Common Questions about working with me with Cognitive hypnotherapy in Windsor Berkshire

  • What is hypnosis?

    Everyone goes in and out of natural hypnotic trances every day, without perhaps knowing it. When a person has been so absorbed in a film or book so much that hours seemed to fly by. Experienced driving somewhere and arriving at their destination without them being aware of exactly how they got there. Realized that someone was talking to them, but were miles away and cannot recall there words later. All these are examples of common everyday trance which happen every day to all of us. Hypnosis is the same. By utilizing these naturally occurring trance states I will be able to speak directly to your unconscious mind to make positive suggestions and find solutions to current issues by uncovering the thoughts, feelings and memory patterns that led to the issue and which continues to maintain it in the present time.

  • Is it safe?

    Yes, it is a safe; Trance is a natural occurring phenomenon that we all go in and out of many times during our day without even knowing it. When in induced trance you are in control at all times, and with the level of trance required for successful therapy I cannot make you do anything that you don’t want to do, or make you reveal anything you don’t want to say. Some say afterwards that it felt a little like day-dreaming, but actually it also often heightens the awareness of the senses too. Some people ask me “what if I don’t wake up?, well, if you were left in an induced trance you would either fall asleep and when ready wake up naturally or just decide to open your eyes and end the trance yourself.

  • What does hypnosis feel like?

    Every person’s experience of hypnosis is different. Some say afterwards that it felt like daydreaming and a very pleasurable, enjoyable sensation. You will be conscious of what is going on around you but you may feel like drifting away into and out of your own thoughts.

    The state of hypnosis is in fact one of heightened awareness where your mind to be aware of many more things than is possible in the conscious state. The majority of people say how relaxed they felt during and after hypnosis and this feeling can often continue a long time after the session is over.

  • Can anyone be hypnotised?

    Yes, anyone can be hypnotised because all hypnosis is self hypnosis, so as long as you want to be hypnotised I can guide you into that state.

  • Can you tell me about my first session (initial consultation) & what happens next?

    I offer a free 15 minute initial consultation by phone to explore how I can help you, this can be arranged now by you calling 07780860369.

    If from this 15 minute consultation you want to proceed we can arrange an initial consultation at my therapy room based at Team Health Windsor Clinic. This initial consultation lasts about 90 minutes. During this time I will be asking questions in a sensitive way that enables you to become more self aware of the origins of your issue and help you start to understand it and think/feel about it in a way you may have not done before, so although this session is not trance Hypnotherapy, it is in essence therapy as you will become more self-aware from the session. The information I gain from this Initial Consultation enables me to prepare your personalized Treatment plan for your Cognitive Hypnotherapy which starts in Session 2.

  • How many sessions will I need?

    At the end of the initial consultation I will be able to make an assessment of how many further sessions will be required and will then be able to tell you. This will probably be not as many as you might think as Cognitive Hypnotherapy can be very effective and make permanent changes, in a very short amount of time compared to other approaches. To successfully treat the underlying causes and any habit, it is my experience that this can be achieved on average 3 to 4 sessions.

  • How long does a session last?

    Each of our sessions will last between 60 – 90 minutes, with the average being approx 75 minutes. This flexibility in session duration is needed as each client is unique and techniques can take longer or shorter depending on the person.

  • Do you offer a guarantee?

    It would please me immensely if I could guarantee success, but I am afraid no – no guarantees. It simply does not work that way, the reason for this is quite simple; my approach and aim is about giving you back control in your life. Therapy sometimes requires releasing and confronting negative emotions, fears etc, this requires getting in touch with your “true self”.  It is only successful if you are committed in wanting to take responsibility for going there and your own success, and this is something only you can do.
