Booking Agreement

Duration

A session of hypnotherapy lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.  

Smoking Cessation sessions are approximately 1 Hour and 30 minutes. 

Bowen treatments are approximately 1 hour.

Frequency

This is a mutual decision made between therapist and patient on consultation to ensure you get the best out of the hypnotherapy in a suitable timescale or in a certain number of sessions.

Usually three sessions of Bowen taken weekly can get on top of most issues, occasionally depending on the problem and how long it has been going on for you may require a few more. 

Ethics

I adhere to the National Council for Hypnotherapy Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics to ensure a professional service and to ensure high standards. All my patients are treated with respect and understanding.
