Frequently Asked Questions
Everyone has questions about hypnotherapy. These are the ones that crop up most often.
I don't have a Skype account, how do I get one?
Skype is free to download from www.skype.com. Just follow the instructions and within five minutes you'll be able to run free Skype-to-Skype video calls over the internet.
Is hypnotherapy by Skype less effective than face to face?
Absolutely not. The success of your therapy doesn't depend on whether we meet face to face or over Skype. It's all about how clearly we communicate and how calm and relaxed you are. Skype sorts out the communication; being at home ensures relaxation.
Can I have a hypnotherapy session from anywhere in the world?
Yes, so long as you have access to Skype and you're in a room that's not going to be disturbed, you can have a hypnotherapy session with me. That's one of the benefits of doing it by Skype – you can continue your sessions when you're on holiday or away on a business trip.
What kind of internet connection do I need?
You'll need a good broadband connection. If you're unsure, get in touch. We'll be able to tell if your broadband speed is good enough for a Skype session. The most important thing is that I can see you and that we can hear each other.
How much does a session cost?
The cost of each 60 minute (1 hour) session is £80, which includes a detailed discussion and extensive therapy work. For further details, please check our'prices and bookings' page.
Once I have booked a session, what's the next step?
Once we have agreed a suitable time, you will be required to make payment (via paypal or bank transfer) in order to confirm the agreed time. Once I receive the payment, I'll send you a questionnaire to help us work out how best I can help you.
How do I make a booking?
Once we agree on a mutually convenient time and date (through email), simply make a payment via a bank transfer or PayPal to confirm your booking. Once payment has been confirmed the appointment is confirmed. I shall then send you a questionnaire which I require before the session for my review.
Can I cancel a session?
Yes, providing you give us 48 hours' notice. If you fail to give us notice, you'll have to pay 50% of the fee.
How many sessions will I require?
That depends on your condition and its severity. Most clients tend to need from 3 to 5 sessions. The success of hypnotherapy depends on how well you respond to the therapy and on your motivation and desire for change. Our aim is for maximum effectiveness from the least number of sessions.
Do I need any other equipment?
Your computer or tablet will need a video camera. You will have to place it somewhere that gives me a good view of you during your hypnotherapy session. It's also highly recommended connecting some head phones to your computer. Headphones help cut out other noises. The better the sound quality, the better your hypnotherapy experience.
Can I have someone else in the room with me?
Yes if it makes you feel more comfortable. But that other person must be quiet an unobtrusive. For the best result, you need peaceful surroundings without any disturbances.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
Everyone can be hypnotised, although your co-operation is key because you need to allow yourself to go into the trance to a level you are comfortable with. Only fear, lack of knowledge or (rarely) an inability to concentrate sufficiently, result in someone not being able to go into the trance.
Will I be under the hypnotherapist's control?
No. You are always in control of the session, and can snap out of the trance at any time, if you need to.
Can I be made to do or say things I don't agree with?
You cannot be made to say, do or reveal anything against your will. You will also automatically reject any suggestions given in trance that you don't agree with.
Can I get stuck in the trance?
No. You can return to your usual awareness whenever you need to. If our Skype connection breaks during our session, you will come back to your usual level of awareness.
