Hypnotherapy sessions and fees

General therapy sessions usually last for between 50 minutes and an hour. The smoking / vaping cessation session lasts for approximately two hours and phobia therapy requires three sessions following the Initial Consultation.

My current fees are:

Initial Consultation: Free 50-minute consultation

 

Follow up general therapy sessions: £80.00

 

Phobia therapy (three sessions): £240.00

 

Smoking cessation: £400.00

 

You will be notified in advance of any changes to our fees.

Payment and cancellation policy

Full payment is required at the time of booking, which secures your appointment day and time.  Payment is non-refundable.

Rescheduling of a session requires a minimum of 48 hours’ notice.

If you are late, your appointment will still run in the allocated slot.

Confidentiality

Subject to the exceptions mentioned below, everything we talk about during our sessions is strictly confidential and your details will not be shared with third parties without your permission.

Occasionally it may be necessary to contact your GP or another health professional prior to the commencement of therapy. However, this would only be done with your express written consent. 

 

In order to safeguard you and the people around you, if you were to disclose that you were going to carry out harm to yourself or someone else, then we would be obliged by law to inform the relevant authorities even if you did not consent.  Similarly, if we were issued with a police warrant or a court order, by law we would have to disclose information.

 

To meet Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and governing body requirements, anonymous case histories are sometimes discussed with peer support groups and supervisors. No personal details are shared.

Commitment and Standards of Behaviour

Hypnotherapy is effective however success is not guaranteed.  Your full commitment is important.  Listening to the relaxation track between sessions is a vital element in the process. 

You as the client must agree to:

  • Respect the privacy and confidentiality of your therapist.

  • Commit to engagement in sessions and to being motivated to gain the best results possible.

  • Attend sessions on time and not under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs.

If your conduct should breach these standards, we reserve the right to terminate the session and/or refuse future sessions.

We also reserve the right to refuse treatment where we believe hypnotherapy is not an appropriate therapeutic intervention.

Consent to treatment

Ahead of the Initial Consultation we will request your written consent to proceed with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (which may be captured electronically). Implied consent will be taken for each subsequent session based on bookings of further sessions.

For treatment of children, parental consent will be required.
