How do I choose the right hypnotherapist?
The key to successful therapy is finding the right therapist for you. However good a therapist is, it is the relationship that determines whether you trust them enough, and they come to understand you enough, to help you explore and find solutions for your problem.
What is the cost per session?
Prior to commitment, it would be beneficial to determine whether we can work together and therefore happy to discuss your goals and therapy via phone or online. Sessions are £45 (concessions available) regardless of issue, so call me on 01344 723151 or email PathTherapy@live.co.uk for an appointment.
How many sessions will I need?
For some issues you could see improvement within a few session while more complex matters may take longer to resolve. At the onset we can identify the method and work required so you can judge how long you need. We will review progress regularly, but it’s up to you.
There are some specific issues, such as performance improvement, phobias and habits, that could be completed based on a 3-session plan. This is something we can discuss during our first session.
What happens when I arrive for my first appointment?
It is a good idea to arrive a few minutes early, to make sure your appointment can start on time. If you arriving by car you can park ( for free ) right outside the Egremont building inner entrance and press the buzzer labelled “PathTherapy” which will ring through to the therapy rooms. You will be greeted by a receptionist or myself and shown straight to the therapy room where the session can begin.
Your first appointment will be a consultation meeting. It is a two way process. It will be an opportunity me to get to know you, your concerns and hopes about therapy. You can find out about what hypnotherapy and hypno-psychotherapy has to offer. You can ask questions, if you want to, about the therapeutic service and process.
I understand how difficult it can be to ask for help and talk about your problems and express your feelings particularly to someone you have just met. At no point would I expect you to do or say anything that you are not comfortable doing. You are in control of the pace at which things happen. I believe in working towards a place of mutual respect and trust. From that place change is possible.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes, they can wait in the reception area. However, I would recommend you do this only if you deem necessary. However, you may find this distracting, which invades the safe environment, but it’s up to you.
What times are appointments available?
Sessions run day, evening and weekends. You can contact me for availability.
Can you provide me references/testimonials?
I dont publish testimonials because they are considered unethical by many therapy related bodies (For example, the UK Council for Psychotherapy) particularly as they could be fabricated and the Advertising Standards Authority require them to be verifiable which conflicts with the confidentiality of clients. I recognise many directories and social media sites do allow for reviews, and I would recommend caution before publishing personal information.
I recognise that clients will want reassurance about my experience and qualifications which are described here. Prior to any commitment, the first session is free to determine whether it would be beneficial for us to work together.
Where can I find you?
I am located in Bracknell. My location details are shown here.
Do you offer Skype or home based therapy?
Yes, this is possible dependending on the issue(s) you wish to explore and the therapeutic approach we adopt.
How long does each hypnotherapy session last?
Each session will last 50 minutes but a maximum of one hour.
I have some further questions?
You can contact me via form message, email or phone. Whichever you prefer.
