General Hypnotherapy FAQs

Where are you located?

My hypnotherapy practice is conveniently situated near Whitstable and Canterbury in Herne Bay, Kent, offering in-person sessions. Additionally, I provide online hypnotherapy sessions to clients from anywhere in the UK.

How long are the sessions?

Typically, sessions last for about an hour. Certain treatments, such as smoking cessation, involve a single, extended 2-hour appointment.

Do you offer hypnotherapy packages?

Absolutely. The number of sessions required will vary from person to person.  Therefore packages are available in blocks of 4 or 8 sessions, offering a discounted rate. To learn more about pricing and package details, kindly refer to the pricing page.

How do I cancel or reschedule a booking?

I understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, kindly provide a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. This allows me to adjust my schedule accordingly.

How many sessions are typically required?

The number of sessions varies depending on individual needs and goals. Some clients experience significant progress in a few sessions, while others may benefit from more extended support. Treatment length is discussed at your initial consultation, and package options are available.

Are you registered and qualified as a hypnotherapist?

Absolutely. I trained at what is considered the gold standard for hypnotherapists, The Clifton Practice, obtaining a Diploma in Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy and a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma. In addition, I am registered with esteemed organisations, including the Association for Solution-Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH), the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). These accreditations reflect my commitment to top-quality and well-regulated practice, ensuring you receive the best care and support on your journey to well-being.

Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy FAQs

What can solution-focused hypnotherapy help with?

Solution-focused hypnotherapy can assist with a wide range of issues, including stress, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem, and more. It’s a versatile approach focused on positive change.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a safe, powerful psychotherapeutic tool grounded in neuroscience. Hypnosis or ‘trance’ is a very natural, relaxing state, encouraged by using guided relaxation, where the mind can relax and then focus on thoughts and suggestions that might be useful. Have you ever driven home and not remembered anything about the journey, or been engrossed in a book and not been conscious of time passing? If so, you’ve been in a state of focused attention, not unlike the feeling of being hypnotised.

Is solution-focused hypnotherapy suitable for everyone?

Yes, solution-focused hypnotherapy is generally suitable for individuals of various backgrounds and ages. However, I would always recommend using a qualified hypnotherapist to determine if it’s the right fit for your specific needs.

How does solution-focused hypnotherapy differ from traditional therapy?

Unlike traditional therapy, which may delve into past issues, solution-focused hypnotherapy primarily focuses on your desired future and solutions. It’s a forward-focused approach that leverages your strengths and resources for positive change.

What happens during a typical solution-focused hypnotherapy session?

A typical session involves discussing your goals, strengths, and the positive outcomes you want to achieve. You will then be guided into a relaxed state of hypnosis to help reframe negative thought patterns and foster lasting change.

Is hypnosis safe during solution-focused hypnotherapy?

Yes, the hypnosis used in solution-focused hypnotherapy is safe and guided by a trained professional. You remain in control throughout the process, and the goal is to help you achieve relaxation and positive change in a secure environment.
