An investment in yourself
How many hypnotherapy sessions do I need?
I suggest planning for 4-6 sessions but some people choose to work with me longer term. Sessions are typically one to two weeks apart to being with, but it’s entirely up to you.
Is hypnosis a quick fix?
Some clients do find resolution in a couple of hypnotherapy sessions, but there is no evidence to suggest hypnosis is a click your fingers and ‘ job done’ therapy.
All problems have unique complexity and variation so one size rarely fits all, and clients often want help with nore than one thing.
After reaching their goal, some of my clients go on to join the ‘MOT’ brigade, meaning that after resolving the bigger problems, they pop back once or twice a year for a ‘top up’ or ‘tweak’.
Which issues takes longer?
Complex issues & longer histories may take longer. But not always. So whilst I’ve worked with people who’ve lifted crippling anxiety in just 2 or 3 sessions, most find they need a good 4-6 sessions, with complex phobias such as emetophobia or agoraphobia and obsessive compulsive disorder related conditions (OCD) such as hair pulling (trichotillomania) or skin picking (dermatollimania) needing specific support.
Research has shown that the menopause benefits from a defined programme of 5 hypnotherapy sessions, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) benefits from a defined programme of 6 gut directed hypnosis sessions.
And food related problems such as eating disorders, binge eating or other forms of disordered eating need a gentle approach which takes time. And of course, with food related problems you can’t just stop, its about building a more comfortable relationship with food and helping with the commonly associated problems such as shame, overwhelm, negative self talk and anxiety.
Can you help me with more than one problem?
Yes. We will establish your therapeutic priorities in your Initial Consultation, but because we will work hollistically.
How often should I have sessions?
Weekly or fortnightly is most usual.
In person or online Hypnotherapy?
I am an Online Hypnotherapist in Oxford, UK. I am registered in the UK, hold UK insurance and am the member of various UK professional bodies including the CNHC and NCH. My clients are in the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA. On booking, you will automatically receive an email containing your unique Zoom login details, and you’ll receive a helpful reminder email 30mins before your session as well.
In-person hypnotherapy sessions need to be specifically agreed before booking & spaces are limited. Please contact me direct to ask about in-person availability.
Important update re in person bookings
I am not able to take on new in person clients until September 2023. If you are already working with me in person, please book as normal.
Initial Consultation - £50, Book this first if you are a new client
£50, a 45min session
This is the starting place when you are thinking of working with me so start by booking your initial consultation here.
Your Initial Consultation enables us to put the admin in place before starting therapy. This means we can check that hypnotherapy is right for you, get your consent forms in place, and just check that there are no medical reasons that would stop you from working with me. We shall also talk through how much time you might need, and if you are unsure, what to book. If you decide that hypnotherapy is not for you, you are not obliged to book anything else!
Hypnotherapy - £75
£75 for a 60min session.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is the classic combination of Therapy and Hypnosis, hence the name – Hypnotherapy! My most popular option, book your hypnotherapy sessions one at a time, to suit your diary and timescale, but please start with an Initial Consultation if you are a new client or have not worked with me recently.
Hypnotherapy session pack - £65
Book 4, 5 or 6 sessions – £65 per session.
Created upon client requests – this option allows you to block book 4-6 Hypnotherapy sessions at £65 per session instead of £75. Please be aware this is a commitment to your purchased sessions, so if you are new to hypnotherapy or feel you can resolve things more quickly, please book single sessions instead.
If you are a new client, please book an Initial Consultation first (otherwise we will have to use your first session of 5 for admin) then book your Hypnotherapy 5 session pack here.
Rewind Therapy - £90
£180 for 2 x 60min sessions.
Rewind Therapy requires a follow up assessment session so please book a minimum of 2 sessions.
The number of sessions required will depend on how your traumatic or stressful event presents itself and is not necessarily determined by how long the trauma went on for or how many separate events you experienced.
Please leave a minimum of 2 weeks between your Rewind sessions. And if you want hypnotherapy as well, you can just book it in for the intervening weeks or later on.
Integrated Parts Hypnotherapy - £150
£300 for 2 x 60mins.
Parts Hypnotherapy requires a follow up session so please book a minimum of 2 sessions. The number of sessions required will depend on what you are struggling with and what you want to achieve. I suggest leaving one to two weeks between sessions, and where I feel you are more suitable for Clinical Hypnotherapy I will tell you.
Integrated Parts Hypnotherapy can feel like the key to unlocking some of the more stubborn conscious or subconscious and whilst not limited to fertility, is a popular technique for fertility fears, doubts or perceived blocks and is usually used in conjunction with clinical hypnotherapy as well.
Hypnosis 4 session pack- £100 (for IVF or Birth)
£400 for 4 x 60mins.
Self Hypnosis is a 4 week programme of creating and developing your own internal journey of hypnosis that is perfectly designed for you.
Once you have booked your Initial Consultation;
A programme of self hypnosis can also be helpful for chronic pain, insomnia or anything else when you don’t feel you ‘need’ the therapy bit but think you would benefit from a powerful programme of learning to harness the mind in a positive, focused and deeply restful way.
Practice is required between sessions but with commitment, it should should start to feel like a joy, rather than work, and having this level of deep, inner control is worth its weight in gold!
Mini session - £60
Just 35mins. Online only.
This is just for talk OR just clincial hypnosis.
If you are a new client, please book an Initial Consultation first and use this lightening option alongside your normal therapy sessions.
Wednesday Offer – Ask me about my offer for online sessions on Wednesday mornings. Ask for details.
Unless otherwise requested all sessions booked are online and you will be sent a unique zoom login for your session. Since covid, I moved to online hypnotherapy, but based in a leafy corner of Oxford, Oxfordshire, if you need in person sessions, please speak to me before booking.
