Alex Vrettos, Hypnotist
Hello and thanks for checking me out! Please read on to get an insight into how I work.
You are the world's greatest hypnotist when it comes to you. Every day you trick yourself into believing that your thoughts and feelings are real, and no doubt this works out very well for you in most cases. If you are reading this though, then you are experiencing some unwanted patterns of thought, feelings and behaviours as your reality, and they are causing you dissatisfaction, confusion or upset.
You may have seen stage shows where hypnosis is the art of assisting someone to experience the imagination as real, but you are already doing that every moment of every day.
As a hypnotist I can use suggestion to give you new ways of thinking and feeling, or I can use a mixture of hypnotic suggestion, thought experiments, metaphors, analogies and stories to guide you to insights about the nature of thought and feeling that will free you from your own unhelpful hypnotic suggestions. The benefits of this can reach far beyond the original issue.
All us therapists are different in personality and style, so I encourage you to look around and have a chat with some before making your decision. I am a pretty amiable chap, but I may or may not be your cup tea so if you would like a free consultation to sound me out over phone, text or e-mail, please get in touch. There's no obligation to go ahead and book a session.
All the best in the meantime,

Sessions last up to an hour and 45 mins and I charge £90 per session for the first two.
If things take longer than two sessions then I drop my session price to £60.
It is hard to say how many sessions you will need. Allow for four sessions and I will do my best to give you what you need in less.
I can take payments by card, cash or cheque. Card payments are slightly higher at £92 or £61
