In a typical session, we will have time at the beginning of the session for a check in, then you would settle into a comfortable position for hypnotherapy. There will be gentle background music, a cozy cover you can pull over yourself, drinking water and an eye mask available. I will guide you into a meditative state (a light trance) where you feel relaxed yet able to have a conversation and able to make decisions along the way about what you feel comfortable sharing. We will explore areas that are relevant to what you’d like to address. Once we are done, we will bring our focus back to include everyday reality.
Please give yourself ample time after the session for self-care, gentle re-entry and feeling fully grounded and completely alert before you drive or return to work.
In the days after your session, setting aside time for reflection, remembering any special dreams, practicing bringing insights from the session into life, doing kind nuturing things for yourself (such as getting a massage, tea with a dear friend or bath with bath salts), perhaps spending time in nature, listening or moving to music are all ways to support your process.
After your first session, I would welcome a quick email about how you are doing and whether you’d like a complimentary 10-15 minute phone check in.
It is possible to do just one session and feel complete. If you have several topics you’d like to explore or a topic such as addiction or themes that have been with you for a long time, please consider 3-6 sessions.
