In the first session a medical history will be taken, and a discussion on what the issues are, and any goals, if you have them. Together, a plan will be agreed on the treatment required. A full explanation of hypnosis is given, and, if appropriate,  a session of hypnotherapy will be carried out.

What is hypnotherapy?

It is believed that the sub conscious mind is more readily accepting of positive suggestions. Therefore we are aiming to relax the mind, to allow the subconscious to listen. Each session is tailored to you from information we have discussed during the sessions. You will be encouraged to relax, while listening to the positive suggestions being given to you. Many people worry about being in a “trance”. A trance is merely a very relaxed state. To begin with, you may feel a bit anxious, but with practice, most people find it an enjoyable experience.
