Online Hypnotherapy

I provide hypnotherapy completely online, via video conferencing software. When you book an online session with me, you will receive a link to Zoom to access our session during the scheduled time. 

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy uses the state of trance; the half-awake and half-asleep comfortable feeling we experience when watching television, or drifting off in a lecture.


In a trance state, the conscious mind likes to drift off, whilst the unconscious mind is always taking in information in the background. This is a great opportunity to change automatic behaviours or patterns of belief to be compatible with the life we want to lead.


Most people find hypnotherapy to be very enjoyable, relaxing and interesting!

Can hypnosis be done online?

Absolutely! However, you will need a private space in which you won't be disturbed. You will need a device with a video camera and microphone capability (such as a laptop/ smartphone/ computer) and a reliable internet connection.

What is required for our online hypnotherapy session?

I recommend that you download the Zoom software application prior to our session. You can find the download link here https://zoom.us/download

 

I usually recommend that you use broadband rather than roaming internet connection (3G/4G) to avoid needless signal interruptions and buffering.

During hypnosis, will I still be in control?​

Yes, you will remain completely in control. Hypnotherapy is very different to 'stage hypnosis' and whilst being in trance you are fully aware and in control of yourself. Should you need to become alert at any point during the session you can open your eyes and be fully awake.

What if I'm not hypnotisable?

It may be surprising to hear, but all of us go in and out of trance states throughout the day (just think about times when you've zoned out in front of the tv, or in a lecture, or scrolling social media). We often don't realise that we have drifted into a light trance in our daily life, so hypnosis something you already can do! You might also drift deeper on different days, and this is normal.

 

Most of our 'hypnosis' sessions are done in the very lightest of trance states and some of our session will be talking. You will likely find that in later sessions you go into trance more naturally.

If our internet connection drops, can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No, you cannot get stuck in hypnosis! In the unlikely scenario that the internet connection drops, in most cases you will naturally come out of hypnosis. However, just in case you are very relaxed, I usually recommend that you set a timer on your phone for the end of our session time. If you give your consent for me to call you, we can also agree in advance that I will give you a call. If this is your preference, you would need to ensure your phone is nearby and that the volume is turned up.
