What Happens During a Hypnotherapy Session?
You are at the heart of every confidential therapy session. I work in a non-judgemental way at a pace that is right for you. I can offer either face-to-face sessions in person at Penzance Natural Health Centre, or online via Zoom, whichever suits you best.
In the first session, I will take a full personal case history and sensitively support you to explore the condition or issue that has led to you choosing Clinical Hypnosis as your preferred treatment option. I will then work with you to identify what you want to achieve, i.e. your goals for therapy. Following this, I will discuss and agree your treatment plan with you.
Psycho-education may be included within sessions to provide you with more information about aspects of your condition, or the techniques we may be using in the session. You may also be provided with additional information or recordings as extra support between sessions.
I will then introduce you to the process of hypnosis and using appropriate techniques relevant to your issue, take you into trance to complete the first session of your therapy. You will be safely brought out of trance and given clear instruction on any tasks to be completed between sessions.
I will then design follow up sessions specifically tailored to your condition or issue. As I take an integrative approach to my support, this may include EMDR and CBT techniques. Standard follow-up sessions may take 60 – 90 minutes.
