How much is a session?
A regular HYPNOTHERAPY session costs £70 and lasts about 45 minutes to an hour.
My one stop STOP SMOKING program costs £180 including all extras- go to stop smoking for details.
My three session WEIGHT LOSS program (including optional HYPNOTIC GASTRIC BAND Therapy) is £230.
All sessions include a free MP3 self-hypnosis download. If you're on long term sick leave or unemployed, please mention it when you get in touch as I may be able to offer a reduced rate.
How many sessions will I need?
I practice brief therapy. I am solution focused and don't think it's ethical to keep someone in therapy indefinitely. Hypnotherapy isn't a magic wand (although it is pretty amazing) - it can take several sessions to undo years of emotional and physical patterns. I rarely see clients for more than 6 sessions. I offer a one session stop smoking program and a three session weight loss program (details above).
Does hypnosis really work?
Yes, it certainly does. Don't let the silly things you see on tv fool you, hypnosis is a great tool for changing the beliefs and patterns that you are holding on to and wish you weren't. Here is Paul Mckenna talking about the basics. Don’t expect a miracle in one session, it can take several sessions until your unconscious mind begins to re-wire.
How does hypnotherapy work?
Hypnosis is a blissful altered state that allows the therapist to make changes to the deep structures of the unconscious mind. Bypassing the critical faculty, we allow the release of negative emotion and put you in touch with your innate resources. I can teach you how to control your thinking. I work best when you are really committed to change.
I've tried quitting smoking before, how will this time be different?
My program is tried and tested- it has helped hundreds of people to quit smoking forever. By preparing you fully and supporting you throughout the process we will make sure that you take control. The hypnosis techniques I use are cutting edge and they work. You can become a non smoker today!
How do I pay?
You can choose to pay in advance by bank transfer or on the day. I ask all clients to pay for at least two sessions in advance. Please let me know in advance how you'd like to pay.
What happens if I have to cancel?
I understand that life can sometimes get in the way. If you need to cancel please give 24hrs notice and we can reschedule. If you don't, you will be charged the session fee (I will probably have turned down another client to see you!).
There's nothing wrong with me, why do I need coaching?
If you are totally happy with every aspect of your job, your relationships, your bank balance, your stress levels, your confidence, the way you think, your habits and your feelings then you probably don't! Well done! If you're not 100% sure, or have typed something like "Life Coach Peterborough" into a browser, I can help you.
How does the free consultation work?
I offer a free initial consultation so we can meet and chat about what you wish to achieve through hypnosis. I will explain how hypnosis works. It gives you a chance to ask questions and decide whether I am the right therapist for you before you come for treatment. You can contact me here.
How can I find you?
Here is a map of the area. When you book your first appointment I will confirm the address by email. There is free on street parking nearby.
