A common question many people ask is, “How many appointments will I need?”
The answer is that it depends on the specific nature of the presenting issue.
Patients with a simple phobia can typically make significant improvements or recover with 3 hours of treatment, spread across two appointments.
Anxiety-related issues and more complex problems may need more appointments, depending on the specific nature of the presenting issue.
The GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register) states that patients should have a minimum of 3 hours treatment, to meet the standard for good practice.
We have to go through a medical history and relevant case history for the presenting issue. Explain what hypnosis is and that you’re in control at all times. Answer any questions you may have. And do hypnotherapy treatment to help you overcome the presenting issue.
Treatment should also include teaching you appropriate self-help techniques. Helping you become independent from further treatment.
The majority of successful patients have a minimum of 3 hours of treatment.
Some patients make significant improvement with just the initial 2-hour appointment. If you feel you’ve improved enough, you can stop treatment early.
However, patients achieve best results with a follow-up appointment as part of the treatment.
The follow-up appointment enables us to assess how well you’re getting on. Make any adjustments if required and protect against possible setbacks. And increase the probability of making a lasting recovery.
A vital aspect of treatment is communication. If you have any questions or concerns, please do talk to us.
We follow the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) Code of Conduct, Ethics and Performance. And support the patient’s involvement with decisions about their care.
If you need extra appointments, we’ll let you know. We’ll explain why and talk through the options with you. And enable you to make a balanced decision that’s best for you.
We always aim to do treatment in the smallest possible number of appointments for two good reasons:
1) Neurology learns best when it learns quickly.
2) We want you to be successful and happy. And know you’re more likely to refer people to us. Because this is how an ever-growing number of patients come to us for treatment.
