Complimentary Telephone Consultation

All new clients will receive a free telephone consultation. The purpose of this is to allow clients the opportunity to explore their issues and treatment goals and ask any relevant questions about cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy. It also allows the hypnotherapist to better understand the clients requirements and prepare accordingly.

On completion of the telephone consultation a decision is made between both parties as to the next steps and in most cases this leads to the booking of the first appointment. However, after the consultation either the client or hypnotherapist are free to decide not to go ahead with treatment. In the case of the hypnotherapist this might include referring the client to more suitable services.

Disclaimer

Hypnotherapy and hypnosis are established forms of therapy that have been used over many years. However, First Step Hypnosis does not guarantee the effectiveness of treatment or any specific outcomes. As with any form of therapy the success of the treatment depends upon many factors including the relationship between client and therapist and the commitment of the client. Hypnosis is not mind control and requires clients to take responsibility for their own active involvement in the therapy. Hypnotherapy does not replace proper medical treatment and where appropriate the hypnotherapist will refer clients back to their GP.

In between sessions you will be given tasks to complete. Failure to complete tasks may reduce effectiveness of treatment.

Most clients will require an average of between 3-8 appointments, depending on the nature and severity of their presenting issues, although some clients might require more sessions. A variety of techniques may be used and the client and hypnotherapist will work together to agree the best course of action.
