If you are being treated for a diagnosed medical condition, we will have to liaise with your GP, as they have responsibility for your primary care.
Hypnotherapy must never be used instead of standard medical intervention, and I may suggest on initial consultation that you seek advice from your GP before we work together.
I will use all my professional skills to work with you and help you achieve the success you desire. You must actively complete your part and complete the program and complete the homework that I may set. You must be committed to making the changes in order for the therapy sessions to be of any benefit.
How many sessions will I need?
The number and content of sessions will be tailored to your individual needs and goals. You may already have a clear idea of what you want to achieve through therapy. Or, you may find yourself struggling in a more general sense and need guidance in uncovering and targeting the issues to be treated.
If you require a simple relaxation session to ease away all stresses and worries of the day and find some mind quiet time this can be done in one session. However, problems and issues that have underlying causes and patterns of learnt behaviours will require more sessions. Some issues can be resolved in a relatively short period of time. Others will take longer. It is dependent on the nature of the issues concerned. I will discuss the number of sessions which are likely to be necessary during our initial consultation.
Before I arrange to meet with you and start our sessions I will have a detailed chat with you on the phone because I believe it is important that you feel comfortable with me as your therapist and so that I can establish a deeper understanding of you and the problems you are experiencing. I will email you a detailed initial client questionnaire that you need to complete as honestly and openly as possible. This needs to be returned to me prior to our first appointment.
Sessions will last 50 minutes.
I require 24 hours notice for any cancellations. Clients who cancel less than 24 hours before their appointment time will be charged 50% of the full fee. Clients who fail to show for an appointment will be charged the full fee.
I am bound by a strict confidentiality and code of conduct agreement. www.babcp.com.
All notes taken during our sessions are completely private and confidential. Your best interests are always at heart and integrity is always maintained.
