One of the best ways of finding out about good hairdressers, beauticians, gardeners, etc is by word of mouth and the same applies for hypnotherapists. If you have a friend who has had a good experience with a hypnotherapist they are likely to mention it to you. If you haven’t had any recommendations then take a chance and ask around your friends and families. Even if you don’t manage to get a recommendation you’re not loosing anything and if you do then great! It is likely that you will feel more confident and comfortable around a therapist that has been recommended to you by a friend.
However, a word of caution. Recommendations are great but don’t be disappointed or disheartened if you find the therapist is not suitable for you. It may be that the friend who recommended them to you was having sessions to help them loose weight, where as you might need a therapist that specialises in a different area.
Hypnotherapy directory requires all of our registered Hypnotherpaists to provide us with confirmation of membership with a professional body or a relevant hypnotherapy qualification and indemnity insurance. This way we can provide the highest standard of therapy to the users of the directory.
It is important to factor location into your decision. Try to find a hypnotherapist that is close to your home or work place. If your therapist is far away then you are likely to make excuses to not keep your appointments. This is why you can search for therapists on our directory using your postcode, town or county in order to find therapists in your local area.
Obviously many people have work commitments so it is essential they find a hypnotherapist with suitable availability. Some Hypnotherapists operate on a week day only basis, others offer weekend and evening appointments to fit around a range of lifestyles.
Price will be an important factor in the decision making process. Even though some hypnotherapists live in the same area, the cost of their sessions may vary a great deal due to factors such as experience or a charge they might incur to rent a business space.
Many hypnotherapists will offer a consultation session before beginning treatment but not all of them do.
The purpose of the consultation is to allow you to meet the hypnotherapist in person and make an informed judgement as to whether you want to continue seeing them or not. It also gives you both a chance to discuss your problem in more detail and to hear about and ask questions about how the hypnotherapist can help you.
The Sex of the Hypnotherapist
Although all hypnotherapists will be qualified and prepared to deal with many issues specific to men and women, some people might feel uncomfortable discussing personal details with the opposite sex.
Experience of Hypnotherapist with your issue
Certain hypnotherapists specialise in certain areas. For example one might have experience in IBS and another might have experience in weight loss or natal hypnotherapy. If you find a hypnotherapist who specialises in the area in which your issue lies then it is likely to make you feel more comfortable as you know they understand and have successfully helped a similar issue.
