YOUR FREE CONSULTATION TO AN INFORMED DECISION
Making the decision to reach out for help to deal with psychological, mental or emotional issues can be challenging for some of us. And while the stigma attached to mental health issues is getting better, it is still a factor for those who may need to actually seek help! So, ever since I set up my practice, back in 2000, I decided to provide a free consultation. This gives the prospective client an opportunity to explore their options, free of any financial commitment or obligation. The primary purpose of the free consultation is an introduction to both myself and my hypnotherapy services. In addition to that, we will have an informal and relaxed chat about the area of your life that is causing you concern, i.e. why you want therapy! And with your permission, I will provide you with an experiential demonstration of hypnosis; this is an integral, but not compulsory, part of the initial consultation! The demonstration is a light trance, what I refer to as an entry-level trance, it is quite easy to achieve but . . . should you feel anxious at all, I will help to guide you through that, it really is a relaxing and calming experience. However, your needs and wishes will be my main priority; so you are in control of the process, I'm just there to guide you!
With regard to the "presenting issue,” it may be useful to determine what constitutes a problem? In simple terms one could look at it, as an event, feeling or recurring problem that interferes with one’s daily life or life, when faced with a specific set of circumstances! For example, ordinarily you are alright, except when facing booking or going on a flight, you then become overwhelmed with anxiety. Or you fear to go to work, out for lunch, going in an elevator etc. In fact, anything that makes or persuades you to take an alternative or evasive action may be considered a call for help!
During your consultation, I will explain how hypnotherapy works in general but more specifically; I will demonstrate how it works for you. In addition to that, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the ways in which hypnotherapy will specifically be able to help you.
In taking up this offer you will not be under any obligation whatsoever. And it is important to note that while virtually anyone can be hypnotized, not all of us are suited to hypnotherapy. This is the moment when You can decide whether You Will Benefit from the various therapies I offer and what would be the most suitable way forward; for you.
To explain hypnosis more fully. We all go in and out of trance-like states every day of our life but these trance-like states are not specifically what we call states of hypnosis, hypnosis is a specific state that occurs when our brain is in the same brainwave states during sleep. That said, the brain can affect change at many levels, all the way up to consciousness, the hypnotic state just allows that to happen more quickly and more naturally, so it is a different state from our everyday trance states! The difference, that makes the difference, is that the daily trance states we experience, e.g. daydreaming, are experienced naturally and involuntarily. But in the hypnotist's chair, you voluntarily enter this deeper trance state and, because you are consciously aware of that, it may feel slightly unnatural but it really isn't. Any preconceptions, scepticism, anxiety or doubt, may merely interfere with your ability to enter this state in a natural way, be it fully or at all. That said, I have been doing this for almost 20 years now and I help every client to get to that place and the vast majority of my past clients, have said, that, once they experience hypnosis, they feel more relaxed and better informed as to exactly what hypnosis is; it is natural.
You have absolutely NOTHING to lose; except your Problem!
Although many Hypnotherapy Practitioners do offer a free consultation, they are often quite short, e.g. 20 to 30 minutes. My consultation is a minimum of 1 hour because I firmly believe in the need to establish a good working relationship before starting therapy of any kind. The choice of therapist is an important one and I want you to be absolutely sure you are making the right choice. There is no hard or soft sell. In fact, if you have any doubt, I would recommend seeking alternative choices. That said, it is sometimes true, that just talking a problem through can help and that, in and of itself, is a good reason to take up my offer!
Beyond the consultation, should you choose to proceed to therapy, your only commitment is to the first session. At the end of that, you can choose to go no further or choose to continue. In the latter case, you can pay on a session by session basis or, if you feel it is right for you, take one of my packages; the Choice is Yours!
