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.

Trance is an altered state of consciousness, where the subconscious mind is more open to receiving positive messages.

Yes, almost anyone can go into trance, although some people are naturally more open to it than others.

No. In trance state, you are still awake and therefore you are still in control.

Yes of course.

Sessions last up to an hour.

Stephen aims to keep sessions to a minimum; sometimes issues can be resolved in only one session.

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.

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.
