Frequently Asked Questions and What to Expect

Initial Consultation

Getting to know each other is important and this is the opportunity to do this. I will ask some questions about your health and wellbeing and this will allow us to create the personal therapy for you and your needs.

It is important to understand how the brain works so I will give an explanation of this, which will help you get to understand how hypnotherapy will help and get you to being in control of your life. I will also explain the process of the following sessions so you know what to expect from each one.

You will receive my MP3 of the trance session which will help with the therapy we do.

Most importantly it will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you have.
