You lie in bed getting more and more frustrated because yet again, you can’t sleep. Or if you’re lucky enough to fall asleep, you know that you’ll soon be awake again. Night after night of listening to the silence, or perhaps even worse, the sound of a ticking clock.
Insomnia & Sleep Issues
There are many reasons why we sometimes experience difficulty in sleeping at night. Stress is often one of the main causes, but other things such as background noise, the room being too hot or too cold, an uncomfortable bed, pain or having too much caffeine from drinks such as tea or coffee just before going to bed, can all make it more difficult to fall asleep. Insomnia can be a vicious cycle of stress, not sleeping and getting stressed about not sleeping.
The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Many people have found hypnotherapy helpful for insomnia and sleep problems and talking with someone who is impartial and non-judgmental can help you to overcome your sleep issues. Working with your subconscious mind, hypnotherapy can help you to break the cycle by addressing the cause and enabling you to relax and get a better night’s sleep.
What to expect
The first step is to book an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss your situation in more detail as well as answering any questions you may have and deciding on the best options for you. We will also do some hypnosis, if appropriate, to introduce you to hypnotherapy and help you prepare for future sessions. Many people find between 3 to 6 hypnotherapy sessions helpful and occasionally further sessions may be required.

Before your appointment
When you book your initial consultation, you will receive an email containing your appointment details, along with a link to pay the deposit which is required to confirm your appointment booking. The deposit is payable within 48 hours of booking your appointment and is refunded at or following your final session, subject to the terms in the Client Agreement. Appointments are only confirmed once the deposit has been received.
The email will also contain a link to the online information form which you will need to complete before your appointment. It is important that you provide as much detail as you can on the form because this gives me more information about what you would like help with and enables me to prepare for your appointment.
A map and travel information is also available on the locations page.
During your appointment
Your initial consultation is about building a good overview of your situation and what you would like to change. We will discuss a number of things including:
- The issue(s) that you would like help with
- Your goal(s)
- Health, medical, personal, past history and other relevant issues
- Appropriate therapy options for your situation
- Practical details and your role in the therapy process
- Self help and/or therapeutic tasks between sessions
- Answering any questions you may have
Your initial consultation also includes your first therapy session. The type of therapy used will depend on your situation, but the main purpose of this first session is to familiarise you with therapy and begin your journey towards where you want to be.
