What To Expect

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.


Your initial consultation is the first step towards your brighter future. It’s an opportunity for you to take control and embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation.

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.

Anxiety was slowly creeping back, and starting to affect my everyday life. From the smallest of things to even meals out, enjoyable things that shouldn’t be stressful. We had a family holiday coming up and i knew i needed to get this sorted. I went to see Ricky and was instantly at ease, along with being possibly the nicest guy ever, he is calm, happy to listen and a great person to be around, which made it instantly easy to open up and talk through everything, i left it a bit late, but Ricky managed to see me 4 times before we went away on holiday. I’m happy to say we went on our family holiday and we done everything we wanted to do with ease and a new mindset going into each situation. The hypnotherapy sessions were something to behold and i would look forward to them each time. I’ve seen Ricky since being back from holiday and he was honest and said he could see a difference and a new confidence. which made me feel great. Ricky still txts and checks in with me often. He genuinely cares. He genuinely makes a difference. And for that I can’t thank him enough. What a guy and what an positive experience. I would highly recommend Ricky and his services to anyone going through any unwanted anxiety or stress no matter how small. Thanks Ricky.

The calmer minds relaxing your driving test nerves download was a big help to me, I used it everyday for 5 days before my practical test and passed first time! After using the download I didn't feel a single nerve for my driving test and anyone that knows me knows how much of a nervous person I am! 10/10 would recommend 🌟

I am the co-owner of a local driving school. Myself and my other drivers have been using the Test Anxiety downloads on our pupils to great effect. Our pupils have all seen positive changes and the increase in driver confidence is amazing. Many of our anxious pupils have passed their driving test first time with all of them saying the anxiety downloads made a big difference to their mindset. We would highly recommend Calmer Minds Hypnotherapy to everyone.

I had hypnotherapy with Ricky for 8 sessions for anxiety, he has been amazing and the results from when I first saw him have been incredible. I didn't know if this therapy was going to work as previously I have had talking therapies so I just went in with an open mind and now I am enjoying life, my work and has helped with my relationships. He has a very calming manner, good listener and very understanding and caring. So if anyone needs an excellent Hypnotherapist, please choose Ricky Chambers. He is based in Faversham and I live in Gravesend, the drive was worth the experience.

I was stuck in a bit of a rut a few months ago, anxiety over took my life. I did some research for help and came across calmer minds. They were local to me and at this point I was willing to give anything a try, I booked my first session with Ricky and as soon as I met him he made me feel calm, I knew I could trust him so I booked my following sessions... all I can say is I cannot thank him enough for turning my life around, I have become a different person to who I was only a couple of months ago. He has helped my days become so much more manageable and I am able to now enjoy life without over worrying too much. I will definitely recommend to everyone! If I ever had any more problems in the future I wouldn't go anywhere else other than here. My life has changed for the best and I thank Ricky for that.

I can’t recommend this enough. I have always struggled with weight loss, always being able to start well but unable to overcome the hurdles that have been in my way. Ricky has been very understanding and has helped me overcome this. I have a new mindset with weight loss and generally being healthier. It’s kick started me to train for a half marathon and I feel healthier and happier than ever. If you’re thinking about doing it, then do it!

Struggling with a needle phobia my whole life I was looking for recommendations for hypnotherapy. I was quite sceptical if this would work for me but I now know that was the fear talking. I wish I had done this sooner. THANK YOU!

I smoked for approximately 25 years and tried lots of methods to stop, none of which worked. Then I had a smoking cessation appointment with Ricky at the start of April and have not smoked since, and no cravings either. I felt safe and secure throughout the session and was relaxed and at ease. There is no lying down on a couch and you are aware of what is happening and being said whilst under hypnosis. I have already felt some health benefits, my chest does not get tight when I walk and I don't sound wheazy and breathless. Give it a go if you want the easy and simple way to stop.
