What happens in a typical session?
At the start of the session, you relax in a comfortable chair whilst
we discuss what you want to achieve from the session. Once I understand
your desired outcome, we can work towards it using a combination
of clinical hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming, life coaching
and other techniques. You may, or may not, go into a trance during
the session, but you will leave feeling better and different. In
order to help you overcome issues, I do not need to actually know
the issues that are affecting you. This often makes people feel
much more comfortable because they do not need to discuss personal
details with someone and so it relieves potential embaressment.
Quite often in these therapy sessions, you do not even need to
be aware of what the problem is! I work with your sub-conscious
mind, which can mean we work with issues that you are not consciously
aware of. At the end of the session, you will feel refreshed and
energised. You will notice a difference in yourself and your life
after the first session.
Sometimes you may find after the first session you have strange
dreams or feel a bit odd. It is perfectly natural, because you will
have got rid of something you may have been carrying around for
years and its absence and replacement with new patterns will feel
a little different to start with. Just like when you buy a new pair
of shoes they feel strange to start with because they are different.
However, you will soon aclimatise to the changes and discover how
wonderful you feel.
How long is a session?
A session is normally about an hour. Your first session is likely
to be an hour and a half, as you will have a half hour free consultation
at the beginning. Typically a session will last as long as it needs
to. Unlike some therapists, I don't make you leave when your hour
is up. We work together until we reach a convenient point for you
What happens in the free consultation?
The purpose of the free consultation is for you to learn more about
the therapies on offer and to meet me in person. You then get to
discuss the issues you wish to resolve and learn how these can be
resolved. During this half hour, you will get an idea of the number
of sessions, if more than one, that you require and how we are going
to approach the work together. Though you can book your first appointment
at a later date, most people continue from the initial consultation
into their first therapy session.
Can your therapy sessions really help me?
Yes, if you are willing to be helped. There is a common misconception
that when you see a therapist they will make you change. That is
not the case. A therapist acts as a guide to help you make the changes
you desire through their experience and skill. I cannot make you
change, yet if you have the desire to overcome an issue, I can facilitate
that through my experience and knowledge, making the process effective
and easier for you.
Can you really hypnotise me?
About 95% of the population can be hypnotised. You are perfectly
capable of resisting the hypnotic trance if you so desire, but since
we are together to achieve your desire outcome, there is not need
to resist. In some cases you will not even need to go into a hypnotic
trance as other ways will be more effective in providing your desired
Why are your CD's cheaper than some of your competitors?
I firmly believe that the tools for change and overcoming issues
are something everyone should have access to. Some people charge
£20, £30 or more for a CD, which effectively puts them
out of reach for many people. Through this pricing structure, the
CD programs are more affordable for you, allowing you to make the
changes in your life that you want. My goal, through the CD's and
the therapy sessions, is to help you to transform your life and
live your dreams.
How effective are the sessions?
I am dedicated to getting you the results you want. In order to
do this, you need to be willing to change. As the saying goes, you
can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. If, at any
point, I believe you are not willing to change, I will inform you
and we can make a decision on how best to proceed. If you are ready
to change, then you will find your sessions with me surprisingly
How many sessions will I need?
Until we have completed the initial consultation it is hard to
say, as it depends on what you want to change in your life. Some
issues, such as smoking, phobias, panic attacks and so on can be
dealt with in a single session. Others, such as weight issues and
deep seated trauma can take a course of sessions. However, you will
be informed at the start of how many sessions you require. You will
notice a difference even after the first session. My aim is to set
you free, not have you coming to see me every week for months on
end. I want to help you resolve your issues so that you do not need
to rely on regular visits to a therapist. Most issues can be cleared
up in just two or three sessions, though occasionally more will
be required. I would be surprised if you need more than six sessions.
Sessions are always at an interval that is convenient for you.
But does it really work?
Yes. When we work together, you work with someone who is dedicated,
and committed, to doing what it takes to help you get the results
you desire. You will be coached through to the results you need.
You can read the stories of those who have achieved success on the
testimonials page. You too can join
the ranks of the successful through transformational therapy.
I don't live locally, would you travel to see me?
This would depend on where you lived. Usually, I would make a charge
for travel time on top of the session fee. However, if you have
a number of people to be treated during the same visit, then this
additional fee can be waivered.
I would like to attend a course, but can't get to you, what can
You have two options here. Firstly, you can purchase one of the
course recordings, or we can come
to you. If you have a group of five or more people and it is within
reasonable travelling distance. If you are further away then please
contact me for information. Or, you can sign up to one of my free
email courses to get an idea of what to expect and some free
tips and techniques.
