FAQ

Nothing seems to help with my stress, is this course right for me?

During the workshops, we will cover a lot of different topics. Some will be familiar to you but a lot will be new or unfamiliar. We’ll also make sure that you understand why certain strategies are helpful and talk about how you can start to commit to making changes in your life now.


I see that the course includes hypnosis, is it safe?

Hypnosis is completely safe. It is a tool that can be used for a variety of issues and conditions. It is one of the most researched therapy techniques and the evidence shows that it is good at reducing stress and anxiety. Hypnosis is really just a state of focused attention, of concentrating on the suggestions that are made. It is particularly good at creating a state of deep relaxation.


I am already seeing my doctor for stress (or other issues), can I still come along?

These sessions are going to be helpful for most people, because they include lots of practical tools that you can start to use in your life on a regular basis. However, it is not a replacement for medical treatment. Please call me (in confidence) first if you have any concerns, so that we can see whether the course is suitable for you.


Do I have to practice at home?

The course is split across 2 weeks so that you get the chance to practice in between sessions. Just as you won’t become a better guitar player if you don’t practice in between lessons, you won’t get better at managing your stress if you are not willing to practice the strategies taught.
