Therapy Sessions

Get help with emotional or psychological issues, all in a safe and supportive therapy space.

If you’ve been considering talking therapy to help you overcome an issue which is causing problems or holding you back in life, you may be wondering what happens during a session. In this video, I talk about what to expect during your first session.

I use a variety of talking therapies depending on your situation


Hypnosis is a natural and safe state of mind in which you are aware of everything that you experience. In hypnosis, the subconscious mind become receptive to suggestion and hypnotherapy uses this process to suggest new thought or behaviour changes and responses.


Counselling is about working together to explore your issues and feelings at your pace, to enable you to gain more clarity and make sense of your situation. Working with and resolving issues can often be achieved in a fairly short course of sessions and some issues may require longer term therapy.

Rewind Therapy

Rewind Therapy is a tried and tested approach for helping people who are experiencing high anxiety conditions such as PTSD, Trauma and Phobias. One of the benefits of Rewind Therapy is that you do not need to explain every detail of the traumatic event(s) in order for the therapist to work with you.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP is an approach to communication which looks at how we organise our thoughts, feelings, language and behaviour patterns. It covers a wide range of tools and techniques that can be used as a standalone therapy, but are most often combined with other talking therapies to help you achieve your goal(s).

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a way of addressing problems or issues by helping you to change thinking and behaviour patterns that may have become unhelpful. It is based on the concept that how we think affects our emotions and how we respond to different situations.


Mindfulness and meditation are a form of relaxation therapy, helping you to relax by reducing the body's stress levels, focusing on the present and allowing you to regain a sense of balance and clarity. By reducing stress and tension, we can increase our ability to concentrate, make decisions more easily and think more clearly.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT is a practical therapy which involves using the fingers to tap on a number of acupressure points. It's a straightforward, but powerful technique that can help to reduce psychological distress quickly. It can also be used as a self help tool for people who may be struggling with negative emotions or feelings.

What happens during a therapy session?

Your first therapy session

During your first session, we’ll discuss your situation in more detail, including your past experiences and your goals, along with your role in therapy sessions. You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and then we’ll move on to the therapy part of your session. This may involve a blend of Hypnotherapy, NLP and Counselling, combined with other talking therapies as appropriate. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach in therapy because everyone is different.

At the end of your session, we’ll talk about what you can do at home before your next appointment. I may give you an audio download to listen to, or you may be asked to complete other therapy tasks such as keeping a diary or practising self help techniques. These activities are designed to enhance the work done during your sessions and enable you to develop new skills and responses to help you achieve your goal(s).

Further Sessions

In future sessions, we’ll talk about your progress since your last session and then continue with your therapy. Your sessions are about working together to help you make the changes that you need to get to where you want to be. Hypnotherapy, Counselling and other talking therapies have a good track record in helping people to make lasting changes. However, motivation and participation are the real keys to your success, so you need to play your part too.

Every situation is different and people respond differently, depending on the type of therapies used. Many people see me for between 4 to 6 sessions and often notice positive changes after the first or second session and sometimes people may take a little longer. People often begin to feel differently within a few weeks and sometimes just a few sessions are all that is required. Just because you’ve experienced a problem or issue for a long time, it doesn’t always mean that it will take a long time to let go of it.
