I'm a very experienced Therapist Coach and Mentor and I spent the major part of my working life in the world of people development and training in major national & International organisations.
Some years ago I trained with the worlds leading exponents on Brief therapies including
NLP, Hypnotherapy and Time Line Therapy.
I now focus on private consultations helping to resolve a range of problems/concerns such as:
- Weight Loss
- Gastric Band Hypnotherapy
- Quitting Smoking
- Phobias (Flying, Heights, Medical Needles, Dentists etc)
- Increasing Self Confidence for Business & Social situations
- Pre and Post operative surgery. Preparation for anxiety free surgery & support for speedy recovery
- Preparation for and assisting recovery after Surgery
- Exam nerves
- Career/ Job change - all aspects including New directions , CV Prep. Interview prep etc
- And more .....
How many Sessions?
My priority when working with clients is to resolve their problem with the minimum number of consultations.I never tie clients to a predetermined number of sessions.
When you notice that you're experiencing the change you wanted, you're done.
Quitting smoking (if you seriously want to quit) and phobia removal usually require just one consultation.
Where do we start? We usually start with an informal telephone chat but in strict confidence. You're under no obligation and no pressure whatsoever. If we mutually agree that an appointment is the obvious next step, we meet and I take a confidential personal history connected with the area you're seeking help with. I advise an appointment duration of 90 minutes allowing time for the personal history and commencement or possibly completion of the treatment.
If, after taking the personal history, for any reason either of us decide that it's not appropriate to proceed, I will charge a discretionary nominal fee (around £10.00) and we part company. It's very important that you feel completely comfortable with your chosen therapist. However competent a particular therapist is, they might not be the best for you. (Having made that point, I can only remember one initial consultation where we were obviously not the right mix)..
If we agree to proceed, I will propose a treatment plan where I suggest suitable methods for resolving the problem. This might be a mixture of techiques or It could be just one. Before commencing I will explain what is entailed eg what NLP is or what Hypnosis is, so that any questions you have are answered.
Special Equipment few hypnotherapists have
I often use my EEG equipment on a first consultation. It measures and displays the client's brainwave forms on a computer screen. It shows the changing brain state from alert to deeply relaxed as the hypnosis takes effect. It's a scientific way of showing the client that Hypnosis isn't mumbo jumbo and most are intrigued to watch excerps when re awakened.
