How does online hypnotherapy work?
Online hypnotherapy works very well - many people are surprised by how much they like it. For individuals it works like a face to face session, except I send out a zoom link, and the client finds somewhere comfortable with a good internet connection. We meet ... sometimes a cat joins in ... that's life! In some ways it's even more relaxed than meeting face to face, and you don't have to travel anywhere.
How do online group sessions work?
This is something we trialled during the first lockdown, when we ran sessions for furloughed staff, and also for isolated, anxious people referred to us by GP's and "Social Prescribing" link workers. The groups have a really nice dynamic, creating a feeling of kinship and peer support. It doesn't require people to share anything uncomfortable or negative. Some of the groups don't know each other initially but many of them are still in touch and have become friends. So again, the boundaries are a little different and in some ways it's even more relaxed and relaxing than a private one-to-one session.
