Therapeutic Hypnotist

About me

Hello and thanks for checking me out!

I've been a hypnotist since 2011 and have received the South Of England Prestige Business Award for Hypnotherapist Of The Year two years in a row, and have been one of Three Best Rated Worthing hypnotherapists for four years in a row.

I had a previous career before that in cinema management where I learned the importance of good communication. While training as a hypnotherapist I worked coaching people who had been unemployed for a long time and then on to Victim Support working with victims of crime. This certainly set me up to be able to deal confidently with even the worst traumas.

I am not an average hypnotherapist. I will introduce you to your mind in a way you have not understood it before - through a hypnotic lens - so that you will gain an understanding that all your thinking is self-hypnotic. When you experience this in session, you will understand how your mind plays tricks on you and therefore how to protect yourself against and move away from detrimental thinking. It is empowering.

Does that make you curious? If so, my style of therapy is likely to be a good match for you, so get in touch and I will tell you more.

All of us therapists are different in personality and style, so I encourage you to look around and have a chat with two or three of us before making your decision. I'm a pretty amiable chap, but I may or may not be your cup tea so if you would like a no-obligation chat to sound me out over phone, text or e-mail, please get in touch.

Come and sound me out :o)

All the best in the meantime,

Alex

Member organisations

GHR

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Fees

Additional information

Sessions last up to 2 hours and I charge £100 per session for the first two.

If things take longer than two sessions then I drop my session price to £70.

My most common pattern of sessions is 2 sessions within two weeks of each other and then a 3rd a month later. 10% off if you book all three in advance – £243 payable at the end of the first session.

All treatment includes phone support between sessions if you need it and hypnotic audios to listen to at home.

I charge a £250 flat rate for smoking – this buys you up to three additional sessions over the course of the year following the first session in case you need extra support!

If you feel like you would like longer-term support straight off the bat then I offer two options. This is usually taken up for issues that require longer-term support due to required lifestyle changes or multiple issues.15% discount for six sessions to be cashed in over six months: £480.

20% discount for twelve sessions to be cashed in over a year: £720.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I work from a home office - I am on the ground floor - there are a couple of small steps and a tight hallway.
