Curious about what it is all about?
What happens during sessions?
We won't go straight into chargeable sessions. I usually meet with the client informally to discuss what they would like to achieve. This can happen in formal or informal settings and I do not charge for this. It's a free consultation. Then, if we decide we can work together we move on to making the changes you want.
Taking into account that people are different and the changes they want to make are different, it is not a one size fits all experience. What I can tell you is, sessions can be conducted over telephone, SKYPE or in person. One thing I can assure you is that there is no long discussions over past events, I leave that kind of stuff to counsellors. I believe that the past, although influencing who we are today, is the past. We take what we need to learn from the past and move on. Sometimes people can experience life changing moments, other times people see substantial improvements to areas they want to improve in their lives from just a couple of sessions.
I use a personalised blend of cutting edge techniques taken from NLP, Time Line Therapy and NLP Coaching. Sessions are positive and often fun!
How much does it cost?
The answer is, no more than £120 per hour. (I do offer discounted rates)
Why is this so cheap? Does this mean it is no good?
The truth is that I do not need to work. I do not need to do this, however I have always worked to help people ever since leaving university. Is it any good? I certainly think so and have had lots of great results for my clients. I am a member of ANLP, a certified Master Practitioner of NLP, Time Line Therapy, Hypnosis and NLP Coaching.
Will I have to sit on a sofa and talk about my life?
There may be an occasion when you have to sit on a sofa, I use different venues (to get closer to my client), and some of these venues may have sofas! It is more usual for sessions to be held with both of us sat on chairs. As I said earlier, there may be a little discussion about the past but in general this is kept to a minimum for the changes required.
What is Time Line Therapy?
Time Line Therapy is one of many techniques that I use and is amazing as it allows people to take learning from past events without experiencing the negative emotions of that event. It is not therapy as you know it, but a powerful tool to remove negative emotions, limiting decisions and beliefs amongst other things. The alternative name for the technique is Creating Your Future as it is used to help take learning from the past and apply it to future events.
Do I have to have hypnosis?
No, no one ever has to have anything they do not want. There is a myth about hypnosis, in that some people believe that it is something that is done to you. The reality is, hypnosis is something that you do to yourself. In fact I bet you have been in trance before! Have you every gone on autopilot when travelling somewhere or read a book only to find you are 20 pages on and don't remember reading that much? Well, that is trance and it is 100% natural and 100% done to yourself.
I am already seeing a Dr about this issue, can I still come and see you?
Yes, on the condition that you discuss the matter with the Dr first. Where possible a letter of referral should be forwarded to me.
I am under 18, does that make a difference?
My personal and professional view on this is that I would see you with an accompanying adult. This can be a trusted friend or family member.
