Some Client Testimonials
"I visited Alan Gray earlier this year as I was experiencing personal problems. On my first visit I found Alan to be a person who never judges you, but who was quite happy to sit and listen to the problems I was experiencing. The more sessions I attended the more I found I was able to talk openly about my troubles. The hypnotherapy I underwent has made me stronger as a person and all this is down to one person: Alan Gray. I would not hesitate to seek treatment from Alan in the future if I need to.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for giving me my life back. When I wake in the morning I'm ready to face the world with confidence and relish. Once again Alan many thanks. If it wasn't for you I would still be suffering from the problems that you have been able to resolve with your patient treatment and also sense of humour and understanding".
Best wishes, Steve from Whitby.
"I went to hypnotherapy to seek help for a phobia that I have had for as long as I can remember and I thought I was going to have it forever. When I went to Alan I was skeptical however I was greeted with a lovely, chatty gentleman who made me feel very at ease and after my first session with him I saw a drastic improvement in my phobia. I had 3 sessions and my phobia has disappeared and I can now live without the limitations that my phobia caused me. I never thought it would be so easy to get rid of but it was. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone".

Fees are stated in the 'Fees Page' of the Scarborough Hypnotherapy website. To help you, session fees have been maintained at their present level for the last four years.
Please note: Most clients pay in cash, although we can take card payments. Please note don't accept cheques.
To be successful it is important that clients are motivated and disciplined in keeping appointments. Where there is a programme of sessions to be completed, it is recommended that weekly attendance is best.
Compared with other talking therapies, hypnotherapy can provide a relatively quick solution to many issues. However, clients should be realistic. The therapy should not be regarded as 'magic', or a necessarily a 'quick fix'.
At least 24 hours notice of a missed appointment should be given, otherwise as is normal in professional services a session fee will become payable.
All sessions are by pre-appointment only. Appointments can occasionally be made outside of normal working hours (after 5pm and on Saturdays).
Free parking (2.5 hours) is available close by at Sainsbury's Supermarket, or free for up to 3 hours on some local streets.
You can enter the Scarborough Hypnotherapy building in complete privacy.
Since there are several offices in the building so you could be visiting any one of these. There is also no inquisitive receptionist to ask you embarrassing questions.
For ease of access, the Practice is situated on the ground floor where there is a comfortable waiting room and Alan will see you immediately. Appointments are arranged so that you are not kept waiting.
