Sessions

I am happy to offer clients the opportunity to access help for issues such as anxiety and stress with online video support from the comfort of their own homes. With a warm, caring approach underpinned with a solid strategy that delivers results, we work together to help you learn how to improve your mental health.  

First steps

The first step is to book a consultation and assessment on Zoom Pro with business broadband. The consultation is an opportunity to see if we can work together. It is a relaxed Q&A, a discussion of the issues for which you are seeking help. After the consultation, I will email you a Guided Meditation MP3 produced by an award-winning BBC Radio Producer. The Guided Meditation enables you to relax, improves your sleep quality, and consolidates the work that we are doing together in the sessions.

The subsequent sessions are generally split into two parts. The first part of the session is a discussion based on Solution-focused questions and techniques which are positively directed and goal-oriented. The intention is to allow a perspective shift by guiding you in the direction of hope and optimism to support you on your path of positive change. The second part is where we use Hypnosis, a relaxing trance state where your imagination can be guided and shaped to enable you to achieve the outcome you want.

Relevant, supporting resources are often emailed to you to help inform and support you between appointments. Each session lasts 55 minutes, called ‘The Counselling Hour’, and the number of sessions required is ascertained in the first appointment, with 9-12 being the average requirement.

Hypnotherapy is a safe, reliable treatment method for many problems, has no harmful side effects and is suitable for just about everybody. Hypnotherapy is effective; however, results may vary, and success is not guaranteed. Therefore, full client commitment is essential. Just as it requires effort to build and maintain physical health, so it is with mental health.

It is advised that you consult your doctor before engaging in complementary or supplementary therapy, including Hypnotherapy. If you are seeking help with a medical problem, Hypnotherapists work in addition to your medical team, and it’s always best that you check with them first before embarking on a course of Hypnotherapy.

Your sessions are not recorded, and no photos or screenshots are taken, and I politely ask my clients to honour this agreement.

Although online Zoom support offers more flexibility around time and schedules, the client is expected to have the same commitment to online therapy as face-to-face appointments. Therefore, punctuality and commitment and honouring the cancellation policy are just as important when accessing help via online Zoom sessions.

Disclosure of all information during therapy and consultations remains confidential unless there is a risk of harming yourself or others. Please be aware that I may discuss your case in supervision sessions. I will not identify you in these sessions.
