Our Hypnotherapy Sessions

General Format

Each Solution Focused Hypnotherapy session is around 50 minutes to an hour. During the first part of the session, we’ll revisit how the brain works and focus together on positives and goals; the second part of the session is when we enjoy the lovely relaxing trance, during which time our subconscious mind supports what we want to be change in our lives.


The single session that we do together for stopping smoking is longer, at 90-120 minutes. We still focus on positives and we still use trance to help us work towards a smoke-free future.


Work around specific phobias (such as fear of the dentist or of creepy crawlies) is generally in a block of three sessions.

Other Work Together

People often find great benefits from the first few sessions, though further ones might be needed to embed the changes needed for their preferred future. We don’t drag appointments out unnecessarily and on average, people can choose to have between 8 – 12 sessions. These can be booked one at a time, so you don’t have to commit to a large number of appointments from the beginning. Some people also choose to come back and have ‘top up’ sessions at the end of their main course of hypnotherapy and this is a lovely way of keeping in touch.

To start with, we’ll have weekly sessions. After a while, we might extend these to two or three weekly, depending on how you feel.

We work side-by-side, together.  You’ll know when things feel improved enough for you to discontinue our work together. Of course, I will be there to support you as you make your decisions.
