Including Fees, the Terms of Condition, the length of sessions, how many will be needed and my location are all answered below 

How much will these treatments cost? And the Terms and Conditions 

You will find that I am not the cheapest therapist around, however you will also find that I am not the most expensive. If low cost is important to you then I will be more than happy to discuss this and help whether possible or help you find a cheaper therapist. However if you want a quality service from an ethical, friendly and fully insured therapist then my fee are as follows –

– £75 per session – All first sessions will be for 90 minutes and then further sessions for 60 minutes – I give an extra 30 minutes in the first session for questions, answers and explanations 

– £150 for stop smoking – 90 minutes; with an inclusive follow-up session, if required and usually lasting between 45 – 60 minutes (but it’s rarely needed)

On the day I can take payments in cash or by cheque with a valid cheque guarantee card. Or otherwise beforehand by PayPal or bank transfer by agreement. 

Cancellations, Re-Arranging Sessions and any Cancellation Fees: 

I appreciate that sometimes people may need to rearrange appointments at short notice and that some reasons and circumstances are unavoidable such as illness and sudden emergencies, I understand that things can happen. However I will use my discretion with regard to fees for late cancellations. This, however, will be at my own discretion. However I’m happy to listen and rearrange your session as well.

So please give me as much notice as you can. And if it comes from my end I will do the same.

However please be aware that If you wish to cancel, re-arrange or postpone a session, this needs to be done at least 72 hours in advance. If not there will be a cancellation charge and I reserve the right to charge for 50% of the session cost. I need to rent therapy rooms and this is obviously at a cost.

I can often fill session slots and offer appointments to other people at quite short notice. 

I do occasionally get people just not turning up to an agreed sessions. Now this does always leave me with dead time in which I cannot do anything of real value; I’ve also had to use my time getting to the session, and it also leaves me out of pocket – because I do have to pay for the room rental. In these situations I will charge the full session fee. 

Arriving on Time, the session do start at the agreed time so please do ensure that you give yourself enough time to arrive on time. Everywhere I work from has carparks very close by and please click HERE for my maps page for details

How long are the appointments and how many sessions?

The first appointments will last 1 ½ hours, appointments after will be for 60 minutes. I give you 30 minutes in the first session for questions and explanations.

As a guide the first part of the first session will be devoted to an assessment however we will get started with some hypnotherapy and treatments during that first session.

For some there will a significant shift after the first session however this won’t always be the case and usually it will take a (short) number of sessions to really notice all the benefits. I will discuss this with you during our first session.

As a rough guide and depending on the person and their presenting issue, treatments will usually take between 2-5 sessions, again we will discuss this during the first session. Rest assure that I always tailor my sessions and the treatment program towards to the person as the individual they are. And this is something you should expect.

For Stopping Smoking the sessions will last for about 75 – 90 minutes and there is a follow-up session included within the full price.
