There are times when we all need assistance to help ourselves change from one state into another. The role of psychological therapy (psychotherapy) is to provide a range of solutions to enable us to achieve change rapidly, safely and effectively.
A client’s individual needs and preferences are taken into consideration when developing a therapeutic approach for that person. We are all individuals and it follows that therapy should also be individually designed for the individual. A special service is provided for anyone that is a victim of crime waiting for trial proceedings to start or conclude. See Crime Victim support page.
What happens during a typical session?
In the first session, a detailed case history will be taken. Then one or more approaches will be used to effect early change and at the end of the session, we will review how you have responded and if required a follow-on session will be booked. Most initial sessions will incorporate hypnotherapy in one form or another.
Follow-on sessions use a wider range of approaches that are generally combined with hypnotherapy to facilitate greater levels of change. At the end of each session we will review progress and schedule a further session if required.
