RTT is hugely influential and is growing in popularity because of its life-changing effects. RTT is ground-breaking. It’s a hybrid technology, taking and improving upon many previous techniques and combining them in a single methodology. It is a simple, safe, natural, and proven approach. I have witnessed GPs endorsing it, and even scientists are testing it.

There are many misperceptions of hypnosis, but I assure you that you’ll be completely safe. You’ll be awake, fully aware of what’s happening, and alert throughout the session.

We have all seen the TV and stage shows but no, in hypnosis you’ll not be clucking or mooing! You are fully awake and aware and you can’t be made to do anything or even taken into hypnosis against your will. You remain in control at all times.

Clients generally feel comfortable and relaxed during the sessions. There is nothing to be frightened of as it’s an entirely natural state of calmness. Sometimes, scenes may be emotional, but you are not reliving anything, merely reviewing them with the therapist’s support.

Clients react differently following the session, depending on what comes up and what is being worked on. Change is retroactive, subtle, and is not always ‘instant’’ However, some clients leave feeling euphoric, and some leave feeling a sense of reflection or wonder. Either way, the effect takes time to ‘soak in’ as you continue to discover more about yourself and listen to your post-session recording. Irrespective of how you feel, there will be post-session follow-up, and you will be able to make contact and talk.

Everyone can be hypnotized because it’s a natural state, so you don’t need to worry. This is about teamwork, and for sessions to be successful, it helps that clients want to participate and make the change. So, as long as you wish to enter hypnosis, you will. So relax and enjoy the experience.

There is a confidentiality policy in place. All clients have assured confidentiality about any disclosed material, per professional codes of conduct. Safeguarding policies are also in place to protect children and vulnerable adults. In cases where clients’ welfare is deemed “at risk, ” it might be necessary to contact the relevant authorities, usually with the client’s consent. However, in typical cases, client confidentiality is upheld, and files are stored appropriately and destroyed according to the appropriate laws.

Yes, Zoom sessions are just as practical as face-to-face meetings, and over 60% of sessions are currently held online. Online fits around people’s busy lives and clients enjoy this freedom.

RTT gives us access to the root cause of the belief system sitting behind the symptoms. In effect, the presenting issues are often symptomatic of an underlying issue. Once we find the problem or the belief, it’s relatively easy to release them and change the view to something more beneficial. Generally, it will take one session per issue. Sometimes, clients benefit from two or a maximum of three sessions for longer-term problems, such as long-term depression or anxiety.

RTT includes regressions back to scenes, as it helps us to locate the root cause or belief sitting behind an issue. Regression is not about re-living the experience; it’s about reviewing and observing a scene so that we can make sense of the significance, relevance, and meaning attributed to it. Some locations may bring up sadness, upset, or joy, but whatever happens, as an adult, you will feel completely safe as you observe.

I am based in Stockport Town Centre, 10 minutes walk from the Train Station. I hold virtual clinics online, seeing clients across the globe using Skype/Zoom/Facetime, as RTT is equally effective online, with the added convenience for busy lives.

For the majority of my clients they have only needed 1-2 sessions. However I do offer a coaching and mentoring service so we can stay in touch. Your initial appointment/discovery call is free and is for you to ask me questions and we can assess your needs.
