The standard charge is £50 per hour session, however the initial session will be for one and a half hours and the first half hour of that is free after which point you can decide whether hypnotherapy is appropriate for you.
A normal therapy session lasts up to an hour with hypnosis for about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on needs. During hypnosis the brain works very hard and to be in a hypnotic trance state for longer than 40 minutes can be counter productive. Patients report that they awaken extremely refreshed and energised but that they sleep very deeply that night.
Smoking cessation: this is a specialist form of hypnosis and is done in a 'one off' session. The charge is £90, it can take longer than than most appointments and I ask patients to allow at least 90 minutes.
