Frequently asked questions about hypnosis

I’m not really sure what Hypnosis is?

Hypnosis is a natural state you enter many times a day. It means your conscious mind is relaxed and your unconscious mind is more accessible. Hypnosis simply relaxes your conscious mind allowing for beneficial suggestions to enter your unconscious mind to make the changes you desire. It is a pleasant feeling of natural deep relaxation and is completely safe with no side effects.

Why is Hypnotherapy so effective?

If you have tried to fix an issue on your own and not succeeded you will know how hard it is. This is because you will have tried to fix the issue with your conscious mind (which is where will power is). But the change may not stick because the unconscious mind (the greater part of your mind) has not been involved. Many people try Councelling, CBT, psychotherapy, groups or sheer will-power to fix their issue but it simply isn’t enough. Something in your unconscious hasn’t ‘clicked’ and you are stuck. Hypnotherapy seeks co-operation from your unconscious mind and change happens much more easily and quickly with your whole mind committed to change.

What can Hypnosis help with?

Hypnotherapy can be used in two ways. To remove things we don’t want or to give us things that we do. Some of the things you don’t want might include unwanted habits like overeating, stress and anxiety or addictions such as smoking and sugar. Some of things you do want might be confidence, better sleep, help with interviews, exams, study or sporting performance. One of the best uses of Hypnotherapy I offer is to help with anxiety and depression which is more in your control than you could ever imagine. There are many emotions that can sabotage your happiness or ability to function well but the main ones I come across are; overwhelm, guilt, fear, insecurity, self-doubt, worry, hopelessness, inadequacy, disappointment and lack of self-esteem. Hypnotherapy can ease of these things and make you feel better.

How many sessions will I need?

With the integrated techniques that I use, many issues can be treated in one or two sessions. Some issues will take longer but we will discuss this during your initial consultation.

How confidential is the treatment?

Trust is absolutely key to my work. The content of your sessions and personal details are strictly confidential and you can have complete confidence.

Hypnosis online 

If you feel I am the right therapist for you, but location is an issue, you can work with me online. This means you can be anywhere in the world and receive my help in the comfort of your own home. All my therapies are just as effective online. I was one of the first therapists to offer my services online.


Online therapy is nice because it has the advantage of you being very comfortable because you are in your own home.  There is also no travel time so it works really well for busy people and shift workers. It’s an easy and convenient way to access therapy where ever you may be.

You can have your session from a quiet private place, if you are travelling on business, from home or anywhere suitable. Some people from other countries just prefer an English therapist and people in high profile or celebrity positions may not wish to be seen in public.

Housebound clients looking for pain relief benefit greatly from OldPain2Go pain elimination sessions online.

A comfortable area to sit or lie down

Yes, very. You will be sent everything you need to know when you book.
