Your first session will be an initial assessment session, in which I find out as much as possible about what the issue is and how it’s affecting you.  I also explain how hypnosis works and what’s involved in hypnotherapy and you can ask any questions you might have, so that you’re completely comfortable with the whole process. It’s also a screening session, to make sure you would even be a client for me. Let’s face it sometimes people have no desire for change now. So the initial call is to see how are values align……..for those that are truly ready to change now……we will set up initial session. Unfortunately not everyone will qualify.
