Frequently Asked Questions

Help Center

 

What does hypnosis feel like?

Clients generally feel comfortable and relaxed during the sessions. There is nothing to be frightened of as it’s a completely natural state of calmness. Sometimes, scenes may be emotional, but you are not reliving anything, merely reviewing them with the support of the therapist.

What happens if I can’t be hypnotized?

Everyone can be hypnotized because it’s a natural state, so you don’t need to worry. This is about teamwork and for sessions to be really successful, it helps that clients want to participate and make the change. So, as long as you wish to enter hypnosis, you will. So just relax and enjoy the experience.

Are the sessions confidential?

There is a confidentiality policy in place. All clients are assured of confidentiality about any disclosed material, in accordance with professional codes of conduct. Safeguarding policies are also in place for the protection of children and vulnerable adults. Only in cases where clients’ welfare is deemed “at-risk” might it be necessary to contact the relevant authorities and usually with the consent of the client. However, in normal cases, client confidentiality is upheld, and files are stored appropriately and destroyed according to the appropriate laws.

Are the online sessions as effective as face-to-face?

Yes, Google Chat sessions are just as effective as face-to-face meetings and over 60% of sessions are currently held online. Online fits around people’s busy lives and clients enjoy the freedom that this affords.

How will I know whether I need more than one session?

RTT gives us access to the root cause of the belief system sitting behind the symptoms. In effect, the presenting issues are often symptomatic of an underlying issue. Once we find the issue or the belief, it’s relatively easy to release them and change the belief to something more beneficial. Generally, it will take one session per issue. Sometimes, for longer-term issues, clients benefit from two or a maximum of three sessions, such as long-term depression or anxiety.

What if I find something I don’t want to talk about?

If you don’t want to talk about something then you don’t have to. Occasionally clients uncover something they feel uncomfortable sharing and this is respected during the session we can often work around the intimate details of a scene, without having to disclose everything.
