What can I expect in my sessions with you?
In the initial session, we will discuss your requirements, gather necessary history, I will explain hypnosis and answer any questions you may have. Once I have gathered all necessary information, we can then proceed with a short counselling session followed by hypnosis based on the information I have gathered.
The initial session is designed to allow me to get to know what your goals and requirements are and to give you an experience of hypnosis. This is always very relaxing for clients who have not previously experienced hypnosis before.
In each subsequent session, we will have a short counselling session to see how you are progressing and I will answer any questions you may have. I will also find out what we will be working on within the session.
Once I have gathered all necessary information we will proceed with hypnosis. I will then bring you out of hypnosis, discuss the session and I will answer any questions you may have.
On occasion I will give you tasks (homework) to do. This is a very important part of your therapy process. Homework tasks are designed to assist you in achieving your desired outcomes in the shortest time possible.
How long does each session go for?
The initial session will go for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes in duration (this includes the 20 minute obligation free consultation if booked at the same time and no hypnosis will take place in the first 20 minutes). The session can then be terminated by either party after the first 20 minutes. Should the client wish to proceed beyond the first 20 minutes, the full fee is then payable for the first session.
The complimentary obligation free 20 minute consultation to discuss your requirements can be booked separately to the above. Please note: Hypnosis will not take place during this session.
Standard initial sessions are approximately 55-60 minutes in duration.
Subsequent sessions are approximately 50-55 minutes in duration.
Extended sessions are approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes in duration (please specify 'extended session' when booking your appointment).

How many sessions will I need?
This all depends on the person, the issue, how long the issue has been present and many other factors. Approximately 3 to 8 sessions or more, however, this can vary from person to person. Some issues may require as little as 1 or 2 sessions.
Do I need a referral?
In order to provide the best treatment possible, in certain circumstances, I will request that you obtain a letter from your General Practitioner outlining your condition/issue.
How much will it cost?
All initial and subsequent sessions are charged at $160.
Extended sessions are charged at $210.
How do I make payment?
Cash, personal cheques, EFTPOS, Mastercard and Visa. A receipt will be issued to you.
Is hynotherapy covered by health funds?
Yes. Please check with your health fund provider first to see if you are covered and to ensure that you have not used up your 'allowance' for the year. Hypnotherapy is covered by approximately 18 health fund providers.
What are your hours?
Daytime, after hours and weekend appointments available.
What if I need to cancel?
If you need to cancel a session, please give at least 12 hours notice. If you reschedule the next appointment at the time of cancelling, you will not be charged. If you cancel the session giving less than 12 hours notice, you will be charged the full fee at your next session.
What can I expect from my 20 minute obligation free consultation?
We will discuss your requirements and I will explain how I can be of assistance to you. If it turns out to be something I do not work with, I am more than happy to refer you to another health professional with expertise in the relevant area.
What if I need more information?
Please feel free to email me or telephone me should you have any further questions or wish to discuss your specific requirement.
