FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What happens during a session?
The first session is a ‘getting to know you‘ session to understand the framework of your life. Very quickly, patterns emerge and during each subsequent week, we will explore how a significant ‘other person‘ influenced your behaviour (father, mother etc.) You then choose to hold on to those learned behaviours or change them if they are negatively impacting your life. Responses or reactions to life situations are also reviewed and worked through.
How long does a session last?
Each session lasts one hour and you decide the pace of your success. Whatever suits you is best for you, provided progress is being made.
Do I have to be hypnotised?
No. However, hypnosis is only focused attention and ALL hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
What is hypnosis like?
Hypnosis is simply focused attention that is often accompanied by a feeling of relaxation. You choose how deeply or how lightly you wish to experience hypnosis. It takes practice to drop into deeper levels of hypnosis. Clients often report that they are more aware of everything that is going on when in hypnosis, than in the normal waking state.
Is BrainWorking Recursive therapy (BWRT) a form of hypnosis?
No. Although it works with the subconscious mind, it is not a form of hypnosis and in some cases, it can be more powerful.
Is there anything for me to do between sessions?
Yes. Daily homework is agreed for the following week to help you strengthen your new pattern or help to bring up memories for the next session. This requires you to record your thoughts, feelings and dreams in a journal on a daily basis and carrying out any homework that will support your progress.
What type of client comes for psychotherapy?
In short – smart people. Often people say they don’t know why exactly they are coming other than stating that they are unhappy with their lives and need some direction. Others are floundering in their relationships; grief stricken with bereavement of a loved one; suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, anxieties, fears, and phobias. Others are going through major life changes or spiritual crisis and are looking for a trained professional to help them sort things out.
How do I pay for a session and how much is it?
Fees are detailed under the Fees tab of the website.
Payment can be made online by Bank Transfer (IBAN listed under Fees) using PayPal, Stripe or requesting a Text Request to your mobile phone (I use SumUp to do this).
Can I have an online session?
Due to Covid-19, all sessions are now held on the Zoom platform using their advanced security platform.
It is a requirement for confidentiality and privacy that you must be in a private space where you will remain uninterrupted for the duration of the session.
Can I record a session?
No. Sessions are private and may not be recorded under any circumstances as to do so would breach privacy, data protection and confidentiality.
