Because life isn’t a rehearsal
Tailor made hypnotherapy in Nottingham
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions that I haven’t answered. There is no such thing as a silly question as i would have asked it before!! I would love to add anything else to this page to help others if you want to ask me via email or my Facebook page
How much is a session?
A single session is £70.00
Depending on the issue we may need to have more than one session, I strongly recommend that you purchase the 4Change Package (bespoke structure of 3 sessions) for £200.00 as opposed to single payments of £70.00 a session. Single sessions can add stress to a client’s experience as they are so set on the change they struggle to relax. This 4Change programme saves you money and allows you to become absorbed into the session as we follow a specific process.
What is the 4Change Programme?
The 4Change Programme is the main programme I focus on, this is 3 sessions which follow a specific healing modality. It consists of a specific journey which we focus on uncovering the root issue, removing the trauma, anger release and forgiveness. We go on a journey and I check in on with my clients daily so there is ongoing support.
How long is a session? I have paid £90 for 1 hour before?
I don’t charge by time. I go by session! Most sessions tend to be 1 -1.5 hours, they can overrun as my focus is you (as opposed to watching the clock). My sessions are scheduled and spaced out throughout the day to ensure I give you the attention and care you deserve.
I have PTSD and have tried EMDR and numerous therapies – can you really help me?
I personally don’t like EMDR or most trauma therapy as it takes you through the actual event to release it. My methods don’t do that and quite often I have seen clients laugh away the trauma as I pride myself on not making it feel like therapy. I have helped over 350 people now walk away from PTSD. Most of my reviews for the PTSD and CPTSD clients is on my Mindblocks Facebook page
How do I pay for a session?
You can pay by BACS transfer or PayPal – I do not accept cash. I don’t want it in the house and prefer electronic records for my book keeping due to my insurance etc.
What is the difference between Hypnotherapy and counselling?
Great question! Both use talking techniques but I would describe counselling as dealing with things from the outside in, e.g. current events, external factors affecting things. I think Counselling is much more reactive and although can temporarily relieve emotions, it is unlikely to have a lasting effect. (Until the next session!! Whereas I regard hypnotherapy as fixing things from the inside out, if a block at source is resolved, healed, removed (whichever word you want to choose) then the things that could affect us at surface level tend to have a much lesser impact on because the hypnosis will change your entire neurological landscape
What is hypnosis like?
Do you ever drive home and think how did I get there or day dream when watching the TV? Well that is Hypnosis !!
I would describe targeted hypnosis as like a sleepy day dream – it is very relaxing, very calming and often and usually described by my clients as “really pleasant” contrary to popular belief it is impossible to get stuck in hypnosis. As you are in complete control the entire time, you can’t do anything you don’t want to do and you won’t say anything you don’t want to say. The worst thing that could happen is that you are so deeply relaxed you could fall asleep! I have helped over 250 people and it has never happened yet.
Do you do online sessions?
Absolutely, Hypnotherapy works brilliantly over the internet. I have worked with many international friends from the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa as well as many wonderful people across the United Kingdom.
Suppose I don’t want to talk about something that comes to mind? Do I relive the experience?
Quite a lot of the time I do Hypnosis in a content free manor and the change still occurs. This means that you don’t even have to talk about the scene in any detail (particularly if traumatic) you are free to manage within the privacy of your own mind. I would simply facilitate and use an array of applications to release the meaning you attached to the event without you needing to re-traumatise yourself at all.
How many sessions will I need?
This is always going to depend on the type of issue, the amount of work that needs doing and the approach we choose together. We need a structured approach to neutralise any misconceptions we have absorbed along the way. I often find that the presenting problem is not usually the main issue and the mind will take us where it needs to go to find a resolution. I suggest the 4Change programme as 99% of my clients do this.
How will I feel after my session?
What a great question! I love it when clients feel lighter and more positive. Sometimes energy release shows itself in many forms. You might feel like you need to drink more water, you might cough more, need to pee more or need a relaxed few days to process. I would say that any form of energy release is positive and your unique bodies way of letting go of an old pattern is a good sign.
Are you going to turn me into a chicken?
I think of Hypnosis and hypnotherapy as two completely different things! Hypnosis is usually used for entertainment purposes, whereas hypnotherapy is extremely respectful of the mind and employs a hypnotic trance to communicate safely with the sub-conscious mind. The best thing to do is to jump on the phone with me where I do all the talking and you don’t have to disclose anything but I explain what Hypnotherapy is and what it isn’t and how and why it works differently to CBT and counselling. Then if you like the sound of it then we can get you booked in for your healing journey.
Can I be hypnotised?
Have you ever cried at a film, or jumped at a scary part in that film? Then you have been hypnotised! The truth is we go in and out of hypnosis numerous times a day. Whenever you day dream of become absorbed in a book, TV programme or within your imagination then you have experienced hypnosis.
