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.
Fees are £60.00 per hour for all sessions.
Smoking cessation is a one-off session lasting between 1 and 2 hours and the charge is £110.00.
I offer a free 20 minute initial telephone consultation to enable me to understand the client's issues in more detail
