Common questions

Can you help me during COVID?

These are anxious times for many people and the lockdown can also make pre-existing anxieties worse. We can help you manage and reduce anxiety and find your way through. You can have sessions online, but if you prefer you can also see us in person, because we maintain social distancing and recommended hygiene standards in our consulting room and building. Whether you’d like sessions online or in person, please arrange a free 20 minute initial consultation to tell us what you want and find out more about how we can help.

How many sessions will I need?

Everyone is different, but as a guideline phobias can usually be released in a couple of sessions and many emotional, health and pain issues can be resolved in 4 to 6 sessions. Chronic anxiety and life-long issues usually require more sessions, but are fully resolvable. For personal development or coaching we suggest starting with 6 sessions and for bereavement we recommend 12 sessions of Holistic Counselling. We also offer open-ended Holistic Counselling with unlimited time for personal reflection. Tell us what you’re looking for in a free initial consultation and we can tell you how long it’s likely to take.

Why am I still affected by something that happened long ago?

When you’re reminded of a past event, even unconsciously, it brings a memory of how you felt in your body, which may be uncomfortable, and the conclusions you drew, which may be wrong. This can make you inexplicably feel bad and react in inappropriate or unhelpful ways. Hypnosis and EFT allow you to quickly release and change these associations.

Will I remember what happens while I’m hypnotised?

Yes. Hypnosis is only a natural state of heightened relaxation and you’re fully aware of what’s happening.

Why do I remember things better after Hypnosis or EFT?

After both Hypnosis or EFT you may remember better, because relaxation dispels difficult feelings associated with the memories making them more easily accessible - and non-traumatic!
