Cancellations: Please note 24 hours notice of cancellation is required by email, text, or phone in order to qualify for a full refund. You will be charged for your session if no notification of cancellation is received.  Missed appointments and late cancellations represent a cost to the practice, to you and to other clients who could have been seen in the time set aside for you. Failed appointments can sometimes interfere with your treatment and create unnecessary scheduling problems for other clients. 

Failure to provide us with 24 hours advance notice or failure to present for a scheduled appointment will result in a cancellation or no show fee. This fee will reflect the cost of your appointment. It is understandable that sometimes cancellations can not be helped due to illness or emergency and we will take all valid circumstances into account. Our goal in communicating our cancellation and failed to attend policy is to avoid any extra charges being passed on to the patient.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Will I be 'out of it' during any hypnosis?

Not at all!

Hypnosis from the Greek word Hypnos - or sleep - is really a misnomer as during hypnosis you are not in any way asleep (or in a trance), just naturally mentally and physically relaxed at the same time as being mentally focused.

In fact there is no such thing as a special hypnotised feeling. Hypnosis is a very ordinary and pleasant state where there is just a profound sense of relaxation along with a focus of ones concentration that is induced by suggestion.

There is no mind control, brainwashing or manipulation as is a common misconception gleaned from stage hypnotist shows and television portrayals of hypnosis. The truth of the matter is hypnosis is quite the opposite. It's a heightened sense of awareness on all levels of senses, concentration and creativity, that when guided correctly opens up an immensely powerful force for change for the better good of the individual. For example while in this relaxed state the mind finds it easier to accept beneficial suggestions e.g. "You are now a non-smoker".

Another myth to be dispelled is that some people cannot be hypnotised. Anyone in a reasonably sober state of mind can reach the relaxed state of hypnosis. In fact we all do so naturally several times a day without the help of a hypnotherapist! We've all experienced that blurry stage between sleep and awake, or been engrossed watching a gripping movie, zoned out long distance driving, or been lost in a hobby or work to the point where you lose track of time. These are all "states of hypnosis", just without the suggestion part which is where I come in!

You are quite free to converse, move around and so on in hypnosis and you will remember (probably more clearly than normal) what's said in the session.

You will be able to drive and go about your normal every day business straight after your session (although you may feel considerably better than you did before!).

All sessions are available from our private practice in Colchester Essex​​​, or UK and Worldwide online with Essex based therapist Alice Pinion. Arrange your free initial consult.
