Yes. The first session includes actual hypnosis, as do all sessions.
This consists of an “induction” or relaxation technique, usually followed by positive suggestions, mental imagery, remembering successful events, and possibly more advanced techniques such as N.L.P, Parts Therapy or regression. Afterwards, I’ll ask you what you liked, how you feel, assign homework and discuss next steps. All sessions are private, very confidential and take place in a professional space.
