Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
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.
The initial consultation is free and this is designed so we can discuss how hypnotherapy can help you - this includes a full explanation of how the brain works in relation to hypnotherapy.
Following sessions cost £50 each and last for approximately 50 minutes, and include a therapy CD. The number of sessions needed depends on individual circumstances, which we will discuss at the initial consultation.
Smoking cessation costs £100 and is normally a one off session of up to 2 hours.
Specific fears and phobias cost £50 per session and will normally take 3 sessions to resolve.
Concessions will be considered for people with low incomes.
I am located just off the Fishponds Road (A432) - 3 miles from the centre of Bristol and less than a mile from the M32 Motorway. There is ample on street parking available in the areas.
Buses - numbers 48 & 49 provide a frequent and regular service from Bristol City Centre. I am a 5 minute walk from the bus stop.
