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 all have different hopes, dreams, fears and motivations, so a course of hypnotherapy or talking therapy sessions needs to be tailored to you and your situation.
In between your sessions, you may be given tasks to do such as listening to a CD or MP3, keeping a diary or another task to enable you to develop new resources for the future.
If you’re seeking hypnotherapy or talking therapy to help you overcome a problem or issue, the first step is to book an initial consultation.
Before your appointment
When you book an initial consultation, you will receive an information form to complete before your appointment. The information you provide enables me to tailor your therapy sessions to you and your experiences.
During your consultation
We will go through the information you have provided on your form and identify any problems or beliefs that may be contributing to the situation that you would like to change, as well as exploring the issue in more depth.
Following your consultation
As part of your consultation, we will explore what you wish to achieve from therapy as well as discussing the most appropriate therapy options for you. If you wish to continue with therapy, further appointments can be booked.
No two people are the same. Although we may experience similar problems, the reason why and how it affects each person will vary. Each individual course of therapy is just as unique too.
During your sessions, you will be sitting on a comfortable chair or sofa. You will remain in control throughout and will be able to hear everything that is said. As part of the session, I often use background music to help you relax and enter a natural hypnotic trance.
Talking Therapy Sessions
Appointments take place in a comfortable therapy room either at the Tower Clinic in Cookridge, or at the clinic in Leeds city centre. The most appropriate type of therapy for you depends largely on your situation and the issue you would like to address.
Each session lasts approximately 50 minutes in order to maintain concentration levels and get the best from the process. The number of sessions required varies from person to person, depending on the problem or issue and the type of therapy used.
Successful therapy is all about taking the progress you make during your sessions and transforming it into real life change.
In between appointments, you may receive an MP3 or CD to listen to, or another task to complete such as keeping a diary. These are designed to work alongside your sessions and are an important part in your therapy process.
Motivation & Participation
Hypnotherapy and talking therapy are about working together to make the changes that you need to achieve the outcome that you want. It is a two-way process where your participation is the key to your success.
The outcome of hypnotherapy and talking therapy depends on what you put into it. The therapist is your guide; they can give you directions and show you how to get to your destination, but you need to play your part too.
