Hypnotherapy with Amanda

what you can expect during your hypnotherapy sessions, and more information about the conditions Amanda works with most often.

The initial consultation
Your first appointment is an opportunity for you to meet Amanda, discus what you would like to achieve as a result of hypnotherapy, and decide if Amanda is the right therapist for you.

Amanda will ask relevant questions about you and your situation, your current state of health and your medical history. She will then discus how the way our minds seem to work contributes to your experience, and how hypnotherapy can be used to help you.

You will then be given chance to ask any questions that may have arisen during the appointment (if you haven’t already asked them during the conversation).

Once you have decided that hypnotherapy with Amanda is the right option for you at this time, you will have the opportunity to experience hypnosis. This will re-assure you that hypnosis is, and feels, totally natural. You will also notice how in control you feel the whole time.

Towards the end of the appointment Amanda will summarise the information that has been covered and you will agree on homework tasks for you to do to consolidate the work that has been done during the appointment.

You will be given a relaxation CD, which Amanda will explain how to use. As Amanda will explain, use of this CD is an important component of the initial part of your therapy.

This appointment will usually last between one and two hours.

In the past Amanda offered a free 30-60 minute initial consultation consisting of the information gathering and education elements described above, however, many people were keen to move on with therapy there and then rather than wait until the following week. To accommodate this, Amanda now schedules 1½ – 2 hours for initial consultations, and charges the normal session fee of £50.

Subsequent therapy sessions
Follow-up sessions usually take place at weekly intervals at the beginning of therapy, though often become further apart as you near your goal.
Each session will follow a set format: review of the progress since the last session, agreement of the specific goal of the current session, appropriate hypnotic exercises and a review of the session.

These sessions last up to 1 hour, and the fee is £50