What is Heals on wheels?
I introduced this home visit service with those suffering from anxiety in mind, life isn’t a rehearsal and I don’t believe people should be struggling to get through life. The service is available in Nottinghamshire, if you fall out of this and really want a home visit please contact me in the first instance as these need to be reviewed on a case by case basis.
How much is Heals on wheels?
This will always be the cost of a session at £70.00 plus an additional 0.80p per mile in fuel to cover wear and tear from NG4 2 (within 30 miles). If you are located outside of my radius and would like a home visit, please contact me to discuss.
What are the working hours?
Mon – Sun 8.00am – 21.00pm – I will always try and accommodate your lifestyle as best I can.
I have tried hypnosis before and failed – why will you be any different? Do you offer a refund if it fails to work?
Hypnosis is a consent state based on trust between the hypnotherapist and the client. It is like a dance that you have to trust the therapist to lead in order to guide you. You have to have rapport with your chosen hypnotherapist, you have to be comfortable and be free of any fears or doubts before entering into the trance state. It could simply be that you had selected the wrong hypnotherapist suitable to you. Payment covers the cost of my time, skillset and application. Some of the responsibility sits with you. You could resist hypnosis but that is not why you are here.
What is your success rate?
Success is difficult to measure accurately but the vast majority of my clients are satisfied with the treatment and care they receive. Quite often we allow the mind to take us the direction it needs to go. If I can’t help a client quite often the unconscious mind will tell us why – such as a current issue in the client’s life is not resolved and must be first before the presenting problem can be removed. Sometimes just this information in itself can lead to resolution as it unlocks a conscious understanding.
What is the relaxation session you offer – no therapy – I call it the “Healing Light” it is ideal for busy minds, stress relief or just to experience relaxation without the need for therapy, this is currently £40.00 for a 1 hour session. The healing light re-aligns us emotionally, physically and mentally.
Is there parking?
Mindblocks is run from a residential address there is on road parking and a drop kerbed drive to block.
Do you have a toilet for use?
To access the therapy room (which we calling the healing HQ it is accessed via a separate entrance to the house and the toilet is accessible without going through the house etc.
Do you do Gift Vouchers?
I can do and have offered gift vouchers in the past. My only advice is to make sure that the recipient truly wants the help as opposed to somebody thinking they want to change.
* You deserve to be more than scribbles in a therapist’s notebook…
This whole experience with Adam has been challenging and completely eye opening. The experience identified that my anxiety was only a distraction from other things that I was not dealing with. It has made me see the world through new eyes and has made me deal with, and make peace with my past. Adam has supported me every step of the way. Although I still do feel anxious in some instances after the hypnotherapy, I now understand it more and can handle it effectively. I would 100% recommend this service. Adam adapts his technique to each individual and will stick with you for the whole of your journey. My advice would be to go into it open minded and to not expect your fear to be recovered instantly, it may identify other things that you did not expect.
Aimee from East Mids
I arranged an online session with Adam to address my anxiety – the session took a major change in direction which Adam insisted to allow to direct and despite having had a light frog in my throat/ grunting cough for over 40 years he concentrated on that and we went back to where it began, spoke to the younger me and I haven’t coughed since! I am still in shock and can’t believe it (which Adam tells me not to say so my mind continues to believe) oddly my anxiety has dramatically reduced too, I have been to the mall on my own which is something I haven’t done for years!! All this in the space of 1 hour and thousands of miles apart ….I am still lost for words and that is a first, I would have paid 10 times the amount for the freedom this has given me, I am planning to take the kids to the beach for the day soon, one step at a time.
Angela from Melbourne
I recently started to learn how to drive and had a bad experience at the beginning of my lessons that made me extremely nervous and was putting me on the verge of quitting all together. However, Adam managed to change my belief that driving was dangerous and get me to enjoy driving again. He was calm, compassionate and understanding of the fear. The environment was welcoming and he had a really great energy. After one session I felt more positive about driving but didn’t want to believe my nerves had gone until my next lesson. After that lesson it confirmed that my nerves had disappeared and now I’m now a more confident driver than ever before.
Sarah from East Mids
I first went to Adam with the problem with anxiety; I had tried a talk therapist, mindfulness apps, and even bought into so many things that would cure me. None of them worked until I contacted Adam and at first I was nervous not knowing about hypnosis, I thought he was going to make me be a goat! But Adam greeted me in a professional manner and made me feel at ease straight away and then went on to describe what was going to happen. Very quickly I felt more relaxed and he talked me through the next stages, and never once did I feel nervous. The hypnosis part was very relaxing and I felt as if I could just go to sleep (the chair is very comfortable!) but Adam kept me talking and soon enough he was giving me hypnotherapy. After the session I felt emotional but Adam assured me that a lot of things had come up and it was completely normal.
