Frequently Asked QuestionsThese FAQs are intended to help you understand how we can help you. Taking part in any form of therapy can seem a bit daunting, even if you are confident it is going to help you with your problems. Your mind can be full of questions and doubts. 

Here are just a few of the questions (FAQs) we have been asked in the past but if you need to ask us any further questions please e-mail:  clem@clemturner.co.uk or mags@clemturner.co.uk

How do I choose a good Hypnotherapist?

Make sure you choose a Hypnotherapist with sufficient experience and qualifications. They should be accepted on the General Hypnotherapy Register, the National Council for Hypnotherapists, or another professional Hypnotherapy Organisation.

I’d like to ask if you can solve all my problems?

No, we cannot solve all your problems, but we can listen to you and work with you in the issues that you face. We will always tailor our treatments to suit each individual client as everyone is different. We will always encourage you to use the new skills you will develop. They will help you to face the challenges of the modern world. Naturally, you are welcome to ask any questions at any time.

If you put me in a trance will you have power over me?

No – not at all, you will always remain in complete control and you would be able to come out of the trance anytime you wish to. Contrary to popular belief, you will not be asleep or ‘put out’ at any time. Trance is basically a form of deep relaxation, you will be aware of everything that happens at all times.

What about confidentiality?

We will always treat you in the strictest confidence. We lock up all records and keep them in complete safety, and we won’t usually discuss your treatment with a third party.  The only exception to this is if it necessary for us to consult with your doctor or psychiatrist.

How many consultations will I need?

Each case is different. We will determine together how many sessions you will need when we have our first consultation.

What if I am taking medication or seeing a psychiatrist?

Usually it is quite safe to undertake Hypnosis when you are on medication.  If you are in any doubt it would be a good idea to contact your doctor. If you are seeing a psychiatrist when you approach us for Hypnotherapy we will always ask you if we can contact them. This is to make sure that any treatment we may give you will not contradict the type of treatment they are giving you. Hypnotherapy is not an alternative to medical care.

My question is: Does it work?

Yes it does but as with all therapies, medication etc, it does not ‘cure everything’. It is not a magic pill and we don’t have a magic wand. However it’s one of the most effective methods of dealing with many issues.  It has the ability to positively assist or improve a wide range of complaints. And we have a really impressive success rate – see our testimonials!

We hope these FAQs will help alleviate any concerns you may have. However, please feel free to contact us regarding anything not answered above. We welcome your questions.
