I offer a free 15-20 minute consultation. Call now on 07762 120390. This is an informal discussion which includes an explanation of hypnosis and how this may help with your issues and to determine the best course of action. After the initial consultation, should you wish to proceed with a course of treatment the fees are as follows:
Individual therapy sessions – £75.00 for a 60 minute session.
These sessions include the therapeutic use of clinical hypnotherapy, NLP, cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy and aversion therapy and / or mindfulness meditation techniques delivered from a treatment plan created following the initial consultation.
Smoking cessation – £150.00 for a 90 minute session.
Due to the nature of the ‘Quit 4 Life’ therapeutic process to achieve a lifelong cessation of the smoking habit this is a one-off session lasting approximately 90 minutes. Elements of the initial consultation are utilised within this session and a separate motivational CD/MP3 recording is included. Any subsequent sessions are charged at £75.00 for 60 minutes.
Please note that Graham C Lee reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee for appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. I have this policy in place because time has been reserved for you and other clients cannot be rescheduled at such short notice.
There are many fears and misunderstandings about the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, and the myths and mystery that surround it are totally undeserved. Hopefully the following explanation will help to reassure you that what happens is very normal, very safe, and generally with positive results.
Hypnosis is usually induced by the use of the therapist’s voice, though you are unlikely to actually feel hypnotised. There is no such thing as a ‘hypnotised feeling’, though many people find their senses to be far more alert than usual – you will certainly not ‘lose control’ at any time, nor can you be manipulated in any way. Everyone experiences hypnosis in a slightly different way, but all who have been in a hypnotic trance have found it to be a very pleasant experience.
There is no form of unconsciousness and nobody can be made to do anything that they do not want to do; a person in hypnosis is aware of everything happening around them, aware of themselves and their therapist, and will retain a full and accurate memory of everything afterwards.
Hypnosis, a totally natural phenomenon, is simply a very comfortable and relaxed state during which it is quite easy to converse sensibly with the therapist. Almost anyone can enter the hypnotic state easily, with the exceptions of those with severe learning difficulties, very young children, and anybody under the influence of hard drugs or very large quantities of alcohol. It is inconceivable that any harm could befall anybody in this pleasant state.
This is a reliable and safe therapeutic technique which is centuries old and is recognised by many branches of orthodox medicine as a valuable alternative to drugs, to accelerate healing, and to help combat pain.
Whilst not a miraculous cure for all ills, hypnotherapy can be an effective treatment method for a great many problems where psychological factors are involved.
What can hypnotherapy help with?
There are many issues that hypnotherapy can be applied to. Here are a few that have been proven to be of great benefit:
Helping with thoughts and feelings
Feeling others are unfairly judgmental
Seeing the negative rather than the positive
Frightened of being alone
Doubting whether a partner is faithful
What is hypnotherapy used for?
I started seeing Graham during a prolonged period of overwhelming anxiety. I will admit to being sceptical initially but after a short free introductory session I decided to proceed with weekly sessions of mindfulness techniques and hypnotherapy.
Each week Graham taught me 2 or 3 different ways to use mindfulness as a way to achieve deep relaxation whilst at the clinic and to practise at home or whilst in an anxiety inducing situation. Some techniques were more successful for me than others but each week Graham would ask how I was getting on and would make suggestions to help further.
We ended each session with a time of hypnotherapy which simply felt like a time of very deep relaxation during which I was completely aware of my surroundings and what was happening but was so wonderfully relaxed. I now feel enabled to achieve that deep relaxation myself.
I found Graham to be very professional, calming, welcoming and sincere and would happily recommend his sessions to anybody struggling with an area of life which they feel is becoming out of control. I had 4 sessions and now feel I have strategies that I can use to help me to cope with my anxieties whenever/ wherever they might occur. Thank you Graham.
I have been suffering from biting my nails since a child, where other people have been able to stop doing it, I had kept doing it and more so during stressful periods of my life. I have felt ashamed of showing my finger nails and created a method of hiding my hands to strangers and business colleagues.
