Q. What can I expect to happen?
A. One of the most important things is that you can expect to feel comfortable and at ease with the therapist as this is very important in hypnotherapy. It is for this reason that most people book a consultation to discuss the issue, and then decide if they wish to proceed. once you have decided to proceed with hypnotherapy you will not at anytime undergo a prolonged course once your treatment is successful.
