Frequently Asked Questions

We use hypnosis as a therapeutic tool to access subconscious memories.

Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy uses hypnotic regression to access these memories and make sense of the beliefs that have been formed. In this state, you have a heightened awareness and focus, and an increased responsiveness to change. Accessing information in the unconscious part of our mind help us better understand our actions and motivations, which in turn help us change our habits and belief systems. ​

There are neural pathways created in the brain that we attempt to understand and “rewire” with repetitive messages in a subconscious state.

The brain is changeable. It is possible to let go of negative and destructive thoughts. New pathways can be forged. New beliefs can be created. This is known as Neuroplasticity.

Hypnosis is essentially being in a trance-like state, which you’ve experienced countless times as you’ve drifted off to sleep or lost track of time daydreaming.

You are not asleep during hypnosis. You are awake and aware of everything that is happening around you. You are still in control. You can’t be made to do anything against your will.

We will first chat briefly about the topic you want to explore during hypnosis.

You will then enter hypnosis via a deep relaxation technique. I will guide you safely through a period of regression, after which we will work to understand what it means to you and to dispel old and irrelevant beliefs attached to events in your past. . I will then make a recording of suggestions tailor-made for your individual needs and all you have to do is listen to the recording for three consecutive weeks, relax and enjoy the experience. At the end of the session you are brought safely out of your hypnotised state, feeling in control and relaxed at all times.

You will be given a customised recording to listen to for twenty one1 days. You will receive follow-up text support at the end of each week of the first twenty days. Continued support, via email, is available to you.

I am based in Bristol, United Kingdom and I work, primarily, out of Cotham Hill, Westbury-on-Trym and Clifton by arrangement, but I am also available for online Skype sessions for clients who don’t live locally or who live abroad.

Each person is an individual and everyone works through problems at a different pace. Generally, clients come for one to three sessions, depending on the seriousness of their concern, and in some cases additional sessions might be required.
