Number of sessions?

Success Rate?

Q. How much does therapy cost?  

Ffynnon Hypnotherapy charges fees which are similar to other 'talking therapies' in this part of Wales. We understand that times are difficult for many and therefore attempt to ensure that the number of sessions is the least possible to achieve the client's desired outcomes. 

We charge £45 for the first session which lasts 1 1/2 hours, and subsequent sessions are £40 for one hour. 

For Smoking cessation, because invariably only a single session is required to achieve success, a single charge of £75 is made for a session which can last up to two hours. In the unlikely event that a follow up session is required this will be provided without additional charge.

Where the client rquires hypnotherapy at home for clinical reasons a small additional charge is made to cover time and travel costs to and from the client's home. This also applies to clients who request therapy well outside the Gwynedd and Mon areas.

Q. How many treatment sessions will I need?

This depends upon the nature of the problem for which you are seeking help. Hypnotherapy is relatively focussed on achieving solutions in the most efficient way possible. Therefore, most clients require between 1 - 3 sessions to succesfully achieve their expressed goals. It would be rare for a client to require mre than 6 sessions.

Generally, the therapist and client agree at the end of the frdst session exactly what goals the client would like to, and is likely to, achieve, and both agree a timescale and number of sessions to achieve this. Affordabilty and convenience are taken into account when planning at this stage. This agreement forms an informal contract between therapist and client for both to play their parts in the therapy programme.

It is usual to treat Smoking with a single therapy session.

Q. How succesful is therapy?

The best guide to this is the large number of clients who present for help because they have spoken to others who have themselves benefited from hypnotherapy. However, with any type of medical or complementary intervention it would be wrong for the practitioner to guarantee success.

Hypnotherapy is a collaborative venture between therapist and client. "Success" in achieving the client's goals requires firstly an honest examination, by therapist and client together, of what is required by both parties to achieve these goals, and whether they are realistic. Thereafter, the success is greater if both continue to show commitment to necessary change. How well the therapist and client 'get on' is also an important factor in achieving goals. An honest and mutually respectful relationship is a good basis for change.

Sometimes the therapist will ask the client to fill in a questionnaire at the beginning of therapy to 'measure' certain aspects of the client's situation, such as levels of anxiety, or a diary of types of behaviour. This can be examined jointly at the end of therapy to see what changes have resulted, providing a more objective record of "success".

Despite best efforts all round sometimes things don't work out, but it is extremely rare for there to be no benefits at all of hypnotherapy. Sometimes the benefits only become apparent much later in a client's life, when the client or their situation has changed or moved on. Skills learned in therapy are useful for life.

Finally, if the therapist does not think that the clients goals are achievable, and they are unable to agree amended goals which can reasonably be achieved, then the therapist will recommend that the cleint seeks another approach to his/her problems. It would be unethical to offer therapy where the client's view of success cannot be achieved at all.