I had 2 treatments with Graham after which I haven’t bit my nails. After the first treatment, I immediately stopped biting my nails - which I didn’t think it would work so quickly. After some stressful times, I started to bite my nails again and started to slip into old habits. Following a second and final session, I have managed to kick the habit and have even gone through some stressful circumstances with no biting!
Graham is very professional and attentive and I highly recommend him to people who would like to end life-long habits like mine.

Graham is friendly, understanding and very professional and I felt very at ease in his comfortable, home like surroundings. I remember feeling sleepier and sleepier but hearing every word he said but when he brought me back out of the session I found I couldn’t remember much at all but I certainly felt revitalized and refreshed. It was not until a few days later that I started to notice the changes in my daily routines, which then led my OCD to a halt. I was amazed and felt so much better in myself. I would like to thank Graham again and highly recommend him, to anyone struggling with a certain aspect if their life.
When I first saw Graham my anxiety problem had reached a level where they were unmanageable. However, even after just the first session I found the intensity of my anxieties had reduced several levels to a point where I could just about cope. The following sessions, building on this, I am now able to start rebuilding my life.
The various techniques Graham provided, help me identify and choose the ones that suited me and to my relief they do work. In my case specifically the relaxation and memory one. It is a continuing reassurance to me, that should I feel a need again, I can call on Graham to help put me back on track.
I signed up to the coaching because it is something that I want to do myself once I eventually land a learning and development role. However, throughout the process although short I realised just how beneficial it can be even for someone who thinks they know everything like myself.
It helps that Graham understood my enthusiasm which is often misconstrued and was able to use various tools to point me in the right direction. I am quite a busy body but was able to focus on certain tasks, while learning to not put so much pressure on myself. This has been particularly useful as I have since successfully completed my first semester back at university studying HR and will now be leaving the NHS Trust to start my first HR role.
Overall it has been a very helpful experience!
I met with Graham to help with my drinking issue as I've been told by friends and family how concerned they are about my health. Graham gave me lots of helpful exercises to help me. I felt very relaxed during our sessions and found just getting it out was a relief in itself. I now have useful tools to use to get me through tricky times.
After spending 55 years of being a smoker I am proud to say after one session of hypnotherapy with Graham I am now a non-smoker.
I have found my appointments with Graham a relaxing and beneficial experience.
Graham has helped me to recognise issues that have caused me anxiety and other health problems. After several months of therapy I am now feeling more confident, happier and at ease with myself as well as having more energy and improving my general health.
I found Graham when I was looking online for hypnotherapy practitioners in the Bexleyheath area as there were some issues that I wanted to work on.
After the initial session with Graham, I found him to be very comforting, non-judgemental, sympathetic and patient. Over a period of few weeks, he helped me work on my issues using various methods and exercises, which helped me immensely. I found his techniques easy to follow and practice myself.
I decided to see Graham following a long and stressful period in my life. This was affecting me in many ways and finally came to a head when I needed some urgent dental work which I was unable to face.
I had five sessions of hypnotherapy with Graham which included a variety of relaxation exercises for me to practise at home or use these strategies when I found myself in stressful situations. Graham also recorded part of the hypnotherapy session which I was able to listen to again at home and especially at the end of the day.
Over the course of the sessions I noticed an overall improvement in my general well-being, because this wasn't just about going to the dentist, the problems arose due to other anxiety in my life so it was important for me to get to the root of the cause.
Now I am at the end of the sessions I genuinely feel much better, and in case you're wondering, I have been to my dentist, I have had my treatment, it was all fine and my dentist is now recommending hypnotherapy to other patients. So well done Graham and thank you.
“I have struggled with weight for a few years and also found myself feeling quiet anxious in certain situations. A family friend recommended hypnotherapy and found Graham on the internet. I was a little sceptical but was willing to give it a go. I found Graham extremely easy to talk to and we discussed certain situations and how I felt in them.
Following a relaxed discussion at the start of each session Graham then carried out hypnotherapy (which he recorded for me to use at a later date) and gave me to the tools to overcome my anxieties / address weight issues depending on what was the focus of the session. Graham also gave me some great tips and tricks to try out to overcome and avoid certain situations.
I felt that Graham gave me a great springboard to get my life back on track. “
