What you can expect
Every therapist has his or her own way of working just as every client has his or her own needs.
I have my own particular way of working which begins by getting to know a bit about you during the initial consultation.
You won’t necessarily have to go into great depth at that stage but what you can tell me helps me to help you decide whether BWRT® or Hypnotherapy are suitable for you and your concern and goals. I will try to give you some idea of how many sessions you will need, but this can vary even after therapy has commenced as things arise for you.
Some issues, such a phobias and specific anxieties might be resolved in a single session.
If you choose to work with me then we confirm my fee and book your first appointment. During your first appointment I will take quite a detailed history of your issue to understand more about you and the goals you wish to achieve. Sometimes this might take up the whole session but I try to work things so that you start making changes from the moment you arrive.
Subsequent sessions may be comprised of one or more therapeutic approaches, whether that is hypno-analysis, current or past life regression, conscious analytical therapy, parts therapy, goal setting or something else. However on those occasions when BWRT® is used it will be the only therapeutic technique used that day.
BWRT® Level 2 usually takes about 4 weeks. This is used for deep seated “core” issues such as binge eating or drinking, gambling addiction, masturbation fixation, low-self worth, and depression, among others. Level 2 is intensive therapy with a lot of “home-work” that is essential to your success with this way of working. If level two work is indicated I will only proceed with it if you are committed enough to do the work at home.
Where drug and alcohol addiction are concerned level 2 can work alongside any 12 steps programme or its equivalent and you will need to be sober during sessions.
Payment is by cash or by card for face-to-face appointments, or by Paypal or BACS for remote sessions.
The first session can last between 1 and 2 hours with subsequent sessions lasting around 90mins.
