Seeing a hypnotherapist can seem like a big decision – I totally get that. You’re investing your time, money and trust in someone you’ve never met. Hopefully you’ve done a bit of research, so you know hypnotherapy can be very effective. But you might be wondering if I can guarantee that I’ll solve your problem.
Can I give you a guarantee?
The honest answer is no, I can’t give you a 100% guarantee that I’ll give you your desired result. But no therapist can, however well-qualified and experienced. Every client is different, and some just won’t respond to a particular approach. Part of my job is to tailor my treatment to your needs – if I do that correctly we’re well on the way to getting a positive result.
But you also have a part to play. You need to be motivated to make a change. That doesn’t mean you have to do all the work – there’d be no point coming to see me if that were the case. But if you want to make a change in your life then you have to involve yourself in that change. So if you come to me for help to stop smoking you have to really want to stop, not just come along because someone’s nagging you. Or if you want to increase your confidence, at some point you have to go out and try your new confident behaviour. Otherwise how will you know if it’s worked?
Working with your motivation
But the fact you’ve taken the trouble to read this means you’ve made a good start. It suggests you want to make a change. And wanting something means you’re motivated to get it. So there’s an excellent chance that I can help you by building on that motivation.
While I can’t guarantee that I’ll solve your problem, I do guarantee that I’ll use all my training and experience to give you the best possible chance of success. I’ll treat you with respect at all times, listen to you with empathy, and respect your confidence. I aim to get results from the minimum possible number of sessions, so you’re not spending any more of your time and money than necessary.
And I guarantee to give you the best therapy experience I can.
