Quick results with with Cambridge Hypnotherapy
So how many sessions should hypnotherapy actually take?
I regularly get asked one question relating to something that we state on our website, and that is “how can you help people in only 3 sessions?”. I think one of the biggest problema is that so many people have tried counselling or other routes where sometimes they attend regularly for months after month after month, if not years!
For the life of me I cannot understand why any change should take that long, it sounds absolutely crazy to me! I think one of the only reasons that people think change should take this long is that they are told that is how long it may take. They start to limit their change in accordance with that belief, and how could they possibly be feeling amazing again in only 2 weeks when they still have another 6 months of sessions booked in???
Our genuine belief at Cambridge Hypnotherapy is the fewer the better. I never tell any client how many sessions they need, more that they are in control and they are the only limit to how quickly they can change.
Over the past 11 years of being a full time hypnotherapist, I believe I have honed my approach to be the most systematic and effective way possible. To start with, more often than not we don’t work on what the original enquiry was all about. Most of the time the original enquiry was a symptom, and the reason the client knew they had an issue in their life. Take alcohol consumption for example. It’s probably in the top 3 most common issues people enquire into, yet rarely have I worked on alcohol itself. There is a reason why people drink and that is what we want to address. If the reason changes, the alcohol consumption disappears. If the reason remains, then the alcohol consumption increases back to where it was after a few months or maybe even weeks.
No matter what the issue is from increasing confidence, letting go of anxiety, losing weight or even being free from depression, it is rare that we work with clients for more than 3 sessions. Occasionally a client may come back for a 4th session, however some clients achieve everything they want to in only 2 sessions.
As with anything in life, there is no guarantee that everyone will change with hypnotherapy, however it is rare we get someone go away without achieving their results. In that rarity though it just pushes me harder to find out a reason so that we ensure future clients continue to benefit.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
