Due to the current Covid-19 situation, all hypnotherapy sessions are currently conducted via Zoom.
Hypnotherapy online is convenient, easy to access and just as effective as working face to face. There has even been recent research carried out which proves that online therapy is just as effective as face to face.
Here are some important questions often asked about online hypnotherapy which you may find useful if you’re looking for support:
1. What is online hypnotherapy exactly?
Online hypnotherapy is a safe and convenient alternative to face to face sessions. It is just as effective as working together in the clinic and follows the same structured approach.
The initial online consultation via Zoom, provides a safe and secure connection and gives us the opportunity to trial the process before committing to future sessions. You’ll just need a quiet, comfortable and private place at home or work to talk and relax without the need to spend time and money travelling and parking!
2. Is online hypnotherapy as effective as face to face hypnotherapy?
Absolutely, online hypnotherapy is just as effective, there is no difference. Some people feel even more relaxed and comfortable working from their own home or office which can only add to the positive outcome as we work together. In fact, recent research backs this up and with one report concluding that online hypnotherapy lead to better progress and was more effective compared to face to face therapy.
3. Can hypnosis be done online?
Hypnosis doesn’t rely on having a therapist in the room with you. We all go in and out of this hypnotic state several times a day, often when we are focused on the task in hand. Have you ever been watching a good film or reading a book and completely lost track of time? Trance is a very natural and safe state where you will remain in complete control and can easily achieve as long as you can hear the guided relaxation.
4. How does hypnotherapy work on Zoom?
Using Zoom for virtual hypnotherapy sessions couldn’t be easier. Once we’ve agreed a time for your session, you’ll just need a reliable internet connection and a quiet, comfortable place to relax. I’ll send you a unique link for each session which is safe and secure and only you will have access to it. Just click your link and follow the instructions to join your session. You can use your laptop, tablet or phone to join your session.
5. How do I know if hypnotherapy online will work for me?
Online hypnotherapy is just as effective as face to face there is no difference. It is important that you choose the right therapist for you, someone you like, trust and feel comfortable talking with. For this reason, I offer a free initial telephone chat which gives us the opportunity to talk and discuss your needs. If you are motivated for change and determined to succeed, hypnotherapy online can help you get from where you are to where you want to be.
