What To Expect
On this page, you will discover commonly asked questions you may have before attending therapy or what to expect. If your question isn't displayed below please do contact me and I will gladly assist you with your inquiry.
To start with you will establish a trust-based relationship with your Therapist. You will get used to talking about yourself in the open and safe environment provided.
Your Therapist will use many exercises and methods to help you to gain the awareness needed to move forwards. You will be empowered to access your feelings and thoughts in a way that will help you understand yourself from a new perspective. You will make contact with your strengths, hopes and motivations and with a deeper understanding of yourself, a course of action will come into focus. You will explore all opportunities available to you and learn what you need to do to grow. I will support you on your journey so that you become guided by a better understanding of yourself. During sessions you can practice new ways of being that reflect your authentic feelings, needs and aspirations.
Therapy is carried face-to-face or via Zoom. Each session will last 50 minutes. Your sessions will start with a brief check-in followed by a collaborative discussion about what you want to focus on during the session. You will direct the conversation and I will support you.
You will need to be ready and willing to invest in your growth during sessions in order for you to see the positive outcome. I recommend you give yourself 15 minutes before the start of the session to relax and spend some time thinking about what you would like to talk about.
When you are ready you will experiment with new behaviours with the skills that you have learned for managing your thoughts or feelings, handling old situations in a new way, and doing things differently than you have in the past. When you take this positive action, your life will positively change.
To start with you will establish a trust-based relationship with your Therapist. You will get used to talking about yourself in the confidential, safe environment provided.
Your Therapist will support you to enter a relaxed state of mind so that they can explore the needs of your subconscious mind. They will then provide suggestions to help reprogram your mind’s thought process and ultimately, your behaviour.
Your relaxed state during hypnosis enables these suggestions to travel directly to your subconscious. With the absence of your conscious critical mind these positive suggestions can become a new belief or help to change a particular behaviour for the better.
Therapists use Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) during sessions. NLP offers a way of unlearning negative beliefs and learning positive alternatives. You will connect with your strengths, hopes and motivations and become equipped with a deeper understanding of yourself, resulting in a new course of action coming into focus.
Hypnotherapy takes place face-to-face in a private room. Each session lasts 50 minutes. Your sessions will start with a brief check in followed by a relaxation technique induced by your Therapist. Your Therapist will then conduct Hypnotherapy using a script created from your collaborative discussion about what you want to focus on during the session.
Reiki takes place face-to-face. Each session lasts 40 minutes. Your session will start with a check in followed by your relaxation on a therapy bed. You will specify what you wish for the hand placement. You may fall asleep and that is ok, the Reiki treatment can still be effective.
