Testimonials & FAQ
"I can't recommend Allison highly enough. After over 40 years of smoking I had given up on being able to stop! Two sessions was all it took; no nicotine patches etc and I've now been stopped for nearly 30 months. I didn't really think it would work but was very pleased to be proved wrong. Allison is discreet, empathetic and very professional in her approach; if you have any ongoing habits or issues that you would like help to deal with I suggest you give her a try." R.O. - Cumbria - Client feedback
"It took only 3 sessions with Allison to achieve such positive results.
I found her really dedicated to tackling the root cause of my problems, which I hadn’t realised had hung over me for quite a while. There were follow up between sessions with emails and texts and tools/techniques for me to use should these problems occur again in the future.
I now feel I am able to deal a lot better with situations that arise from the past and any that may occur in the future.
I sleep much better now and hadn’t realised how much this had been bothering me. How such a thing had caused me to have such a broken sleep pattern. After I saw Allison she suggested a new way of looking at this, and I wish I had sought help earlier".

Can anyone be hypnotised?
It is estimated the 85% of people will respond at some level to clinical hypnotherapy. As a qualified hypnotherapist I will take time and ensure that you feel completely safe and comfortable and prepared for trance.
Any anxieties can be discussed before, during or following sessions. Individuals will experience different levels of trance. Some patients may experience only a light trance, but this is all that is needed for therapy to take place and be just as successful.
How will I feel during hypnosis?
Everyone feels something different and has different experiences. Patients have reported feelings of calmness, complete relaxation, or time passing quickly.
In the hypnotherapy room, the patient is always in full control and cannot be made to do anything by the hypnotherapist that is out of character.
Will I wake up from trance?
Trance is a normal state that you may enter several times a day while concentrating or focusing your attention on a particular activity. After being in a trance you will always be able to wake up or be awaken by the therapist and return to a non trance state.
Will my information be kept confidential?
As a member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis I am bound by a code of contact. Under this code I will keep my patient's affairs confidential, the law of the land not withstanding.
How many sessions will I need?
Issues are treated over an average of 3 - 6 sessions. This can be discussed and agreed by the client and therapist.
Does Hypnotherapy work?
There are no miracle cures. The therapeutic process requires work and commitment on your part also. It is a partnership between client and therapist to work towards achieving a goal.
