Frequently Asked Questions

Hypnotherapy is a physically relaxed yet mentally alert state in which your conscious mind and unconscious mind become receptive to thinking about things in different ways and letting go of patterns that don’t work. You remain completely aware of what is being said and able to mentally choose the options that are the best fit for you. What hypnosis does best is amplify your abilities, including your hidden abilities, empowering you to fully utilize your natural talents and strengths.
You could say it’s a way of paying attention on multiple levels (conscious, subconscious, memories, imagination, embodied experience) to amplify and utilize your personal resources with a goal in mind. We all experience natural trances when we get lost in reading a good book or watching a movie, or we drive home and realize we cant remember the journey. Sometimes when we daydream we get into a trancelike state. And isn’t that when solutions and great ideas just pop into our minds?
You could say “its not you, it’s the pattern you are running!” This means that once we map your unique pattern your unique solution will emerge. For example, you may continue to live with a chronic condition that requires ongoing medical support but you will live with it in a different, more constructive way. Some clients find re-patterning changes their symptoms. Some clients find re-patterning increases their range of choices.

As well as being Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner, I hold a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have undertaken hundreds of hours of professional development, including specific training in Memory Reconsolidation with international experts. I have experience working with a range of clients from teens through to elders.  If I do not have the professional expertise to work with your particular issue I will let you know. Your well being is my main concern.

No. I create individually tailored recordings for each session based on where we are in the program and what you tell me about your current experience. Scripts are helpful in a general way but they do not address the memory/pattern as it was laid down in YOUR brain. The distinguishing feature of NeuroHypnotherapy is that is attends to you and you alone.

Some clients find a single session brings about the change they are looking for. Most clients find 3-4 sessions are sufficient.
Yes. Combining hypnotherapy and counseling we can unlock and resolve patterns that do not serve you or your relationship. Some patterns you have created together, some patterns you have brought into the relationship from your past, as did your partner. Generally I see couples see together in the first session so we have a chance to get to know each other, you can outline the issues that are of concern, as well as your hopes and goals (both as a couple and individually). If you decide to proceed with couples therapy I offer you a joint hypnotherapy session preparing your relationship for change. The next 2-3 sessions will be individual followed by another couple’s session to evaluate your journey and progress towards your goals.
All the processes I use are safe and evidence based practices in the fields of clinical hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, counseling and NLP. You will leave every session relaxed, alert and able to cope with driving, catching a train, going back to work or meeting friends.
