The Initial Consultation


Why an Initial Consultation?


You might be wondering, “Why do I need an initial consultation?” Think of it as the first step towards positive change. This consultation isn’t just a formality; it’s a crucial part of our process. Here’s why:


1. Understanding Your Unique Needs: Just as every individual is unique, so are your challenges and aspirations. During our initial consultation, we take the time to get to know you, your goals, and your concerns. This helps us tailor our approach specifically to your needs.


2. Building Trust and Rapport: Trust is the foundation of any successful therapeutic relationship.  The initial consultation is where we start building that trust and rapport.


3. Exploring Hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy might be new to you, and that’s perfectly okay. In the initial consultation, we demystify hypnotherapy, explaining how it works and addressing any questions you may have.


What We Cover in Your Initial Consultation:


Our initial consultations are designed to be informative, supportive, and insightful. Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect:


1. Personal History: We’ll discuss your personal history, including any relevant medical or psychological information. This helps us understand the bigger picture of your life and challenges.


2. Goal Setting: Together, we’ll set clear and achievable goals for your hypnotherapy journey. Whether it’s overcoming anxiety, breaking a habit, or enhancing your well-being, we’ll define your path to success.


3. Hypnotherapy Process: We’ll explain the hypnotherapy process and address any concerns you may have. It’s essential that you feel comfortable and informed every step of the way.


4. Questions and Answers: Your questions are valuable. Feel free to ask anything you’d like to know about hypnotherapy or the therapeutic process. We’re here to provide clarity and guidance.


5. Customised Plan: Based on our conversation, we’ll outline a personalised hypnotherapy plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. This plan will serve as your roadmap to positive change.

The Therapy Sessions: Your Journey to Transformation


Each therapy session with us is a step towards achieving your personal goals. While we can provide guidance on what a typical session might look like, it’s important to remember that your therapeutic journey is uniquely yours, and we tailor our techniques to suit your specific needs.


What to Expect in a Typical Session


1. Warm Welcome: You’ll always be greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. Stepping into a therapy session can be a mix of anticipation and excitement, so we’re here to make you feel comfortable from the start.


2. Check-In: We’ll begin by checking in with you, asking about any developments or insights since your last session. This helps us track your progress and adjust our approach as needed.


3. Open Dialogue: Throughout the session, we encourage open and honest communication. Feel free to share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. This dialogue is essential for understanding your progress and addressing any challenges.


4. Exercises and Insights: Depending on your goals, we’ll engage in specific exercises or discussions designed to promote self-awareness, personal growth, and positive change. These may vary from session to session.


5. Guided Relaxation: Many sessions begin with a guided relaxation exercise. It’s an opportunity for you to unwind, focus, and prepare for the therapeutic work ahead. You’ll find this to be a calming and rejuvenating experience.


6. Therapeutic Techniques: This is where the magic happens. Based on your needs and goals, we’ll introduce and explain the therapeutic techniques we’ll be using in the session. Whether it’s hypnotherapy, mindfulness, psychotherapy techniques, or a combination of methods, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and informed.


7. Take Homes: Sometimes, we’ll suggest exercises or activities for you to practice between sessions. These “Take Homes” are designed to reinforce and accelerate your progress.


8. Reflection and Feedback: We’ll wrap up each session with a moment of reflection, allowing you to share your thoughts on the session and any insights gained. Your feedback is invaluable in shaping the next steps of your journey.


Remember, each therapy session is as unique as you are. Our approach is flexible and adaptable, ensuring that your individual needs are met.

Ricky has helped me so much in recent months in my recovery following a serious cycling accident. The techniques he uses - hypnotherapy and guided visualisation are gentle and leave me feeling calmer and able to face my fears and anxieties. Highly recommend Ricky if you need help the way I did.

A few months ago I contacted Ricky to help me overcome my nail biting habit using hypnosis. The therapy worked wonders and I have pretty much broken the habit completely. I would recommend this hypnotherapy to anyone looking to break a self destructive habit.

Couldn’t recommend Ricky enough, started sessions with him a while back and had 1-2 sessions a week and it helped me massively, felt refreshed and reset after each session, wouldn’t go to anyone else if I needed more help in the future

Having lived with ptsd since being involved in a car accident more than 15yrs ago, I was struggling with travelling as a passenger in a car and would be a horrendous, anxious, aggressive person while in that seat. The tension nd stress I would hold in my body throughout the whole journey, would ruin the day/event etc. It was time to change this , it wasn't fair on the people I travelled with and I wasn't being fair to myself either. I had seen Ricky on Facebook and followed him for a while. I thought, 'what the heck, let's give it a go'. Of course I was sceptical but I was open to trying anything, to help me overcome this debilitating ptsd. Nothing had helped so far. Ricky was extremely helpful, he explained what the process was and what would happen during our sessions, he was very calm, friendly and approachable. I felt like I could tell him anything, putting my complete trust in him. After one session, I honestly don't know how he's done it or what he did, but I have been able to travel as a passenger on short and longer journeys without the anxiety and need to control the driver and their actions. I get to my destination, get out the car feeling relaxed, instead of exhausted and tearful. Sometimes, I can't even remember getting from A to B! Ricky is a wizard and I am forever grateful that I found him!

Been almost 5 weeks since I went to see Ricky for hypnotherapy to stop smoking. Ricky is so welcoming and very easy to get along with, he makes you feel totally comfortable throughout the whole experience and is also on hand to reassure you during after care if needed. Thank you so much Ricky.. Would 100 % recommend hypnotherapy is considering quitting smoking.

I saw Ricky with a 15 year anxiety phobia which was removed within 30 mins. Ricky is professional and punctual and has a way of making you feel really at ease. It was a very relaxing session with the ultimate outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Ricky!

Soo what can I say!! I have suffered from big anxiety from driving even tho I passed my test 6 years ago I had an enormous fear of driving on my own. After 2 sessions with Ricky all my fear has gone and I'm driving without a problem! Ricky makes you feel at ease throughout his sessions and has really worked wonders with me!! Its changed the way I look at things and my life for the better. I would recommend Calmer minds for anyone that's having similar problems.

As an anxious learner driver the driving audio is helping massively. Even after listening once it helped me to relax and ground myself!

Getting older the stresses and stains of life seemed to catch up with me, that coupled with isolation and lockdown through the pandemic I had lost all desire, drive and direction in my life. I felt flat and lost, lost of confidence and purpose. I knew something needed to change, I needed to change and that’s when Calmer minds came into my life and changed everything. Calmer Minds have been absolutely fantastic start to finish, form first initial consultation all the way through my weekly sessions with after care and support. The experience was very welcoming, friendly and uplifting to let go of a lot of the negative self imposed mental barriers that were holding me back and has helped me gain confidence and self belief back. The process has undoubtedly helped me regain my confidence and self belief back, I handle the stresses of everyday living and a high pressure career with more ease and have actually thrived and performed above a level I haven’t in years. I would most definitely recommend everyone no matter what you’re going through how big or small, go talk to Calmer Minds, working with them has changed my life drastically.
