Step 2 - The first session


If, after the initial consultation you have decided to proceed, the next step is to begin sessions.


What to expect will have been explained to you, your questions answered, and there will be more questions from me, and you will have your own too as we proceed, and that's to be expected.


Sessions are structured to meet your needs and timeframes.  Take things at the pace you want to go. 


Whether it is several times a week, weekly, fortnightly or monthly it is up to you to decide.  I will give my recommendation but of course, it is your decision how you proceed. 


Whatever time frame you choose,  I will structure the most beneficial listening approach to any and all recordings I give to you, this will allow you to become familiar with your new learnings gained as you go through the therapeutic process.


So whether it is therapy, counselling, mentoring or just a confidential sounding board for worries or ideas to be discussed I will be pleased to help.  


Usually, an MP3 recording of any hypnotherapy session is sent to you by email attachment, for your listening in-between times we meet, this is recorded after our session discussions and sent to you within 3 days. 


Our meetings and goals will be structured, so giving a little time to think and structure recordings is time well spent, and often leads to quicker results, and by definition, financial savings too. 


You might prefer it sent over by Dropbox (a file transfer program that is so easy I can do it!). You can let me know your preference at the Initial Consultation.

If we do hypnotherapy sessions, each one will be different, and each will be interlinked maximizing their benefits. However, any consulting / counselling work is not recorded.

The number of sessions needed depends upon what you are presenting, the time you have lived with the problem(s), along with several other considerations too.

However, for smoking, for example, it is usually 2 sessions after the initial consultation.

For IBS it can be 3-6 sessions depending on symptoms and frequency of presentation.

On this site there is a list of conditions/issues I have worked with, however, it is not exhaustive, so if in doubt please ask.

At each appointment, you are given the benefit of all my 36+ years of experience. 

In the IBS field, I am an internationally recognised therapist with research, patient piloting and trial experience, and have an innovation and research award for my work in this area.


I am the author of several self-help audio programs distributed by Healthy Audio Hypnosis Limited a company that operates at a high level of professionalism.
