The recommended frequency for therapy sessions can vary depending on your individual needs and the type of therapy you're receiving. Typically, therapy sessions are initially scheduled on a weekly or biweekly basis to establish a therapeutic relationship and address immediate concerns. Over time, the frequency may decrease to monthly or even less frequent "maintenance" sessions as progress is made and goals are achieved.

Prior to your initial session, each client receives a client information sheet and the Wheel of Life assessment to complete and return. This allows your therapist to better prepare for the session and saves valuable session time that would otherwise be spent on routine questions.

Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic approach that uses hypnosis, a state of deep relaxation and focused attention, to help individuals address various psychological, emotional, and even physical issues. During a hypnotherapy session, a trained therapist guides the client into a state of heightened suggestibility, where they become more open to positive suggestions and insights. This altered state of consciousness allows the individual to explore and address specific concerns, such as overcoming phobias, managing stress, improving sleep, or addressing behavioral issues.

In therapy, you can expect a safe and confidential environment where you can openly discuss your thoughts, feelings, and concerns.


Here are some things you can generally expect from a therapy session:

Establishing a Therapeutic Relationship:

Your therapist will work to build a trusting and collaborative relationship with you. This foundation is crucial for effective therapy.

Assessment and Goal Setting:

At the beginning of therapy, you'll discuss your reasons for seeking therapy, your goals, and any specific issues or challenges you'd like to address.


Therapists are bound by confidentiality, which means that what you discuss in therapy is kept private unless there is a concern for your safety or the safety of others.

Active Listening:

Your therapist will listen attentively to your concerns without judgment, creating a non-judgmental and supportive space for you to share your thoughts and feelings.

Emotional Exploration:

Therapy is a place to explore and process your emotions, even those that may be difficult or uncomfortable.

Techniques and Strategies:

Depending on the type of therapy, your therapist may teach you specific techniques or strategies to address your concerns. For example, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) may involve identifying and changing negative thought patterns, while other therapies may involve art, mindfulness, or other approaches.

Progress and Feedback:

Over time, you'll work with your therapist to measure your progress and make adjustments as needed. Regular feedback from you about how the therapy is going is essential.


Your therapist may assign exercises or activities to do between sessions to reinforce what you've discussed and learned.

Empowerment and Self-Reflection:

Therapy encourages self-awareness and self-reflection, empowering you to make positive changes in your life.


Your therapist is there to provide support, understanding, and guidance as you work through your concerns.

Remember that therapy is a personalised experience, and the specific expectations may vary depending on your therapist's approach and your unique needs. Communicating openly with your therapist about your goals and what you hope to achieve in therapy is important.
