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 rarely held each week since you will need some time to become familiar with your new learnings gained as you go through the therapeutic process, however, for some individuals, weekly appointments are not ruled out but as mentioned it is rare for that to happen. 

Usually, an MP3 recording of the hypnotherapy session is sent to you, to listen to in-between times we meet, this is recorded as we do the session together.


If you prefer you may decide to have it on CD or, bring your own memory stick, or you might prefer it sent over by Dropbox    (a file transfer program which 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 it, and 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 30+ years’ experience. Few hypnotherapists have this length of practice experience.

In the IBS field, I am a UK recognised leader with research, patient piloting and trials, 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 Limited a company I own, and which operates at a high level of professionalism.
