Fees are set at £95 per hour in addition to the 30 minute FREE no obligation consultation. However I never clock watch and I always allow for extra time in each session as that little bit extra help can more often than not make the difference in being highly effective. Imagine we have spent time finding the real deep rooted issue and then we run out of time, so we have to rush the therapy or treatment!
That's not the case with myself. Which is why in my experience I rarely see clients for more than usually just 1 or 2 sessions at the most, because as a Specialist Therapist I am able to concentrate on the therapies or treatment rather than long scripted hypnotic inductions & deepeners.
I do not use scripts, so we spend far more time on the actual bespoke therapy that is right for you, rather than the lengthy induction process most therapists will use. I am able to in most cases induce hypnosis within 8 or even just 3 words. I am therefore able to power through our 'doing therapy' rather than 'talking therapies' which often sees instant results, especially when EMDR is used as a treatment.
For all general fees and services, and concessions for Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (in support of the National Survivors Trust) and Armed Forces personnel and Veterans (in support of the British Legion) and Police and Fire Service personnel - please see our comprehensive website for full details: www.1mind.org.
If your interested in reading more here's Adrian's journey:
I'm 47 years old and live in the market town of Hitchin, practising full time as an EMDR and Hypnotherapy specialist practitioner,, having had many positive past experiences myself with EMDR & hypnosis that changed my life when faced with absolute adversity, and when every other medical intervention had failed. I am thus a passionate, dedicated, warm & friendly, empathetic real life role model providing tangible testament to the true power of EMDR as a treatment for psychological trauma and Hypnotherapy as a complimentary effective medical therapy.
Following a severe sustained child hood trauma I manifested an intolerable fear of heights and a severe binge eating disorder which led to anxiety, obesity, unhappiness and an overwhelming sense of a lack of self-worth. As a result as an adult I strived to be a perfectionist to compensate for the hurt and angry perception of myself in childhood, almost working myself to death in order to succeed in a revered highly successful award winning business career. That only ended in a severe episode of personal and work related stress, which resulted in severe anxiety and depression. I was subsequently diagnosed with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Complex PTSD) and underwent extensive counselling and therapy.
After a few months of seeing no progress I turned to hypnosis at my lowest point when all else had failed. I was astounded at the immediate, powerful and highly effective results. I was firstly cured of my fear of heights, completely - tried and tested! At a further session I was then able to immediately alleviate all the psychological problems associated with the severe stress and anxiety I was experiencing - in just one session! That same day I reverted back to being the person I always was, strong, confident, wonderful and happy.
I went on through EMDR to successfully tackle the difficult underlying diagnosis of PTSD, and in the period after I instead experienced what is termed Post Traumatic 'Growth'. After facing and overcoming so much adversity I realised I had the ability to help others address their own fears surrounding stress, anxiety and PTSD, including Armed Forces veterans of which I am one. The 1MIND organisation I have established is proud to help ex serviceman and women suffering from PTSD in our work supporting the Royal British Legion, and adult survivors of Child Abuse in support of the National Survivors Trust, working to tackle the growing issues of Mental Health - at 1MIND a real difference is being made to peoples lives daily. So please reach out and see how we can truly help you, you are no longer alone.
