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.

If you would like to find out how you can be free of any of the issues above, or any other issues listed here the please don’t hesitate to contact us.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hypnotherapy for cocaine addiction

Letting go of cocaine addictions

A few weeks ago I received an enquiry from someone looking to change his behaviour when it came to cocaine taking. According to him, when he split up with a long term partner over 8 years ago, he turned to alcohol mainly to help deal with the breakup and escape from the emotional trauma that came alongside it. To a degree, no doubt it worked at that particular time as he would get so drunk he would forget everything, pass out and have nothing to think about…. Until he awoke anyway!

After a lot of work he managed to get a hold of his drinking and curb it, to the point where if he went out and noticed he had consumed 2-3 drinks he would take himself away from the situation and go home, as he didn’t like to lose control like that anymore. The problem with that though was that when he got home he still needed to deal with his emotions, and he started to slowly increase his cocaine consumption. From only doing it no more than once a month, it became once a week, to the point where he was then going and buying more on a daily basis. He had even found himself purposely going out to the pub to have a few drinks just so he could do some more.

It was time for a change……

During our first session we quickly highlighted the root of his behaviours. Now this doesn’t mean it was anything deep or dark, more so the one thing that when disconnected would allow of all his behaviours to change. Using NLP and hypnosis together we quickly learned the levels of conflict going on when it came to behaviour v intention and allowed them to realign.

At our second session, we used TimeLine Therapy to go back and release the learnings from his past. This meant that he could learn everything from the first event in his past that would allow him to live his future with a different choice and future behaviours.

By only the 3rd session he hadn’t taken any cocaine, or thought about taking cocaine even when being around it. In his mind, he was free form his cocaine addiction.

That was it! 3 sessions and he was free from his old behaviours. I spoke to him a few days ago after about 6 weeks and he was still enjoying life and making all of the right choices on an unconscious level where he didn’t even need to think about it.

What would you like to change that quickly? Why not contact us here and I’ll show you how we can do it!

Speak soon,
