s nothing to be worried about. The only problem most people have is that they don’t want to come out of it because it’s so peaceful.
Most people leave their first session full of excitement and can’t wait to come back for more.
Your second session and beyond
In the second full session we really start getting to grips with the issue.
We’ll be using techniques designed to locate the cause of it and change the way you think about whatever is bothering you.
You may find that your issue goes after session two and that’s it – job done!
If not then we continue using various methods on future sessions until we achieve the result you want.
People often want to come back and work on other issues or come back for general sessions to boost their confidence.
I also offer life coaching where I help you achieve goals such as changing your job, moving house or whatever you want to achieve.
How many sessions do I need?
It usually takes between 2 to 6 hours to fix most problems. Some issues like weight loss can be a longer term thing but not always – it’s different for everyone.
Hypnosis is like any other skill in that it gets easier to use the more you do it. It’s unrealistic to expect to experience hypnosis and be able to fix a problem all in one hour! It takes a little time to build up to the stage where we fix the issue and it often needs approaching from various angles with various techniques.
I always aim to give you the best therapy that will work in the minimum number of sessions but there is no method that works for everyone all the time. I wish there was, it would make my life much easier.
I’ll teach you how to hypnotise yourself and I often have video guides, handouts or help sheets for you. You’ll also get the audio of your session so you can listen to it as many times as you like.
