This information applies to all the different types of sessions we provide. I focus on hypnosis on this page because of its high demand. 

What to expect from your first session

What happens in a hypnosis session

Hypnotherapy is a partnership based on co-operation between therapist and client to achieve the changes you want. In general, hypnotherapy is effective in a few sessions, with most clients seeing solid change towards their goals with between 2-5 sessions (depending on the issue/s).

The key points to remember about hypnosis and hypnotherapy are:

  • You are always in control of the session, and can snap out of the trance at any time, if you need to.
  • You cannot be made to say, do or reveal anything against your will.
  • You allow yourself to go into the trance, to the level you are comfortable with.
  • You are aware, and able to recall, what is said and done in the session, just as you would from an ordinary conversation

Preparing for the hypnosis session

  • Plan on the hypnosis session taking an hour and a half to two hours.  
  • Adjust your schedule accordingly.  
  • It's best not to eat a large meal or drink strong coffee or alcohol before your session.
  • We also advise you to wear comfortable clothing and, if you wear contact lenses, to be ready to remove them for the session.
  • Have a read of the FAQs for more about the experience of going into trance, so you can tell you've been hypnotized.
  • Write up a list of what you want to gain from your hypnosis session, and bring this list with you to your first visit.

Waiting room info
Take a seat in the waiting room and I will bring you into my office as soon as the client before you is finished.  Although it is uncommon, it is possible for clients to go over their session time. I will not stop the session until the client is in a good place. Be prepared to wait 5-10 minutes in case this occurs.  When you come into the waiting room, send me a text message to let me know you are there and I will let you in.  The door to our waiting room will automatically lock at times, if you are locked out, send me a text and I will come out and unlock it.  Please be considerate of other people by being quiet in the waiting room.

The Hypnosis session

After you fill out the intake form I provide, we will spend some time finding out about you and the issue/s you want to deal with. We'll focus briefly on the history of this issue, what you've tried previously, establish goals and create a customized treatment plan.  I'll explain hypnosis and hypnotherapy in more detail, and explain how the process will benefit you specifically.  I will answer any queries you may have about the process. And then, it's time to enjoy some well deserved calm and relaxation.

You'll feel mentally and physically calm, with a relaxed awareness of everything that's happened. Drink plenty of water afterwards and take things slow because you might feel slightly drained due to releasing so much baggage. 

In follow up sessions, we'll discuss progress and any additional issues, and go into trance to carry on making the changes you want.
