Hypnotherapy

Is it safe?

Yes! Contrary to popular films and television programmes you must want to be hypnotised. It is a wonderfully relaxing experience. Much like being told a bedtime story when you were a child.

How many sessions will it take?

It very much depends on you, your particular issue, circumstances and determined you are to make a positive change.

As a very rough guide fears and phobias normally take around 3 sessions, anxiety or low mood would normally expect to be around 5 sessions and smoking, only the 1 session!

What does a counsellor do?
