Sessions We work with adults and children from 8 years old. A useful first step is to make contact by phone or email and we can discuss what you'd like to achieve and answer any questions you may have. You are very welcome to come in and talk to us in person too if you like. Once you are ready we can make an appointment for an initial consultation. 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, but not required to participate.
An initial consultation takes about 40-50 minutes. We'll assess what you want to achieve and explore together how hypnotherapy can help. If you are on any medication we will talk about how hypnotherapy can complement this. We recommend talking to your GP as well.
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 specific aspects of it, before guiding you into hypnosis, which helps to cement the ideas and set the subconscious mind working towards them.
Sessions take place at our practice at 1 Towan Heights, Newquay. We also offer sessions online which just requires a good internet connection and somewhere quiet and comfortable to sit. We are fully accredited, registered, DBS-checked and insured.
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, free from anxiety, depressed feelings or anger. 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.
