Can I see you before making an appointment?
Yes, I’m happy to offer a free 20 minute consultation.
What happens during a session?
Firstly, I ask you to fill in a form. Then we would have a chat about what goal you would like to achieve. Usually I would then use a hypnocom machine which plays music and I say a few things which puts you in a nice relaxed trance. When in this relaxed state, I make some positive suggestions to your subconscious mind to help reach your goals. Finally, I say some things to bring you round to be fully awake.
What is trance?
Trance is an altered state of consciousness, where the subconscious mind is more open to receiving positive messages.
Can I go into trance?
Yes, almost anyone can go into trance, although some people are naturally more open to it than others.
Will I be made to do anything I don’t want to?
No. In trance state, you are still awake and therefore you are still in control.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes of course.
How long are sessions?
Sessions last up to an hour.
How many sessions will I need?
Stephen aims to keep sessions to a minimum; sometimes issues can be resolved in only one session.
Is it safe?
Yes. Though for certain conditions I may ask you to bring a letter from your GP. Hypnotherapy is not recommended for people with psychosis or epilepsy.
What if I need to cancel an appointment?
Sometimes things happen and you do need to cancel. I do request that you give me at least 24 hours notice.
If you have any other questions or would just like to have a chat with Stephen about how he might be able to help, then get in touch.
