Sessions An initial consultation lasts 40-50 minutes. Here we will assess what you want to achieve and explore how hypnotherapy can help. Subsequent sessions last 50 minutes and work well at weekly intervals. The total number of sessions will vary between 1 (to stop smoking), 4 (for specific phobias) and anything from 6 to 12 or more, depending on the objectives. Sessions begin with discussing progress and encouraging positive thought. We then encourage you to view your life from the perspective of your preferred future and identify a clear picture of some of the steps towards it, before guiding you into hypnosis, which helps to cement the ideas.
Sessions take place at our practice at 1 Towan Heights, Newquay. We also offer sessions via Skype or FaceTime, which just requires a good internet connection your end and somewhere quiet and comfortable to sit. If you are on any medication we will talk about how hypnotherapy can complement this. We recommend talking to your GP as well. We are fully accredited, registered, DBS-checked and insured.
For children we suggest two separate initial consultations, first with a parent (free of charge) and then with the child. A parent is required to attend all sessions in person, but not required to participate.
Further details on the process and some of its applications are described in our interview with PirateFM:
Fees Hypnotherapy is an investment and the rewards are high - namely the freedom to enjoy life and achieve your goals. Successful treatment does require a commitment and people must want to change - it's not magic and no one can do it for you. At the same time, the process is straightforward and enjoyable and we aim to make it as easy and as fast as possible.
Each session or initial consultation costs £70. Smoking cessation is done in one session of 90-120 minutes, and costs £150.
